Designed for Waves 1 – 4ft. The Mermaid is Maurice’s mainstay performance design for small waves. A board designed to replace anything fishy. In tandem with an ATM a surfer can ride tiny waves on the Mermaid and jump back onto the ATM when the waves get bigger. As with the transition between Metro and Protow, between Mermaid and ATM there are significant design differences but enough similarities to make the switch non traumatic and the transition last a couple of waves not days. This design has won surfers many world tour events in places like Hossegor, Brazil, and Aussie beach break locations. The Mermaid is approximately 1 to 2 inches shorter than and 1/4 to 1/2 an inch wider than your standard short board. The wider tail helps carry you over the flatter sections of the wave and the extra curve in the Mermaid tail keeps it loose and snappy.
