MINI MALS BUYERS GUIDE
Mini-mal surfboards are know by many names and originally came from malibu surfboards and as they got smaller surfers started calling them Minimals for short. Mini malibu surfboards are a cut-down version of the traditional longboard and are designed to keep the ease and stability of a malibu surfboard but make them more manoeuvrable and responsive. They have a normal 3 fin setup without the larger central fin that a longboard has. These are perfect for learners as well as the experienced surfer wanting something fun to ride in fat or smaller surf. Generally minimal's are considered to be any fun surfboard under 9 foot. Surfboards Direct stock the most popular mini-mal designs and sizes. Our mini-mal boards feature both fibreglass and epoxy mini-mals.
OUR FUNBOARD SURFBOARD TEMPLATE
Our mini-mal surfboard template has been refined over the years to a proven design and it continues to get consistently great feedback. It has a fairly flat rocker under the chest to make paddling and wave catching easier with lift in the tail for turning and the nose to stop nosediving. The rails are full and forgivingmaking it easier to recover when over correcting. This is the best board n the market for learning to surf!

TYPES OF MINIMAL FOR SALE ONLINE
We stock a range of cheap funboards and minimals online. Depending on stock we have both epoxy and fibreglass minimals. Epoxy boards are considered lighter and do resist the small dings a little better but are harder to repair yourself.
ADVANTAGES OF A MINI MAL
Minimals are perfect for learners, larger surfers or anyone looking to turn those boring, small surf days into some fun. Like the longboard the Mini Malibu is easy to catch waves with but it is much lighter than a long board. They have a wider shape and are thicker than most surf boards, but offer good stability, easy paddling and are manoeuvrable
DISADVANTAGES OF A MINI MAL
There's no real disadvantage. The mini mal is an easy to ride option. If you want a lot more stability then move to a longboard and for any learner who wants to progress fast then maybe look to a larger fish surfboard.
