****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hello surfers and thanks for stopping by the baliwaves.com (since ’99) for the latest and most complete run down on surfing and weather conditions from here on the friendly little holiday island of Bali.
This mornings surf check here on the Outer Reefs of Tuban was as expected pretty much flat. The tide was just coming off the bottom of a reef exposing 0.1mtr Low so what swell there was, was just lapping onto the reef in the ankle to knee high at best. Not much chance of finding a clean wave along Bali’s West Coast today with the wind coming out of the WSW @ 8 – 10knot. We did make the effort and went for a run over to Serangan on the East Coast, but only to find wave height also only in the 1-2ft range and the wind cross/on-shore.
Weather wise out there today, well once the rain cleared up this morning we’ve had a mainly hot and sunny day with the odd patch of cloud. Temperature wise the mercury would have easily reached 33 degree’s celsius.
The next tide is going to be a 1.9mtr High just after midday.
Traffic up-date; It’s back, yes sir with the combination of Indonesian school holidays, Australian school holiday and Christmas holidays it’s getting bad out there on the streets and highway. Afternoon from around 3.00PM on is a good time to avoid being in a car anywhere within a 10km radius from Kuta.
Changing dollars on the streets of Bali; — 1US$=Rp8,910 — 1AU$=Rp8,800 — (rates will vary from vendor to vendor)
Our surf outlook for the next 7 days is looking grim with a very placid Indian Ocean. Looks like I’m going to be getting in a day or two of some Balinese style sport fishing.
