****MORNING SURF UP-DATE**** Hello surfers and thanks for tuning into your baliwaves.com for the run down on whats happening surf and weather wise here on the holiday island of Bali.
Well not much happening surf wise, my first surf check on the Outer Reefs of Tuban was showing wave height to be down in the knee to chest high range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left.
Surfing conditions are perfect with a light ESE off-shore wind fanning the ocean at 3-6knot.
Tide wise the first of todays tides was a 0.3mtr Low @ 8.00AM and then weâ€™ll have a 1.7mtr High @ 2.00PM.
Not much at all for the experienced surfer on the Outer Reefs with Middle Reef being the only option to get wet. Wave height on Middleâ€™s was breaking in the waist to chest high region. While Kuta Reef and Airport Left was only lapping onto the reef.
Looking for a wave today your best bet would be to have a hunt up along the beach breaks of Kuta Half Way through to Padma St. Or if your keen to mix it up head down south to Uluwatu as the tide starts to push back in.
Weather wise itâ€™s another faultless day (except for the surf) coming on with a clear blue sky and unlimited sunshine. Heading for an expected top temperature of around 33 degreeâ€™s Celsius.
Photo Up-Date , The lads from the Macaroni Surf Resort have sent us in some new photos and news from there part of Indonesia. New surf reports from the Kandui Sur Resort and Iâ€™ll be checking in with the G-Land Surf Camp crew later this afternoon to see if they have anything for us.
