**** MORNING SURF UP-DATE **** Good morning surfers and welcome back for the baliwaves.com daily surf and weather report . Well at least we have a big turn around so far weather wise this morning, but still no improvement in wave height.
I did the surf recon of the Outer Reefs at 6.30am and wave height between Kuta Reef and Airport Left is still only showing in the 0-1ft class. The wind has also turned away from the WSW quadrant and is now coming outta the NW @ 4-7knot . Thatâ€™s still blowing on-shore but at least itâ€™s a more positive change. Tide wise, not that it makes much difference.. The next tide will be a 1.7mtr High @ 9.00am and then folled by a 1.0mtr Low around 2.30pm .
Looking for a wave youâ€™d be best off heading over to the East Coast down around the southern end of the island and ya might find aomething in the waist to shoulder high range if your lucky. At least the wind will be clean off-shore.
Weather wise on the baliwaves.com 0-10 weather scale she gets a 7-10. Thereâ€™s plenty of blue sky above us this morning but still a bitta cloud drifting about. Expected top temperature should be around the 28-30 degree Celsius mark. The water temperature is just as good currently sitting around the 23-24 degree Celsius mark.
Tomorrow the charts are starting to show a small pulse of new swell and hopefully weâ€™ll have a few waves (fingers crossed) around Friday. In the mean time Iâ€™m just gunna be servicing my little traditional fishing boat, getting her ready for some trolling in the very near future. BTW if you are a keen fisherman and want to do some big game sport fishing on your next Bali visit drop me a line and Iâ€™ll help ya get hooked up. And for the super keen more adventure type surfer / fisho check out the new banner we have over on the right hand side of the page. But thatâ€™s only if you can handle pulling in 40-100 pound GTâ€™s off the beach .
Ok the boys from up at the KANDUI SURF RESORT in the MENTAWAI ISLANDS have sent us through some more photos and surf up-dates and you can find them in the Surf Report menue on the right hand side of this page. Scotto has also been out shooting some photos along Australiaâ€™s Northern coastal region and youâ€™ll find his material in the same section under READERS REPORTS . Actually Iâ€™ll be looking forward to Scott getting back to Bali and helping us out on the photo department. Especially now heâ€™s shooting from behind a brand new Cannon f2.8, 300mm with 2 x convertor connected.
Donâ€™t forget if any of you lot want to grab some photos or video footage surfing here in Bali and we can easily arrange it for ya. Hey and do us a favor and buy a baliwaves.com T-SHIRT and help us to keep running this stuff, I donâ€™t think many of you donâ€™t really know how much time, effort and money we put into the running of baliwaves.com . You can find the link over on the right hand side of this page in the MENUE . I tell yaâ€™s what Iâ€™ll give the first 50 surfers AU$10.00 off the price but youâ€™ll have to email us first ok ! I also have a very limited number of baliwaves t-shirts here in Bali so drop me a line if you want to pick one up here in Bali .
Money saver tip #752 : Anyone wanting to get out on a 3 island 7 day boat charter to Lembongan, Lombok and Sumbawa drop me a line cause I was talking to an operator last night and heâ€™s offering the all inclusive trips for just AU$600.00 !!! Start organizing your crew now for the recommencement of these charters in March 08. Better still charter the boat privately with up to 10 of your friends for AU$6,000. all inclusive.
if your looking for a cheap, clean and 100% surfer friendly place to HOME BASE in Bali . Airconditioned rooms starting from AU$13.00 a night per single room and fan cooled rooms @ AU$8.00 per single room, here in Bali, and only a 10 minute walk down to the beach and Outer Reefs here in friendly Tuban .
If itâ€™s something a little more private youâ€™r looking for take a look at the private bungalow for rent we have in our Business Directory and drop the owner Michael Owen an email. Michael is one of the old school surfers who rubs shoulders with the likes of Gerry Lopez and Peter McCabe just to name a couple of Indo Legends.
Finally, I just wanna refresh yaâ€™s about what baliwaves.com is all about . Weâ€™re not trying to flog yaâ€™s surf trips or sell yaâ€™s anything for that matter, weâ€™re just trying to show yaâ€™s how good it is here in Bali / Indonesia for a surfing holiday. We want you guys to come over and have a ball and then go back home and tell your friends how good it is.
