BALI / INDONESIA
27th – 28th September 2019
Hello surfers and lovers of Bali and thanks again for stopping by the baliwaves (Bringing you all the good things from Bali since back in 1999) for our latest news and best possible views on surfing and weather conditions here on the island of the Gods, and the No.1 tropical surfing holiday destination and gateway to Indonesia’s surfing paradise, Bali.
Alright so on the 27th apart from heading to Canggu looking for an opportunity to sneak a few right handers on the famous Pererenan river mouth. But only to find a Deus retro surfing contest being run and the river mouth rights off limits. But there sure were some nice little 2-3ft+ waves peeling off and by the look of it the competitors and spectators were having the time of their lives having it all to themselves. I might have to sign up for the next one I think.
Then to get back home and find our ISP down with some DSN issues was a bit of a downer. So what do you do when you can’t do any afternoon work ? head down the beach for a couple of beers with the boys of course !
Yesterday the 28th and just make certain that we didn’t run into another contest and or crowds we jumped in the car and drove back up the West Coast to Balian. As it shows in our latest photo gallery wave height was in the head to double head high range and less than 20 surfers spread right through the whole show. Surfing conditions were clean on arrival but within the hour the ESE-SE Trade wind started to kick in and gradually increase blowing cross / on shore at Balian. But all in all it wasn’t to bad at all.
Weather wise it was an overcast old day along the West Coast of Bali, early pre dawn rain was backed up with a couple more light showers through the morning. But it did clear up and the sun did make an appearance through the afternoon.
Today the 29th and right now it has just gone 6.16am and so far all I can see is blue sky down to the South end of the island and I think that’s where we will be heading. So stay tuned for more news and up dates through out the morning via our Twitter feed.
The next tide today will be a 2.5mtr High at 10.07am and with the New Moon rising last night we can expect to see some big tidal ranges over the next few days to come.
Bali Travel Tip
Mosquitoes are a real worry and do not discriminate between 5 star Hotels or your humble Guest House, so be smart!
This one is very important especially if you want to have a good nights sleep and not be worried about mosquito born diseases. After checking into your accommodation take a walk to the nearest warung (if you can find one) or mini mart and purchase a can of insect spray and some personal insect repellent. Before you go out for lunch or dinner make sure you put on some personal repellent, especially on your exposed legs. Then spray your room and go out for awhile. Also make sure you keep your room door shut, only open it to enter or exit so no mosquitoes can let themselves in. The total cost for the mosquito protection will be Rp30,000 so do yourself a favor and be mosquito smart in Bali.
I’ve also been told to let all the surfer / fishermen tuning in that our Bali sport fishing scene is really starting to heat up with some excellent catches of GT’s and Spaniards. Email us for more information
