This board is high performance fun. It is really fast and loose
with plenty of area and boyancy to get you into waves quick and
easy - even relly small ones. Twin fins don't have the same feeling
of positive control in turns that a tri fin or even a fish does,
but this board more than makes up for that with incredible drive
and speed - you arrive at the top of a turn before you even know
you've left! You can ride one of these in any surf up to double
overhead - or bigger if you really get used to the twin fin style;
just look at what Mark Richards used to do at Sunset!
Like the Fish, it is a slightly wider board with a fuller nose to
provide buoyancy in smaller mushy surf, combined with a low rocker
and a concave through the middle to provide maximum speed and planing
This design brings the latest technology to a style of surfing
that hasn't been popular for awhile. If you're looking for a fun
board with high performance potential you really ought to give one
of these a go. They are a bit flighty for beginners but you could
order one with a small trailer fin to calm it down and give it a
more positive feel.
