****EVENING SURF UP-DATE**** Howdy crew and thanks for dropping by the baliwaves.com for the run down on todays surf and weather conditions on your favourite surfing holiday island of Bali.
Well we are still stuck with small waves around the island again today. Here on the Outer Reefs of Tuban wave height was only in the waist to chest high range on the bigger set waves. So it was a good day to take a rest and get some of my domestic chores out of the way.
Tomorrow weâ€™ll be heading down to the southern end of the island and hopefully thereâ€™ll be something for us. So check in tomorrow after lunch fo some new photos and surf info. In the mean time the good guys at the G-Land Surf Camp have provided us with some new photos from G-Land, taken over the last few days. And it looks like thereâ€™s been a lot more surfing going down over there than what we have had, check em out on the G-land Surf Report Page of baliwaves.com.
Weather wise today itâ€™s been hot and sunny with the top temperature easily busting into the low 30â€™s on the Celsius scale.
Swell Forecast (24th â€“ 30th) Well Iâ€™m sorry to say that itâ€™s not looking to good over the next week folks. More of these small waves in the waist to head high range over the next 4-5days. At this stage it looks like sometime around next Saturday weâ€™ll see some decent swell on our reefs. Anyway Iâ€™ll be keeping an eye on the waves for yaâ€™s and will update if there are any changes.
Bali Fishing Newâ€™s ; Yesterday I finally got around to loading up some of the photos Iâ€™ve taken of some of the fish weâ€™ve caught over the last 4 weeks. Plus a bit of a run down on what weâ€™ve been up to. You can find that on our Fishing Report Page in the Reports Menue.
Exchange Rates ; Well the way the Australian dollar has been crashing the last couple of weeks itâ€™s been hard to say what itâ€™s doing today but it would be still ranging between Rp7,800 â€“ Rp7,900 depending on location. While the US$ is still pretty stable at Rp9,100.
G-land, drop us an email if you want to cash in on the 10% discount offer at the G-Land surf camp.
The boys from Kandui Surfing resort in the Mentawaiâ€™s have also sent us some sick sick photos of there recent swell and youâ€™ll find those on there surf report page. Plus the crew from Macaroniâ€™s Surf resort have also sent us new photos and surf reports from their part of the Ments.
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.

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.
