31st December – 1st January
Hi surfers and thanks again for taking the time out to drop by the baliwaves.com (The one and only original baliwaves since back in 1999) for the latest news and best views on surfing and weather conditions from out and bout here on the always in season little tropical surfing holiday destination of Bali.
Wishing all our Supporters and Sponsors the very best of everything in 2015.
Ok so if you are tuning in right now chance are that you may be feeling slightly under the weather from too much partying on New Year’s Eve, maybe. Not to worry if your here in bali cause the weather is not that crash out nor the waves today here in Bali.
Yesterday the 31st of december as we mentioned yesterday saw the finals get underway to decide the 2014 Uluwatu Board Riders Club Champion. I had Ketut down there on the scene for the duration as you can see in our current 68 strong photo gallery. Wave height was again in the 2-3ft range and tricky condition’s to say the least. But still all the competitors gave it their best shot and another successful day for the Uluwatu Board Riders. I wish I could have been there for the after comp celebrations, I’m sure they would have been celebrating in style.

Weather wise yesterday it was another mainly overcast and windy kinda day to see out the year.
Today the 1st of January and again we’ve only got those small waves and strong W-WSW wind happening outside. I did get a text saying there were some 2-2ft+ waves breaking at Serangan and you’d also find a little bit more swell happening down on the South Eastern End of the island between Nyang Nyang’s and Nusa Dua if your really keen.
The next couple of days are also looking very ordinary in the surf department, but there will be waves if you know where to look. It appears just about the whole of the Indian Ocean is dominated by High pressure systems for now. Saturday through Monday should be providing a little relief for us surfwise and then some more towards the end of next week.
Weather wise it’s been mainly cloudy and great for the start on 2015 and right now at 2.40PM we have a mild but very humid 28 degree’s Celsius after some solid midday rain. Wind direction is coming out of the W-WSW @ 9-12knot+.
Ok so we made it through another year here in Bali, hopefully in a few more days all the domestic traffic will have gone back to the big island and the grommets will be back in school around the 5th of Jan, back to normal again. So thanks again for all your support in 2014 and lets hope 2015 is bigger and better for all of us.
