****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hello crew and welcome back to the baliwaves.com for the 1 click latest news on surfing and weather conditions here on the No.1 surfing holiday destination of Bali. And I can’t hold back any longer with some new news for you, our supporters. Over the last few days we have been trialing 2 web cams (that actually works) for baliwaves.com. We are still a few weeks out from turning them on permanently but it’s looking very promising at this point in time. Locations, well you’ll just have to wait and see.
Not a lot happening on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban this morning. At 7.30AM wave height was only showing in the 1-2ft+ range which is equivilent of say knee to waist high plus, that was between Kuta Reef and Airport left. I also took a spin on the bike down along Kuta beach where wave height was even smaller. But further north at Padma st in Legian there was a few nice little beach break waves coming through in the waist to shoulder high range. Quite a lot of surfers in the water down along the beach breaks.
Surfing conditions have been pretty well normal with the wind coming out of the SE – SSE @ 7 – 12knot.
Tidal info for today had us down for a 0.8mtr Low @ 10.00AM and then only just running back in for a 1.4mtr Low around 4.00PM. Not much tidal difference at the moment as we are in the middle of the moon phase between full and new.
Weather wise it’s been mainly hot and sunny with the odd patch of cloud drifting through. Temperature wise the mercury would have easily busted 32 degree’s celsius.
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta you will find that –1AU$=Rp8,350 — 1US$=Rp8,925 —
Sms text surf report from our friends at the G-Land Surf Camp was calling wave height to still be a very fun sized head to well over head high. With the best waves on Money Tree’s down through the launching Pad. Only 6 surfers in the water at 7.30AM.
