I just registered here because I stumbled on the forum while googling for advice on mini-mals and you guys seem to be a helpful and knowledgeable bunch.
I would like to know if a 7' x 20 1/2" x 2 5/6" mini-mal would be big enough for me?
I am 6ft, fit and weigh 80kg. I haven't been in the water for 7 years cos I moved to Germany which is why I'd like to give the mini-mal a go now that I'm back home (I'd like to ease back into it without too much paddling stress since I'm now in my mid 30s haha). Before I went overseas I was probably intermediate level I guess and rode a 6'6" thruster which was my one and only board that I also learnt on. I remember thinking at the time that it would probably have been much easier to start on something bigger. So, since I will be completely out of form and kooking it up for a while, could anyone please give me some advice on how suitable a 7 ft mini-mal would be for my size?
