****MORNING SURF UP-DATE**** Good morning and a big thanks to all you surfers tuning into the original baliwaves.com today for your daily dose of surf and weather info live from your No.1 surfing holiday destination of Bali.
This mornings 6.30AM surf recon of the Outer Reefs wasnâ€™t looking to crash hot for the dawn patrollers. Wave height between Kuta Reef and Airport Left was only just showing in the 1-1ft+ range.
Surfing conditions are clean and tidy with the wind coming outta the ESE @ 4-7knot and blowing straight off-shore between Kuta and Uluwatu.
Tidewise the first of those will be a 0.7mtr Low at 10.30AM and then sheâ€™ll be running in for a 1.5mtr High around the 5.00PM mark
Looking for a wave today your gunna have to do a few miles and a bit of searching Iâ€™d have to say. Around these parts there is a small wave breaking on Airport Left and at Middle Reef but only in the knee to waist high plus class. With the tide on the run out you might get lucky and find a few smallies up at Keramas over on the East Coast. And maybe when the tide starts to run back in Uluwatu will have something breaking on the Main Peak.
So thatâ€™s how it is today, not the best of days for surfing but the water temperature is perfect for some splashing around or maybe snorkeling. But if youâ€™re here with your wife or girlfriend itâ€™s a perfect day for doing some of the other stuff that Bali has on offer.
Weather wise we are going to be in for another very hot day, so all the fair skinned people had better to remember to sun block up.
Swell Forecast 23rd â€“ 29th , Hmmm, well nothing to look forward to through today and tomorrow at least. The charts are calling in a new swell to start showing on the reefs sometime late on Saturday though. So come Sunday we should have waves at just about all locations around Bali pushing into the double head high class at the more open beaches. This should continue into Monday before backing off again Tuesday. Then hopefully weâ€™ll see another small system move through and perk up the surfing spirits on Wednesday / Thursday next week.
