Recreation of the most popular design of Bob Simmons (1948), known as the "father of the modern surfboard". This board not only turns, but in nice sized waves is capable of drawing big clean lines at match speed, while in tiny surf it just takes off and flies. Designed and shaped by Montjuich Surfboards.

All Flama surfboards are handmade one by one, and we don’t make mass production –all come with its serial number–. That is why we allow a period of 8/10 weeks to make your surfboard, a bit less in case of blanks. Once we start with your board, we'll be sending you pictures of the whole process so you can follow how your board is being made.
Choose your preferred fin configuration: removable (FCS plugs or fin box) or fixed bamboo ply. In the case of bamboo ply fins for finished surfboards, they don't come installed in order to prevent possible damage during transport. Installing the fins is an easy work: you'll just have to embed the fin firmly in the slit and glue it with either poliester or epoxy resin.
Let us know your preferred shape specs: concaves, tail shape or whatever details you want for your board. It will not entail a price increase unless we let you know.
All boards come with the Flama logo pyrographed and treated with clear varnish, but it's possible to decorate or personalize the board with dye, pyrography drawings and other techniques. Let us know your ideas and we'll see if it fits in the "decoration" option. Also, it's possible to decorate the board yourself –or by an artist you know: we can ship the board with only a base coat aplied (wood preserver), compatible with dye, acrylic, Poska or many other techniques. The finish treatment can be done with an uncolored satin varnish for outdoor parquet flooring (any of the products available in the market should do well).
Every surfboard blank is designed for a specific shape or model, so there are certain shaping limitations. Each blank comes with its own shaping template, which allows you to control in every moment and in every corner of the board, how far down you can sand. The tools and shaping process is quite similar to foam shaping, with the difference that when the shape is finished you only need to apply a few coats of varnish. Know more about how it's done here.
