No need to present the 7'3 Mini Malibu, a shape signed by Gerard Dabbadie, the most famous French shaper in the world.
The 7'3 Mini Malibu is the little sister of the 7'9 Mini Malibu, which made surfing popular and accessible all across the globe. This board is for all types of surfers, whether they are beginners or experienced.
It is the ideal board for beginners who want to acquire their first surfboard. The 7'3 is used by many surf schools around the world for its learning qualities and durability.
Beginners will appreciate its stability and more experienced surfers will love its scalability.
Its relatively wide outline, combined with a very tight rocker, offers the right characteristics for a smooth learning curve. Easy to paddle, it will be easy to stand up.
Although it is bulky with its 46L, it is still very scalable. So you can use the board in more powerful waves and start attacking your first maneuvers.
Over the seasons, the 7'3" Malibu has earned a reputation for versatility, durability and price point.
We recommend it for surfers between 45 and 70kgs.
It's the perfect choice for a first surfboard, easy to wear and durable.
Heavier surfers will appreciate its length and performance before moving on to more demanding shortboards.
