Product description

Product Description

At this point I feel good about saying that I have educated myself about Mini Simmons Surfboards.

I started this book when I first recognized that these surfboards were special.

At first I just posted pics but then I realized that this board was part of something revolutionary.

It doesn’t happen often, you know, in this thruster world.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t always ride a Mini—I ride the board that is right for the wave, you dig?

Look, we all want the maximum experience from our surf session and at some point you realize that your thruster just won’t cut it.

Longboards you say, nah.

Ahhhh . . . the Mini gets you through those sections where the thruster would die without the 5 extra feet.

Longer waves equates to longer love.

BUT, and this is a big BUT for me, you still need enough design in the board to make it fly down the magic carpet.

And in my case damn it, I want to hit that lip and snap an off the top where appropriate . . . just because I am riding a Mini doesn’t mean I don’t want those things.


So, I am just saying, the right Mini Simmons surfboard can do these things . . . I know, because I shape them.

What doesn’t work for me . . .

too much nose
too much rocker
not enough rocker
too long
too short
too thick
too wide
Yea, I know you are saying, WTF.

But look, each board is right for the right reasons.

That is why I love this site, because who an I to say that the no-glass plywood Mini Simmons wouldn’t work?

In fact, I love it that this guy shaped it.

Or the Twinzer Mini—I fucking love twinzers.

But on a Mini, I don’t know?

So there it is, we all got our preferences.

Fuck the mags . . . the right board is the right board.

Go shape it.

Go ride it.
