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

I attempted all elements with this board: shaping, which is reverse engineered, glass-on fins both foiled and fixed, venting, as well as glassing it myself with epoxy.
This is a 5'9" x 23"x 3" Mini Simmons and it flies. I can sit outside in the longboard zone and take off way early!
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?!..."
