Howdy folks and thanks for taking the time out to stop by the baliwaves.com (the original Bali surf report since 1999) for the latest news and closest views on today’s surfing and weather conditions from right here on the best value for wave count tropical surfing holiday destination of BALI.
Well it’s been a pretty weird day weather wise here on the holiday island but still no shortage of waves on both sides of the island today. My first surf recon on the Outer Reefs here in sleepy Tuban was looking good with 3-5 footers peeling off between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. No doubt around the other side of the Airport run way Airport Rights would have been producing some sly ones on the incoming tide. Kuta Reef was by far the best option through the morning with super consistent chest to head high plus wave bending down the reef. No shortage of surfers in the water though. Middle Reef was drawing in the bigger set waves and pushing the double head high range. Airport Left was much more quite crowd wise and there was a small window around midday when it was looking perfect with only half a dozen surfers on it.
I also had a heads up from Bali’s premier surfing location of Uluwatu calling some solid bombs coming through with clean and glassy surfing conditions.
But as it shows in today’s photo gallery I had Ketut loaded up and on the road to Keramas to see what was happening around 1.00PM. As it shows in the photos even though the wind here was also light on shore there was still some nice face’s to work with and the off tube section popping up. Only 6-8 surfers in the water through the afternoon session and Ketut had to pack up around 2.30PM cause there was not one surfer still in the water.
Weather wise it’s been a mainly warm and sunny day but still plenty of clouds drifting about to the North and South of us in Tuban. The wind has also just about done every point on the compass. So who know’s what she’ll be blowing tomorrow. Maybe if you follow my early morning Twitter weather up date you’ll have a decent chance of knowing.
I‘ve also finally got another Bali Sport Fishing up date completed and loaded onto our fishing page so if your into big fish on light gear take a tour through there and check out some of the beasts we’ve beaten over the years gone by.
