Cheaper to buy a 2nd hand board...

« on: May 11 2009 03:05:00 »

I'm travelling to the Western Algarve - staying near Zavial Beach - in the first 2 weeks of June, but just discovered that Jet2 won't carry my board because it's longer than teir 6ft limit. So now instead of paying the £50 return carriage for it I've got to rent one. I got quotes for a full 2 week rental and the cheapest is 210 Euros - I figure it would be cheaper to buy a 2nd hand board and then sell it back to a shop at the end of the trip. Does anyone know if there are shops in the Sagres or Lagos area where I'll be able to pick up a used board and then sell it back to them when I leave?
