BALI / INDONESIA
5th – 7th January 2019
Hello everyone and welcome back to the baliwaves (keeping you in the loop with Bali’s surfing scene since back in 1999) for for our latest news and best possible views. From right here on the No.1 tropical surfing holiday destination and gateway to Indonesia’s surfing paradise, Bali.
Alright just to bring ya’s up to scratch, like I mentioned in our last up date on the 5th it’ was “Kuningan” right across Bali signifing the last day of the Balinese Galungan. The yesterday the 6th I was back up in our mountain side family village collecting my family after the kids spent their last week of school holidays on the Grandparents humble farm.
But today it was all about surfing and I can still smell the zinc cream that was caked on my face this morning. We collected out crew and then made our way back over to the village of Serangan, with the early morning low tide we were hoping that crowds would be down and the waves pumping. That’s pretty much how it was, wave height was in the 2-4ft class (chest to over head) with a clean off shore wind that held up through until around 9.30AM. Crowd wise it wasn’t too bad and great to surf this wave again with out all the learners on long boards in the line up. It was also so good to catch up with a couple of my local Serangan surfer friends after such a long time of not surfing here.
It was even more of a buzz after we had finished surfing and getting changed when a a couple of people riding past on a motor bike yelled out my name and gave us a wave and big smile. Serangan even though it is a fairly large town, everyone knows each other in that Balinese way. I’ve been surfing there with my friends for almost 25years and it was so good to be back.
Nb; with the early morning WNW wind you could still strongly smell the rubbish from “the dump” so good luck to the Chinese developers with the dreams of having a private Chinese holiday island.
Sorry we didn’t get any photos today as there’s no boat channel at Serangan on the lower tide or even on the high tide for that matter, but we will have a solution for that very soon so stick around the baliwaves, it’s all going to be happening in 2019.
I also heard from a trusted source that Canggu was cranking today and I’m sure it would have also been on fire at Nusa Dua and Keramas as well with the early morning wind.
Weather wise it’s been a mostly hot and sunny day where we have been. Driving back home after our surf the Toll road had a lot of rain water and all the road was soaked back near the airport but not a cloud in sight. Wind wise now at 2.30pm it’s coming out of the South at 4-7knot. Temperature is on 32 degree’s Celsius.
