These three Mini-Widgets are now in the rack at the Homegrown Surf Shop in Ventura. Left to right in the photo is a 5-4, 5-6 and 5-2, and they will join a 5-8 already at the shop. The Mini-Widget is a Mini-Simmons variant designed for small, less-than-ideal conditions. The full outline gets the board up and planing quickly, But unlike its Mini-Sims cousin, the pulled in nose and tail makes it much more responsive, and more capable of vertical surfing. All four boards have 5 FCS Fusion boxes so that they can be ridden as a quad or thruster. Typically, you would ride a MW 6″-8″ shorter than your every day shortboard.
