Has anyone done a thorough surf trip through Indo? I am looking to go for an extended period of time maybe a month or two. What type of budget would you suggest? What is the best time of year for weather/waves? Im not looking for triple overhead get pounded into the reef surf. Overhead goodness with nice walls and barrels will do! Thanks ahead of time

Not sure about surf conditions etc, but I do know about budget. Most surfing locations I've checked out are cheap. Accommodation is rarely more than 100,000 rupiah and meals usually around 50,000 per day. Add on top of that drinks and transport and you'd be looking at somewhere in the region of 200-250k per day dependent on your drink, how often you move around, what sort of food you like to eat and if you want a Western toilet or not.
Of course, if you wanted to go cheaper, it is possible but you forgo alcohol, eat nasi goreng 3x a day and get really crumby digs. Costs are similar in Bali as they are elsewhere.
