Mini mals have become a very popular shape for surfboards in recent years and are commonly used to help beginners get into the sport - their rounded template helps to spread the volume evenly across the board. This coupled with a rounded nose and rounded or squash tail helps the beginner to catch more waves.
Durable, affordable and reliable, today's modern mini mals are the result of testing and shape development and each one is precision made by hand. As surfing has grown in popularity in the 21st century, more people taking the plunge have enjoyed the benefits of a mini mal.
Forgiving in many of the wave conditions found on our coastlines, it’s the type of board you can keep for your surfing career – from the initial learning process, to keeping it around for some fun.
