Mini Simmons

5.0 / 5.0 based on 3 reviews
$ 850.00 USD

I am the author of Keel Nation and have been studying the Mini Simmons for 10 years.

I ride them and shape them daily.

Custom Mini Simmons shaped by hand.

I have been shaping for over a decade, looking for the right mixture of board and art.

I found it when I discovered the Mini Simmons. Shaping is such a personal expression, and it is truly an art form.

It is foam art—yo.

No machines are used, and each shape is unique.

No knock-offs.

One man, with his tools. Passion. Creativity. Concentration. A love affair.

Boards cannot be rushed and take 6-8 weeks.

For examples of my work, see

Here is a recent video of me doing the rails on a 5'1 Mini Simmons.

And here is a complete shaping session . . .

Love the board D shaped me—ride is almost every day.

Fun in The Sun

Derek shaped me a mini simmons and I can't tell you how stoked I am—he only shapes about 25 a year and I was lucky enough to get one. He told me he was too busy running Wave Tribe to shape for outside sales, but when I asked him over beers he said ok. Get one if you can!

Lombok at outside Gerupuk

I finally got to try the board. In Lombok at outside Gerupuk with head high waves. It was sooooo fun. I managed to connect all three waves of the spot when no one else could. This board is mental, the amount of speed you get!

I also love the long curves you get to draw. Grabbing the rail on cutbacks is super fun. This is a completely different feeling from shortboards and it feels so much nicer. It worked well from the first wave and I already feel that I surf better with this than my Al Merrick.Thanks a lot again. I will try to send you a few pictures or even a video if I manage to get friends to do it for me.
