Mini Mals & Funboards

The Mini Mal or funboard is the type of surfboard good for progressing a surfers tecnique whilst still allowing more manuverability than a standard longboard. the mini mal shape normally refers to boards over 7'6 with a traditional longboard shape, allowing for stable take offs and nose riding potential. A funboard is traditionally a longer board with sharp rails and tail allowing an individual to get used to the basics of take off and pumping without all the flash! A 7'6 funboard is ideal for the surfer graduating from a 9'6 or foam board, or a fast tracked beginner!!

 

  • With the Modern Highline we examined what novice-to-intermediate surfers need in a surfboard to help them get as much actual surfing experience as possible. To become a better surfer, catching waves and increasing your confidence is the key, so we designed this board to be very buoyant (easy to paddle), stable (easy to get to your feet), and easy to control (smooth turns & go where you want on a wave). Essentially, we built this board to re-define the first steps in surfing so people develop their skills quicker and maximise the enjoyment they get from riding waves.

    OUTLINE: The outline is the key to the Highline’s amazing stability. We basically took the middle section of a longboard, then tapered the nose to a semi-point and added a nice curved square tail, and by reducing the overall board length you maintain easier side-to-side turning.

    ROCKER: Considered flat, the low rocker means this board paddles very quickly onto waves, and will maintain its speed once you’re up and riding. In this case flat equals flow, and less effort required from the rider to get the board up and going.

    CONTOURS: Forward concave helps channel water efficiently across the flatter rocker, particularly when paddling and taking off. The back half of the board has a raised vee with double concave to offset the width, and allow for easier transitions from one rail to the other when performing turns.

    FOIL: There’s lots of volume along the full length of the foil, but enough taper through the nose to avoid that ‘boat-like’ feel. The rails are full, but still soft which makes them forgiving as you glide across the face and connect your turns together.

    PERFORMANCE: This model can be ridden shorter due to the extra width and higher volumes, which is a big advantage for beginner and intermediate surfers developing their turning skills. For better surfers, gear down into cruise mode before riding the Highline. It has a large sweet spot and offers a very fluid ride, especially in smaller, soft running beach and point waves.

  • Half longboard, half cruiser; the Modern Love Child offers limitless options in the water. This surfboard paddles exceptionally well, has plenty of turning ability off the tail, and will adapt as the conditions and your approach changes.

    Built using our XB (Epoxy Bamboo) construction which produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that’s particularly strong on the deck, and has beautiful aesthetic appeal.

    OUTLINE: The longboard outline up front creates a huge stable zone under the front foot and chest, which is great for catching waves early and riding forward towards the nose. The tapered pintail keeps the board maneuverable and adds control in bigger, steeper waves.

    ROCKER: The low rocker is designed to glide effortlessly into waves and maintain down-the-line speed and acceleration. Subtle lift in the tail rocker promotes smooth gliding turns on the face.

    CONTOURS: Concave in the nose creates lift when standing forward. Pronounced vee-double concave starts under the front foot and runs all the way out the back maintaining ample maneuverability on an otherwise wide, higher volume board.

    FIN: Three different fin configurations offer 3 types of performance. The single and 2 + 1 set-ups deliver a free-flowing ride while promoting longer lines. The quad offers a faster ride with tighter turning capacity.

  • This is a funboard on steroids! For this concept we’ve used the overall plan shape of a minimal/funboard and boosted the width and volume along the length and foil. The result is a manageable, easy turning length with the paddle and float of a much larger board.

    For improving surfers, this offers stability, paddle power and wave catching ability. For heavier surfers you’ll find the float you need in a much shorter length.  The single to double concave means you can still put this board on a rail.

    With 5 Futures fin boxes, the BigBoy 23 can be ridden as Quad or Thruster.

  • The M2 has all the elements of a performance longboard in a much more compact package.

     

    The center of the board is fairly straight and flat – this is the paddle and trim area, the functional section. At the front there’s a wide longboard nose with a single concave underneath – perfect for nose rides. From the mid-point back the template narrows into a round tail with a double concave vee underneath making this mini malibu super maneuverable off the tail.

     

    A true Mini Malibu for all surfers in waves of 1ft to double overhead. The 4/3 set-up allows ultimate fin versatility.
