Hi folks and welcome back to your baliwaves for the latest news and best possible views on surfing and weather conditions plus a little bit of other stuff. Yesterday the 11th our man Ketut was over on the black sand beach. As it shows in our latest photo gallery there were some very clean and super fun little waves in the 2-4ft range. The early morning session with the tide running in had a light off shore wind and only 15-surfers maxing out at 20 by 8.30am. Not too bad for waves of this quality I must say.
Weather wise there was some blue sky with a little high and thin cloud. Closer to home through the afternoon we saw another big and nasty electrical and rain storn move through the Canggu area around 4pm.
Speaking of Canggu I’ve seen a lot of distressed comments on Facebook the last week about just how bad the traffic is. My guess is due to the amount of tourists that have moved into the area helping to push the traffic flow into afternoon grid locks. The traffic has always been bad up that way (Petetinget, Berawa to Canggu) through the afternoons. Anyone in the know knows to avoid the area at all costs. But I hate to say it that if the tourists are complaining about the traffic now then just wait for the Christmas / New Year holidays to arrive next month.
Today the 12th and as the wave modes predicted we have more of those 2-4 footers at the better locations around Bali this morning. Ketut is out with the camera equipment and has sent me a quick report and a very tasty looking couplie of photos from where he is. He was calling 2-4ft waves with 20 surfers in the water and a light off shore wind at 8.39pm. We will have to wait and see the results of his work later this afternoon. So stay tuned
Closer to home here in Tuban our 6.30am surf check on the Outer reefs was showing 2-3ft+ waves between Kuta Reef and Airport left. The wind was a light NNW at the time. No one in the water on Airport Left but there were surfers pouring out to Middle Reef.
Breaking News during the G20 meetings being held here in Bali surfing at Airport Left or Airport Right has been banned for the duration of the G20. As surreal as it sounds that is what has been passed onto all surf taxi drivers from Patra beach to Kuta beach. Yesterday afternoon there was at least 6 traditional boats (mine included) chasing schools of fish right behind the airport runway without any drama.
Weather wise out side this morning it’s a light overcast sort of a day where we are in South Kuta. A likely chance of more afternoon thunder and lightning storms in the Canggu area. Right now at 10.20am the temperature is a mild 29C with the humidity at 79%. Wind direction is now W-SW @ 3-6knt.
The next tide today in Bali will be a 2.0mtr High at 10.59pm.
Tomorrows Surf Forecast has the wave models showing wave height to be ever so slightly backing off a foot or so throughout the day. Wind is forecasted to light and variable early and then only God knows where it will be coming from by midday.
Ok friends thanks again for dropping into the original Bali surf report and stay tuned for more news and views as we get them
G20 awareness for everyone here in Bali over the next couple off weeks be prepared for traffic diversions and delays with some roads and access closed off. So please allow a little extra time for any travel and I would be avoiding the Nusa Dua area for sure.
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 12kg 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. Everyone that is that’s not using US, Euro, GP or AU dollars that is.
