  • We met the guys from @magicboardcenter who helped us out getting the sickest surfboards of the whole portuguese south coast, so that we could crush every single wave on our private lagoon.
    If you ever come here you should check out their try-rent-buy board concept, just brilliant!

  • 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!!!
