24th – 25th August 2013
Hi folks and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves.com (Indonesia’s first surf website since 1999) for our Sunday Session on surfing and weather conditions from here on the best value for tropical surfing holiday dollar destination of BALI.
Ok so you must have guessed there hasn’t been a helluva lot of surf happening here the last couple of days. Here along the West Coast yesterday it was virtually flat on the Outer Reefs of Tuban between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. But just for fun on the 24th my guests and I headed up to the Legian strip of beach breaks and rented out some long boards. Anf I do have to admit what started out as a boring day turned into a real good fun day. So of course we had to finish off our long boarding session with a few cold Bintang beers under the shadey tree’s along the beach.
This morning the 25th and our morning surf check on the Outer Reefs was showing a significant increase in size with 1-3 footers breaking between Kuta Reef and Airports. So we were hoping that by the midday High tide came around our new swell would be well and truelly on us. To try and escape the Peak Season crowds we headed back over to Keramas on the East Coast arriving around 9.00AM and giving the tide time to cover the reef. At first we had high hopes pulling into a totally deserted car park. And there were some nice little waves peeling off on the Main break right in front of the new resort. But after a quick head count of 35 surfers packed tightly together it was an easy call to go try someh where else.
This paid off for my guests and I nicely, with only 1 other surfer where we chose to head to. As it shows in today’s gallery the wind had already started to blow light on shore but surfing conditions were still clean and tidy and wave height in the 2-4ft class.
Today’s G-Land surf report came through at 8.00AM calling in wave height to have also picked up some and at the time breaking in the 3-4ft range on Kongs. No surfers in the water at the time with the wind light off shore.
So if anyone is interested in going over to the legendary left hand wave, G-LAND of East Java contact me and baliwaves.com will hook ya’s up with a solid 10% discount.

Weather wise here in Bali this weekend it’s been perfect for the beach and holidays. Hot and sunny all the way through.
The next tide today in Bali is going to be a 0.3mtr Low at 6.30PM
Ok friends make sure you tune into the original Bali surf report again tomorrow and hopefully we’ll have that new swell on our reef breaks and a lot more surfing / photo options open for us.
