Overview:

Not just your average Mini Mal, this high performance shape
has the turning ability of a short board, but still offers the buoyancy and wave-catching abilities of a longboard. It is ideal for intermediate surfers, as well as beginners who have improved and need to step down from a longboard.

Board Specs:

The bottom deck features a double concave throughout the board, as well as a standard squash tail with a low entry rocker for trimming and enough tail rocker to stay high performance.

Ideal Wave Size:

Designed to be ridden in ankle to over-head surf by beginner to intermediate riders, suitable for all levels.

Key Features:

  1. Easy to paddle
  2. Stable yet performance orientated
  3. Suits all around conditions
  4. Flex Carbon Construction
  5. From as light as 3.5kg

Fins:

  • Features a Thruster set up
  • FCS II fin boxes with conversion kit
  • Comes without fins

Tech & Features

THE CORE

Flex Carbon is built from a stringer-less traditional Polyurethane foam (PU) core. Starboard has played around with a variety of different densities of foam depending on the desired weight, flex and compressional stability. By having a traditional PU foam core, we have been able to match the flex components of a traditional build by removing the stringer and perfecting the use of different fiber patterns.

CONSTRUCTION

In order to find the key to achieving a flex pattern that is equal and in some instances better than that seen in a normal PU Board, our development team underwent a rigorous testing process to find the perfect combination of fiber orientations, carbon strengths and outer/inner densities. With the introduction of this unique technology comes the launch of three progressive shapes: Black Magic, Flying V and Anaconda.
