hi bro..jakarta is a busy metro city.its hard to get boards there,except brand new in the fancy surf shops in malls. nearest spots there are cimaja in pelabuhan ratu,3hrs driving south,or pasauran,carita,2hrs driving west. when exactly are coming to the city?you can always rent a van in jakarta,but u gotta have a local friend to show u around,its way easier to get all things done..fell free to email me,i'd do my best to help you guys..
