SMIK Hipster Twin Mini Mal
« on: February 09, 2019, 08:07:14 AM »
Last October I worked with Scotty at SMIK on a
9'2" x 30.5" x 3.75" x 122 liter Hipster Twin Mini
Mal.

He just sent me pic. He is delivering some team boards to Hawaii and will ship mine Air Cargo to Boston.

Geezer froth activated!

Will obviously do a review after I get that Bad Boy used to chilly waters!

Wait Biggie, a twin-fin mini mal?  Isn't that a contradiction?  I think I'm going to want one! ;D

Normally I don't care for longboards, but that's one I could get into riding. I wish they were sold here.

Well it is here! Scotty went to Oahu to deliver boards to some local lads, surf in the Apptour event, and ship some boards to frothing customers in the US.

Mahalos to the boize at Blue Planet for doing an incredible wrap and pack.

When I went to Logan to grab it, the outer two piece box was in tatters. Did not have a good feeling.

When I bought it home the outer box separated and had fun chasing the two pieces down the street.

Underneath was an amazing wrap by the boize at Blue Planet; multiple layers of bubble pack, cardboard on the rails, and nose and tail protection. Under that was the original factory SMIK wrap.

Ding Lords were appeased. I was expecting the worse given the condition of the outer disaster box.

Am an olde fahrte and old school. Tradition insists that you must go for a session immediately on a new board!

Wax 'em up and hit it geezer. Went to Second Beach and grovelled in knee high onshore pigslop.

Board is awesome, even got up on the schnozz in that unrideable junk.

WhatsSup took a pic which I will post. Only if the resizing gods are happy.

Supposed to have decent surf. Will report and maybe even post some pics!

Pray for clean conditions.

Beautiful shot Cleve. That is sharp looking. Love the color. I could easily go for that board.
