Excludes Surfboards

5’10” Mandala Surfy Stub 2+1

When it comes to groovy surfboards on the internet it’s hard to beat the finely fluid foils of Mani Caro and his Mandala Surfboards label. Mani now lives in the same neighborhood that Surfy Surfy Surf Shop is located in. He also shapes at Moonlight Glassing, the factory where all the Surfy Surfy surfboards are made. So Mani is in the thick of it.
The Surfy Stub is a modified version of Mani’s regular Stubbie. In a late night collaboration over espresso and jazz we made some changes to his standard Stubbie (ok, actually it was over lunch at In ‘N Out Burger). We trimmed the ears off the round nose. We also thinned out the nose which you could see if we could ever figure out how to take a decent rocker profile photo. The bottom is performance built single to double vee instead of being hullish. The rails are crisp. The rocker is a nice blend paddle and performance.
We’ve made the Surfy Stub as tri-fins, quads and 2+1’s. The small side bites give you just enough extra off the bottom and in cutbacks where a single fin might over pivot.
For the photos we put in a 7.5″ L-Flex fin but your favorite 7″ fin will do. Some riders use the 7″ Bonzer fin and others the Greenough 4A.
This board is 5’10” x 20 3/8″ wide x 2 3/8″ thick. Opaque resin tint and gloss and polish. Available down at Surfy Surfy Surf Shop. Custom orders encouraged!

    Custom Mandalas via Surfy Surfy run about 8 weeks turnaround time. So you gotta plan ahead if you want to ride it on Super Bowl Sunday.
