For a fresh and funky surfing experience, you can’t go past our Mini Simmons-style Bean wooden surfboard. It catches waves like a longboard or Malibu thanks to the thick and wide design, but it’s also super manoeuvrable which gives it a distinctly skatey feel. Needless to say, if you’re looking for big fun in a small package, you can’t beat the Bean.
