This blue beauty is Dan’s new 5-8 Mini-Widget five-fin. The MW is the ideal small-wave shortboard. At 33L, it has plenty of volume for even the smallest conditions. Dan asked for a little more flip in the nose than the standard MW, and why not? It is a custom shape.
The full outline and flat rocker of the MW get it up and planing quickly, while the bump-wing tail and tail-V allow short-radius turns. Unlike traditional mini-Simmons shapes, the Mini-Widget is designed for surfers who want more “performance” in their small-wave equipment. Not that the MW is limited to small waves. Customers have reported that this shape works well in shoulder-high to head-high waves as well.
Don’t wait for summer to get your Mini-Widget, order one today!
