**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Good morning crew and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves.com daily surf and weather report. Ok my 6.30am surf check of the Outer Reefs here in Tuban was showing a further drop in size but there were still some waves breaking in the 1-2ft+ range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left . The tide was all but on the bottom of a 0.2mtr Low and the wind was light off-shore outta the NE @ 0.1knot . Nothing really worth surfing on Kuta Reef or Airports but ya coulda found a wave or two at Middle Reef . No surfers in sight while I was on the beach.
We might just take advantage of the clean and calm conditions this morning has to offer and head down to Uluwatu , just for something different, lol. I also bumped into my mate Devis Ratif while I was out earlier and he was on his way up to Keramas. He said that there were some perfect llittle waves in the 3ft or head high range up there for the “crew” yesterday.
Weather wise it’s looking good out there for now with blue sky and hardly any wind for that matter. It’s a pretty safe bet to say the mercury will be creep’n into the low 30’s on the Celsius scale. While the water temperature remains at a very boardshort friendly 24 degree’s Celsius. I’ll have a look at the the swell prediction and synoptic charts later on this evening and give ya’s my estimate on what we can expect over the coming week.
Yet another would be ex-pat sent me an email telling baliwaves.com not to show you photos of their private waves here on Bali….. LOL This time from a girl, claiming baliwaves.com does nothing for the local community and only makes it harder for them (certain ex-pats) to find a nice and empty wave so that they can have a peaceful surf without you tourist getting in their way. This fools email address is [email protected] if anyone would like to make a comment directly to her. Now to me people who tell me not to promote Bali are the same as TERRORISTS, they don’t want to see Westerners here in Bali. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with ex-pats ? There are some really cool ex-pats living here that mind their own stuff and enjoy the Balinese type of lifestyle. When in Rome do as the Romans I always say. Some of em though just don’t get it that this is Bali in the year 2008 and that surfing is a very popular sport these days and that Bali is a very popular surf destination these days.
