****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hello surfers and welcome back to the baliwaves and the start of another surfing week here on the real surfers paradise holiday island of Bali.
Well this mornings 7.45am surf check on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban was only showing wave height to be breaking in the waist to chest high plus range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. We were hoping that the new swell would be already showing but at the time, not yet. So seeing as the tide was already getting close to the top we decided on an easy paddle down on the beach breaks at Padma St in Legian. Pretty ordinary with most of the bigger set waves closing out but the occassional wave peeling off.
But we could see that the new swell was starting to show and now at 1.30pm wave height on the Outer Reefs is rocking through in the head to almost double head high class between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. I’ve been invited down to the opening ceremony of the Rip Curl Padang Padang Cup this afternoon so that’s where I’ll be heading to shortly. So I’ll try and shoot you some photos from the ceremony and some waves at Padang Padang if there’s anything happening.
Surfing conditions were fairly clean with the wind coming out of the ESE – SE with gusts of up to 15knot+
Weather wise today it’s been raining on and off all morning but hopefully it’s finished for now.
Today’s sms surf report from the G-Land Surf Camp was saying that wave height has already increased over there with head to almost double head high waves hitting Kongs and the top end of Money Tree’s. Once again, no surfers in the water at 8.15am.
The number of surfers visiting G-Land are way way below average this season so it could be the perfect time to slip over there.
