    Mini Mal Surfboard FAQs

    Q: What makes a mini mal surfboard different from a longboard or shortboard?

    A: A mini mal surfboard is the sweet spot between a longboard and a shortboard. It's generally smaller than a longboard, making it easier to manoeuvre and easy to carry. However, it's larger than a shortboard, its volume offering balance and stability, all rolled into one. So, if you're a surfer looking for that next right board for your collection, a mini mal should definitely be on your radar.

    Q: Can I use a mini mal surfboard in any wave conditions?

    A: Yes, a mini mal surfboard is designed to be versatile and can handle a wide range of wave conditions. Its stable design and excellent paddle power make it great for small waves, but they're also built tough, so even when the waves get bigger, these boards can handle it. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced surfer, you'll find that a minimal surfboard can adapt to your surfing needs.

    Q: What size mini mal should I get?

    A: Our Tempest Mini Mals come in a range of sizes to suit every surfer, no matter what level you're at.

    Q: What is the connection between a mini mal and a malibu?

    A mini mal is essentially smaller versions of the longboard known as the malibu board, which is how this board got its name - mini malibu. Mini Mal surfboards have the same thick rails that begin to mellow out towards the tail of the board, as well as thinned-out tails.
