Surf Shops in Kuta« on: July 17 2006 09:07:00 »
First timing it in Bali for July. I understand there are a lot of surf board shops etc do they stock JS and Merrick. Has anypne tried S - Core Merrick, or tuff lite in the heavy indo surf.

I havent tried the light stuff but with the bigger powerfull waves you need a bit of weight and studiness to cut through the offshore wind ridges/chop you get. the tuff light stuff seems to get thrown around a bit. there are heaps of surf shops in kuta but the boards arent any cheaper than back home

Thanks. Im not convinced by the Tufflite - S Core revoloution but I am tempted because you can ride a ahorter stick. Has anyone used both ?
