****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hi crew and welcome back to the baliwaves.com for the latest news on surfing and weather conditions from the real surfers paradise called Bali.
This mornings 8.00am surf check on the Outer Reefs of Tuban was showing a nice boost in wave height. The tide was just coming up off the bottom of the low tide with head to double head high waves breaking between Kuta Reef and Airport left. But it was a new swell so it was still a little bit wonky and not lining up properly. There were surfers out on all of the 3 main sections.
But I wanted to show my crew a different location so we headed south for Balangan. As you can see in the photos I shot down there wave height here was also in the head to double head high range with clean off-shore wind. There was plenty of waves rolling through and every now and again there were a few that peeled off perfectly instead of sectioning out.
As most of the Bali veteran surfers know there has been a lot of changes take place at Balangan. Once a sleepy little location that was hard to find the way into, with only 2 or 3 rickety old warungs on the beach and a big and beautiful sandy beach. But with the demise of all the warungs / cafe’s at Dreamland, Balangan has now in my opinion become the new Dreamland. Still a beautiful location but now days you can expect at least 50 – 70 surfers in the water on any given day. And the scenery on the beach is certainly spectacular !
Surfing conditions today were once again perfect with the wind coming out of the ENE before the ESE – SE off-shore Tradewind kicked in, gusting between 10-14knot.
Tidal info, we had a 0.6mtr Low @ 6.00am and then another 2.5mtr High @ 12.30pm. Finishing off the day with a 0.2mtr Low just after sunset.
Weather wise it’s been a hot and sunny day with the odd cloud drifting by. Temperature wise the mercury would have peaked somewhere between 31 – 33 degree’s celsius.
