Bali Hai Surf Guide

Bali Hai in Huahine is an exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf. Summer offers the best conditions for surfing. Offshore winds blow from the east southeast. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the north. A reef breaks right. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for locals,coral and sharks.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
