you cannot make a board do, what it was not shaped to be! -BG
"rain drop" mini simmons..  ok , proven again, took it out for the 3rd time today!! this time in some steep racey takeoffs... good ol torrance beach! had a blast!! the board works amazing!! extremely fast from the start, i find myself cutting back a lot which isn't a bad thing. I'm still getting a feel for what i can do on it, i went to hit the lip today , set my feet , and my back foot went off the tail, hahah , i forgot i was on a 5'5" ... I've read some threads of people saying it doesn't do well backside, well mine works great backside, super responsive. now, it does glide like a longboard, and the turning takes a little getting used too!! but my theory is, u can't make a board do what its not meant to do!!  this is for catching waves and long sweeping turns!!! i actually have a few thrusters to shape but I'm just too stokd with the way this thing rides it will be a while till I'm ready to ride anything else. o wait, i started another simmons inspired "micro bus" at 5'2" with a pulled in tail with slight bump!!

the new 5'5" mini simmons inspired "rain drop" works really well! super easy to paddle into waves, and extremely fast! nice easy round turning similar to a longboard would do. next time i will go even shorter!! ;)

cedar fins

i started experimenting with wood fins! finding out what different grains do when foiling, its interesting. her i foiled a set of keel cedar fins for the simmons inspired "rain drop"
