Will I be able to get a board in Manzanillo? New or used but in good condition.

Take one with you. I went without a board and it took me 4 weeks to find a board. most of the surf shops sell snapped repaired boards. If you can find a new one you will get it for a good price but good luck in finding one.

I'd definitley bring your own board, as you will get surf. I've seen patched together snapped boards at shops near the main spots, but i'd say your chances of getting the right goods at the right time are slim. I've gotten some of the best surf of my life in this area.....have fun and look out for the bandidos if you go to Tikla.

Bring a board if you can. You might be able to buy something in town, but it could be trash, or just cost you and arm and leg. Best bet is to get to the surf spots and buy one from someone there. Plenty of guys have extras and are sure to sell one to you. Good luck on your travels!

Thanks for the info.
I've decided to bring my board. Watch out for "travel embargos" on oversized baggage during the holidays. I've discovered that the only airline that is allowing surfboards is Alaska/Horizon...

Thanks again guys
