****MORNING SURF UP-DATE****
Good morning folks and thanks for checking the baliwaves for todays news on surfing and weather conditions here on the happy little holiday island of Bali.
And what a beautiful morning it’s been here so far, weather wise at least. This mornings 7.00am check on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban was showing 1-2 footers or knee to waist high breaking between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. There were surfers on all 3 major breaks still catching the odd wave or two. Looking for a wave you could check out anywhere down on the southern end of the island for a little more size and power. Hopefully tomorrow we’ll see a little bit more swell about.
Surfing conditions were clean and glassy with no wind present at the time.
Tidal info for today has a 1.5mtr High @ 6.00am, then a 1.2mtr Low @ 12.00pm and finishing off with a 1.7mtr High around sunset time.
Weather wise it’s been a fresh and clear morning. Plenty of blue sky around this part of the island and heading for a top temp of around 33-34 degree’s Celsius.
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta you’ll find that –1AU$=Rp8,295 — 1US$=Rp 8,950 — of course rates will vary from vendor to vendor.
Kuta traffic up-date; Try to avoid the Kuta Square to Kuta Beach area from mid afternoon through to around 9.00pm if you travelling by car or taxi. Or expect some intense traffic. Even by motor bike using all lanes and the footpaths it’s still tuff.
