The Simmer Quantum are extremely easy, efficient and all-around wave boards. Loose enough to be quickly whipped around in small waves, fast enough to enable big jumps in any conditions and controllable enough to keep delivering when the wind and the waves get serious. The extra width is a shortcut to better wave sailing for the progressing wave sailor but will also let the expert generate more power and speed from smaller or slower waves. Even in small sizes, the Quantums will carry big sails and still stay loose and efficient which means you will not need and extra board to cover your light wind needs.
The Quantum comes with Simmer Mission front fins and a set of Icon rear fins, designed for maximizing drive and grip while still providing predictability, control and easy top turn slides and other new school maneuvers. For an even looser feel you can try the optional Mission rear fins or the full Black Tip set.
Simmer Quantum KEY FEATURES
Medium rocker design, with curvature optimized for performance over a big speed register.
Wider outlines and tails to carry bigger sails and allow powerful wave riding in a big variety of waves.
- Straps further back and shorter lengths to make the boards snappier.
- Less tuck to the rails and a sharper release for better performance in lighter winds.
- Shallow single concave for a sharper, livelier feel.
- Double concaves inside the single, with apex close to rail for increased grip.
- Shape optimized to work with a wide variety of quad fin styles and setups – awesome tuneability and adaptability.
Simmer Quantum RIDER COMMENT
" The Quantum is the wave board in the Simmer range that really brings alive typical European conditions, wind-swell type conditions. It has great speed and get up and go due to its flatter rocker but also the ability to do some some incredible snappy turns. Which is why the Quantum is the first board I reach for when things go a bit average out there, as the Quantum brings the the best out of average conditions. "

The Simmer Quantum CONSTRUCTION our production methods focus on quality and consistency, rather than trying to make as many boards as possible. This produces a much higher quality product, resulting in a more accurate and consistent shape once the board is removed from the mold. With no need to refinish or cover up any imperfections, we can stay focused on each board’s structural integrity throughout the production process. Therefore, Simmer Style boards are by definition semi-custom. Our process, along with the innovative Carbon X principle, produces a board that feels more custom made than production when it hits the water.
The Carbon X construction applies similar principals as freestyle snowboarding where the rider uses the flex and twist of the board to gain speed to maneuver. The concept is to use the strength and stiffness of the carbon where it’s needed the most. This provides some major performance advancements such as that the Carbon X construction:
1. absorbs the energy caused by impact which increases the durability and longevity of the board.
2. generates more flex in the bottom turn which promotes drive and creates a livelier feel.
