should I buy a board in Bali?

I live in Japan and have been surfing for about 10 years but to date I have never owned  a board.  Currently I get around 2-3 opportunities a year to surf for a few days, at which point I rent a board.  So now thinking, maybe it is time to make the investment....should I buy a board while on vacation in Bali?  Boards are expensive here in Japan, so maybe the opportunity should not be overlooked...  are boards generally inexpensive in Bali?  I have not been there before so I really do not know what would be a reasonable price for the region.  Thanks for any advice on this one...

RE: should I buy a board in Bali?

boards in bali arent that cheap, more expensive to buy then in aus where i live. But not sure on prices in japan, but if u only surf 2-3 times a year i dont think u need to buy a brand new board anyways, just pick up a 2nd hand one....

Hi. Were going to Bali in a couple of weeks. I want to get a surfboard while I’m over there. I was hoping u would be able to give me some prices and locations of surfboard shops or stalls in Bali. Either cheap new boards or second hand boards. Thanks.

Buying a 2nd hand board in Bali is really easy. Getting a really good deal for it is a little bit harder. Don't worry about finding surfshops, they're all over Kuta.. Just have a walk on Poppies 1 or 2 and you'll find plenty. You can expect to pay from 2 millions Rp to 3.5 million Rp for a board in good shape. They do fantastic repair job though, so check it carefully b4 buying it !
Good luck !

RE: should I buy a board in Bali?

I can take care of you! I live in Japan and have a shaper in Ventura, CA (Todd Proctor) who makes custom boards for a very reasonable price specifically for people who live in Japan. Go to www.proctorsurf.com and check it out. Or you can email me at surferjapan@gmail.com
I can help you out easily too. A board should be made for you and your surfing ability...not a board that is made or shaped for someone else...it wont ride like you want it too.
