    Just finished with the shaper, he's making it 6-2x22.5x3, stringerless epoxy and quad. Should be great for my height and weight (6-6, 245lbs) I reckon. Super stoked. I'll post photos in a few weeks when it's ready. Thanks again

    That's sounds like the ticket. Will be interesting to see how it looks and rides. Especially since we're the exact same height and weight. My JB is a 7ft twin epoxy single striner and I hope to ride it for the first time next week. Enjoy!

    There aren't alot of boardriders our size. There used to be a dude named Beef on here who was surfing at 6-3 375lbs. He was a strength athlete or something. Post a photo of that twin fin, I'd love to check it out.

    Nice dude. I may ask you if I can take a wave or two next time I see you out there. Two more weeks approx on the new stick.

    Picked up my mini a couple weeks ago. I have six sessions on it and I'm blown away. So responsive, fast as hell, wave catching machine. It feels like a flying saucer or something. Hard to explain. I wish I got one of these a long time ago. image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

    That board looks SICK, great fin choice. Who shaped it?

    i was out saturday on mine. was like 2'+ and i ended up getting a couple rides that were 100 yard rights. i would have never been able to keep the speed or do the turns i was able to on my waist to chest high board, or a longboard. 4 days later im still stoked about the rides i got on that thing... ON A 2' DAY.
    totally agree. There are waves so small and weak, only a longboard could paddle into them...but a minisimmons-type board definitely fills a gap between those longboard only days and waves powerful/steep enough for a stub shortboard or fish.

    I also agree that these board are best with a twin keel or controller quad (which is just a big twin keel broken into 4 fins). When these boards are ridden with upright fins, they pivot better (near the takeoff), but lag at making maneuvers on the smaller/slower inside.
