    dude. dont get it shaped. just shape it yourself. Probably one of the easiest shapes ever done. You can even use block foam instead of a blank.

    Yep..second that. I shaped mine out of block foam. never bother putting in a stringer either.

    If you are anywhere near ocean city maryland, there is a place in west OC called coastal surf supplies that had at least 50-75 blanks in stock when i stopped by the other day. The short, wide Marko Foam egg blanks that would be ideal for a Mini Simmons were about $70/ea. Thinking about making a couple myself when this spring.

    Take some time to go through the blog page supporting the Simmons exhibit at, Loft 9 Gallery / Hydrodynamica, at
    http://loft9gallery.wordpress.com/. Especially when you get down to the "bar of soap" section. Contrast those boards to the original design Simmons long boards. Altogether this can be a guide to where you are headed with a Mini Simmons design. The guys at the Surfy Surfy surf shop might answer some of your questions if you give them a phone call.

    the size strongly depends on your ability as well.
    Telling someone who is a beginner to intermediate to by a 4'10 is setting them up for a world of frustration and disappointment.
    Let's face it there aren't alot of Dane Renolyds in the mid atlantic.
