Show And Tell Shaper Juan Ma Bernal
Tell Us About Your Mini Simmons.
My model is a 5.3 “. 22 7/16. 2 3/4
with rails 50/50. tail diamonds and mild concave between the fins.
Who inspires you?
I read the story of bob simmons, and also Mr. Bugges.
but my surfing I switch to see tyler warren surfing, so fluides, that is the reality.
What interests you about the Mini Simmons shape?
So passionate about their stability, fluidity of the turns, ease of catching waves, and well I am passionate about being true to what I do retro wooden keels hand around a traditional process, that’s what excites me more.
If you shaped your own board – Shaper Juan?
make a mini simmon is all a ceremony for me, because it is outside the normal parameters of a conventional table, both measures rail cuts, rockers, placement of keels everything in general
Where can we see more or follow future shapes?
Now the range is very wide, I’ll keep evolving as far as I am able, I will continue testing and experimenting in this type of shortboard.
