Here is your Bob Simmons Article.
This article was first published in one of the main surf magazines back in the 80’s.
It’s full of great information on the original Bob Simmons shape and tells the story of Bob’s life—he was quite the character.
Bob was influenced by the hull design of boats and being an engineer he was always tweaking his shapes to try and find the right mixture of engineering and surfing.

For Sale: 2 Mini Simmons ($325)
I have two mini simmons surfboards for sale. Both are in excellent condition. The blue one is 5’8″x22 3/4x 3″ and the red one is 5’4″ x 22 1/2 x 2 3/4 “. The 5-8 has full rails, single concave and catches a ton of waves.
The 5-4 is a single to double concave with thinner rails and turns on a dime. Both are PU. I like them both but I’m getting a 5-6 and need to find space in the garage. I’m only selling one, so which ever goes first! No leash of bag with the boards, but they both have glassed on fins. Each one is $325 obo. If the ad is still up they’re available. Thanks for looking.
For Sale: 5’4 Fishtank Mini Simmons
Single concave through the board with an FCS Fusin Quad set-up that makes this high performance version of the mini simmons incredibly fast and quick in the water.
Moon tail that provides hold on the turns with rail engagement and increased speed in the flats.[button size=”large” link=”www.facebook/fishtankboards.com” target=”_blank”]Grab This Boardbag[/button]
