2013 is 7 years posterior to Joe Bauguess’ first Mini Simmons, which he shaped for surfer Richard Kenvin in San Diego. Now, the design, as we know it, has been adapted and recreated in nearly every shaping bay around the world, and has become almost as much of a household board as a longboard.
The Mini Simmons is now becoming the go to small to bad wave board for many die-hard shortboard surfers, the all around go to board for fish surfers, and a great additive to the quiver for longboard surfers who need a smaller board for the big days.
Here’s an array of some epic different choices I had shaped from some of my best buds on the Central Coast: Ray Lucke, Robert Wiener, Jason Kline.
