****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hello surfers and thanks for stopping by the baliwaves.com for another Sunday Session here on the with out a doubt best surfing holiday location called Bali.
As ya’s can see in todays photos I snapped we took another run back up to Canggu for Day 3 of the Oakley (Indo) Pro 6 star event. Arriving in the still empty car park @ 6.30am to fine a very nice and clean 2-3ft+ wave consistantly coming through on the Sandbar and Rivermouth sections. And with the tide on the rise the waves only kept getting better. With the contest being surfed on the right hand rivermouth break it was a definite advantage for the natural footers with Lee Wilson, Marlon Gerber, Made Awan & Pepen Hendrix to name most, getting through to the quarter finals still yet to be decided. It was around 11.30am when the officials decided on waiting for better conditions as the the wind started to increase out of the SW.
Down on the Sandbar where the surfers were expressing themselves with some free surfing, before and after heats there was no shortage of action either. You can also follow this event by clicking on the Oakley banner over to the right of the page. I also managed to shoot around 10mins of DV so as soon as I get a chance I’ll get that edited and on line for ya’s.
Just to round it off, weather wise it was mainly blue sky and sunshine up at Canggu this morning. Now @ 3.00pm there is some cloud cover moving over. The wind eraly this morning came out of the North for an hour or so before swinging to the WSW and increasing in strength to around 7-9knot. Now it appears to have swung back to the ESE and back to off-shore here along Bali’s Premier Coast the West Side.
Have a good one and I’ll be back again some time tomorrow.
Swell prediction for the next 7 days is looking like we should see a nice little boost in size starting to show tomorrow (Saturday) that will hold through Sunday before losing it’s lustre through Monday. Tursday and Wednesday are looking pretty small, not much change through Thursday. Friday is looking better with another little bump in swell for next weekend.
Plus I’d like to give a big welcome to OAKLEY INDONESIA who have signed up as major sponsors with the baliwaves.com So I hope you guys can support Oakley Indo by using some of their cool products they have available here in Bali.
