****MORNING SURF UP-DATE****
Howdy folks and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves.com for the low down on todays surfing and weather conditions here on the happy little holiday island of Bali.
Ok this mornings surf check on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban was showing similar sized waves as yesterday but with the occassional bigger set wave coming through. So we can say wave height height between Kuta Reef and Airport Left is breaking in the 2-3ft range with the odd 4 foot freak set. Down along the Bukit I’m sure you’d also be able to find some sweet little waves at Balangan in the 2-3ft+ range. And Uluwatu would be breaking in the 3-4ft+ sector for sure.
Surfing conditions this morning were a little bit ordinary when I was first on the beach with the wind blowing light on-shore out of the WNW. But at around 9.30am the ESE-SE of-shore Tradewind kicked in and we are back to clean and smooth conditions between Kuta and Uluwatu.
Tidal info for today is calling for a 1.0mtr Low @ 11.00am and then a no range 1.6mtr High around the 5.00pm mark.
Our daily sms surf report from the guys at the G-land Surf Camp was saying that wave height has also crept up a notch at G-land in East Java. With the swell coming more out of the SW and breaking in the 4-5ft class (up to double head high) from Kongs through MoneyTree’s all the way down to the Launching Pad.
Weather wise here in the Tuban / Kuta part of Bali we have a blue sky and heading for a holiday temperature of around 31 degree’s Celsius. While the water temp is a very pleasant 23-24 degree’s Celsius.
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta you’ll find that; –1AU$=Rp8,185 — 1US$=Rp10,175 —
