Great Board Selection, Super Nice and Helpful Staff. We are surfers from the United States and were in Lagos just for the weekend in March, 2018. The guy in the shop was super nice and helpful when we came in. He had a bunch of different shapes and sizes of all boards including some really really nice brands such as Rusty. The rental process was super easy and cheap. Wetsuits were quality too. All around great experience, highly recommend Magic Board Center!

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!
Had a surfboard dilemma wasn’t sure what to get. Had a great chat with the guys at Magic Board Center, really knowledgeable and helpful. Tested a 6’2″ Rusty Smoothie and absolutely loved it. A perfect way to buy a board! Defiantly recommend these guys and they have some fantastic boards to rent and buy.
Just back from the beach and had so many goods wave on my new board!
One of the most experienced surf shops I’ve ever been, lovely people, fair prices and an unbelievable knowledge about surf!
Awesome service!!! all the boards are brand new and realy cool. it’s a nice concept you can rent the boards you can buy them and you can test them. I rented a Muffin top from rusty and I’m realy happy with it. All the brands in the shop are from very good quality.
If your searching for a surf rental or shop you should go to Magic board center, it’s awesome and the people are amazing. I’m very happy that I found this board shop/rental because it’s hard to find a good surf rental that give you so much information. Great shop!!!
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!
I found these guys in Lagos. They were super friendly and were more than happy to help me out. Letting me know the places to surf. These guys have a sick range of sticks. I’ll be back and I’ll coming to see you again.
Thanks for everything legends!!
Lovely staff, friendly, very helpful and knowledgeable. Great value for money rented a brand new Lost V3 Rocket for €25/day. Good location for shop, plenty parking out the front. Definitely recommended and would use again.
We visited Lagos in October 2017 and found Magic board center on our second day. We got excellent service on renting the surfboards + gear and always the best tips where to go. One day my sister and brother took a surf lesson since they are beginners. The surf instructor was professional and helpful. Hope to come back soon! Greetings from Lapland and from the arctic surfers! 🙂
This is an amazing place! Love the idea and how you guys bring it to life! They offer an incredible selection of boards combined with a lot of knowledge. Thanks for the amazing week, I finally had the chance to try some really great boards and got a much better idea about what I would like to surf more in the future!
Best I Could have asked for. These guys in Lagos are the best! Absolutely love them, they have made our trip unforgettable. The service they provide is way over 5star, all the equipments are outstanding, boards are very well looked after, wetsuits are perfect. Extremely helpful people with big big heart 🙂
No need to haul your boards around anymore. Best concept EVER! I am never ever flying my boards to Portugal again. This was cheaper, and i got to test some (brand new) different models. Fantastic experience…
This unique chance to test out high end and brand new boards and get so much insights from the owner… It was a pleasure and I will highly recommend you.
Thanks Rik for helping me to find my perfect board!
Best rental performance surf boards I have ever seen in a trip. An excelente option if you are thinking of not bringging a board for your trip or even buying one here and taking it back home and save half of the airfare. They have lots of quality brands, Rusty, Chili, Al Merrick, Tomo, etc. Great service and really helpful on where and when to surf each spot. They even put a new deck in my rental board for a couple of days rent. Thanks Rik!
