More mini's...

I just finished another mini-Simmons (MS) shape with a little different tail design. The typical MS tailblock is quite wide, which helps to get this short shape up and planing, but makes it a little difficult to turn. The idea behind the “notch tail” is to lessen the resistance to water flow in the tail as the board rolls over on the rail for turning. Same basic idea as swallow tails and fish tails. For those interested, the dims on this shape are 5’8” 19-3/4” x 22-3/4” x 19-3/4”  2-3/4".  Fin set up is twin Futures boxes for traditional keels, mod keels or standard twins.

We have a couple of these mini-Simmons shapes as demos at the shop. Contact me if you’d like to take one for a test drive.
