- I didnt get a chance to go back to bali to get a board. Now, I'm already in Lagos. I was trying to buy online through UK shop, but unfortunately, they cant deliver it to Nigeria. I'll send you a PM.

- Hi, it's better to buy the board at your place and to bring it here! Didn't find a surf shop here yet...
