****MORNING SURF UP-DATE**** Good morning crew and thanks for stopping by your baliwaves.com for the Sunday Edition on whats happening surf and weather wise on the No.1 surfing holiday island of Bali.
This morning I was down taking in a surf recon of the Outer`Reefs here in Tuban at 7.30AM and am happy to say that there has been a slight increase in wave height between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. Surfing conditions are perfectly clean with the aid of a light ESE off-shore wind blowing in the 3-6knot class. Wave height in the 2-4ft range.
Tide wise the first of our tides today was a 1.9mtr High @ 9.00AM and then weâ€™ll have a 0.5mtr Low around the 3.00PM mark
Kuta Reef had some fun looking little waves coming through in the waist to head high range and there looked to already be at least 20 surfers in the water at the time.
Middle Reef also had plenty of wave breaking in the shoulder to head high plus sector. Middleâ€™s will only keep improving as the tide continues to run out through the afternoon.
Airport Left was breaking in the waist to head high range as well but there seemed to be a bit longer of a wait for the bigger waves to come through.
Uluwatu would be the best bet for a wave this morning and you could at least expect wave height to be in the chest to well over head high range down on the Main Peak section this morning.
Beach breaks up along the Half Way to Padma st stretch of sand would have plenty of smaller waves on offer and if your not quite up to surfing over the coral reefs thatâ€™s the best option for you.
Weather wise we have another great day coming on for the lucky people here on holiday today. Temperature wise we can expect more hot and humid conditons with a top of around 33 degreeâ€™s Celsius. While the water temp is absolutely perfect for swimming and surfing at 24 degreeâ€™s Celsius.
