Micro Mal

07 Nov 2012

Carly's folks wanted something she could easily paddle into waves, and to have fun in the small stuff over summer.

Carley's shortboard is only 4'10", so over a meeting with Carly's dad we came up with the dimensions, 6'0" x 17 1/2" x 2 1/4", I bunged these dims into a existing 9'2" mal shape of mine on file and the computer shrunk in down, the proportions were just about there, a few tweaks and the Micro Mal was cut, shaped, painted and glassed up. This was a fun project, especially to see the joy on Carly's face surfing all day on her birthday.
