**** AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** Howdy friends and thanks for tuning in for the run down on whats been happening around Bali surf and weather wise today . Well I never got to go along on todays little surfing road trip , but the boys from here at Home Base Bali certainly made the most of it.
Our day started off at 4.30am , for me it was getting my fishing gear together and making sure the boys were up and getting ready to load up the rental with their surfboards and other surfing paraphanalia.
Me and my guest for the day pushed the boat off and set off after some sport fishing . But anyway Iâ€™ll load up my story and photos into the fishing page as soon as I get a chance later tonight. 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 .
On the other hand as yaâ€™s can see in these latest photos to come outta Bali . The boys scored some nice little waves in the waist to head high range . But it didnâ€™t come easy, first they had to drive for 2 hrs to get there. And from all other reports Iâ€™ve had from around the island the boys got the best waves on offer.
Weather wise itâ€™s been a beauty, 8-10 on the baliwaves.com weather scale. For starters there was no wind at at all before the ESE off-shore kicked in at 1-4knot. Followed by a short burst of WSW before glassing back off to hadly any wind at all, and all under a blue sky.
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.
