****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE**** Gâ€™Day folks and welcome back to the baliwaves.com for another look at todays surf and weather conditions around Bali.
My first surf check of the Outer Reefs here in Tuban at 7.30Am was showing of another decrease in wave size between Kuta Reef and Airport left. Wave height has dropped down into the 1-2ft+ range and the wind is blowing light on-shore outta the S-SW @ 4-7knot.
Not much happening between Kuta Reef and Airports but there were a few small waves breaking on Middle Reef before the tide started to fill in. Best bet for a wave today would have been over at Keramas from the early AM through till midday.
It also looks like we are not going to be getting much relief this week in the way of a new swell until next weekend. We should see the start of a new one on Saturday that will run through until the following Monday.
Tide wise today the first of our tides was a 2.2mtr High @ 11.00am and then weâ€™ll have a airly shallow 0.3mtr Low around 5.00pm
Weather wise today itâ€™s been pretty much just blue sky and sunshine with a top temperature of around 33 degreeâ€™s outta the shade

Bali Fishing Newâ€™s ; 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 Rp7,450 â€“ Rp7,500 depending on location. While the US$ is still pretty stable at Rp9,050.
And just a reminder that we still have some original baliwaves.com T-Shirts (AU$15.00) and FREE stickers available for yaâ€™s here in Bali so drop me a line.
