Hi friends we really want to thank everyone who has helped us get through the pandemic and total lack of income. I’m so happy to see the speed at which Bali is coming back into swing again. But, the Kuta and Tuban area are still a fair way off “normal” We have just been able to cover our daily living costs but that’s about it. Just for the record, due to our old camera equipment failing we did a deal with a good friend and regular visitor who stayed with us for 3 weeks. Our guy’s rent just covered a thousand dollars which we exchanged for a mid quality new camera. It was a tough 3 weeks though, with very little income, again.
But baliwaves needs camera equipment to carry on, usually we upgrade / burn out our old gear around every 4 yrs. This time round we went 6yrs and were very lucky to get through. But hopefully (fingers crossed) we are on track and on the come back trail again. Please don’t give up on us through this, as hopefully we are on the last leg. 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/
Please don’t hesitate to drop us an email for any Bali surf or accommodation info and we’ll do our best to help out.
Hey folks and thanks again for stopping by the baliwaves for the latest news and best possible views on surfing and weather conditions, from here on the World’s No.1 tropical surfing holiday destination of Bali.
Ok yesterday the 22nd Ketut was down on the bukit at Uluwatu. He was set up and ready to blast away by 8.00am. At that time he reckoned the sets were hitting the Main Peak in the 3-5ft range (double head high). But within an hour or so it was pouring through in the 5-8ft class. The wind was clean off shore with an in water crowd of maybe 40+ surfers spread the the Main Peak multiple take off spots. I had to go down the the beach and de-foul the bottom of my moored “Jukung” on the 2.00pm low tide.
It wasn’t a super dry low tide and there were surfers out on all sections between Kuta reef and Airport left. Wave height was in the 3-5ft range (head to double head high) and the wind was blowing hard off shore out of the SE.
Weather wise it was a very warm and sunny afternoon here in South Kuta. A typical Bali type.
Today the 23rd and our 5.45am surf check on the Outer Reefs was showing an overnight slight bump in size between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. The tide was still running in so Kuta reef and Airport Left / Right were the best bet for a barrel or two. While the bigger set waves were for sure hitting Middle Reef.
Ketut has phoned through a quick report from where he is on the East Coast of head to double head high waves of perfect shape. Clean and glassy, or smooth as silk conditions with around 25 surfers in the water. I’ll be looking forward to seeing “the magic beans” when he gets back to HQ. Stay tuned and we’ll keep the news and views flowing to you.
Weather wise today, over night rain has left a mostly overcast gloomy sky. There has been a few drops of rain but I’m hoping it clears away for a sunny afternoon. Temperature wise right now at 9.30am it’s 29C with the Humidity at 95%. Wind direction is NNW at 2-4knt
The next tide today here in Bali will be a 0.4mtr Low at 2.51pm
Next Moon phase will be a New Moon rising on the 25th
Tomorrows Surf Forecast has the models calling for another increase in wave height. Wind wise, my guess (as good as any) would be for more light and variable wind out of the Northern quadrant early with the SE Trade wind trying it’s best to kick in around late morning.
We have also added some boardshorts and trucker caps into our original baliwaves surf wear page so check it out and order up some quality made apparel exclusive to baliwaves.
Breaking News Department. Petrol has jumped 30% in price from the 4th of September so be prepared for slight increases in all prices on just about everything here in Bali. The first of the increases was LPG, our 5kg refills have gone from Rp135K now at 230K for the same fill. 95% of Indonesia runs on gas for cooking so that’s going to hurt everyone.
