30th April 2013
Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by your baliwaves.com (the original Bali surf report since 1999) for the latest news and best views on surfing and weather conditions here on the first choice tropical surfing holiday destination of Bali.
Yesterday the 29th and we ended up back down at Uluwatu chasing the best waves and surfing conditions again. Wave height down at Uluwatu through the morning was still in the 3-4ft range with a clean off shore wind, but by late morning through midday and a big 2.6mtr High tide it was hardly surfable. Around the 3.00PM mark and the tide now running our hard the racetrack started to spin out a few barrels. I did shoot some photos down there yesterday but haven’t had a chance to edit them up just yet.
Anyway today the 30th and with an early morning NNE wind and wave height in the 2-4ft range we took a run up to Canggu to see what was happening. The tide was just starting to run back in and surfing conditions were as clean as Canggu can be with the NNE wind. There was a fair bit of people traffic in the water and around 20 – 25 surfers on each of the 3 main breaks on location. Looking further south to Batu Bolong there were some way bigger numbers in the water.
Weather wise it’s been a funny old sorta day. We got off to a real nice start this morning with a clear blue sky that slowly turned to crap around 9.15AM at Canggu. As we watched the storm clouds rolling over first the bukit then Kuta then us. Hard wind driven rain as the Tradewind kicked straight into top gear for 20 minutes then a return to a full blast of sunshine and continuing hot afternoon.
