Water

Type:
Shallow, Medium wave
Hazards:
Reefs, Rocks
Quality:
Crystal clear
Best Tide:
Tide independent

Inside the lagoon you can kiteboard with every tide. The lower the tide the less choppy and flatter the water will be. On the famous surf reef, Kuta Reef, just 500m out, the best tides are medium to high tides. With low tides there are some rocks (nearly) exposed, so watch out for that. Kuta Reef is a lefthander, just like Middles and Airports Left which are all on the same stretch of reef. Depending on the tides and wind direction the quality of the wave changes. But keep in mind these are still Bali style waves!
