****AFTERNOON SURF UP DATE****
Hi crew and a very big thank you for dropping into the baliwaves.com (’99) for today’s 1 click run down on surfing and weather conditions here on the best value for surfing holiday dollar destination of Bali.
Before you read the surf report check out this video!
I think I told ya’s yesterday that there was a 99% chance of us scoring some bigger and better waves today, and I have to say it was a lot bigger and a lot better. I was up early way before dawn and when I stuck my head out the door at 4.00AM we had a blanket of stars over us and a light Easterly wind. But also knowing that we were in for a 0.2mtr Low tide @ 6.30AM there was no rush.
We actually hit the road for the East Coast around 8.30AM and our first stop was Padang Galak (Secrets..). Surfing conditions here were pretty ordinary with the wind having already swung to the SW. But still there were a few nice waves peeling off the left hand reef break in the head to over head range and with only 2 surfers in the water.
But my crew wasn’t that impressed and were keen to have a crack at Keramas a bit further up the coast. Our first glimpse of Keramas was showing very clean waves cranking through in the head to double head high plus plus. There were already 26 surfers in the water but the waves were super consistent.
I don’t *really know* were all the local pro’s would have been surfing but they weren’t where we were, just a couple of the local boys and the rest were basically from Japan. I also have to say that our Asian neighbors were surfing very well and by the look on there faces were having a ball. We hung out for two sessions and by 1.30PM the wind had increased out of the SSW and it was time to get back to Home Base.

Not sure where we are heading tomorrow but if you stay tuned to my twitter up dates you might get an idea, although it be to late to join us
Weather wise today it’s blue sky and pure holiday weather for the lucky bastards here in Bali.
Tidal info for today had us penned in for a 0.2mtr Low @ 6.30AM and then flooding back up for another 2.6mtr High around the 12.30PM mark.
Changing dollars to Rupiah on the streets of Kuta (Bemo Corner) — 1AU$=Rp8,660 — 1US$=Rp8,640 –
Swell forecast for this week is looking real good for the lucky buggers already here in Bali. We should see 2 to 3 new swells pretty much back to back over the next 7 days. But we can continue to expect the wind to be coming out of the W – SW quadrant for at least the best part of it.
