Welcome back to your baliwaves for the latest news and best views on today’s surfing and weather conditions. Direct from your first choice tropical surfing holiday destination. Life is always better in Bali !
Yesterday the 2nd after our Galungan prayers and cleaning up at home I eventually made it down for an afternoon surf check. The tide was out for a late arvo dry reef low of 0.05mtrs. It was almost possible to walk out to Middle Reef I reckon. Wave wise there were some nice low tide chest to well over head high lefts peeling off on Middle Reef. Way to low for Kuta reef or Airport left, or right for that matter. Except for the usual crowd of domestic tourists it was very quite down at the beach. 99% of our local warungs were close due to “Galungan” Things should resume back as normal by tomorrow the 4th.
Today the 3rd and we were back on the program and out on the road by 5.10am and the first “call to prayer” Arriving at our Primary destination just on sunrise and to see 3-5 footers peeling off and 2 surfers in the water. We had around an hour with a very light crew before we were joined by some Korean and Japanese surfers. We hung out until around 9.30am as the tide started to fill in and the wind slowly shift to a light Southerly breeze.
Weather wise here on the World’s No.1 tropical holiday destination has just been it’s usual, perfect. Right now at 1.00pm it’s warmed right up with the temp on 29C and the humidity at 79%. Wind direction has now swung around to the ESE at 26km/h.
The next tide today is going to be a reef exposing 0.03mtr 5.43pm
Tomorrow’s Surf Forecast is predicting a new swell to start bumping up size in the early hours on the morning and the period will grow from 15 seconds up to 19 seconds by 6.00am. By mid morning we should be seeing some solid waves all over the island with the peak of the swell around sunset and into the early hours of the evening. At this point in time it looks like August is going to be laying on the swell nice and thick.
We also have a new Short Surf Story from our very talented resident writer Nick Bruechle coming in the very near future, so keep an eye out for that.
Heads up if you are thinking about hitting the Ments. I’ve just had a couple of friends call in after returning from a 10 day boat charter. As perfect as all the advertisements and old photos of perfect un crowded waves look. It’s not all glamour and idyllic conditions. My friends spoke of 3 decent days of waves with out too many other boats in their vicinity. They also told of steaming into stiff winds and swell, bouncing and gut slapping along for up to 15hrs straight, sea sickness and cabin fever. But there is no doubting the beauty of the tropical Mentawai islands and perfect waves laying just off the coast of Sumatra. Booking up to a year in advance though you just never know what your going to get, it’s your call.
