    It's very stable, but that comes with the width. I've had a long fish and a McCoy Nugget with approximately the same width. While all three ride differently, they were/are all stable.

    Thats pretty sweet I been wanting a mini simons type board for the slow waves . I kinda have my mind set on this

  4. Hey Mike i made one a Mini Simmi for Herring Point, I made it out of an old dewey weber and its 5'x 22.5 and it is by far the fastest board i have ridden. Takes a little getting used to but once you get it dialed in its great! I have the template for it if you need to borrow one.

    It was a joke made famous by the movie Beerfest. it would have been funny, but i guess know one put the two together

    wazzup Matt...just picked up a piece of EPS foam today. Stringerless, 5'10" x 24" and flat as an ironing board. I'll bend in about 3" nose rocker, maybe 1/2" tail rocker and see you out there on it by the end of the summer...i'm pretty lazy.

    Done making this thing....never been so obsessed with banging a board out...probably because the waves this week in Delaware have been EXACTLY the kind i want to ride on this board.
    Started shaping sunday, glassed after work this week, sanded out and its done. AND UGLY! Had a real issue with fish eyes on the epoxy hot coat. Red pigment to seal the blank and in the lam. It is shaped from a stringerless chunk of EPS foam. Most of the rocker was bent in last week. 5'8" x 22 1/2" X 2 3/8" 1/2" TR 3 1/4" NR. Cant wait to ride it tomorrow morning and put some heel dents in the TWO DAY OLD glass job!

    She's a chunker! Looks like a blast, brother! What do you think was the deal with the fisheyes? Humidity bad there? Did you use Add F?

    I used 1 ml. of add f per oz of hardener.
    hot coating was done in extreme heat and humidity.
    Board after lam was briefly set on racks (to grind the laps) that have had waxy board repairs done on them.

    I really set myself up for this hurrying, and the fish eyes are really big....i had to hover over the hot coat as it set up, dripping resin into the fish eyes, chasing them all over the board as they appeared, sweating like a pig in the hot shed, just waiting to drip sweat right off my chin into the hot coat. Typical yard sale glass job, the board will probably ride like a champ just to prove looks count for nothing!

    Great rocker profile & great choice of fin. Hard to tell, but did you put any belly in it?
