All rental boards and wetsuits are well-maintained and replaced on a regular basis. They are often in 'as good as new' condition.
Choosing the right surfboard is very important, especially for people who surf for the first time. A board that is too small will not have the necessary volume and stability to allow an average swimmer to paddle into the waves. Our Surf Taxi Penichesurf school and surf rentak in Peniche offers services to accomodate individual needs. We are happy to advise you on the right equipment adjusted to the prevailing surf conditions.
We offer rental boards in all shapes and sizes. For beginner students soft top surfboards between 7'0 an 9'0 ft (2-3m long) suit the best. The soft top boards are more stable and have a lot of volume. Their design allows easy paddling into the wave and they make the take off easier. Thanks to their soft cover on the top they make surfing a lot safer and prevent serious injuries.
In the intermediate and advanced surf course, you will get a hard top surfboard. More advanced surfer you are the shorter board you're going to use. We don'T only asses your level of sur. Body weight and height are important factors, too. Our Torqsurfboards work really well if you want to improve your surfing. They are sturdy and durable boards (compared to fiberglass). They are responsive and carry enogh volume to facilitate paddling and take offs. With these boards you can learn how to ride parallel along steeper waves and do basic maneuvers.
More experienced surfers choose their board according their taste, riding style or adapting to the particular wave and surf conditions. Some surfers prefer the comfortable longboard with its retro charm, others want their board to be as short as possible so they can perform radical turns, snaps or arial tricks in the critical sections of the wave. If you are a seasoned surfer in need for a proper surfboard while hanging out in Baleal or Peniche, hit us up! We have a nice selection of handshaped, custom surfboards, at a small additional cost.
Wetsuits are made out of neoprene, which is a synthetic rubber. The neoprene is then formed and sliced into sheets. There are different types of neoprene rubber but the neoprene used in surfing wetsuits are lightweight and are easily stretched. A wetsuit ensures that you don't get cold while surfing, even after spending hours in the water. The Atlantic Ocean in Portugal has temperatures of about 14-20°C all year round, which means no surfing in bikinis and boardshorts. During our courses our students wear 4/3 wetsuits with a thickness of 4mm on the body and 3mm on the arms and legs. They are thick enough to keep you warm but thin enough to not block you in your mobility while surfing. There's an other benefit of wetsuits, they can protect you from injuries and lower the impact of any hit you may get during surfing.
Our wetsuits are available in all sizes. If you visit Peniche in the mid or low season (from October to May) you might experience harsher weather conditions. If you are concerned about the cold, we have neoprene hoods and booties for you.
Our wetsuits are well maintained and replaced as needed. To keep them clean, the wetsuits are thoroughly rinsed after each surf session. After sessions wetsuits are air drying protected from direct sunlight. Our wetsuits are disinfected with proper products between surf courses to prevent infections or rushes.
