7'9" Malibu

7'9" Malibu


Smooth Wave Machines

Perhaps the most versatile of the DURA-TEC range, the Malibu is an excellent combination of longboard stability and manoeuvrability, with just enough length to make it easy to control.
Its user-friendly design provides ample floatation to catch all types of waves while the performance shape enables ‘down-the-line’ fun for first timers to advanced surfers. The Malibu gives lightweights and smaller surfers an easy to carry, durable and stable “big-board” feel for starting out. However, heavier or bigger surfers will enjoy the mid-range length and proven performance for their transition to shorter boards and bigger surf conditions. Our original 7’9” Malibu gained a reputation for versatility, long-lasting and affordable surfboard.

One of the most versatile boards of the range, particularly for those looking for a combination of longboard stability and mini-mal surfing. The Natural Surf 2 gives lightweight riders a durable and stable “longboard” feel for easily catching many waves. Heavier surfers will enjoy the mid-range length for their transition to shorter boards, short-board manoeuvers and bigger surf conditions.

The 7’9 Natural Surf, story of a legend :

In 1994, BIC SPORT revolutionized the surf industry with the first ever industrially produced surfboard: the 7’9 Natural Surf. Until then, surfing had been reserved to a limited number of people. This game changer made the fun of surfing accessible to everyone with this easy to ride shape by Gérard DABBADIE, 1975 European Champion.

After 23 years of production in our French factory in Vannes (Brittany), several graphics changes and close to 100 000 boards sold, this shape remains an icon for any surfer.

Rugged & Ultra-Durable, Authentic Boardsport Feel and Performance

DURA-TEC combines an ultra-durable polyethylene outer shell (like a kayak but lighter weight) with a full polyurethane foam core (like that found in traditional surfboards). These materials are thermoformed in steel molds to ensure consistent and accurate reproduction of the original shape. Proven and long lasting with great performance, we’ve been making recreational wind and surf boards like this since the 1980’s and many are still on the water today!

Key Features :
Used exclusively for BIC SURF, for surfboards that are built to last.
Closed cell PU inner core for structural integrity and board stiffness.
Tracer & Wave Pro : Carbon-Innegra sandwich for minimum weight, competitive stiffness and improved durability.
Strong blow-moulded outer PE skin for ding resistance, long-term durability.
Molded external fin inserts - no penetrations through outer shell and maximum strength.
