For Sale: Ectic Concepts Chubster Mini Simmons

Unfortunately living where I do means I’m not getting in the sea too much these days and having a quiver which includes 2 x mini simmons (this one and one I made myself) doesn’t make a lot of sense. So rather than sell something I made with my very own hands I’m selling my beloved Ectic Concepts Chubster, even though of the two boards it’s actually the one I prefer! But I can’t sell a board I’ve made myself now can I?

Here are the dims; 5’2 x 23 x 3. The short length might put some people off but if you’re a reasonable surfer (I’m not even that) you really will have no trouble surfing this thing. It’s light, has tonnes of volume for it’s length but has nice 50/50 rails which mean it’s still pretty responsive. In this way it’s not a full on conventional simmons with rails that are up in the front and down in the tail but I’ve found this does make it a really versatile board and you can have some real fun on it in thigh-high right up to head high. Board comes with the wooden style FCS Keel fins with 3 tabs that are actually over £80’s worth on their own! I’m looking for £190 for it. Here’s some piccies spanning my ownership of it and I’ll add some more over the weekend when I’ve had a chance to clean the wax off it.

Premium Cheddar

I visited Cheddar Gorge earlier in the year on a moody late spring day and I’ve only just got round to posting up the photos. I didn’t realise that the South had scenery as dramatic as this. Makes you feel small looking up at the rock faces from the bottom of the gorge. There’s a great looking climb on the road that snakes through as well so I’ll have to go back with the bike next time!
