Airport reef – a boat ride to wave heaven

Airport Reef is a surf spot located beside of I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport’s runaway and you will see airplanes flying on top of you every 5 minutes or so. Not many places around the world have a back drop like this where you are so close to the runway of an airport whilst surfing incredible waves. The only way to reach this surf break is by hiring one of the local boats at Jimbaran or Kuta beach.

Today we went to Middle Reef, located between Airport left and Kuta Reef. Middle Reef is a fun left hander that can give you 70-100m rides in the right conditions. Unless the waves are small Middle Reef is a surf spot for more experienced surfers.
