It all started with the fish when the innovative shapers and board builders out there decided to revisit the past for some inspiration. In doing so they brought back some lost skills such as resin tints and hand foiled fins.The Fish Fry has been a place for these fine craftsmen to showcase their skills. We have seen some amazing boards as shapers have pushed the boundaries over the last few years. As this new look at the fish has evolved to its many forms, it has influenced other shapes and designs along the way.This has spawned a renewed interest in other board forms by this same group and a wider following.Notably the Mini Simmons, Hulls, old school Logs and Pigs. It is pleasing to note that there are an increasing number of people building their own boards as well.All of this is to be applauded and celebrated as a positive for surfing.So it is only natural that these shapers and board builders continue to share their skills with us and include these other shapes at the Fish Fry.It has truly become a melting pot of ideas for like minded people.

Chusma Surfboards from North Western Spain

Chus , sent me a link to his blog to check out his boards and share them with you. He builds some nice fish and simmons in his range .

An interesting Simmons with a third fin setup like John Cherry has on his Simmons 21.

The angled tail and distinct concave scoop in the deck at the nose.

Now this is interesting an asymmetric Simmons with keel and quad fins.

Nice to see that the fish and the simmons are a live and well in all far flung parts of the planet and guys like Chus are mixing it up.
