Ive got a bic mini-mal, it was all i could afford at the time, i needed a new crash helmet. I think that my saftey comes well before a better board, ive had no problems with it, it will do for now...........
I've never surfed a full on Bic longboard, but I have surfed their mini mals a few times, and I think they're fun, and not bad to be honest. There are better boards, but if it was all I had, I wouldn't complain.
I am a beginner and have brought a bic mini mal on the grounds I wanted a nice easy board to learn on!! I nearly got one one of them foam jobbies I had lessons on but I felt there wouldnt be any advancement on them!! Once I get the nack of more fluid surfing on my bic, then I will definatley be investing in a smaller hand crafted board although my local spot is Joss Bay in Kent (UK) which isnt exactly the most glamerous surfing spot and therefore no surf shops but great for learners like me!!
