The Pintail Mini was originally intended to be a mid-length or "mini" version of its predecessor the Pintail Lightweight, capturing the transition from longboard to midrange. Similar to its cousin, the Maui Foil, it had to have modern elements while keeping to its original intention. Since the Maui Foil was intended to be more of a gunnier egg shape that works great in a little power, Matt wanted to design a board that was more all-around. Using the Maui Foil as his starting point, he added width with a fuller nose and tail while keeping the signature hard pintail and down rail nose. The bottom has a very slight roll to flat in the middle to a generous amount of double concave spiral vee back to flat out the tail for release in the wave. The modest continuous rocker with a little extra kick in the nose and tail along with the 2+1 fin configuration give the rider plenty of fin options and versatility. This model's true magic is that it rides just as remarkable shorter (6'0-7'0) as a mid-range (7'0'-8'6). If you want a board that catches waves with ease and turns on a dime, this is it!ent with a roll entry into single concave into a generous amount of vee running out the tail. The rails are a bit harder than some of the midlengths in our line (ie the alpha pin) so the board tends to feel faster down the line with the ability to generate speed nicely but still maintains easy trimming capabilities. The board is designed for easy paddling and wave entry and ULTRA SMOOTH turns.The board feels like it looks. Ultra smooth. I recommend this board to anyone looking to up their wave count on an all around smooth riding single fin egg. - Matt Calvani
