****MORNING SURF UP-DATE****
Howdy folks and welcome back to the baliwaves.com for your daily fix of surf and weather info, not to mention the photos and video. From your first choice surfing holiday destination, the island of Bali. And thanks to our friends at Hendra Surf photography down at Uluwatu for today’s gallery.
This mornings surf check on the Outer reefs here in Tuban was showing a slight bump in wave height between Kuta Reef and Airport left. The tide was just about on the bottom of the low at the time so Middle Reef had the best waves. A pretty consistant head to head high plus with around 20+ surfers already on it. Kuta Reef and Airport Left should both have a few small waves in the waist to chest high region as the tide starts to run back in.
Surfing conditions this morning are clean but testing with the ESE – SE off-shore Tradewind already gusting up to 15knot, putting a little chop on the face of waves on the more open locations.
Tidal info for today had a 0.7mtr Low @ 9.30am and then running back in for a 1.7mtr High around the 3.00pm mark.
Looking for a wave this morning with the incoming tide Airport left and Kuta Reef should be ok for some small but fun waves. Balangan would be worth look and Uluwatu for the best size and power.
Weather wise, well here we are in early August the absolute middle of Indonesia’s dry season and it was still pissing down rain last night from 10.00pm through til almost 11.00pm. This morning’s sky was a mixture of blue and cloud. More than likely if anything it will clear up through midday and early afternoon before clouding back over later this afternoon ?
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta you can find that — 1AU$=Rp8,100 — 1US$=Rp8,895 — Give or take a few Rupiah depending on vendor.
I also through a new video clip together of a few locations down on the southern end of the Bali. I’f it goes ok I’ll do a few more, I’ve got at least another 2000Gb of video footage in storage….
Swell Prediction; Everything is still looking sound for a new swell to start appearing on Bali’s reefs in the next 24hr’s. Tomorrow morning there should already be more swell that will slowly build through Thursday with some fairly solid waves. Friday is still looking good but slowly backing off through until late Sunday before a fresh new medium sized swell backs up on next Monday.
