Mark’s new 6’0″ Double Hot Curl. . .

During the ordering process, Mark was sending me written accounts of Bob Simmons design theories as well as photos and dimensions of the boards Mark typically rides.

All Marks examples are very Simmons inspired and I got that he was walking the path less travelled. Something I can well relate to; as I guess it would be safe to say there’s not a lot of foot prints along the trail of my Hot Curl journey.

I spent most of the weekend shaping Mark’s board which bear in mind was already machine shaped. All the same I sunk a surprising amount of Roger hours into this board.

As I was nearing the finish line it occurred to me that all I had really done was shape a Bob Simmons, if you take a Bob Simmons and really exaggerate the bottom contours, really push them out there, then cut in the recess to separate the tails, leave off the twin fins then you will most likely end up with this shape! Well I did!

With this fresh revelation smacking me firmly between the eyes I stood in my dusty room with just one question: Would BOB approve? . . .

    You should do some SciFi movie spaceship designs that would fit in so well! I love the look of it. I tried to ride one once on one of your ‘Open Days’ but sadly by the time I got to grab it the waves had decided not to play the game. Sometime soon perhaps.

    Hi Blair, thanks for your comments and interest in the Double Hot Curl design, we are currently working on several custom orders as well as more prototypes for myself. We are doing a wide range of lengths now as the interest in the design hots up. I always have several examples in my van so anytime you see me at the beach just come over and say hello, you are welcome to try one anytime. As far as the artwork goes, I agree! I’m sure the scifi theme will come into play as it’s such a natural fit! Cheers, Roger.
