The Mamo is not only the most technically advanced design that I make but it is also the most loved hybrid shortboard replacement that I make. Compared to your normal milkman style board, the Mamo will be faster, looser, glide better and paddle much better but the real benefit to your surfing will be the forgiving nature of the design. Basically you have a board that minimizes rider errors better so you can consistently surf your best without sacrificing performance. You no longer have to be perfectly in tune to be surfing your best. Typically ordered 3 inches shorter and one inch wider than your normal shortboard.
