Go here: this place has perfect reviews for a reason. The owners are extremely helpful, patient, knowledgeable, fair, and kind. Amazing selection of high quality boards and very cool rent-before-you buy system. I’m an experienced surfer with a lot of time spent at board stores around the world, and this is by far one of the best. They went above and beyond to help me… I almost feel guilty! I’ll be back. Thank you, Rik and Ksenia!

Very professional and helpful surf shop. Was happy to find this place since the personal really helped me a lot in finding the best spot, with transport and everything. They seemed very friendly and professional, and being in the business because their love surfing, not being after the money.
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 🙂
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!
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!
Easily best surf board rental/shop in Lagos. All boards are practically new, amazing selection beginner-advanced, great prices and staff really helpful. Highly recommend!!!
Great opportunity to rent / buy a high quality surfboard for a good price (if you want to avoid the airplane baggage charges). Rik, the owner, is a super friendly guy that really knows everything about surfboards and will give you the best consultation. Go there and enjoy 😉
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! 🙂
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!
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!
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!!!
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.
Best condition boards in even better service conditions. I traveled as part of a group of 8 friends to Lagos by car to check out Magic Board Center. We were absolute amateur-surfers but now have a high standard concerning surfboard shops! In and out in 15min, going out with some good boards attached to our cars (with soft racks for the car free from rent), the best surfing spot and some extra advice!
If you’re surfing in the Algarve (by extension the whole of Portugal) rent your boards here, they’re better for a lesser price.
