Yesterday the 26th our team had a huge day. We were on a mission to get some good waves and were on the road just after 5.00am. Taking on that mean old West coast highway that leads to Balian. A road that demands a lot of focus and concentration with the amount of bad drivers that use the main artery to East Java. So with that in mind we took it easy and pulled into Warung Dekis just before 7.00am.
The first glimpse of the ocean was worth the drive to see a super clean 3-5ft of swell hitting the A frame peak. Lots of waves breaking on all the different sections either side of the Peak and there was a good crowd in the water. Nb; I do have to say right now around Bali there are a lot of surfers in the water at most locations. But you do have to remember right now is the Peak Season for surfing in Bali. Even so we haven’t had to deal with crowds you see at other World class surfing destinations, that’s for sure.
Surfing conditions at Balian were clean and glassy lasting through until 9.30am when the ESE Trade wind made it’s way to us. We were done surfing by 10.00am and after a leisurely brunch in Dekis we headed East and home. Sorry I didn’t get this up for you yesterday but I was drained after the drive.
Today the 27th and we didn’t travel as far today settling for clean and glassy 2-3 footers at The Gu. We arrived just after sun rise to find some super clean waves hitting all 3 of the main sections. Crowd wise for a Sunday it wasn’t too bad and my mate Jez and I even found a sneaky little right hander to ourselves. Ketut snapped a bunch of photos and I will post a few up in tomorrow’s rundown when we get back from where ever we end up.
Weather wise today it’s been a nice sunny Sunday here on the holiday island. It was a bit of a chilly pre dawn but ended up just board shorts by 9.00am.
Tomorrow’s Surf Forecast is calling for more smallish and similar sized waves again with a small push towards the afternoon. Possible light and variable wind early before the Tradey kicks in mid morning.
That’s me for now but tune in to our baliwaves on facebook page for the early video report heads up.
