The shape is a 5' 6" Mini Simmons. It's a planing hull design with parallel rails, twin keel fins, and it literally flies through the water.

All Eco Chamber kits are made from vertical grain poplar and consist of multiple stringers.

Simmons Eco Chamber DIY Kit

The stringers  are cut to exact specifications on our computer controlled CNC machine. 

The board is built by gluing either wood or discarded surfboards that have been cut into strips between the stringers.

Once the foam or wood is glued between all the stringers you simply sand until you touch the edge of the stringers and you have the perfect shape.

The stringers are cut to exact specifications on our computer controlled CNC machine.

The board is built by gluing either wood or discarded surfboards that have been cut into strips between the stringers.

Once the foam or wood is glued between all the stringers you simply sand until you touch the edge of the stringers and you have the perfect shape.

Like all our kits, the shape can be modified according to user preference.

Step One

Starting at the middle stringer you use wood or foam strips to build up the board one layer at a time.

The vertical dowels keep the stringers aligned.

The average width of the wood or foam between the stringers is 1 1/2".

Step Two

Layers are built up until all the right side stringers are glued in place.

Then you repeat the process on the left side and join the two sides.

This board is being built with balsa but an old surfboard cut into strips works great too.

Step Three

Shaping the blank is a snap since you simply plane and sand the board until you just reach the stringers.

Step Four

Then it's just a final sanding and you are ready to glass just like a regular surfboard or drop it off at your local glasser and open a beer.

Surfboard Leashes You Break It We Replace It in First Year

You should buy a leash closest to your board size. For example, if you have a 6'4 surfboard you need a 6' leash. All leashes are 7 mm thick except for the competition leashes which are lighter and 5.5 mm. Wave Tribe leashes come in the following flavors:

  • Mini | Retro | Shortboards: 5'6 - 6 - 6 comp (lighter for smaller waves or groms) - 7
  • Malibu | Longboard | Sigle Fins: 8 - 9 - 9 calf (leash strap attaches to calf for larger boards)
  • SUP Long Longboards: 10 - 10 coil (mostly for lake and open water boards)

Pioneer Day Boardbags - Fits One Surfboard

All boardbags have +2 inches, so if you buy a 6'6 boardbag, the real length is 6'8—thus a 6'6 board fit's perfectly in a 6'6 boardbag. All Pioneer bags have expandable fin gussets, so you can keep your fins on your board in the bag—or you can roll with glass-on fins.

Pionner Sizes:

  • Mini 5'2 - 5'6 - 5'8 - 5'10 - 6'2 | width 25
  • Fish 6' - 6'6 | width 25
  • Shortboard 6'6 - 7'6 | width 24
  • Longboard 8'6 - 9'6 - 10' | width 28

All bags have interior pockets for finds, leash and wax. The thicker your board the more width is needed to help accomodate proper sizing—all our bags fit industry standards. Our 8'6, 9'6 and 10' bags have fin slots and round noses. Pioneer bags also have an exterior pocket and zip all the way to the nose.

Global Travel Bags - Fits Two Surfboards

All Global boardbags have +2 inches, so if you buy a 6'2 boardbag, the real length is 6'4—thus you have a bit of room to play. Though I would not advise that you overstuff the Global Travel Bag, it's better to go up a size and have a extra room for your gear. 

Global Travel Bag sizes:

  • Mini Simmons 6'2 - 6'7 - 7'6 | width 26"
  • Shortboard 6' - 6'7 - 7'6 | width 22"
  • Longboard 8'6 - 9'6 | width 25"

Travel boardbags are 6' inches deep to accomodate two boards—though you can travel with one in these bags without a problem—there is an internal strap to tie boards together. Travel boardbags have two padded boards seperators and two pockets for your gear. Travel boardbags also have 13mm + 13mm of extra padding in the nose and tail.

Boardbag Material & Hardware - All Bags

Side A of the bag is made from a strong density Rugged Eco Hemp exterior which is one tough fiber and naturally built to last with high impact padding protection with Rebound Foam Dynamics including open-to-nose technology.

Side B is the reflective (rental-car-roof-side) made from Reflective Energy Shield for "Cooler Surfboard Safeguard" protecting your surfboard from the sun's harmful rays made from an alloy-steel mesh weave.

All Sides are guarded by our Japanese Never-Rust-or-Break Nickel Platted Zippers streamline zipper trails and our trademarked Easy Flow Zip System.
