****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hello people and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves (’99) again today for the latest news on surfing and weather conditions from the only sane choice for a surfing holiday, Bali. Back to work again for most of us hey and we hope ya’s all had a nice Christmas where ever you were. Now there’s only a hand full of days left before we roll over the year and start all over again.
Today’s surf check on the Outer Reefs was showing wave height and surfing conditions pretty much a carbon copy of yesterday. Around knee to waist high on the set waves breaking between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. The wind at the time was coming out of the West @ 4-7knot but has steadily been increasing in strength through out the day.
Ketut made the run over to Nusa Dua around 1.30PM. And as you can see in today’s photo gallery surfing conditions were clean with off-shore wind out of the West. Wave height was a fairly consistent head to head high plus with around 40 surfers scattered along the reef.
Tidal info for today had us down for a 0.3mtr Low tide @ 8.00AM and then filling back in with a 2.1mtr High around the 2.30PM mark.
Weather wise we’ve had a mainly sunny day here in the Tuban / Kuta area and pretty much likewise over at Nusa Dua. More cloud showing through late afternoon with a chance of an over night shower.
Traffic Alert; Domestic Christmas Holiday traffic is in full swing with afternoon grid locks on the main arteries. Then add in 3 taxi’s for every single tourist on the street.
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta; — 1US$=Rp9,000 — 1AU$=Rp8,885 — Rates will vary.
We’ve also been playing around with our “Surf Spots” page where we are currently up-dating with more locations, and an extra bonus of Bali street maps. So go and get yourself lost in there !
