Inspired by the Mini Simmons models of the era, The Stubby is designed as a compact cruiser. This is a wide, flat and super stable board that’s short in stature and big on fun. The outline up front resembles a longboard, offering exceptional paddle power while also allowing to ride from a more forward position. The rolled vee hull and slightly tapered tail keeps it loose, lively enough to perform silky smooth turns. KEY FEATURE: Maximum volume, width and stability makes this model really easy to ride, and the shorter length and rolled vee bottom allows for easy rail-to-rail transitions. We suggest riding The Stubby at least 6 inches shorter than your standard board. CURVES: Low rocker for quick acceleration and forward flow. The full-length rolled vee bottom offsets the width and keeps the manoeuvrability factor high.
