Cost of new Surfboard/shapers

« on: April 24 2014 01:04:00 »

I'm going to be moving from New Zealand to Lisbon probably near Carcavelos and I was hopping somebody might be able to inform me the costs of new boards or recommend a good shaper.

Hi !
That depends of the kind of board you want but usually goes around the 400€ and 600€
in the area of Carcavelos theres a very good shaper / brand Look for- Polen surf boards
in a more classic kind of board try the - Wavegliders.
All the best and good waves

Thanks for the info, I've been surfing a 5'10  Hayden Unit Shifter, which took a bit  of adjusting to, especial coming from a 6'3 but its a great board when its clean. I would like to go for another epoxy board given the choice and prefer using local shapers.

It will be no problem at all. You will find some brands from local shapers in the area, Polen surf boars it's one of the best not only in Carcavelos but also in the country but theres more good ones.
Enjoy your staying at Portugal and the surf
