****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Howdy folks and once again thanks for dropping into the baliwaves.com, Bali’s first, foremost and still the most highest viewed Bali surf and weather report website on the net. Just what you need to help plan your next vacation to the real surfers paradise of Bali.
Well this mornings 6.30AM surf check on the Outer Reefs was showing a touch more energy with chest to head high plus waves breaking between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. With the 7.00AM 1.7mtr High tide Airport left was looking the best with a consistent head high set wave. Slightly bigger waves hitting Middle Reef and looking good for the lower end of the tide. Kuta Reef was slightly smaller than the rest but still some nice shaped waves wrapping down the reef.
We took a chance on heading up to Keramas over on Bali’s East Coast arriving at 7.15AM to find the on shore wind already ripping into it coming out of the East @ 6-10knot. Not too mention at least 20+ of the hottest junior surfers in the World all over it. Needless to say we didn’t hang around too long. So our next choice was too head back to the South eastern end of the island to Balangan. As ya’s can see in the handful of photos I shot wave height here wasn’t too bad with head to head high plus set waves and clean off-shore wind. Crowd wise it appears that the numbers are starting to back off as the usually crowded wave of Balangan only had around 25 surfers scattered along the reef.
Weather wise here in Bali today we’ve pretty well had nothing but blue sky and sunshine with a maximum midday temperature of around 32 degree’s celsius.
Hopefully by Wednesday afternoon we will start to see the start of a moderate sized new swell starting to show on the reefs. Thursday is even looking promising for a few Padang Padang sized barrels. So stay tuned and we’ll keep you all in the loop.
Sms text surf report from the good guys at the G-Land Surf Camp was calling wave height to be hitting the Launching Pad in the solid 4-5ft range. At 7.45AM the wind was already blowing clean off-shore, but how’s this, no surfers in the water ! Could be an excellent time to catch a few un crowded waves over in G-Land.
