**** AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** Howdy friends of Bali and thanks for stopping by for nthe run down on todays surf and weather conditions around Bali . Well as yaâ€™s can see in these latest photos to come outta Bali the boys and I from Home Base scored some pretty darn nice waves toda y.
I didnâ€™t get to check conditions here on the Outer Reefs of Tuban until after we got back from our little road trip. But when I did get a look wave height was only just showing in the 0.5 â€“ 1ft range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left . The wind was good coming outta the ESE-SE @ 2-5knot and off-shore , but too small for surfing. I also had a couple of phone calls from one of my local friends down at Uluwatu and he was calling Uluwatu breaking at 2-3ft on the Main Peak, with upto 30 surfers in the line-up.
Where we were today wave height at times was pushing a solid 4ft and when we arrived at 6.45am the wind was also clean off-shore but there werenâ€™t no other surfers in sight until at least 8.30am. And then it was just 3 other very friendly Japanese who didnâ€™t mind sharing some waves. Sometime around 11.00am the wind shifted to the ESE-SE but only very light so surfing conditions were still clean and glassy .
We surfed until 1.00pm before pulling the plug and making the drive back to Tuban. The overall crowd woulda peaked at 10 surfers , and for our last session there was just the four of us out there taking turns on the set waves . Not a bad day and right now my arms and legs are feeling like jelly. But I think weâ€™ll be heading back up there for another dawn patrol session again tomorrow. The boys from Kandui Surf Resort up in the Mentawaiâ€™s have also sent through some more photos of there current waves so make sure ya take a peak at whatâ€™s been happening up in the Ments before ya shut down.
Weather wise today on the baliwaves.com 0-10 scale Iâ€™ve gotta give her a 10 outta 10. Just blue sky, sunshine and sunburn was the call.
Iâ€™ll also try and get everyone thatâ€™s been involved with our â€œSCHOOL PROJECTâ€ brought up to date with the progress up at Datah Primary School as soon as I can get the time to type up a report and edit the latest photos from todayâ€™s trip.
