The Caffeine mini malibu (minimal) The Caffeine Mini Malibu (minimal) design is a great universal surfboard – The name ‘Caffeine’ because it gets you up and going like that first cup of Java in the morning. The caffeine has a wider nose than Le Colibri, to make the board even easier to paddle and to take off on. Minimals were originally fashioned after the Malibu Surfboard. It is similar to a longboard in shape but it’s a smaller version. The Caffeine Mini-mal is available in 7’0″ to 8’2″ length.
Full nose with narrow tail with loads of volume under the chest area that translates to easy paddling and early pop-ups, and the extra width helps the board to plane really quickly and glide effortlessly down the line. More versatile than a longboard and easier to get the hang of, than a short board.
Beginners through advanced.
Beginners will enjoy the stability and ease of paddling that the Caffeine offers, more advanced riders will enjoy added maneuverability, making sections and long gliding waves and moving around on the deck.
When ordering this board, please provide your sex, age, weight, height, fitness levels and surfing experience (in years), so that we can make sure that the board is a fit for you.
The Caffeine works in pretty much any condition ankle to overhead. Whitewash to open face waves.
Glassing available: Currently Howitzer boards are only available in PU and Polyester resin.
Standard glassing – good quality, optimal weight to strength for specific board’s intended use.
Heavy duty glassing – Heavier weight glassing, good for novices, or boards that see’s a lot of travel to surf.
Fin layouts available:
1+2 (single and sidebites) – enquire about additional costs involved with ordering a 1+2 before ordering.
Board colours and designs:
I design unique artwork for every board that leaves my shaping bay, and if you specify colours (1, 2 or three max) to be used in your design, I will use this to design artwork for your board. Alternatively, if you don’t specify anything, you get whatever I feel like doing in line with the Howitzer brand language. If you want a blank board, with only decals, please specify BLANK.
*Please note: All Howitzer boards are handshaped and not a single board is a stock item. Because of this boards take a little longer, but you get a truly unique board.
**Manufacturing time on boards are between 4 and 7 weeks from when you place your order, and will be available for collection as soon as it is ready, so please be patient.
