WuWei 5'4"

Here is a second step on the evolution of the "WuWei". The rocker get more curve using the "Minos" foil plus a bit of thickness at the tail, the outline has been stretched one inch. Bottom contour is the classic Mini Simmons with a round hull entry followed by a single concave for the last 3 feet. Bamboo glassed on fins matching with the bamboo found on the front part of the deck. Rear part is recomposed wood veneer T-866 (catalog HERE).

- 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. 

 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"."
