****EVENING SURF UP-DATE**** Howdy folks and better late than never, and I suppose it really depends on where abouts you are in the World wether itâ€™s morning or evening anyway. But all the same thanks for dropping by the baliwaves.com to check on whats happening surf and weather wise here on the holiday island of Bali.
Well to tell yaâ€™s the truth thereâ€™s not a lot happening for the serious surfer out on the reefs today. Wave height here on the Outer Reefs of Tuban is only just showing in the 1-2 foot between Kuta Reef and Airport Left, and the two footers are the freak sets.
Surfing conditions are perfect with clean off-shore wind coming outta the ESE @ 4-8knot.
Tide wise the first of our tides todays was a 0.4mtr Low @ 9.00AM and then we had a High of 1.6mtrs @ 3.00PM
Looking for wave today , well the boys from Home Base all hit the road for Uluwatu and reckoned for the size it wasnâ€™t too bad down there on the Main Peak as the tide was on the run back in. Wave height was coming through in the waist to head high class with close on 100 surfers spread out between the Temple and Racetrack sections.
Weather wise , more blue sky and sunshine was the order for beach lovers today, with the temperature a very warm 34 degreeâ€™s Celsius.
Ok so thereâ€™s not a lot happening surf wise here in Bali at the moment and not much chance of it picking up anytime in the next few days either. But just to keep yaâ€™s in the loop Iâ€™ll make the bike ride down to Uluwatu tomorrow and shoot some new photos for yaâ€™s.
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.
