19th – 20th May 2013
Hi surfers and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves.com (the original Bali surf report since 1999) for the latest news and best views on surfing and weather conditions from right here on the best value for your hard earned tropical surfing holiday dollar destination of BALI.
Yesterday the 19th and we were down on the bukit and Bali’s premier surfing location of ULUWATU. Wave height as it shows in the first half of today’s photo gallery was hitting the Main Peak and Temple sections in the waist to head high class and the occassional bigger freak set. Surfing conditions were clean and tidy with a light off shore wind before it swung more to the West and then right around to the West around midday.
Today the 20th and with minimal swell showing, actually pretty well flat on the Outer reefs here in Tuban on the morning high tide. So we jumped back in the rental and headed up to canggu here on Bali’s West Coast. Arriving around 7.30AM to find wave height as expected only showing in the waist to chest high range, but as the tide was running out there were some bigger head to over head high freak sets breaking on all 3 of the main breaks in this area. Surfing conditions were clean with the early morning Northerly wind blowing straight off shore here, until it switched to the West and continued to increase in strength.
The next tide today will be a 1.7mtr High just affter 6.00PM.
Weather wise it’s been another mainly hot and sunny day here along the West Coast. Temperature wise right now at 4.00PM the mercury is sitting on 30 degree’s Celsius and the wind still outta the West at 13kms.
