Surf Shops in Porto?« on: June 19 2008 10:06:00 »
I want to save money and not bring my bodyboard with me on the plane. Anyone know of a good surfshop in Porto that sells quality bodyboards???

Go to Invert Shop in Espinho. Best bodyboard shop in Portugal and Espinho is the first place you'll want to surf if you're travelling south from Porto. The shop is owned by Ricardo Faustino - one of the Portugal's best bodyboarders. Toby.

Thanks for the info Toby. I was reading about Espinho. Found that it said that the water is a little less than clean? Have you come across this problem there?

I´m sure it´s not too bad - certainly not as bad as California can get ;) Up around Porto is a bit nasty but Espinho is where things start to get better. Chat to the locals and they´ll give you the latest updates. If you want I can try and give you a hook up with one of the local crew. Toby.

Hi, I'm going to Porto tomorrow morning and will stay until noon 5. of Nov. I wanna go out ripping in the swell that hits tomorrow! 4-5m waves! :D
It will be my first time in Porto and Portugal so I don't know were the shops for board rental are, or were the locals hang out.
If you are in for some action tomorrow call or text me on 0034 66 454 23 76.
Hope to see you on the beach!

I'm in porto in june. Are there some good waves then? or is it better not to bring my own board to Porto and just rent one over there if conditions are good?
Does Porto breaks regularly in summer?
