****AFTERNOON SURF UP DATE****
Howdy friends and thanks for taking the time out to tune into the baliwaves.com (’99) for the most comprehensive news on today’s surfing and weather conditions from here on every sane surfers favorite surfing holiday destination of Bali. (not too mention the photos, right).
Ok ok, so like I mentioned in yesterdays “twitter reports” we had plans for today. Plans to hunt down the best waves in Bali, and that’s what we did. I had the boys up well before dawn and on the road by 4.30AM, heading for Balian up on the north west coast of the island.
Arriving just as the moon was setting and the sun rising to see head to well over head lines stacked up and clean as a whistle. The boys didn’t waste time getting out there as I had already tuned them that possibly every man and his dog will start to roll up within the hour. Around a dozen surfers were already scattered through the left and right handers, with plenty of waves for everyone. There was even quite a few waves going through unridden.
We hung around for two sessions at Balian with snacks and coffee in between at the always welcoming “Ayu’s Warung & Home stay” It wasn’t until around 10.30AM that the gloss was taken off the waves when the wind switched around to the West. By this time all the car parks were full and at least 50+ surfers in the water, game over.
Tidal info for today had us penned in for a solid 2.4mtr High @ 11.00AM and then she’ll be bottoming out around the 5.00PM mark with a reef exposing 0.2mtr’s.
Weather wise the good stuff is continuing, more blue sky and sunshine with a top temperature of at least 32 degree’s Celsius.
I’ll try and catch the dollar exchange rates for ya’s in my next up date.
Swell wise it’s not looking real good for waves tomorrow and seeing as my current guests want to head out into town tonight we might call a lay day on Monday and wait for the new swell that should be arriving on Tuesday. But I’ll still be posting the odd twitter up date so get signed up ASAP.
