  1. Boards Puerto Rico

    EH!

    I've asked you dead beats for board advise in puerto rico multiple times and you all continue to leave me standing here with my **** in my hand, so please allow me to reiterate:

    1) probably going to fly my 5-9 down there
    2) I want a longboard so I can get in these waist highs and walk it like a pro, do any of these surf shops sell them down there for like 100 bucks or something?

    Listen to this man.

    As for your surfboard, you're best off cutting it in half, putting it in your suitcase & then re-assembling with the help of the friendly locals in Rincon.

    The problem with your question was the $100 price point.

    NÚstor Ramirez makes good Surfboards, but you won't get one for $100

    Muniz surfboards are good too

    If you're travelling through San Juan, you might find something used at la ocho surfshop http://www.la8surf.com/ but again, $100 is tough.

    The idea of buying an old rental from Desecheo surf shop might be the closest to $100 you can get as far as a real surfboard.

    But at that price point, you may just have to grab a Wavestorm at the local Costco.

    Oh, and btw, stop that or you'll go blind.

    gotcha, as for quality of longboard i dont really care (like at all), im probably just gonna find someplace i can rent for like 20 bones, my only concern is if i get the notion to start bombing double overheads and nosedive a 9 ftr right into the reef and break it but **** it, ive got mulah.

    sick story:
    bought boards for like 30 bucks american when i went to south africa a few years ago (for some reason PRs more expensive). wasnt a longboard, didnt need one since i could rent one for like 6 bucks whenever i wanted one was some waterlogged, abused short board some aggressive wannabe surfer had all tricked out with his stickers and **** on the bottom lol. end of story

    Im going down to Isabela, PR in february but only for a week. I looked it up and made a call to the surf shop on the beach there to see how rentals worked. Has anybody done that before and if so how did it work for you?

    Another problem may be you haven't said what part of PR you are going to. They are assuming Rincon but things are different all over the island. Don't pay em any mind. Where will you be?
