This Mini Mal is a downsized version of the big "Malibu" type boards that ruled the early days of surfing. We fixed it up with modern rails and bottom profile. Its kind of a longboard that wants to be a shortboard - and it loves a nice medium-size swell.
A single fin works great but you can install three, four, or even five fins. Its as agile as a short board but you can get to the nose too. And the modern rail profile seals the deal.
Our instructions were first released in 2005 and have gone through many updates and revisions since then. As a registered buyer you'll get updates free for life. We guide you from selecting the wood to glassing the board and everything in between. There are 78 pages with over 200 illustrations currently. We know there are lots of sites showing wood surfboard builds but you wouldn't buy a new car and say "I'll just use the manual from my old car" would you? Our instructions were written for our plans and are the best in the industry.
