Airport Left

Airport left is as the name says in front of the airport runway in Tuban, about 1.5 kms south of Kuta Reef and about 1km offshore. Once again, the go is to hire a local boat to get yourself out there, that way you can save your energy for the waves.

Airport left can also get crowded, and is a favourite with Japanese surfers. It’s not a super hollow or powerful wave and the waves only run for about 50-70 mtrs.

    Surf airport lefts every year in August September as they are just out the front of our hotel. Best at 4 to 5 foot and provide good shacks on the right tide. Vibe in the water has always been good and only seen one punch up in the water in 20 years and the seppo deserved it. Bali still an amazing place.
