Surfboard Purchase in Portugal and Spain« on: June 11 2005 04:06:00 »
A mate and I are going to Portugal and Northern Spain during July. It is going to cost us $400 each to take our boards with us from oz. I was wondering whether it was cheaper to purchase a board over there and then sell it when we leave or hire a board? We are going to be there just under a month and on a tight budget. Whats the average price of a new or second hand board within Portugal? Thanks

Hey there Karin,
I'm going to Lagos in a few weeks. I'm looking for a place to rent suits and boards if possible. Could you send me some more information on prices and material?
Also, we're tempted in buying, do you know prices or perhaps links to sites of shapers, shops?
Please mail me if you've got some info.

Thanks for your replies,
Its been helpful. Yeah Karin, that would be great we're flying in to Madrid early July and then travelling over to lisbon, if you could help us hook up some boards that would be helpful. If you want could you pls give us your address of your shop or camp on the Lisbon coast and maybe a way of contacting you. What is your average price for a secondhand surfboard between 6'2-6'4? Thanks
