[ Twin Fin ]

The Twin Fin is designed for knee high to well overhead waves in all conditions. Twin fins first appeared in the late '60s, but were somewhat overlooked until Mark Richards embraced the design in the mid '70s and early '80s. The narrow tails common to single fins could limit performance with their lack of surface area. The extra surface area in the tail of twin fins provide lift, acceleration and speed. The surface area combined with the two fin configuration yields a fast, loose, and responsive surfboard. Design features - Rocker: Low Speed Box, Low Continuous, or Low Relaxed. Profile: Moderate foil with adequate volume. Outline: Moderate cut swallow for a classic twin or any of the contemporary shortboard tail configurations. Bottom Contours: Vee or tri plane entry to tri plane wide point to panel vee wide point to tail. Or vee entry to single concave wide point to shallow double concave spiral vee from wide point to tail. Rails: Moderately full rail with foiled rail profile for control for bigger surfers. Lower moderately thinner rail for smaller surfers.
