**** EVENING SURF UP-DATE **** Hello crew and thanks for dropping in to see whatâ€™s been happening surf and weather wis e here in Bali , via the one and only original baliwaves.com.
Well we got off to a late start this morning around here at Home Base Bali, we got a bit crazy last night, drinking tequila suicides , seeing as though some of the boys staying with us will soon be leaving Bali and heading back home. There wasnâ€™t much happening on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban with wave height only showing in the 1-2ft+ range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left .
With the Full Moon rising tonight the first of todays tides was a 2.5mtr High around 10.00am and then we had a reef exposing 0.2mtr Low around 4.00pm this afternoon. The wind has been coming outta the ESE-SE, blowing off-shore between Legian and Uluwatu .
As yaâ€™s can see in these latest photos outta Ind onesia the boys and I went for a cruise down to Bingin for the low tide to see what was going on. Once again these photos kinda make it look a lot better than what it really was. There was a long wait between anything that actually broke, and when they did it was right on the reef with a mere 1 foot of water covering it. Wave height woulda only been in the 1-2ft+ range with only 3 surfers in the
Dreamland: A lot of people have asked me about whats happening down at the once beautiful beach called Dreamland. Well the word is that all the warungs and caféâ€™s have been pulled down for a developers dream. Just about all the sand has been washed away and the place is looking very sad, so are the locals who were once making a life down there. Check out photos number 8 and 9 to see how Dreamland looks todayâ€¦â€¦
Weather wise on the baliwaves.com scale of weather weâ€™d have to give her a 8-10 for the blue sky and sunshine. Todays maximum tempe rature woulda easily busted through into the 30â€™s Celsius. The water tempe rature is still perfect at 24 degreeâ€™s Celsius.
Datah Primary School : My next visit to the shool will be on the 23rd of this mont h and hopefully Iâ€™ll be able to show you some photos of the completed wall and new gate. I also have another batch of tex t books and colouring in pencils and other stuff to del iver for the kids.
Surfboard Tax outta Bali : There is noneâ€¦. And the people responsible for spreading that economy damaging rumor should be placed inside a board bag, hung from a tree and slowly roasted over a burning garbage can.For the surfer / fisherman out there, and isnâ€™t there a little bit of fisherman in all of us ?
