mini simmons vs. what?

everyone's been raving about the mini-Simmons and it's had me thinkin. some prophesy that it's the next big thing. but what about this little clip from 2006 of a guy ripping a board that's shorter than the mini simmons and with no fins? it's a very similar outline with a wide tail.

I had a feeling the Simmons was too good to be true when I saw the video of RK surfing an alaia. he does that really well too.
you can get a top quality finless biscuit (aka sponge) for under two bills or a mini-simmons for $1,050.00. either way you won't be able to dominate on either one unless you can surf as well as RK.
