The Diamond Minimal borrows a lot of attributes from smaller hybrid boards – more than just the shape, the complex MPH bottom contours enable the board to plane very quickly, and the added volume in the nose gained from the extra width, means that this board paddles like a longboard.
The tail is narrowed to a Diamond tail with channels and a rolled V – helping the board to roll side to side and to turn like a smaller board, whilst maintaining speed by forcing water through the fins.
Look past the unconventional shape and you just found your new minimal.
The Diamond Mini Malibu is ideally ridden in waves from ankle high to 4 foot.
Glassing options: 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 – Optimized strength, but a bit heavier than standard glassing.
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.
