-Able to catch broken waves with even paddling
-Perfect for smaller messy or clean days
-Practically indestructable great for travelling as it's so solid
-Great for first timers (I caught my first wave on it)
- Great for kids as not too large but floaty enough to learn on (if you know what I mean)!!
-OK for the slightly larger surfers (well not over 15 stones I'd say as my dad can sink it!! lol.
-Gives you a smooth ride
-Stable for first timer shaky arms when pushing up on feet
-Your feet don't need to be in the right place so again excellent for beginners
-Not so good in the larger waves as duck diving is practically impossible!
-Hard to turn/carve to board
-You need to lay right on the board (head inline with the bic sign) other wise you go head over heels
So I got this Bic Mini Mal board handed down to me when I wanted to start surfing from my brother, he learned to surf it and I was up on my feet on the first time I was in the water. I knew that it would be easiest for me to start in the white water. I just held onto the rails until the wave picked me up. I started by riding it like a bodyboard, then on my knees before I struggled to my feet. I know that when my brother brought the board the shop assistant said that it was the best for money and for a beginner. In my own view whilst I was learning to surf I battered it around but even now it looks new. This is the board to get when learning to surf, there's no point in getting a small shortboard as you'll stand no chance in even catching a wave. Good luck surfing and most of all have FUN!!!
