Today I woke up early due to fighting the effects of the flu over the last few days. I looked out my window at 6am expecting light winds as per the forcasts to see about 10+knots of wind blowing hard out of the southeast. With this in mind I ditched my plan to hit Canggu. Instead I made a quick check of the outer reefs to see what was going on there.
My inspection at 6:30am revealed that there was still some nice waves around and maybe even a slight increase in size over yesterday.
Kuta Reef was breaking in the waist high range with already a couple of surfers making the most of the morning high tide.
Middle reef was the biggest as usual with head high plus sets, and will only improve as the tide drops out then starts its run back in.
Airport left would have been my pick at the time with some waist to chest high waves breaking nicely with a small group of surfers already on it, being predominently a mid-high tide spot.
The tide found its top this morning at 7am reaching 2.0 mtrs and then the low will bottom out at 0.7 mtrs 3pm this afternoon.
Uluwatu I imagine would have to be producing some good head high plus waves this morning and with the tide running out your best bet for a barrel or two would be the racetrack.
These latest photos are once again from the beach breaks of Kuta and Legian. Waves were hitting at around the waist to head high range. There was no shortage of surfers up early to make the most of the high tide. I counted atleast 20 on each bank available and that was from just after 7am. There was also plenty of action on the beach with many people out doing thier morning runs and daily exercise routines.
The weather is a little overcast as I type this report up at 11am but patches of blue are shining through and making things pretty pleasant. Although its a little cooler, just remember not to stand in the sun too long or you will fry.
Surf wise I think we are going to see a little bit of a yo-yo effect in the swell over the next few days. But stay tuned cause whatever is happening, we are going to be bringing you the latest information and photos.
Till next time. Scott.
