Gâ€™Day friends of Bali and welcome back to your baliwaves.com daily (7/7) surf and weather report. Well I took my time heading down to the beach this morning for the surf recon of the Outer Reefs.
Wave height between Kuta Reef and Airport Left was only just showing in the 1-2ft range and that was only when the set waves came through. Nothing was breaking in between the sets. The first of our tides today was a 2.3mtr High @ 10.00am and then we get a reef exposing 0.2mtr Low around the 5.00pm mark. Today we also have a Full Moon rising so weâ€™ll see some big tide differences over the next few days. The wind has been coming outta the ESE-SE @ 6-10knot+ since early this morning and will probably increase in strength throughout the afternoon.
Looking for a wave today there was a few smallies breaking on Airport Left in the knee to chest high range but they were few and far between. There was also a pretty solid crew out there waiting for them.
The beach breaks along the Kuta to Legian stretch would have a few smallies as well and probably worth a look along the top of the tide.
Uluwatu would be scoring the most size today along Baliâ€™s West Coast and probably the only location where you might be lucky enough to find a tube ride.
Weather wise we have a good looking day outside with loads of blue sky and that sweet sunshine for all the beach lovers here on holidays.
Swell Forecast ; (16th â€“ 22nd) Our short range expectations are not looking too bad and tomorrow the 17th (Independence Day) we should see a bit more swell on the reef and beach breaks. But this will only last through till Monday before it tapers back off and down into the 1-3ft range for the remainder of the week.
