The Mini Simmons is effectively half a longboard. It paddles easily, planes very quickly and has very low rocker, loads of volume and ample width, and is very short, making it a challenging, but very rewarding board to surf well.
It’s a fast board that skips over the water and outruns sections with ease.
Intermediate to advanced.
At the large side of sizing, the Mini Simmons is a good intermediate board, and at the smaller end, advanced surfers will enjoy ripping this.
When ordering this board, please provide your sex, age, weight, height, fitness levels and surfing experience (in years), so that we can make sure that the board is a fit for you.
The Mini Simmons is ideally ridden in waves from 2.5 foot to where your guts and or skill run out.
Volume variations available:
Lite – Standard version
HV High Volume – for bigger surfers, or the unfit, more volume built into the foil for more buoyancy.
This board is available with different tails:
Double Diamond Tail
Straight cut Tail
Shallow swallow tail
Glassing: Currently Howitzer boards are only available in PU and Polyester resin.
Standard glassing – good quality, optimal weight to strength for specific board’s intended use.
Heavy duty glassing – Heavier weight glassing, good for novices, or boards that see’s a lot of travel to surf.
Fin layouts abvailable:
Keel (forwards and backwards adjustable 2 stub)
Channels available on this board:
The mini Simmons can be ordered without or with channels running through the tail, reducing tail volume, adding grip in the face of a wave and accelerating water out the back of the board.
Board colours and designs:
I design unique artwork for every board that leaves my shaping bay, and if you specify colours (1, 2 or three max) to be used in your design, I will use this to design artwork for your board. Alternatively, if you don’t specify anything, you get whatever I feel like doing in line with the Howitzer brand language. If you want a blank board, with only decals, please specify BLANK.

*Please note: All Howitzer boards are handshaped and not a single board is a stock item. Because of this boards take a little longer, but you get a truly unique board.
**Manufacturing time on boards are between 4 and 7 weeks from when you place your order, and will available for collection as soon as it is ready, so please be patient.
