Awayco — The Netflix of Surfboards

Awayco — The Netflix of Surfboards

Whenever I travel abroad is always the same: choose which surfboards to take, at the risk of not being the most suitable for the waves that I’ll find; pack the board bag and pray that airlines don’t charge transportation at a gold price; reach the destination and pray to the saints that they are intact and not damaged during the flight. All weariness and nerves!

But, I recently discovered a new surfboard rental service that will revolutionize the market. A real Netflix of the borrowed boards — the Awayco!

This is a site where, for a monthly fee, we can rent as many boards as we want, as many times as we want. The company works with local surf shops that place large quivers at the customer’s disposal.

For now, Awayco covers some of the world’s best-known surf destinations: California, Australia, Bali, Mexico, and Portugal. An offer that will undoubtedly widen in the future.

Awayco not only saves headaches for traveling surfers and upcoming surf trips, but it can be also an excellent choice if you’re thinking of trading or buying a new surfboard. You can do some board tests before you head out and spend several hundred dollars.

It was with this premise that I discovered Awayco and decided to go and test some new board measurements.

Online registration takes only a few minutes, and the company offers five days of free trial. Next, I found the store closer to me — in this case, Magic Quiver, in Ericeira — to choose the board I wanted, set dates for use, and pick it up. The process couldn’t be more straightforward.

And there I went, with a “new” board, to test something different in the waves of Ericeira and Santa Cruz. It was not my magic board, but it helped me understand what I’m looking for and set my next purchase.

    This is great! I didn’t even know that such services existed. It is much convenient in some cases to rent a surfboard than figuring a way to carry your own.
