Cortez Woodcraft Lumberjack is an all round Mini Mal with 1.5mm real paulownia wood veneer finish. The Lumberjack has features that allows you to come down in size from the average Mini Mal found online or in any surf shops. The average Mini Mal surfboard will be 7’6’’ to 8’.0’’ and in the UK are generally directed at the entry surfer market. Therefore, kept basic, all about catching waves but not aimed at any performance.
The Lumberjack changes this a little, by relaxing the rocker somewhat, and increasing the volume in order to keep the float of a larger surfboard. In order as well to replace the length lost the Lumberjack has a large bull type rounded nose like a longboard surfboard would have, and a large square tail increasing the float and paddling area and keeping the surfboard stable. The large tail will enable early pivot making the board want to change direction and to go around any sections whilst continuing to keep the surfboard stable and hooked into the wave.
The surfboard due to its volume will sit high in the water and enable easy paddling and ease of getting into waves, the nose is flipped enough to help in not nose diving like a flatter surfboard would on late take off
The bottom contours of the surfboard flat under the shoulders and releasing through a subtle rolled V in the tail enable manoeuvring in most conditions.
