On the search for a copy of my old board, Magic Board Center advised me perfectly. After a test ride I couldn’t resist to buy it straight away.
Saw it, surfed it, bought it. Unique way to buy your new board @magicboardcenter
I went there to buy my first surfboard. Very helpful crew with a lot of knowledge. Also try before you buy is a great option. Great place nothing more to say.
Magic Experience. For sure the best board rental shop I ever visited. Boards in top condition, presented in a very nice way. A huge variety of boards. But that‘s not all, we got a profound advice about which board to choose and a lot of other interesting information about surfing, and not at least a very detailed analysis of the current swell and it‘s effects to all the beaches around of Lagos. These guys care not only about their boards, but about their customers as well. Thanks!
The service offered by Rik is absolutely brilliant and new. I was able to test every Surfboard in the shop and find out what’s the best for me.
With Rik’s technical and very professional help it’s so easy to find your new magic carpet.
I took me 3 hours to get out of this Profesional place, they know so much about every surf board. It’s not only repairs…. You can see that is there passion. It is not commercial its really about the details of the boards and their knowledge. I never had so much advise on any place. Thanks
Highly recommended. Very friendly shop owners with sound knowledge. You can change boards as often as u like and get a decent advice. You notice, that they know what they are talking about.
We booked a three day surftraining for our daughter Mira (15) from Magic Board Center. As parents we were looking for a place we could trust a 100%. We are very happy about our decision. Everybody was very friendly, very thoughtful (the right skill level, safety) and well organised. Most important: Each day Mira came back with a great smile on her face. And she told us she wants to come back next year. Thank you!
We rented a mini mal for a week for the kids as I flew out with my own shortboard – it was brand new with bag, no hassle and excellent friendly service- they have a really great selection of short boards and I could have swapped the minimal for a different board every day for the same price which I wished I had done- Next time I won’t bother taking my own board but rent from them instead -I’ve already recommended them to some mates!
We’ve used Magic Board Center many times on multiple trips to Lagos for board hire, surf lessons and now ding repair. They are extremely friendly, efficient and helpful. They advise on where to go given wind, tide & swell conditions and ability of surfers. They have an excellent range of boards to rent and buy. Wetsuits are good quality. If you rent boards they include extremely good quality FCS softracks. I head some ding repairs done recently and they were absolutely top quality and very reasonably priced.
Magic Board Center is awesome for so many reasons: gorgeous shop, a rental inventory that you can view online, amazing people, and even better, if you reach out to them by phone, email, or message, they are so responsive, helpful, and understand the type of board/shape/volume needed for waves. 10 stars!!!
I went there for a consultation on which board I should buy for the next step. So I brought my old board, told them what my problems are and where I would like to evolve to. They showed me 3 boards with a clear recommendation for one of them. To be more sure, I took 2 of the boards for testing. Next day I returned and bought exactly the board, that was recommended. What shall I say? They are pros 🙂
I’m absolutely satisfied with the board, for it helps me a lot with my wave count a the agility in the wave I was looking for. Thanks again for the consultation!
Magic Rental Place for Surf Boards – highly recommended! We rented two perfect and new surfboards including a soft-rack for our car for more than a week. All in all: Excellent and super-speedy service with a big smile and very good advice. High-tech quality boards in every level. We received a nice plan about tides and interesting tips & trics to get the best out of our surfing trip. My girlfriend and me were really impressed and we’ll definitely come back again! greetings from germany, thanks Rik, Cheers
Great service, very helpful and point us in the right direction on where to surf.
They have the best surf rentals I have ever used in my life, almost brand new!
