Hello Bali people and thanks again for checking in here at the baliwaves.com. Not much change for the tourism sector here on the once thriving holiday island. Our Bali International airport did open as I mentioned before. But since it’s opening on the 14th of October not one international flight has landed in Bali. There was also a press statement from the airport saying that there are no international flights scheduled to land in Bali for the remainder of 2021.
Hopefully as all countries, including Indonesia continue with the vaccination program things should (fingers crossed) start to improve by the end of the first quarter of 2022. But the threat is not over yet if parts of Europe and the USA are any indication. I would imagine vaccination passports or proof of sorts will be in place for international travel for some time to come yet.
Domestic tourism is in full swing here in Bali with some parts of the island experiencing a big upsurge in traffic. But as far as Bali’s major tourist area of Kuta and Legian there is no or very little rub off or relief for the local economy.
We really want to Thank all our friends and supporters for all the help that you have given us to help get us this far, we are almost through this. Please don’t give up on us through this last leg of “containment” So if you could spare a dollar or two (every dollar makes a difference) then hit this link https://www.baliwaves.com/2020/08/baliwaves-needs-your-support/
Well, on the local surfing scene it’s been in a real flat spell. Normally when I’m doing swell forecasting research for Bali, I’m looking for shades of “red” from the forecasters. The last 2-3 weeks the only relief we are seeing are the shades of “blue from the forecasters. Shades of red on the forecasting GIFs would be delivering wave heights in the 10-20ft range. While what we are only getting of late with the shades of blue is at best 1-5ft or 1-3ft waves. November is renowned for small waves, but November 2021 has been one of the longest “small wave” periods I’ve seen in the last 27yrs.
The old saying of Bali always has a wave on offer is still basically true. I mean you can search the well-known “wave magnet” locations on the Southern end of the island in the Uluwatu area. Also, up the coast at Balian you can pretty well always count on there being at least a head high wave. But depending on wave / water quality is also another factor with those head high waves you might find.
Today the 24th I thought I’d take a break from trying to make a living from fishing and go see what was happening up at Canggu. Another known wave magnet here along Bali’s West coast. As it shows in some of the photos, I’ve loaded wave height at “The Gu” was also still only in the 1-2ft class or knee to waist high. The wind has been mostly light and variable through the mornings and very tricky to predict where it will eventually dedicate to. But this morning at Canggu the wind was already fresh out of the W-WSW at 8.00am.
Weather wise November has been pretty much on tract with lots of cloud and some very severe afternoon thunder and lightning storms. Right now, at 12.45am the temperatures a very warm 31C with the Humidity at 78%. Wind direction is now almost straight West at 10 knots.
The next tide today will be a 0.9mtr Low just before 6.00pm tonight.

Bali Moon Phases for 2021
November New Moon 4th / Full Moon 19th
December New Moon 4th / Full Moon 18th
Tomorrow’s Surf Forecast is saying that we should see wave height to keep slowly picking up over the next 24 – 36hrs. The wind is also predicted to be light and variable. Tomorrow might just be the best day for surfing for all of November.
On the long-range Surf Forecast there is not much to look forward to over the next week.
