6th – 7th – 8th December 2014
Hello surfers and welcome back to your baliwaves.com (bringing yo the news from Bali since back in 1999) for the latest on surfing and weather conditions from right here on our first choice tropical surfing holiday island called BALI.
Ok so as you know, the surf down here around the Southern end of the island instead of cranking as it usually does has been super small combined with un favorable wind. In other words, it’s been crap since we got back from Balian on the 5th.
But the charts were showing a slight bump in wave height this morning so we headed out with the boys to see if we could find something to surf. Starting off with a 6.45AM surf check on the Outer Reefs here in Tuban to find wave height a wind driven 1-2ft from the 15knot+ Westerly wind.
From there we took a quick run over to Serangan beach. Arriving shortly after 8.15AM to find some ok fun little let and rights in the 2-2ft+ range with an off shore wind. There were actually a couple of head high freak sets. So it was looking more positive now and the boys were out there for a paddle. There were under 20 surfers in the water up till this point in time, then by 9.00AM there must have been 10 or more surf schools rock up and seemingly all hit the main surf area at once, turning it to mayhem.
It didn’t take my crew long after this to bail out of there so we toweled off and cruised up the coast a little further for a look at Keramas. By the time we did the 30 min drive up there the wind had swung more to the S-SW and on shore. But it didn’t make much difference as there were only 1-1ft+ waves breaking anyway. According to my friends who work at Ngurah’s they reckoned there would have been close to 30 surfers on the main break earlier and another 15 out the front on carparks.
Weather wise today it was a mainly overcast morning with a few drops of rain on the East Coast. Clearing after lunch for a hot and sunny afternoon back home on the West Coast. Right now at 4.00PM the temperature is a warm 30 degree’s Celsius with the Humidity on 79%. Wind direction is WSW at 10 – 14knot.
