After many years of making the Maui Foil and the PTLW Mini, I wanted to blend the two boards to create an even more versatile mid-length shape. We've had a lot of success with the Pintail Mini because of the relaxed rocker, fuller outline and well-balanced thickness and foil, while the Maui Foil has been a bigger wave alternative egg. So I wanted to expand on the Maui Foil's timeless curves by widening the center width as well as the nose and tail and incorporating the Pintail Mini's rocker and foil. The Foil features a rounder pin tail which will allow for more freedom and release especially on top turns and draw smooth seamless lines. The result is an eye-pleasing, very versatile refined egg shape that can be more tailored to the surfers needs.
