It's every surfers dilemma, particularly when the waves are small or weak: You want to get in the water, you want to catch waves, you need the board to help you generate speed BUT you still want to be able to lay it on a rail and throw a little spray.

The trend for super fat shortboards has created a lot of fun shapes for surfers of all levels, but unless you're a WCT contender their fat tails can be hard to control properly rail to rail once you do get the board moving. The Maluku Flying Frog solves this problem by creating something of cut and shut; The front end is similar to a traditional egg or even minimal, but the tail is all rounded pin shortboard. You paddle in early and easy on that reassuring front end foam, pump through on your front foot on that wide, stable middle section and when you're ready weight the back foot and put the board on rail exactly as you would with a shortboard - the rounded pin tail gives control through the turn in gutless waves or hold AND control in larger surf

As a result the board lends itself perfectly to the surfer starting out and looking for an easy route to a decent shortboard surfing style, perhaps before stepping down to a proper shortboard - or the shortboarder looking to keep their rail work tight on days without enough grunt for their standard stick

With 5 fins provided including a large single fin centre fin you can mix things up even further. Enjoy the glide and smooth style of a single fin, add side bites for a bit more drive or ditch the centre fin and opt for the speed and hold on rail of a quad setup.

  • Thinking of getting the 6,4, if I would add a singel fin to the board witch should I get? Im 178cm/74kg.

    The board is supplied with a centre fin so we'd recommend using the one supplied with it a couple of times to see how you get on, then you can go for a different size or flex pattern depending on your experience.

  • The tail paint job in the photos is a bit messy. I'm assuming that those are just prototypes. So does the actual board have clean cut paint lines or is that a design feature? Thanks

    Hi, that is how it was designed.

  • Can this board be ridden as a single fin?

    Yes it can, you might want to go fro a bigger fin as the standard one supplied with the board is designed to be used in the 2+1 set up.

  • I choosed this board because Magicseaweed has recommend to me according my present skills and also about my needs on a board. Thanks again for this perfect conslulting!!! 😃 Unfortunately, the board was little damaged by the delivery service. Magigseaweed and me found a great solution to fix it and they send me some items which I wished for free from their store. Thanks again. Now I tried the board 7.2 (me 100kg) more than two weeks at the atlantic coast in France. I love this board! Really very easy to handle, easy to paddle in and good performance in all kind of waves even small waves and this with my 100kg. One star I have to take away because it seems that the material of this board (polyester) is a little bit more sensitive than other polyester boards. Maybe it is only my one, I don't know. However, I recommend this board and I would absolutely by it again.
