****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hello everyone and welcome to the weekend on baliwaves.com for the latest news on surfing and weather conditions here on everybody’s first choice surfing holiday island destination of Bali.
So this mornings 7.30am surf check on the Outer reefs here in Tuban was certainly showing a drop in wave height. But yes, there was still a few waves out there for the early birds. Middle Reef was picking up set waves in the chest to head high plus range. Kuta Reef and Airport Left weren’t as lucky only picking up waves in the waist to chest high region. Wave height was predicted to continue decreasing through out the day, then hopefully by tomorrow afternoon we’ll be seeing the start of a new swell.
The wind has been blowing hard out of the ESE – SE virtually all day and currently gusting up to 16knot+ at times. Stong wind yes, but it’s still off-shore wind.
Tidal info for today had a 2.0mtr High @ 8.00am and then we have a 0.6mtr Low happening around the 2.30pm mark.
Weather wise we’ve got plenty of blue sky here in the Tuban / Kuta area with the temperature between 30 – 32 degree Celsius.
Next week is looking good for waves with a couple of new swells in transit to Bali. So stay tuned. For now thanks to our friends at Hendra Surf Photography down at Uluwatu I’ve loaded up a photo gallery that was shot down at Ulu yesterday, featuring some solid waves on the Outside Corner. You can find them in our Readers Report
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta you’ll find that — 1AU$=Rp8,100 — 1US$=Rp8,895 — Rates will vary from vendor to vendor
This mornings sms surf report from the crew at the G-Land Surf Camp was calling there to be head to over head high waves on Money Tree’s. Surfing conditions are perfect with a light off-shore wind (expected to strengthen through out the day). With only 16 surfers spread down the line.
