The Mini Malibu comes in the in a 6’8 to 7’8 range, with the 7’2 / 7’4” being the popular sizes for the medium build surfer. As with every board in the JackBrowne range, this is the one board that bridges the gap between a long board and a shortboard err-ing on the side of really buoyant and wave catching machines. The idea behind this board is to shorten the length of a longboard so that it can be surfed off the tail, but can be ridden as a small wave catching nose rider. This board adds the fun factor on max and the stoke stays on high. The thruster fin set-up keeps the board stable but loose off the tail and on the rail.
Everybody wants a long board in their quiver, however the cumbersome factors of owning a 9footer has its hurdles ….enter the Mini Malibu as the answer to these problems.
