****MIDDAY SURF UP-DATE**** Hello friends and thanks for stopping by the baliwaves.com daily surf and weather report for your Sunday Session.
Well I got of to a slow start this morning as yet yesterday another Newcastle Boy stepped up to the aisle and married a local Indonesian lass. Well done Kyle and Iis, I hope you guys have nothing but smooth sailing from here on in. Ok surfwise today there has been a drop in wave height between Kuta reef and Airport Left. Actual wave size was pushing the 2-4ft range between Kuta Reef and Airport left. The first of our tides today was a 0.8mtr Low at 11.00am and then well see a small 1.4mtr High around 5.00pm. More light and variable winds this morning but the ESE â€“ SE Tradewind eventually kicked in turning conditions clean off-shore from legian to Uluwatu.
As yaâ€™s can see Scotto made the run down to see what was happening down at Uluwatu this morning. Apparantly there was only a very small turn up of surfers, but some pretty high profile names amounst those that did. Starting tomorrow Uluwatu will be closed to the surfing public with the organizers organizing the start of the Search event for the 30th of this month. And it looks like the crew wonâ€™t have to long to wait with a solid looking swell expected to start pushing the tempo on the same day.
I did my best to try and get a â€œpassâ€ into the event. I actually thought I mighta had a chance with all the contest press release stuff we have been posting for all the labels this year. But nope, baliwaves.com doesnâ€™t get in the gate. Iâ€™ll have to re evaluate the press release stuff and maybe just keep baliwaves for you holidaying free surfers. Maybe we will run a Poll on that issue and let you guys and girls decide for us.
Weather wise today around Bali weâ€™ve had a pretty good run with mainly blue sky and sunshine for the beach lovers and pool side sun bakers.
Oh and I also loaded yaâ€™s up another New Video Clip (a day at Balangan) and you should be able to find that in the Revver Video section of baliwaves.com.
Ok and hereâ€™s just a quick heads up on an up coming special even happening here in Bali on the 27th of July. Tom Curren will be playing live at the Hard Rock Café in Kuta along with a screening of Walking on Water surf movie. ALL FOR FREE !!!! So if your in town or going to be in town make sure ya get yourself down there ok.
And just a reminder that we still have some baliwaves.com T-Shirts and stickers available for yaâ€™s here in Bali so drop me a line.
Mentawai islands ; The good guys from the Kandui Surf Resort have sent us through another new batch of photos showing off more perfection in their part of Ind o. And youâ€™ll be able to suss them out in the Surf Report section. Hereâ€™s another baliwaves bonus for yaâ€™s dept; Anyday now weâ€™ll also be providing yaâ€™s with surf reports and photos from the Macaronis Surf Resort up in the Mentawaiâ€™s. I was talking to a couple of friends yesterday who have been out on charter in the Ments and they reckon if they ever make it back up there again they wonâ€™t be going on a boat after stopping off in the Surf Resorts. Thatâ€™s where theyâ€™ll be heading. The Surf Resorts up there just make it all too easy for their guests with speed boats to zap you around all day and then back to the Resort for R & R in the evenings.
We also have a NEW Home Base guest house close by to Airport Left and the other breaks of the Outer Reefs, 5 min walk. This place is more private and spacious with big air conditioned rooms, hot and cold water, tv and plenty of off street parking all enclosed in Balinese style. The rooms are AU$16.00 for a room with big double bed and AU$30.00 for a twin share room.
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 fishing report and photos from the last couple of trips out sport fishing here in Bali
Check out the wotashot.com banner over in our banner advertising section. These guys offer a unique photo service enabling photographers to sell their photos on-line without any charge to the photographer.
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.
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 itâ€™s somewhere 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.
Best Regards from the No.1 surfing holiday destination thatâ€™s got it all, BALI , see yaâ€™s here in 2008
