Have a good look around, make comments and ask questions. There is a lot of information on this site.
Did you know:
– Baliwaves has been going since 1999
– There are over 15,000 surf report images on baliwaves
– We have surf report archives going back to 2006, if only we had them still from 1999!
We’re looking forward to providing the lastest surf reports and surf news from Bali over the coming year and we look forward to reading your feedback.

HOW ABOUT SOME LONGBOARD STUFF MATE.
Agree with Trevor,a lot of the older guys have longboards now so would be nice to see some pics and details on the waves that suit .
nice update mate, site looking good
must be good to have finally updated the site with an easier to use admin. Longboards? Yes for sure, and a surf ski section too!
Nice work Slim. Looks very Proffessional. Maybe throw some more colour at it. I reckon the oversized tongue depressors, goat boats and shark biscuits should have a page elsewhere.

Nice work James & Troy !!! Baliwaves keeps me in tune with whats happening over there when I’m not there enjoying it all myself.In my opinion,Still the one and only hands on and reliable web site for surfers who enjoy the exotic Island of BALI !!! *****
long boards, goat boats… next someone will be asking for a SUP page OMG LOL
Graham Thomas says
Love what you do! PLEASE add some longboard info and pics. As we age we are all heading toward that path!
Thanks for all the feedback guys!
Longboarding hey. Seeing as there seems to be a bit of a theme here’ we’ve created a poll over on the right hand side to see if it just a vocal minority or if you guys really do want to see more longboarding stuff.
The Ando's says
Hi Slim and crew Thanks for keeping us updated on the best holiday and surf spots.Don’t care about longboards or goat boats or the other standups. What you guys are doing is the best. We are happy. See you soon in paradise.
Hey Slim, new site looks the goods.Don’t cater to longies SUP’s or sponge boarders. Keep up the great work for all of us over there in Paradise and will be catching up with you soon. All the best to you and your new family……..Craig
look pretty smik boys…leave the sup, bb, lb, goat boats to the others…
I am 53 and just gone to a shorter board. why a page for longboarders, just join the rest of the surf crew, or go shorter, hehe
Hey Slim, new site looks the goods. Do NOT cater to longies SUP’s or sponge boarders. They can all fuck off !! Keep up the great work for all of us over there in Bali….
Hello Slim, looks great mate. Sup, Longboards & lids why not. Whatever rocks their boat & keeps the stoke, Cheers.
Nice one site, Slim, but can’t find here a school project info.
I admire and respect for your work out there.
Anyways, luck with all your plans!
Cheers from Russia. Nat
Hey Solo – you can find the school project info under the news section – https://www.baliwaves.com/category/news/community/

Long and short, they are on my travel kit, when the waves are small or to fat I go for the long otherwise short is my thing. So why not!!!
Nice job guys!
Hi Wayan C, thanks for the birthday wishes for Wayan Ray and to tell ya the truth the way the Poll is going the longboarders are pulling there weight. I’ve got nothing against real long boarders, as long as they can walk the nose and do a drop knee cutback..hehehe
no problem with with the long board section bra but ya should be looking at making the bodyboarding section bigger and better a bit more footage smacked on ya site but all in all good bra
Got used to the older one slim… why change?
At the least the waves still stay the same!
Oh yeah; screw the other categories!

jacko macko says
Hey Slim, thanks mate for providing an awesome service. I’m always happy with your site no matter what format it’s in as long as its got the waves and your tuned observations.
To all those crew trying to pump their ego by bagging out a type of surf craft – pipe down.
It’s all about the waves for me, and the Baliwaves team have been feeding me sick waves and handy info for almost 10 years
Putu Matahari says
No matter where I am – landlocked, other surf destinations or on trips – I always keep an eye on Baliwaves. Having lived and surfed in Bali sometime, it is a flashback in time each and every visit and make me come back to the island again, and again. Great reports, keep it up – Matur sukseme!
Dan Butler says
What is going on???…. can u plz update the report from the 11th!!!… i need my fix!!!… PLZ, PLZ, PLZ!!!!…
Dont think Slim would have internet access. In his previous reports he mentioned he was heading off Bali surfing for a few days.
garry, bali regular says
hey j/rotton being an ex gong boy i know there is no corrimal pool its actually towradgi ps what date are you going to be in bali im there from 11april to 8may maybe catch up for a bintang and waves
One suggestion for the site… when you click on the “next” photo, suggest the page be coded such that only the photo changes, rather than refreshing the entire page each time. Great update though
Hi crew and please do feel free to post a comment. But I refrain from swearing in my surf reports etc etc, so I’m going to have to delete any comments that have any nasty words in them ok.
rui ramos says
Hey slim the new website is looking great congrdulations on upgradin the hard a great work you have acomplished te last 11 years give yourself a pad in the back.
About comments less appropriate don’t worry some people don’t understand the hard work you go through.
keep up the good work.
Rui Ramos from portugal remember???
just read on another website that the Police have outlawed motorbikes/scooters with board racks, and also riding without shirts!!! have you heard anything bout this?
G’Day Jarrod, bro they can’t outlaw bikes with board racks, it’s Bali tradition… riding without a shirt is asking for solid sunburn at the least. I’ve heard of “the wind blowing through my hair…..)
Guys – great job – sites really neat – easy to navigate. Longboarders – it takes all sorts – whatever floats your boat. Am over in April – yours is my site of choice for wave details.
Looking good Slim! As always the place to look for Bali surf info and great pics. How’s the little surfer mate. Gotta be about a year now.
Sure, might as well float a few longboard log pics and reports in there, too. Cheers mate. Miss chatting and throwing down a few (ha ha several) Bir Bintangs with ya.
