There's waves around and plenty crowded pretty much everywhere down here. West wind is really starting to hit hard.

Went out in the 35 degree heat and scored a couple of zippy little lefts that just kept holding up in the stiff offshore. Too hot to stay out long. I was actually going to wear my surf cap but couldn't find it.

Where'd ya surf on the trip?
Had 9 days on Lembongan with family for NY so surfed all the usuals there depending on tides and conditions. Then had another 6 days in Canggu where I pretty much surfed the left at Echo beach exclusively. Was going to head up to Balian to see a mate but he said that the rivermouth had burst and the water was very sketchy.

Echo Beach left? If so it was the same as the last time I surfed it a couple of years ago. Fairly easy take off if you get into them early followed by a bit of a barrel section and then it walls through towards the beach. You get a few nice double ups on the lower tide which are nice.
I was astounded at the lack of crowds though. At 3ft it usually had about 10 our which is very manageable by GC standards but as soon as it got bigger there were fuck all people out there. There didn’t seem to be too many Aussies about which I put down to fear about the volcano blowing again and you can’t get insurance at the moment for extra accommodation etc. The locals I know said that there was about 30% occupancy which looked about right, looking at the amount of people around.
As I said, i’ll definitely go back in the wet season again.

Wind is less of an issue as you go West. It tends to be more side shore. Someone else over there said it was way down as far as people goes.

The people I spoke to said it is about 30% occupancy because of the volcano. You can’t get insurance that includes volcanic eruption cover.
And no salty I only had one onshore surf and that was the last day. Other than that I had 3-5 foot waves every day.

Easy 30 knot southerly this morning down south. Tucked into a south corner and did battle with the elements after being goaded into going surfing with a couple of idiot mates. Building swell, a messy 3-4ft and pretty soft. Faces were surprisingly clean if you could find one. Water temp has increased again with the southerly flow, i'm guessing around 23 deg today, maybe more. With the constant wind spray we lasted about an hour before our eyes started to bleed.

super fun 4-6' shit flying everywhere, but warm. Felt like the North Shore in a 30 knot NE trade wind.

Queenscliff, windy as hell, not as big as what NC surfed but 3-4 foot. Hard to get into them but just offshore enough to be super smooth when you got onto one.

Not really crowded either. Heaps of waves to go around.

whoa, strange surf, full on 20-plus-knot southerly, some deep swell pulse from the ENE, a fair bit of scattered SE windswell, and an occasional six wave set from the SE too.

All only adding up to 5' or so but every now and then something a bit larger.

Guessing the ENE bit is coming off the front edge of the winds on the eastern side of this low, the rubbish is just form the coastal winds, and the SE sets are from the bottom edge of the low as it begins to develop.

i feel a deep enmity towards surfers when i'm not surfing. i hate all their bullshit about where'd you surf today and where was the wind coming from and what was the swell period and wave size and how about your surfboard dimensions and volume and all that crap. they just rabbit on and on. they are the biggest wankers. god i'm glad i'm not one of them when i'm not surfing.
