Take the 6'9". Fly unless you have alot more time than money. I'm partial to Lombok as that's where my wife's from. Transition season dry to wet can make for alot of possibilities on Lombok. Lakey on Sumbawa is always crowded now and the waves on west Sumbawa are pretty spread apart and transportation is hard to find. If you're interested I can connect you with people and places at Kuta Lombok.

Take the mini gun, you wont need the gun. Sumbawa is always busy, Lombock is better, though even some of the waves there are getting busier. Some great waves near Kuta, but desert point if half day drive to west on dirt track and sand, so you'll need a 4X4. Also, desert point always busy, maybe 50 guys everytime it breaks as guys speed boat over from Bali. Though still worth a look as lots of other waves in the area and noone seems to surf anything but Desert.  In fact that whole southern coast of lombock full of waves but the roads are terrible and people do get carjacked.
