BALI SURF & WEATHER REPORT
9th – 10th April 2021
Hi Bali people and thanks for dropping into the baliwaves (the original Bali surf report since back in 1999). We have been trying to keep the reports photos and videos coming through to you as best we can, but times have been tough and surfing conditions have been pretty ordinary in the early months of 2021, well so far anyway. Now with the season almost ready to go into full on Tradewind mode things will all start to look better.
Talking about hard times we are still having a hard time so if you can spare us a dollar (Via our PayPal account) it would make a big difference for my family. We (sorry just had to get my family out of the house as we had a slight earth tremor, all clear here now in Bali) would really like to give our heart felt thanks to all our friends that have helped us out with paying our bills and buying food etc. No income since Jan 2020 has been a long hard stressful slug. Thanks again !!!!
Ok on the wave front if you have been checking my surf and weather video reports on baliwaves Twitter, Instagram and Facebook then you’d know it’s been pretty small. We were expecting a predicted bump in wave height later this afternoon. So we thought we’d take a run back up to Canggu to see if anything was happening.
The 8.00am traffic was pretty thick from Kerobokan right through to the Echo beach turn off but we were stoked to see a good 3-5ft of swell when we pulled into the Temple car park. On closer inspection wave height was just a little too un organized and a little wind for the SandBar and the surfers that were in the water. Except for a lone body boarder who was getting some sick pits.
The right hander on the Rivermouth was looking a better option with the top end of the tide. Some nice shape and a few long rides with the odd bazza. There was maybe 20-30 surfers in the water but a pretty low key crew and not the usual hard core ripsters.
Weather wise today it’s been hot and sunny right from the word go. Right now at 3.45pm the temperature is a warm 31 degree’s Celsius, Humidity is at 76%. Blue sky, no cloud in my view here in Tuban. Earlier at Canggu the wind was light on shore out of the West. But I’m feeling it now to be very light out of the E-ESE. As I mentioned in the front of this up date we also did feel a small earth tremor here in the Kuta area. The epicenter was a long way away from Bay off the coast of Java at 6.7, no Tsunami threat.
We also have a New Moon rising tomorrow night (11th April) so we will see some big tidal ranges over the next 3-4 days.
Tomorrows Surf Forecast is calling for wave height to bump up a little more, but I guess we will wait and see what happens. If it does I’ll be heading over to the East coast for some clean early morning conditions.
On the Bali Corona Virus situation well things have turned around a little here in Bali. The number of new cases Nationally have dropped off considerable, yesterdays report was of 5,265 new cases nationally . While Here in Bali we are still seeing a 7 day average of over 200 new cases. Yesterday there was also 11 reported deaths from Covid-18 here in Bali. On a positive note while vaccine supplies in Bali are holding out there has been some very impressive participation from the residents of Bali this last week, not just in proposed “green zones”.
Ok then well next week on the 14th don’t expect to much in the way of anything from the Balinese people except prayer and ceremonies for our Galungan (Hari Raya Galungan).
That’s all from me for now, hopefully I’ll be back out there again tomorrow bringing you the latest news and views on surfing and weather conditions from here on the Worlds No.1 tropical surfing holiday destination on Bali.
