****MORNING SURF UP-DATE**** Good morning surfers and thanks for stopping by the baliwaves.com for the start of another week full of surf and weather info from your favourite holiday island of Bali.
And we certainly do have a good looking day coming on for the crew already over here. Well we finally started to see a definite improvement in wave height yesterday with wave height height in the head to head high plus range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. This morning when I went down for the 7.00am surf recon of the Outer reefs wave height is still hanging in there at 2-4ft. So I think as the tide starts its run back in for the scheduled 2.4mtr High @ 1.00pm we could see more improvement in size. Wind direction was blowing clean off-shore outta the ESE-SE @ 5-8knot and will also probably increase in strength by midday.
Kuta Reef ; the tide was still too low for Kuta Reef to be breaking properly but even so there were still half a dozen surfers out there. Wave height was coming through in the shoulder to head high plus class and around mid to late morning it will be pretty good out there.
Middle Reef was pulling in a little bit more size breaking consistently in the 3-4ft range. And being better suited to the lower end of the tide was producing some nice waves for the crew already in the water.
Airport Left , I didnâ€™t see any surfers out at Airportâ€™s but as the tide runs back in there will be some fun sized waves in the waist to head high plus class.
Impossibleâ€™s , Scott phoned through on his way down to Uluwatu this morning that there were some nice lines bending down the reef at Impossiblâ€™s in the 2-3ft+ range and that there were surfers scattered along the reef catching em.
Uluwatu , Apparantly with the low tide happening Scott was taking photos of the Racetrack section where wave height was a very tubing 3-4ft. Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing what Scotto produces for us when he gets back to Home Base around midday. Iâ€™d also have to imagine that the Main Peak and Temple sections will be smoking towards midday as the tide fills in..
Weather wise out there this morning thereâ€™s nothing but blue sky and sunshine. So we will be expecting a maximum temperature of around 32-33 degreeâ€™s Celsius. The water surface temperature has dropped with the strong off-shore winds that have been blowing. Currently around 20-21 degreeâ€™s Celsius.
Swell Forecast , well just off the top of my head I think wave height should keep increasing through out today and into tomorrow (Tuesday) and then we will still have some smaller waves yo-yoing up and down in size for a couple more days. But Iâ€™ll have an indepth look at whats happening later this afternoon and fill yaâ€™s in on tomorrows surf report.
Iâ€™d just like to let everyone know about the â€œCoca-Cola for Bali coastal clean up dayâ€ being held at Legian beach 13th July 08 at 8.00am. For more information on this gath ering go to this link for the full run down. https://www.baliwaves.com/Content.aspx?Page=Stories&Section=Read&ID=43
Drop me a line if your interested in organizing your friends to get on board a 10mtr high powered ocean speed boat if you want to surf locations like Desert Pt, Scar Reef, Supersuck, Yo-Yoâ€™s without having to wait days to get the their the old way. Iâ€™m thinking this type of trip is gunna be the New Way to hit Lombok and Sumbawa instead of the old 7 day slow boat system. Especially when itâ€™s priced around the same range but doubling the amount of surf time ! These charters are only for private groups at this stage so organize your surfing buddies and get on board.
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.

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.

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.
