****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hi crew and thanks for stopping by the baliwaves.com for the very latest news on surfing and weather conditions from here on the friendliest little tropical surfing holiday island of Bali.
I have to say I’ve put in another big one today with an early morning motor cycle ride into the capital city of Denpasar, then swapping the bike for the rental car and straight down to Balangan. We had our first look at the waves around 11.00am to see wave height coming through fairly consistently in the chest to head high range. The tide was getting near the top at the time but as it started draining off the reef the waves got bigger with well over head freak sets. All in all there were some nice little waves down at Balangan today and when we left at 4.30pm there was only around 10 surfers left out in the line up for the sun set session.
Surfing conditions today were clean as a whistle at Balangan with nothing but clean off-shore wind coming out of the ESE – SSE @ 7-12knot.
Tidal info for today had a 0.3mtr Low @ 6.00am this morning then pouring in for a 2.4mtr High @ midday before finishing off the day with another 0.1mtr Low around sun set time.
Weather wise today, pure holiday stuff with plenty of blue sky and sunshine.
Sms surf report from the G-Land Surf Camp was calling head to well over head lines peeling down the point from Kongs all the way down to Speedies. Clean off-shore wind and only 5 surfers in the water at 8.45am.
