SIMMER ENDURO 5.9M TEST REVIEW 2024   SIMMER ENDURO 5.9M TEST REVIEW 2024   The Verdict The Simmer Enduro is pleasant, stable and extremely user-friendly as it does not often feel over powered due to its natural tuning ability. The Enduro’s drive comes from the front of the sail, which makes gybing and working onto the plane a breeze. The Enduro feels at home on a freeride board, but will just as easily open the doors for the user in typical bump and jump conditions.   The Lowdown Immediately, the Enduro’s fluorescent yellow top and luff sleeve brighten up the beach, especially ..read more
