23rd – 24th January 2014
Hi folks and welcome back to your baliwaves.com (keeping you in the loop with Bali since way back in 1999) for the latest news and best available views on surfing and weather conditions from here on the number 1 tropical surfing holiday destination of Bali.
Here we go again and welcome to the weekend here in Bali. But first here’s 26 photos we shot over on the East Coast yesterday at Keramas, plus a couple of frames from our baliwaves free to view webcam located over looking the impossibles line up.
Keramas yesterday did have a few waves coming through in the 2-3ft region but by the time we arrived the wind was already starting to swing to the WSW. That’s half the problem with the early morning low tide, waiting for enough water so I don’t put my crew on the rocks. At least 30 surfers were already in the water but after an hour or so the numbers dropped back to around 20 which is pretty good for Keramas these days. Back in the day we would consider 20 surfers in the water to be over crowded at Keramas, not anymore.
Weather wise yesterday over on the black sand beach it was a scorcher with the midday temperature in the mid 30’s on the Celsius scale.
This mornings (24th) 6.45Am surf check on the Outer reefs here in Tuban was still showing wave height hitting Kuta Reef to Airports in the 2-3ft class. Seems to be a little more size here on the West Coast but unfortunately the wind was already coming outta the West at 10knot, at the time.
I’ve also had some intel this morning from a friend surfing over on the East Coast calling Serangan beach at waist to chest high, off shore wind but with a full complement of assorted surf schools and long boards.
Weather wise today so far we have had all seasons in one day, early morning cloud cover then late morning rain. Now at 3.00PM the sun is out and powering up at 29 degree’s Celsius, Humidity is at 91%. Wind direction is still coming outta the West at 7-12knot.
Don’t forget coming up next Saturday there will be another beach clean up happening so if your in Bali try and get down to one of the 3 locations and get involved. Check photo #26 in today’s photo gallery for more details. Slim can’t make as he will be over in Australia on 2 weeks R&R desperately trying for a Lotto win, but Ketut and our crew will be there.
