how to go to Padang Padang from Kuta« on: May 30 2011 10:05:00 »
Hi! Im dropping by for a few days in Kuta, Bali (it will be my first time there) this July. Im hoping to go to Padang Padang for a day of surfing. is it better to rent a board in kuta then bring it to Padang Padang or do they have surfboard rentals available there? how long is the motorcycle ride from kuta to padang padang? a taxi(w/c they say is 30mins)? other means of transportation available? Please help! thanks!

Just hire a bemo or taxi (they will find you). takes about half an hour but can take much longer depending on where you are in Kuta and traffic...only recommend hiring a motor bike yourself if your a real good rider and spent time on indo roads.
Not sure about boards been a while since ive been down there, expect you can, if you pay the right price anythings possible in Indo, otherwise try board shops down poppies 2 or at the beach, but wouldn't expect anything you would actually want to ride at Padang Padang.
BTW. Padang Padang is a heavy fickle beast needing a solid swell to get going, you would be very lucky to score it if only in Bali for a few days.

To go by taxi will cost you roughly 15-20 USD. (i don't like driving motorbikes in Bali, it's too weird)
Yes it's better to rent from Kuta, I am not sure you can find boards in Padang Padang but in Uluwatu they are overpriced.
If you want to ride Padang Padang with something else than a softboard (that's what happened to me in Bingin), check rentasufrboard.com.

option 1: rent a motorbike with a rack. cost not more than USD 7/day
option 2: ask for a transfer to padang. probably cost not more than USD 25.
definitely rent surfboard in kuta, more options and bettter price.
