****MORNING SURF UP-DATE****
Howdy folks and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves.com (’99) for today’s 1 click run down on surfing and weather conditions from here on the happy little holiday island of Bali.
This mornings 7.00AM surf check on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban (West Coast) was looking a little more reasonable with waist to chest high waves breaking between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. Hardly any wind present at the time so surfing conditions were clean and glassy. The tide was still running out heading for 0.4mtrs, so Middle Reef was the only option for a paddle on the Outers. Now at 9.30AM the wind has turned to the West and increased to around the 7 – 10knot class.
We sent Ketut for a run up to Keramas earlier this morning to see what’s going down up there. He has since phoned through to tell of wave height also in the waist to head high range. Clean and glassy surfing conditions with only 10 surfers in the water at the time. So you can expect some new photos this afternoon and I’ll try and get them loaded up before it’s time for you to leave the office.
Leo’s 8.30AM sms surf report from Serangan (East Coast) was calling wave height to be coming through in the waist to head high range. Clean and glassy surfing conditions with only 25 surfers in the water at the time.
The next tide will be a 2.2mtr High @ 3.00PM
Weather wise outside this morning there was some light cloud cover left over from last nights storm. Shaping up for a fine morning through till midday and then we might see some more heavy cloud building up through the afternoon, and rain. Temperature wise heading for a high between 28 – 30 degree’s celsius.
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta you’ll find that — 1US$=Rp9,045 — 1AU$=Rp8,920 — Rates will vary.
Swell Forecast for the next few days is looking pretty wild and unstable. There is another solid storm building between Bali and North Western Australia and it has in it’s center wave height showing up to 40ft+. But not really directed at any land mass. The charts do vary a quite a bit on the swell that will be generated over the next 48hrs, ranging from 13ft to 18ft for Bali. But the tell tale wave period is calling for a 10 – 11 second interval between waves. So I guess we’ll have to just wait and see what happens. But the next 7 days is showing waves all week for anyone lucky enough to be here on holiday.
Good news for any of you that want to get over to the legendary location of G-Land this year as baliwaves.com will still be dishing out a solid 15% discount off their advertised prices for the G-Land Surf Camp.
