no worries, its up at Kin Kin atm, have to get it from Ryan who lives up that way but I'll let you know and we can meet up and have a surf...I'm also playing with some fins on mine atm...just trying to get em goin as good as possible and as much manouverability, drive, speed as I can, these are working really well but they wanna be busy, they like to come off the top so really fun when theres some wall to hit.....might try a set on the traveller too so I can get more feedback.....

and yes, I am expecting some pay outs about the muffin top and the star bordies, bring it on... 8)

Marcus has the dim-SIM now, and some swell heading our way too, hopefully he'll get it at some nice Noosa or even beachies round here... 8)

get it into something with a bit of wall, it likes to come off the top so if ya get a chance at Noosa or a beachie with something to bank off, keen to hear how it goes for ya.....Whats your normal board size , 9'1" ? this is 5'2" so nearly half the size, interested in your feedback mate......
anyone else keen on the Sunny Coast ? Ledge ? Any waves over there that arent spitting hollow reef pits ? 8)

My usual board is a 9'6" log and a 5'5" twinny so its not too much of a drastic change (not that I have been riding the twinny all that often of late).

Wish these easterly winds would feck off...noosa is calling though (looked too small yesterday mind)

love hearing people talk about mini-simmons, I've never known a board to make so many people laugh (in a good way from stoke) :)

its funny caveman what you said about it bringing smiles to your face, it certainly did that for me though I would like to try one a little bit bigger one day if I ever get a chance. I got the taste for them and in the usual digger style it will now take me months and months to think about it before I do anything.
no, Im not a surfer, Im just a garbage man".

recknou might like a 5'6" or 5'8" mate, just from knowing how you surf and what you've told me at board testing days etc...and the feedback from the quad I made you, think the extra size and volume would let you enjoy it in more varied conditions and especially with the waves you ride in your neck of the woods....maybe make yourself one...???
