If you arrive on Bali by plane, at daylight, just look down as you approach the landing strip : Airport's is the waves breaking South of the landing strip (righthander) and North of it (lefthander).

Airport's right and left need quite a big swell to break. When you need to take the 7' gun elsewhere, come check here with your 6'4''.
You can take a taxi or park the car in Jimbaran village without problem, walk on the beach to the fishing harbor (hard to call it really a harbor, but...) and ask a captain to get you out there. The righthander wave (South of the airport) makes more tubes but the lefthander gets bigger. This is a good alternative for surfing Kuta overcrowded waves.
Dry season only (May - September), more likely to break from June to August.
Pretty cool, rarely crowded : excellent !
After the surf, you can go back to Jimbaran and go eat/drink something at Uluwatu Café, just meters away on that beach : choose your fish straight from their aquarium.
Keep an eye on the planes around, just in case...

Airport Lefts - I surfed out airport left some years ago. Dont bother paddling its too far. There are two peaks on the wave, dont take the inside one!! The day I surfed it was about 4-5ft and really good long waves. A great option when Kuta reef has 400 people out.
