****MORNING SURF UP-DATE**** Hello surfers and thanks for tuning into the baliwaves.com Sunday Session for the run down on whats happening surf and weather wise here on the happy little holiday island of Bali.
Yep, like I mentioned yesterday I was a day late on this weekends swell predictions. This mornings 7.00am surf recon of the Outer Reefs is showing a nice increase in swell, with 2-4ft+ waves breaking between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. The first of our tides today will be a 0.7mtr Low around 10.00am and then a 1.5mtr High around 4.00pm this afternoon. Once again the ESE-SE Tradewind has started early this morning blowing clean off-shore between Legian and Uluwatu up to 9knot. But will more than likely increase into the 12-15knot range as the day burns on.
Kuta Reef was producing some perfect waves in the chest to head high plus range this morning while there was still sufficient water over the reef. Iâ€™ll be taking a closer look at KR around lunch time as the tide starts to run back in.
Middle Reef was smoking through some solid over head set waves in the 3-4ft+ range and will only keep improving as the tide bottoms out at 10.00am
Airport Left had some nice little waves in the head high range on the sets and just like KR will be on again as the tide runs back in around lunch time onwards.
Weather wise today itâ€™s another perfect holiday type day for the lucky beach lovers holidaying in Bali. Blue sky and sunshine is whats outside, heading for a maximum telperature of around 32 degreeâ€™s Celsius.
