Buying/Renting Surfboard in North Sumatra?

« on: February 11 2012 19:02:00 »

I plan to go to North Sumatra next month and I was wondering if anyone knows where I can rent or buy a surfboard?

I would suggest taking one with you.  Few and far between for sale.  Substance is a shop in Padang but expensive.  Talk to other foreign surfers sometimes they sell an extra board, if you go to Bali you might have a better chance.  I know in Nias they hustle you if you look for a "new" board, by patching a broken deck together, poorly.  Just be cautious.

There are many arguments that will rage on for eternity. One is whether it is cheaper to buy rather than just  rent. Well, according to CNN, the most recent survey has similarly found that buying is more cheaper than renting. Same way with houses. Out of the top 100 real estate markets, it would be cheaper to rent than buy in only two of those locales. In fact, the two places that it would be cheaper to rent than to buy were Honolulu, Hawaii, and San Francisco, Calif.
