I am author of Keel Nation and have been studying the Mini Simmons for 10 years.
I ride them and shape them.
Custom Mini Simmons shaped by hand.
I have been shaping for over a decade, looking for the right mixture of board and art. I found it when I discovered the Mini Simmons. Shaping is such a person expression, it is truly an art form. It is foam art.
No machines are used and each shape is unique. No knock-offs.
One man, with his tools. Passion. Creativity. Concentration. A love affair.
Boards cannot be rushed and take 6-8 weeks.
We care about what is happening to our planet and we are deeply concerned about the health of our oceans.
We love to surf and we want to spend our hard-earned cash on surf gear that is made to last with ecology in mind.
Back in 2007 we couldn't find any eco surf products in the surf shops so we decided to create a surf company that would put sustainability and quality first.
Life is too short to sit behind a desk and do anything about what is happening to our planet so we started an eco revolution and we'd love you to join us.
Every product we make is made with care for the planet first, using high quality eco materials like hemp, cork, bamboo and recycled plastics.
We started Wave Tribe back in 2007 when the word green referred to a color and now many of the mainstream surf brands are jumping on the green wagon to get your dollars---Wave Tribe helped build that eco wagon with deep roots in ecology, sustainability and lots of hard work.
Along the way we have taken the time to research and develop our products in real life situations traveling to Bali, France, Mexico, Nicaragua, Spain, Brazil, Peru, Oz, New Zealand, G-land, Africa . . . and lot's more.
Yea, we've been around and surfed some of the greatest waves on the planet and we are here to share that journey with you. While searching for waves we started making surf guides for you (we offer them for free) and writing travel articles ( also free) while testing the Wave Tribe products.
