**** AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE **** Hi crew and welcome back to the one and only baliwaves.com daily 7/7 surf and weather report website , your eye on whats happening surfwise here in Bali.
Well as yaâ€™s can see the boys staying here with us at Home Base Bali in Tuban scored more perfect waves in the 2-4ft range . Well thatâ€™s not bad considering at day break around this part of the island the Outer Reefs (Kuta Reef across to Airport Left) were only breaking in the 1-2ft range . But it did involve another 2 hour car trip to get to it.
First up wind direction was coming lightly outta the North @ 1-3knot and perfectly off-shore up along Baliâ€™s North Western Coastline . Tidewise we had a 2.1mtr High around 10.00am then followed by a 0.5mtr Low @ 4.00pm . Sometime around 10.00am the wind did a switcheroo and started to blow ESE-SSE and off-shore from Legian to Uluwatu . Speaking of Uluwatu one of the local boys from Ulu called me up and reckoned the Main Peak was producing some nice waves in the 3-4ft range through the High tide.
I took another surf check of the Outer Reefs around 1.00pm and there was definitely an increase in size from the morning. The wind was still clean off-shore outta the ESE-SSE @ 3-6knot combined with 2-3 footers breaking on Middle Reef and Airport left . So tomorrows showing the signs for more fun sized surf around Bali for the lucky buggers here on vacation.
For the surfer / fisherman out there, and isnâ€™t there a little bit of fisherman in all of us ? Well you guys can take a look at the freshly up dated fishing report and photos from the last couple of days sport fishing here in Bali.
Weather wise right up until now itâ€™s been a perfect holiday type day. Loads of sunshine and blue sky with a midday max temperature of around 31 degreeâ€™s Celsius and water temp of 22-23 degreeâ€™s Celsius. But right now at 4.30pm weâ€™ve just had some big old black clouds over and start dropping rain on us.
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 .
