Designed for SPEED - low rocker and a straighter rail line makes this board fast fast fast. The wide double diamond tail provides the means for the board to use its speed keeping it loose through turns.

The chopped diamond nose and forward volume allows you to ride this board short. The straight rail line and low rocker make this board extremely fast and fun even in less than ideal surf

Once you design your Mini Simmons template you need to grab a Mini Simmons surfboard blank, check our blank recommendation list. Another option is to send you design file to an AKU machine shop (find a  AKU shaping shop near you). This is a good way to do your first Mini Simmons if you have never shaped before. Basically you'll just have to finish the rails and do some light sanding.
