SO YOU WANNA LEARN TO SURF!! Learning to surf is NOT easy.. My advise to complete beginners..
Firstly, lessons are really cool these days and they give you a good taste and hopefully good advise. Your tutor might well recommend this exact board :- a classic 8 foot mini mal which has become the best option for most heavier people. Mini mal is short for Mini Malibu. Malibu's were the first surfboards made from these materials in the 1960s and perfected in the Los Angeles area of California and the best and most notable beach being Malibu. Mini mals do come in different sizes and are progressive enough to perfect all surfing manoeuvres. When you are ready to progress to a short board you just sharpen all those same moves. Age,weight, general fitness and how often you will be surfing need to be considered when deciding suitable size of board, and sometimes a LONGBOARD might be more appropriate to learn on. Our Mini mals are of the classic shape, and you should check out the photos of many boards being sold as mini mals but are nothing like the true specification. We hope this general info helps you to get into this exciting sport..Happy Surfing - Roger.
TO CLARIFY BOARD MATERIALS CONFUSION : This board is from traditional polyurethane foam , glassed with polyester resin. This has been the norm since the 60s.. Almost all top surfers ride this type of board from these materials.At Roger Cooper surfboards we do experiment with epoxy resin on polystyrene in a custom style. We always make a clear statement to customers if we are using these materials.Many boards are now from epoxy and other materials often made in a mould and mass produced.These do not ride like the custom boards and do not hold their price.So we hope you are now a little more clued up....
