It all makes sense. Apparently, this Simo was quite a shady individual. The longboard that I saw was perhaps a "Code 20'" model as mentioned on Sways. Maybe the "20" referred to the wide nose?. So maybe they were all made in NJ and the Manhatten Beach Logo was all a scam? Interesting story backed up by Balsa Bill Yerkes and Jim Phillips; both honest guys who were around in the day and would have the skinny.
