I am Australian (currently live in Aust.) but my wife and I have a place in the north of Portugal. I have never been shopping for a board there but what I have seen (not much of a selection and very high price compared to Aust. but there is alot more call for boards here) leaves a bit to be desired.
Most the boards I have seen made portugal look like the shapers are still learning (ie. a bit like an ironing board). The "surf shops" also look like a fashion show with little to know selection for surfing equipment.
