It's just a slab, very sight nose concave with flat tail, unlike the typical simmons no nose roll, and no tail concave or roll in tail rail area.

The board is only 27 litres, pretty thin and low buoyancy.

Funny how obedient everyone is to the marketed trends... looks like a simmons so gets approval... anyway thanks.

Just looks like a board people might surf Roy....like the idea of slight nose concave....next you'll be noseriding.

I won't be getting any video of this one although I might build another one for the grommets.

The board's going to a shop called 'House of Aroha'

There'll be some new video soon .

I know you won't be getting video of it Roy, I was baiting. It's so bloody obvious why you won't be getting any video of it too.

Roy could always pay someone who's actually decent at surfing to wear his red jumpsuit and helmet then stick a false beard on and we'd be none the wiser.

In your original post Roy (i didn't/haven't read the link) you showed one photo. From that photo I saw a board that would be fun, which had nothing to do with trends. Now you've mentioned its a chopping board with a couple of keels it has started to lack luster. Shame as a properly considered version would have made it more appealing. Never mind Roy - you could have taken some of the interest and run with some new ideas, but instead did what you always do. Boring old chap, very tedious. And until you have ridden a proper JB version of the mini-simmons and understand the thinking behind the shape, you can't comment any more than I can of yours - except yours is possibly a poor interpretation based on what you've seen in 2D. I doubt you know all the facets, and would probably be to blinkered to observe beyond your sphere. Trend it such a blunt word Roy - its reactionary shite that spits at the opposition you've created in your mind. The design is popular because it works - that based on evidence beyond anything you can claim. Chill out man.....it was mild praise for something you don't make or show that often.

Hmmm a wordy bite. :-D

Trying to think again cheeseface? ( always a mistake in your case.. ) :lol:

Simmons made 'em flat too you know, and none of your lame posturing contains a single hydrodynamic concept, it's 100% social BS, absolutely laughable... no doubt you think that you are sounding knowledgable but it's all hot hair. :P :P :P

Actually that's 100% incorrect where on earth did you pick up that myth ? ( I've heard it being bandied about but it is BS)

Roll will make the board plane LATER not earlier.

It's hydrodynamics 101 Kayu.

High lift noses are what get boards up and planing early. Bottom roll is a low lift displacement feature, yes I know the difference.

It's amazing how many people buy into these myths.

OK. COMPARISON.

As purdy as it is, I think you have just dumbed down your ethereal quiver. Just my opinion. I like that shop you're selling it in. Nice stuff in there.
