Mini Simmon-Esque Potato
I came across this shape by Mark Brog of Soul Performance which he describes as “takes design elements from a mini-simmons.”
It is a nice idea, but I feel it still lacks the simmon-esque qualities that I (we) all love and look for.
Mark calls this the Mid Potato, he has added a tighter turning radius (in his opinion) with a unique diamond swallow tail. (Didn’t Roberts in Ventura already do that?)
He continues, “the abrupt outline adds for re-directional turns and the ability to break trim and shatter the stereotype of the template’s flow nature.”
Hum, not sure I want to break the Mini’s template flow.
I do like his next description, just for it’s entertainment value, “the overall spoon shape allows easy wave entry, while SNAP, CRACKLE, POP the quad fin set-up adds bursts of speed like a sugary cereal for a five-year-old.”
Interesting, but not ideal.
I like many of the concepts in his 6’4 shape but I’d cut a full foot off the template and spreed it out in a more appropriate Simmon-esque way.
What do you think?
