****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hello surfers and welcome back to the one and only original Bali surf report website for the most complete news on surfing and weather conditions here on everyone’s favorite surfing holiday destination of Bali.
This mornings surf check on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban wasn’t looking real good at all. With wave height down to a very lazy looking knee to knee high plus between Kuta Reef and Airport left. As you can see in today’s photo gallery we had Ketut out covering Kuta Beach to Canggu and Slim did the Kuta Reef to Uluwatu end of the island. Canggu had waves coming through in the waist to chest high region with the very occasional head high freak set. Surfer’s out on all sections from the reef out the front of the warungs, sand bar and right hand river mouth. Nothing really happening down along Padma st with only knee to waist high dribblers at best.
Down at Uluwatu this morning wave height was hitting the Main Peak and Temple sections in the chest to head high plus range on the early morning high tide. As the tide started to empty off the reef the Racetrack was generating the odd sly barrel for those who dared. By the time we packed up our gear there would have been close to 80 surfers spread out from Temple’s all the way down to the Racetrack.
Surfing conditions have been normal for this time of the year. Light wind through the early AM before the ESE – SE off-shore Tradewind kicked in with gusts of up to 15knot by midday.
Tidal info said we had a 1.9mtr High @ 7.00am and then running out for a 0.7mtr Low around 1.30pm
Weather wise down at Uluwatu we did have some light rain early in the peace before the sun busted through for a super hot one under the protection of the cliff face. I have to say the temperature would have peaked around the 34 degree Celsius.
Ok we hope you like the variety in todays photos and we’ll try to keep it like this when ever we can. Tune in tomorrow for our Sunday Session for the latest news on surfing and weather stuff from Bali.
