BALI SURF & WEATHER REPORT
1st – 4th Nov 2020
Hello the everyone tuning into the baliwaves and firstly thanks for all your support for the baliwaves.com Just for the record baliwaves.com was the first website on line for Indonesia that had anything surfing related. In fact we were the 3rd website on line for all of Indonesia. The first was a Bali forum the second was a fishing website in Jakarta and coming in 3rd was your baliwaves.com These days I think there is something like 700,000,000. websites on line for Bali.
We hope everyone is surviving the best they can, here at ground level in Bali it really is about survival for the average people. For myself it’s all about getting through one day at a time, and some days are definitely better than others. The pandemic is dragging on and the longer it goes the more damage to the average persons mental health is really being stretched. We have made it through 10 months of no Family income only through the kindness and consideration of our friends. A big deep heart felt thanks to everyone who has considered our well being here in Bali.
Hey crew, well by the 1st of Nov wave height was starting to back off again around the traps here in Bali. On the 2nd it was pretty small but by midday late afternoon yesterday the 3rd we were starting to see a little more swell hitting the Outer Reefs here in Tuban. There were a few surfers in the water but it was a bit of a up hill battle with the ESE Trade wind howling off shore with gusts hitting 25knot+.
With the Spanish Mackerel on the bite up in the Seseh to Tanahlot area my crew and I were up there for the last 3 days straight doing our best to feed our families. Just about every fisherman here on the West Coast had the same idea so it was tough competition and I guess “lady luck” was good to have on my side, being the only white boy up there fishing by himself in his own traditional boat. But I knew quite a few of the crew and indeed Lady Luck was on my side right through until yesterday boating some nice fish up to the 12kg range. She ducked out on me for a few mins yesterday though and I lost a massive fish due to equipment failure or more like operator error. The wire trace (lucky) set I had been using the day before and boating big fish just couldn’t take the strain and the stainless (spring) steel wire trace snapped on me during a big fight. I should have changed it for a fresh leader.
Today the 4th and with wave height predicted to bump up and a perfect light / no wind morning Ray and I thought we would duck over to the East Coast and catch Keramas on the in coming tide. As it shows in our latest photo gallery wave height was a good honest 4ft / well over head and perfect glassy conditions. No shortage of surfers though with up to 25 surfers in the water around 10.30am. There were also some solid barrels down at Krupuk pt and at Finger lickings and even up at the old coffee shop there were some smoking lefts breaking. I’d imagine the whole East Coast was delivering good waves and all the better locations. Talking to a friend who lives in the area he said he surfed at “the secret spot” earlier in the morning with 20 other surfers.
Weather wise it was a hazy kinda morning over on the East side a little bit of sun shine but mainly just a thin veil of cloud cover for most of the time we were on the scene. Don’t get me wrong with hardly any wind it was still bloody hot. Right now at 2.45pm the temp is still a warm 31 Celsius, Humidity is at 69%. Wind direction is light(ish) out of the ESE at 10knot..
The next tide today will be a 0.6mtr Low at 5.19pm.
Tomorrows Surf Forecast is calling wave height to be slowly backing off through out the day but I don’t think there will be any shortage of waves on both the East or West Coast. They are also predicting light variable wind earlier before swinging once again to the ESE and hopefully backing off also through midday.
Ok friends thanks again for your support to the original Bali surf report website and my family and I can’t thank our friends who have been kind and considerate to lend us a helping hand through this un precedented time we are living. Thank You !
You know where I’ll be the next couple of days but all the same keep an eye on our social media pages Twitter, Instagram and FB for random up dates on surf and weather conditions here in Bali. How it really is ! And what ever you do please don’t think I’m having too much fun out in my open boat (no shady roof) for 12-14hrs each day under a tropical sun and weather that can blow in monster storms on top of you if your not paying attention to detail. It is a passion of mine, but believe me it’s bloody hard yakka.
