Cortez Fun Veneer Surfboard package 7ft 6 - Mahogany
Buying a surfboard package makes good sense. It's more expencive to buy the individual components and we'll ensure the bag, leash and wax are suitable for the surfboard you've chosen.
When I first started surfing back in the late 1980's I made the mistake of buying a surfboard that looked cool but was far too short and narrow and totally unsuitable for a beginner. This resulted in some fruitless (and comical) sessions where I spent most of the time trying to paddle, falling of and generally having a miserable time. This almost led me to give it all up and buy some golf clubs (a close shave), but fortunately I took some advice and bought myself a 7ft 6 mini mal and never looked back. I can still remember the first session on the 7'6 and paddling into my first "green" unbroken wave.
The classic looking Cortez Fun Veneer looks like it should cost twice as much and takes it's shape from the much maligned, but proven template of the Mini Mal or to give it it's full name the Mini Malibu. It's mid-length, wide template and generous volume are all designed to help you paddle and catch waves and jump to your feet without unsettling the board. The Three Phase Epoxy construction makes the board tough but not bulletproof, super light, easy to carry and manoeuvre in the water. A composite stringer runs the length of the board for strength and the Cortez boards all come with a quality FCS fin system.
Boardshop offers a "trade-in" facility where we'll consider taking your old surfboard (within reason!) and setting it off against a new Cortez. An easy process; all you have to do is email us some quality photos and an honest description of the board including damage and repairs and well get back to you with a provisional valuation and info on how to proceed. Just email email@example.com or give us a ring on 0044 (0) 1243 674250 we love talking surfing!

The first thing I did notice however, was that the pattern on the board was not what I was expecting, I had a quick look on the website and the pattern I received did not match any that were shown there. This was not a huge problem as it was still quite similar and I wasn't buying the board for its looks.
Being all keen to get the board ready for Saturday I then decided to wax it. At this point I realized I had only been supplied with a top coat wax. Whilst this is enough to get me going it would probably lead me to having to strip it all off at a later date to put a base coat on first, then the top coat. Again not a huge problem, but if I had known this was going to be the case I would have ordered some base coat at the same time to save on extra p&p charges just for £1 worth of base coat. Luckily a friend was already down in Croyde with some base coat so my Dawn patrol surf on Saturday morning involved waking him up to use his wax followed by an extra 20 minutes patiently waxing the board before I could get in the sea. Once I did get in the water the board was great, I was able to ride a whole variety of waves as the conditions steadily changed throughout the weekend and I would definatly recommened this board to any other beginner surfers.

I can only compare the Cortez to that one; and it is more boyant and certainly glides better/faster even!
The Cortez certainly has good looks in its favour too.
The wax/Leash/bag inclusive deal meant that I could take delivery and surf next day - for me this was ideal provided that the delivery came when promised. the bag was not a 'great' bag, in that it didn't have a zip on the single fin opening, it did not have any fin pocket either and the long strap was not detachable but these are not deal breakers. The bag was 9' - I would have an preferred 8' bag for an for an 8' board.
Good service. Promised next day, and came next day. Faultless. Packaging a trifle skimpy than what I would have expected - bubble wrap and shrink wrap - I would have liked to see it boxed in addition so attention would be drawn to potential damage.
I would recommend the product/deal/ and service
