Brad Puts The OSX3 (Simmy3) To The Test

Thursday February 23, 2012 - Brad, Jeff and Geoff came up from lower Cali for a flash trip to grab some L41 and NorCal beach break love. Although not great, the incoming swell provided some fun waves for the intrepid trio. Primary motivators for the quick trip were 1) Geoff wanted to pick up his new custom McGinty built L41 Surfboards mini-Simmons, and 2) Brad wanted to satisfy his curiosity about the Simmy3. Both missions were accomplished. It was fun, revealing and energizing for Brad to ride the third in the series, and highest performing SIMSUP, and decide for himself if it was the real deal. And it was gratifying for me to have such a good SUP surfer and wave rider put the fastest and most maneuverable version of the Original SIMSUP to the test. I'd say it passed with flying colors. Brad cut his teeth on juicy beach break and that kind of surf is his primary go to spot, so he felt right at home in the frontside lefthanders. Then to top off the day he caught so many backside reef sliders he got a new nickname. The Count. But the video speaks to all this. Nine minutes of revelation. (Time: 9:32)
