28th – 29th December 2010
****AFTERNOON SURF UP-DATE****
Hi everyone and thanks for calling by the baliwaves.com (since ’99) for the latest news on surfing and weather conditions to leave the happiest of all holiday islands, Bali.
Just to bring you all up to date, yesterday the 28th was (for me anyway) a stay in doors type day. Nothing but heavy rain from early in the morning through until late afternoon. I definitly improved my PS skills.
This morning the 29th and the day actually started off pretty good with light wind and light cloud. But virtually just after I sent out my first twitter up-date the wind started howling out of the West and the rain started to bucket down. It let up enough for us to make a break over to Serangan on the East Coast around 11.30AM. As you’ve already seen in today’s gallery conditions were pretty ordinary. Wave height was pushing head to head high plus on the bigger sets and the wind was light cross – shore. Crowd wise I’d say Santa got a lot of requests for mini mals and surfing lessons. At least 125 *surfers on the main sections and another 15 – 20 just over to left.
Tidal info for today had a 0.6mtr Low @ 9.30AM and then running back in for a 2.1mtr High around the 4.00PM mark.
Weather wise it’s been mainly cloudy and overcast with scattered showers. Temperature wise the mercury would have peaked at around 27 degree’s Celsius. While the water temperature is a warm 24 – 25 degree’s Celsius.
Looking at the swell predictions for the next week we should (fingers crossed) see a nice medium sized swell hitting the reefs sometime around next Sunday.
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.
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 !
