Today is perhaps the smallest we have ever seen Uluwatu. Hardly a ripple which is very unusual. As it was hot and sunny we wanted to get wet anyway, so headed to the nearby break of Nyang Nyang on the south coast. As you can see from the photos, it was a great day for groms. Also some head high waves to be had and clean conditions, and this is a quality wave, so not too bad a day. Swell is forecast to stay small for another week, which is highly unsusal.
Some spots on west coast of Bali today were flat, and even Uluwatu was barely rideable. Fortunately we are strategically located to easily get to all 3 coasts of the Bukit and Nyang Nyang is just 10 minutes from us. The south coast of the Bukit was the place to be to get head high waves, with the occasional overhead set. Very light winds and clean conditions. There is a new road to Nyang Nyang that makes access much easier. As you can see from the drone photo there is also an old plane parked on the cliff by a Russian businessman. This has caused some local controversy.
Very small surf today on the west coast, so we decided to cruise down to Nyang Nyang, which is always bigger than Uluwatu. During the dry season, Nyang Nyang is very wind exposed to the trade winds, but today the wind was very light. Set waves were well overhead and quite powerful. Makes a change to go right after surfing mostly lefts all season. We are now in the wet season, and from now until March next year, we will be varying our surfs between west, east and south coasts of Bukit.
