Hi, I'm not really sure what to suggest about boards - we took our own, so it wasn't really a problem for us.
Re accommodation, I'd recommend the cabanas - but ask for one close to the cable when you're booking. They are the closest, and while they're pretty basic, they still have everything you need. Bed, tv, aircon, bathroom. We've stayed in the cabanas and the villas, and the villas are nicer, but not nice enough to justify the extra money. The only real benefit is a small fridge, but if you're at the cable all day you'll be getting cold drinks there anyway.
