    Michael Miller or Josh Hall fish simmons / long fish

    Thanks that's good to know. I may be able to get a 7'6 or 8'0. I'm a bit heavier but with the JH I may be able to get more custom dims so that would be ideal. The MM will be stock this time around...

    Michael Miller or Josh Hall fish simmons / long fish

    Any jammers here have experience with both that can point me to difference between the fish simmons models of these two shapers and how they surf? Potentially have an opportunity to get a Michael Miller Drifter or a Josh Hall Fish Simmons or a long fish by both and curious to hear thoughts. The...

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    Thanks for the heads up. Think I've seen a few of his on IG. I just checked out his website and he looks like he makes a lovely San Diego Fish and the longer Modros Fish (like a mid-length fish) looks sweet as a longer fish. It would have been lovely to have a board like that in Indo. The Mid...

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    absolutely... I thought as much based on his website and conversations. I've been eyeing up his Speed Hull and Turbo Hulls for a while.. When I get more time to surf, I may go down that route but for now I have the NPJ "MP" and Gato Heroid Speed Acid so I'm sorted on that front.

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    ps Jay Burnett too. He made me an awesome mid-pin based on Thick Lizzy which sadly I'm selling as I have a few other boards that also compete and Jay's board happens to be in the best knick for selling...

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    Thanks boss. Any thoughts on what you are seeing from Olero? The boards look awesome but I dont know for how long he's been shaping etc The other guy I'd put in that basket is Adrian Phillips who recently made me a great step-up Widowmaker. He does the full custom treatment...

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    Hi, thanks - that's great feedback. I know Steve Darch and Bro Diplock - both great shapers. Diplock is a UK shaping legend :) I am very glad he's back shaping. I also got my FM through Colab and dealt with Steve who was great to deal with. I'll make enquiries there as what you say makes sense...

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    pps I recently found the BOS website and love the look of his boards. His widowmaker is essentially what I've been riding for most of the last decade (but mine are Neal Purchase Jnr as I was living in Sydney for 9 years) have

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    ps in terms of the Squire boards, do you personally rate as a shaper and to craft something along these lines? The other option is waiting for an MM shaping stint / Spyder boards occasionally sell them and Josh Halls...

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    Thanks a lot for the info. I was hoping/anticipating you might have the knowledge here ;) I saw the news re the open which is a shame as they were good guys and I got my NPJ "MP" tri-plane through them.. But good to hear the feedback re the Drifter. That model has great feedback on Jammers. Do...

    Fish Simmons or Long Simmons in UK or France?

    Does anyone know of or better have experience with any fish simmons available or that can be shaped in the UK or France as I'm a fan of the Michael Miller drifter model and similar craft.. I saw that Squire surfboards may do those but dont know anything about them. Cheers

    MP Style Stubby Recs

    Congrats on the Andreini. I was after similar a few years back and Neal Purchase Jnr made me an MP style 6”10 with a tri plane hull with less of a hull than the Liddle and Andreini as I wanted something more user friendly. Anyhow enjoy the new ride and look forward to hearing feedback!

    Curious to know where Ryan Lovelace's FM fits into the Twinzer spectrum?

    1-2ft

    Thanks for the share - seriously made me laugh when he talked about the height of the waves, 1-2ft pipeline, 4ft at Sunset.,.1-2ft occasionally 3ft at Haleweia (post-surf he called it a 4ft!)

    Islands/Indo trip 3 board quiver vs home 3 board quiver

    Great mix of boards with some that I'm familiar with - the Lizzy and Ghost.. the Arakawa RP looks like a classic gunnier shape for the big hollow stuff... I have a similar outline by Adrian Phillips of fluidjuice (Cornwall) based loosely on his own models eg widowmaker and evolution and on...

    Any Advice for an Indo trip to the Ments

    Having just been (but closer to Telescopes/Iceland etc), agree that you can take whatever you feel confident on/enjoy in good waves. I had fun on a 6’9 Lovemachine FM and barely surfed my 6’5 round pin Pyzel Phantom as conditions never got that punchy or steep. On my next trip would take my 6’6...
