Go there! Magic Board Center is what every surf area needs. I always struggle with the decision to travel with my board — and give the airlines way too much money to toss my gear around like a discus — or rent. Renting is a gamble because you could end up choosing between a slightly-dinged, yellowed 25 liter potato chip or a ceiling-high log with 3 decades of wax build up. Magic Board Center offers a wide variety of high quality, nearly brand-new boards to rent or buy that you can swap out depending on the conditions. But by far the best part of this shop are the people. They are super-friendly, highly-knowledgeable, and flexible — they even delivered a board to me in Sagres! Magic Board Center helped make my first surf experience in the Algarve a truly memorable one, for all the right reasons. Go there!
