5ft 8" Shovel Head Simmons

5ft 8" x 23" x 2 1/2"

I tapered the rails to keep them fine and still keep the thickness in the blank.

Square nose with a hull entry to a flat under the front foot and a concave out through the tail.

Big blunt nose with an S deck

Gone to a good home

One of my early hollow wooden boards has gone to a good home. Kevin Hill from Bagara near Bundaberg .

The 5 foot Shovel Head Simmons

5ft x 22 1/2"

Beveled rails help to hide the thickness and gives a nice fine rail for bite.

Nice soft concave out through the tail.

Hullish entry

Nice flowing foil over a very short length

Should be a little rocket. I shaped this for Brian Punch to glass himself for his son who also has a 5ft 4" Mini Simmons I shaped for him.
