In 2009 after developing and riding my version of the mini simmons for the period spanning september into march 2010, I tacked into a new direction.

I wanted to test my new found understanding of the planing hull incorporated into a performance short board. The first boards I tinkered with were a 5’7 for Grant Muir and a 5’9 for myself. There was relatively high success right away. The board was nick named the Stuey Diver. These boards worked very much in tune with my imaginative theory on surface area attuned with more acute rail angle and way flatter bottom curves than I had experimented (outside of the simmons concept)
Later I moved toward a slightly longer version that could hold it’s rail up to 5 feet of surf, keeping the concepts of the STUEY DIVER at the fore front of the design. The model was nick named the JUNIOR DIVER (which is a pinch of gibson guitar influence) this has turned out to be the most popular :pcc design to date. My personal version of this design is 5 10 X 20 X 2 1/2 made from a styrofoam core with epoxy coating.
More soon.
