**** AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** Howdy my find friends of Bali and thanks for cruising into the baliwaves.com for the daily dose of Bali and surf and weather info . Well as per usual I went down for the 6.30am surf recon of the Outer Reefs here in Tuban. Wave height had appeared to have taken a good kicking and was down in the 1-2ft range between Kuta Reef and Airport left. The wind was blowing fairly stiff outta the WNW and on-shore @ 5-8knot .
The boys from Home Base were still not content and decided on heading to the East Coast to see what was happening at Nusa Dua . Wave height at Geger Beach (Nusa Dua) was also only just pushing 2-4ft but with the wind clean off-shore through till around midday when she shifted around to the SSW and cross/on-shore . The boys reckoned it was pretty ordinary and I’d have to agree with them on that. No new photos today but I did manage to get ya’s another New Video Clip loaded up and at least that is worth a look.
Weather wise it’s been a real nice day around Bali and on the old 0-10 weather scale I’d have to give her a 7, only because the wind shifted to the SSW.
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta you’ll find that 1US $=Rp9,100 –1AU$=Rp8,400 – 1EU$=Rp13,275
