Forecast Issued Tuesday, 4 September 2018

Welcome to the Indonesian late season. On the one hand, it’s fair to say the prospect of any major, winter-scale groundswells like the episodes seen in late July and early August now look unlikely. On the other, there’s still plenty of SW and SSW swell inbound under light to moderate tradewinds throughout early September. So while you may not be scouring Bali for a floatation vest and an 8ft gun, your short-board will undoubtedly be put to good use over the coming two or three weeks. Although a short-term lull in wave-activity will see small-scale surf prevailing at 2ft or so across the region on Wednesday and Thursday, as of Friday it’s once again game on the first in a series of a new SSW groundswells begins to fill in.
