Here's my opinion:
#1: $1000/month would make the trip comfortable. It can be done for less. Traveling expenses and surf camps can drive-up costs(and beer).
#2: You can get a 60 day visa if apply at the Indo consulate in Canada before you leave.
#3: Start at the Kuta beach breaks for learning/experience. There will be no shortage of advice on where to go after that.
#4: If going for 1 month+ and you have a board you're comfortable with, bring that. There are lots of places to rent and buy in Kuta, less so elsewhere.
#5: Books: Indo Surf and Lingo, Lonely Planet-Bali.
