Micro Mal

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.

Check some more great pics taken on the day by a friend of the Shanahan's at stsurfimages.
