Steve was stoked to have tested the Simmons surfboard in 2-3ft clean in Bude!

So this is a pic of the first rider with the Simmons board now let its story begin!

 

 Message from Steve the shaper, It was a real joy to shape this board, taken from a mini mal blank, retro fish one was not wide enough in the tail!!!. low slight rocker to keep speed, slight roll in nose, and large area concave scoop in tail.
The concave in tail reduced the volume in rear of board, but still nice and floaty around hip area glassed wood fins play a big part in the performance of this board, with the wide tail and twin keel fins. It looks right with decent sized puppies glassed on it.
Mango yellow and orange resin tint, to keep looking fresh and clean.
When I rode this ,reminded me of a 5 / 7 fish i had in the early 70s. have not ridden anything this short in years. found it easier to just pop into the wave, and a couple of paddle strokes, rather than paddle early just feels smooth and controlled when ridden.

Enjoy Steve..
