Twin Fin

Twin Fin -- Four Fin

Twin Fin: A short board (usually 5’8″ – 6’8″) with a wide tail for maneuverability and a fin near each rail for stability in radical turns. This design is especially well suited to smaller surf (under 6 feet), but has been pushed into mid-sized Hawaiian surf by shaper/four time world champion surfer Mark Richards (Australia).

Purpose: A wider tail area provides more planing area and lift, which creates more speed by efficiently utilizing wave energy. Milking speed and energy from smart surf with extremely sensitive and responsive turning ability are this design’s strong points.
