Hey guys i wanted to chime in. I made about 6 of these MS boards and everyone who tries them up here in NE loves them. I am blessed with hang out and shooting the **** with the guy that shaped the first MS when i visti SDCA. http://joebsurfshapes.com/mini-simmons/
I think it is because of the thick rubber up here.
And yes! no one up here has a clue what a mini sims is!
If you get a chance to try one out, do it.
I make them eps and epoxy for myself, 1/2'' double concaves to flat, quad, big a floaty and superlight.
