The spud is our conventional mini-Simmons shape. A classical outline, which holds a terrifically complex bottom contour set to provide the best possible surf in less than desirable conditions. It is built to paddle you into just about anything, with its happy place residing in mushy point break or warbly surf.  You'll find an array of surfing styles that can be drawn from this board. While surfing on the front foot or stepping forward, you can slide around with a bit of a finless feel, and while pressing into the back foot you can find good rail engagement and hold through an encroaching section.
