5'9" Mini-Simmons

This Mini-Simmons design was requested by Matt, the guy who helped organize the 2010 Half Moon Bay Workshop...

I was shocked at how effortlessly this board caught waves and made flat sections.

Turning on the other hand was a bit tricky, but who needs to turn anyways, right?!..."
