Kuta as you may know is the most popular of the Bali beaches and is famous for it's surfing and nightlife. We did rent a surf board and were taught how to surf for an hour which cost 50,000 rupiah (5 dollars). There are hundreds of surf boards for rent on the beach and pretty much any other watersport is available here.
We went for the biggest surf board so we looked pretty stupid. The bigger the board the easier to use, and we still sucked.
Equipment: You'll get the board and a wet top thing..... i don't know much about surfing.
Kuta has many challenging breaks for surfers. Even on a hot, hot noon, you will see lots of surfers at Kuta Beach. Lots of surfboards are for rental at the beach. If you wish, you can get your own in the shops in Jalan Legian.
Equipment: You do not need to bring your surfboards or surf gears. You can rent/hire them at the beach or from the nearby shops. There are also many shops selling surf gear and boards at Jalan Legian.
Pretend to speak a DIFFERENT LANGUAGE! That will confuse 'em. This was our FAVORITE sport. Either out walking them and/or confusing them by speaking pretend Tongan!
