Bring something bigger for Uluwatu and Padang if you intend on surfing that on sizeable days.

And yes there's a fair few good boards to be bought 2nd hand.
Bloody bagus, have fun

Its up to these things, maybe more-
1- on big days, do you like to surf bigger days at more swell exposed locations or head to more fickle/ less swell locations (often more perfect and hollow)
2- like retro or alternative tech boards (a single fin, fish, widowmaker, bonzer or even modern tech firewire etc) might liven up your surfs on whatever days the board suits. (its often empty on smaller one to three foot days that a fish will revell in the lined up conditions.)
In other words- want have a parko quiver (all HP  thrusters etc)or a dave rasta quiver -all different shapes
Or  have two of your most used and suitable board, (maybe a 6'0)
and a 6'5 for bigger days, its all up to you.
Id say three boards max for a few weeks, four to five for a few months.
