15th – 16th May 2013
Hello surfers and thanks again for dropping into the baliwaves.com (bringing it to you since 1999) for the latest on surfing and weather conditions plus a 70 strong photo gallery from right here on the only place to come for your next tropical surfing holiday, Bali.
Ok so yesterday the 15th and my family and I were up at our village participating in the local election for the next govenor of Bali. But I did have a guest photographer (T. Hawke) filling in for me and he was up at Canggu shooting the sand bar and right hander river mouth. You’ll find Tommy’s photo’s No 34 till the end.
But today the 16th and the boys and I were down at Bali’s premier surfing location that put Bali on the surfing radar back in the early 70’s, ULUWATU. As it shows in the photos I snapped off with the big 1000mm (full manual) wave height was backing off but still hitting the Main Peak and Temple sections in the 2-4ft range. Crowd wise it was pretty sedate down there today with only around 60+ surfers.
Surfing conditions were clean and glassy all day even with a light on shore wind on it.
Weather wise it was a mainly hot and sunny one here on the holiday island with the midday temperature busting through the early 30’s on the Celsius scale.
We’s also like to give a shout out to our friends at ELECTRIC (Indonesia) and you’ll soon be seeing a lot more of these guys and their team riders here in the baliwaves.com.
Ok folks sorry but I gotta go hit the showers and organize some dinner for my tribe seeing as though it’s just gone 6.30PM. But stick with the original Bali surf report becuase we keep it coming relentlessly.
