buy a board for 3 weeks in Bali - 2009/01/27 05:44 Hi,

I'm going to Bali the 16 of february for 3 weeks and it's too expensive too take my board in the plane (180€)
So I decided to buy one in Bali and sale it before leaving.

That's why I have some questions :
- what's the price for a used/new board in Bali ?
- do you have any address to find a board ?
- what kind of board do I need in Bali (Usually, I surf with a 6'1 Maurice Cole 18 1/2 x 2 5/6 and a 6'4 surftech Peter mel machine) ?
- do I have to come in Bali with my own fins ? my own leash ? my own surf bag ?
- do I need reef boots ? If yes, can I buy it in Bali ?
- do you have an address for my first night ?

Thanks a lot for yours answers.

Re:buy a board for 3 weeks in Bali - 2009/01/27 15:47 Hi, probably Feb is not the best month to come to bali, but if you rent bike you'll find some good waves on the East...

Hope this will help:

- what's the price for a used/new board in Bali ? - Depends on the size and manufacturer, but average price for a new board is about 200-300US$ so used noe should not cost more than 150-170$

- do you have any address to find a board ? - you'll find heaps of shops there, so no need to look for a particular shop. But I bought my two boards in Naruki shop and they repair your board for free if you break it during your holidays ))

- what kind of board do I need in Bali (Usually, I surf with a 6'1 Maurice Cole 18 1/2 x 2 5/6 and a 6'4 surftech Peter mel machine) ? - I wouldn't suggest anything here, it's absolutely up to you, and depends on the spot and conditions, but 6.4 would work anyway.

- do I have to come in Bali with my own fins ? my own leash ? my own surf bag ? - you can buy everything there, but if you feel comfortable with your own stuff bring it with ya.

- do I need reef boots ? If yes, can I buy it in Bali ? - reef boots is a good idea, but normally you don't really need them )) you can buy them there anyway.

- do you have an address for my first night ? - it depends on what you are looking for, cheap/avg/exp ? with aircon/hot water? where exactly you plan to stay (kuta? nusa dua or anywhere in peninsula?). check this out baliblog.com they have a very good description of places to stay.

Have a trip to Bali mate ))

Cheers

I'm going to fly with nothing in my backpack because the cost to travel with 1 board is 800 € with Korean Airline !!

Re:buy a board for 3 weeks in Bali - 2009/03/02 14:30 youre going during wet season so if you like rights then the season is in your favor. dont worry about having to find a board, you can find one anywhere. kuta has shops EVERYWHERE. prices are about the same as the US, maybe a little more expensive. might as well bring your own leash and fins, if u ride FCS. FCS is pretty dominant in bali, if you plan on buying a board there. the board is likely to have FCS. if u get lucky you can get a board with glassed on fins. dunno about selling the board though.. im sure you can sell it somewhere, at least to a shop or something. booties, you really don't need if youre used to reef and know how to handle on your board. but if you're used to the booties, ya you can just buy them there. oh my friend stayed in puspa bungalow in seminyak for about 10 USD a night and it was super nice. much quieter in that area if you dont like the party party drinky drinky. but the better surf during that time is on the other side of the island. hope this helps!
