COASTALWATCH | BALI, INDO SURF FORECAST 

Surf Forecast issued 3.00pm, Tuesday, 3 October, 2017

It’s been business as usual across the island’s wide-ranging surfable coastline throughout late September and early October as mostly small-scale SSW swell rolls in under light and variable to light SE winds. Despite the impending eruption of Bali’s largest volcano, Mount Agung, this status quo will continue into the middle of October – or at least until the volcano does blow – which vulcanologists continue to say could be anytime soon. Putting the prospect of fire and brimstone raining down from above aside, the short-term surf forecast sees groundhog days of small surf under light winds – and assuming you keep your expectations in check this all sounds like pretty good fun across the most exposed Indonesian breaks. It looks like it won’t be until Tuesday/ Wednesday next week that we see a more robust SSW groundswell pushing surf-heights into the 3 to 6ft range – again under light and variable late season winds.
