MSS Shaper’s Interview Dhiya Md


MSS Shaper’s Interview Dhiya Md, Welcome to our Mini Simmons shaper’s interview with Dhiya.


MSS: Who inspires you? Shapers? Riders? Mom?

Dave Rastovich, Dane Reynolds, Alex Knost, and Tyler Warren.

MSS: What interests you about the Mini Simmons shape?


Fast, fast, and fast.

MSS: Who rides your boards and why do they like the Mini Simmons?

Just me.

I like it because it’s small, it’s fast, it’s loose, catches waves easily and tons of fun.

MSS: What is your opinion on rails, deck, bottom and fin design?


Nice foiled out rails would be good, if you can afford it go thinner on them rails.

Step deck is nice other than that a scoop nose is also good, i call it the magic nose, pops out of the water when you think you’re about to pearl.

Single throughout or a slight double on the back.

Classic keels!

MSS: Do you have any shaping tips?


Take your time and have fun doing it.

Wow, love the result.
