BALI / INDONESIA
2nd – 4th October 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.
Ok so on the 2nd with only small waves on offer and we know you lot don’t really want to see to many small waves infested with surf schools on the baliwaves, so we opted for an afternoon out fishing. There were a few schools busting up on the surface and also a few good sized Spaniards on the bite as well.
Yesterday the 3rd with no real increase in wave height we called another lay day hoping that today the 4th would be a little more productive with a predicted bump in size expected. So as it shows in our latest photo gallery we made our way down to Indonesia’s premier surfing location. Knowing with the crazy dry reef low tides we have been seeing the last few days the Racetrack would be our best bet. You can see in the wide angle photos just how much of the ancient lava flow bottom was exposed on the bottom of the tide.
I also shot a little bit of video footage this morning so I’ll check that out and hopefully have enough for a short clip, so stay tuned here to the original Bali Surf Report
Wave height early this morning was a consistent head to well over head high on the Racetrack with just a handful of surfers in the water. It was just too shallow for Temple’s or the Main Peak and the time. But Uluwatu was showing good form and looking like it was going to be going off with more water. But not quite with first the wind swinging light on shore out of the West and with more water also came a lot more surfers into the equation.
Weather wise it’s been a real nice day here in Bali with light off shore wind early before turning light on shore and eventually swinging back to the ESE around midday. Temperature wise right now at 1.45pm the mercury is on 30C with the Humidity on 65% and the UV index at 11. Wind direction is still ESE with gusts up to 18km/h.
Tomorrows Surf Forecast is calling for another increase in wave size but watch out for that dry reef through the early am. Expect light and variable wind to go with it.

Ok that’s us for now and if your a body boarder then make sure you have a flick through our latest photo gallery from August / September.
Bali Travel Tip
BALI BELLY (myth)
I often hear visitors saying stuff like, I was so sick with Bali belly (diarrhea / vomit) that part of my holiday was ruined. Well maybe back in the 70’s – 90’s it could have been a poor hygiene thing with eating cheap food / ice. But these days hygiene in the local resto’s and warungs is pretty good. The most common problem with people coming down with diarrhea is from their own poor hygiene practice. Yeah, if you want to avoid this shit.. be damned sure to be pedantic about washing your hands anytime you use your hands to put food in your mouth ! Even eating a potato chip for example. Your hands are going to be coming in direct contact with so many germ laden objects non stop, with the most dirty of them all (in any country for that matter) cash money ! Every warung or restaurant in Bali offer a wash basin for you to use, so use it ! The best friend you can have in your fight against being struck down by diarrhea is a small bottle of hand sanitizer that you can buy in any mini market or super market in Bali for around $2.00 Carry it with you if your going out for lunch or dinner and USE IT ! I’ve been using both the wash basins and the hand sanitizers for years, so make sure you do and have a healthy Bali holiday.
