Mini malibu?

« on: June 08 2005 08:06:00 »

Hi guys!

I want to start surfing in Florida and I was wondering if it is a good choice to buy a mini malibu? Some people say longboards are better...
How much do I have to pay for a mini malibu?
Would be 150$-200$ enough?

G'day, a mini malibu is a shorter longboard. Also called a funshap or a hybrid. You'll probably spend closer to $250-$300 US for one that is good enough to surf. Cheaper ones will be full of dings that will take on water. Go to a surfshop or check out CRAIGS]
Good luck and happy surfing
