I use my girls 7'6" miniMal when I am feeling like having a lazy session and just want to catch a bunch of waves. It's good fun and I can still do floaters, cut backs, etc.
They all have thier place.
I've always though of mini mals as being like cros dressers, can't really make up their minds what they want to be, so end up being in the middle, and ending as something that doesn't really make much sense.

2nd day the waves were a bit bigger shoulder height and didn't present much of a problem. pretty sure i could handle it ok in bigger again.
feel much more connected to the wave on it... like i know earlier everything thats goin on around me. wasn't exactly noseriding or anything.. but i can turn left now which was very hit and miss before. truly cruising!
can't wait till next week!
prob be a long time before i go back to the shorty.
