This standard shortboard is the intermediate to advanced surfer's 1st choice. Sensible dimensions for surfing local breaks in East Lothian, Pease Bay etc. Width and volume slightly increased to allow for extra rubber. 'V' to double concave or single to double, help it have a bit of squirt! Goes in all types of surf.
Standard Mini Malibu (Mini Mal) suits the majority of beginners, girls and up to medium sized guys around 12 stone. Forgiving bottom contours and nice and wide at the front to help catch waves, narrower tail than it's bigger brother, more stability and hold when it gets a bit bigger. You will be surprised how responsive it is!
Bigger Mini Mal template goes up to 8'4". Fuller outline really has a beautiful glide when in trim. Forgiving, perfect for the larger bigger/ taller and a beginners favourite.
Shaped for Georgie Watt from the Broch featured in April 2008 Wavelength at Pig Dog Thurso East.
A standard shortboard template but this has pinched rails and extra rocker in the nose for arial assaults.
Template can range up to 6'6 with a 4 inch rounded square tail. Bottom contours to WCT boards I've seen recently have this, i.e Jordy Smith & Neco Padaratz.
Glassed 6oz bottom and double 6oz on top with high gloss finish and standard artwork pin stripes top and bottom.
Longboards come in many variety of shapes. The two most popular are:
A concave in the nose can be put in but you'll need a big centre fin as there is normally a fair bit of tail lift to allow tighter turning arc.
Keel fish twinny with a 16 inch tail! Catches better than a long board, but watch out she's loose! Cuts through all that Pease Bay chop like a knife through butter. Good second board for a longboarder. Comes in high gloss finish with wooden glass on fins, add £30 for FCS set up.
