****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Howdy folks and thanks for stopping by the baliwaves.com for our 1 click run down on surfing and weather conditions today, from here on the best value surfing holiday destination your ever going to experience, Bali.
Well by late yesterday afternoon wave height between Kuta Reef and Airport Left was rocking through, easily in the over head to double head high plus sector. This morning it seemed as though the swell must have peaked over night, now showing in the head to double head high range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. And I have to admit Kuta Reef was looking perfect on the morning high tide.
We decided we’d still head down south for a quick look at Uluwatu while the tide was still dropping and then slip back to Padang Padang for the afternoon session. As you can see in these photos I shot wave height was occasionally getting into the double to double head high plus range. Crowd wise there would have only been 12 – 15 surfers in the water. But what is becoming the normal at Padang Padang when it’s not firing on eight cylinders is the amount of body boarders in the water, at least 75% yesterday. Across the channel from Padang Padang is the top end of Impossible’s reef and there were plenty of lines bending all the way down to Bingin. Also in the head to well over head range as far as I could see.
Surfing conditions early in the day were clean and glassy with the wind light and variable. It was around late morning to midday that the wind came up out of the SE – SSE.
Tidal info had us marked down for a 2.1mtr High @ 10.00AM and then running out for a 0.4mtr Low around 4.00PM.
Weather wise down on the southern end of the island it was mainly overcast with a few drops of rain here and there. All the same temperature wise it was a warm and humid 28 degree’s Celsius.
