Perfect place for local knowledge and top quality boards to hire! Amazing place and amazing people. I didn’t want to bring my board from the UK, wanted to travel light. There are NSPs and bics to hire but there also a great selection of shortboards too – perfect! No need to take the gamble of surfboards getting smashed up en route. Sound advice about which board would be best for the conditions – just got out from a great morning surf – stoked! Will be spreading the word in Cornwall cheers!!! Dan

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! 🙂
I’m gonna be honest with u all, this surfshop is the best. First encounter was to repair my board, excellent service, contact over WhatsApp, transparent and good prices. The estimated costs to fix my board were €80,- but at the end it turns out to be only €65, and they fixed the front and the back of the board. Then…
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!!!
Best surfboard rental in Lagos! Great selection of boards, very nice people, and a lot of specialist knowledge. Are you looking for the right board? Come here!
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

Absolutely amazing owner who spent almost an hour explaining us all the ins and outs of surf board shaping. A walking encyclopedia with a down-to-earth approach to board selection.
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.
