"Wu Wei" a Mini Simmons

Wu Wei Mini Simmons by elleciel custom surfboards

Finally a Bamboo board again! I have been waiting for a very long time to get this bamboo veneer. It works really good and is super strong. This board get a glassed only bottom (120+200+200g or 4+6+6Oz) and deck get glass, bamboo and glass (2x120g or 4Oz+0.3mm bamboo+200g or 6Oz). Bamboo glassed on fins designed by Angelino.

 

It's a "classic" Mini Simmons planing hull with a round entry to an almost flat and a single concave with bevels for the last three feet.

 

These "half moon" fins didn't work. They've now been replaced by keels. No more drag feeling and the board turns good.

- Wu Wei -                                   

 

 

 "Wu wei (traditional Chinese: 無爲) is an important concept of Taoism (Daoism), that involves knowing when to act and when not to act. 

"Wu wei (traditional Chinese: 無爲) is an important concept of Taoism (Daoism), that involves knowing when to act and when not to act.

 Another perspective to this is that "Wu Wei" means natural action - as planets revolve around the sun, they "do" this revolving, but without "doing" it; or as trees grow, they "do", but without "doing". Thus knowing when (and how) to act is not knowledge in the sense that one would think "now" is the right time to do "this", but rather just doing it, doing the natural thing."

 

"There is another less commonly referenced sense of wu wei; "action that does not involve struggle or excessive effort". In this instance, Wu means "without" and Wei means "effort"."
