The Mini Bob is a very fast and loose board that paddles and catches waves surprisingly well. It’s the perfect small wave toy, when you’re tired of trying to ‘shred’ mediocre conditions and just want to go fast, glide through turns, and simply have fun. Named after the inventor of wide tailed twin finned surfboards, Bob Simmons, and inspired by Richard Kenvin and his Mini Simmons projects. Made thick and wide, they have plenty of float and in fact paddle much better than a conventional short board. They come with light and buoyant solid wooden keel fins, shaped with a thick single foil. Average length around 5’… so pretty much really short. Normally built with a stringerless 1 1/2 lb. blank and a special epoxy glassing schedule, but can be ordered in Openface and Full composite builds.
