Looks like really worked well! Even the very tiny, flatter waves, lots of glide carrying speed into the flats for cutbacks but still plenty maneuverable.

Bogus is referring to Joe Bauguess. Joe says he is the one that built the mini Simmons. Had a bunch of joe b boards and all were good. Never had a lame one.
