****MIDDAY SURF UP-DATE**** Hello crew and welcome back to the one and only original baliwaves.com for more surf and weather info from your favourite surfing holiday destination of Bali.
This mornings 7.00AM surf recon of the Outer Reefs was still showing wave height to be in the 2-3ft+ range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left.
Surfing conditions were clean and smooth but with the wind blowing light on-shore outta the West @ 1-3knot. Around 8.00AM it switched back to the East but has since then been fluxuating from SW to SE.
Tide wise today the first was a 0.1mtr Low @ 7.00Am and then we had a 2.0mtr High @ 1.00PM.
The tide was too low for Kuta Reef and Airport Left when I was down at the beach but there woulda been a few waist to head high waves breaking for the boys and girls as the tide started to run back in.
Middle Reef had quite a few surfers in the water by 7.00AM and there was some nice looking waves breaking in the chest to head high plus region.
Impossibleâ€™s had plenty of waves in the 2-3ft+ range bending down the reef when I passed by at 9.00AM on my way down to Uluwatu and there only looked to be around a dozen or so surfers scattered through em.
Uluwatu as yaâ€™s can see in these latest photos I shot this morning was still producing some solid 4ft set waves on the Main Peak and up at Templeâ€™s. But as the tide started to get towards the top wave height seemed to be backing down a touch. There was around 60 surfers in the water between Templeâ€™s and the Main Peak. And if itâ€™s tube rideâ€™s your looking for then Iâ€™d be heading down that way for the afternoon run out tide on the Racetrack.
Trivia dept; Ok you may or may not know but we currently have the Asian Beach Games happening here in Bali. And if youâ€™re here at the moment you should make your way down to Kuta Beach for a look at the many different events taking place. Tivia Q; how many of the Indonesian surfers failed the urine testâ€¦ ?
Weather wise , well what can I say other than Bali has once again produced the goods. Blue sky and sunshine with an expected top temperature of around 32 degreeâ€™s Celsius. Water temperature absolutely a perfect 24 degreeâ€™s Celsius.
Ok tomorrow we have a local Trolling / Sport Fishing competition scheduled to kick off at 6.30AM so I wonâ€™t be posting a report Iâ€™m sorry to say. But I will have a full report on the event along with photos of the day and Iâ€™ll load that onto the fishing page as soon as I recover from the presentation party.
