  • Progressive template and fin foiling to refine overall performance characteristics.
  • Modified ‘cant’ to enhance responsiveness.
  • Leading edge culminates in a “beak” for improved flow and release.

Performance Glass Series

Fins in this series are precision cut from a solid multi-layered Volan/Poly glass sheet.  The blanks are then hand foiled to meet exacting design specs.

Volan Layup – Allows the fins to flex and rebound in a controlled manner during turns and maneuvers.  This unique flex pattern can contribute to increased drive, speed, and overall performance of the fins.        Hand Foiling – Allows for precise shaping and customization of the foil which enhances control of its flex pattern and optimizes performance.                                                                                                                                  Template –  Outlines are designed to maximize a rider’s in water experience.                                                    Natural Finish – To promote water to water adhesion.

The Twin Fin- A Brief History

Development of the Twin Fin surfboard emerged in the 1970s as a departure from the traditional single fin setup.  Surfboard design innovators like Reno Abellira, Barry Kanaiaupuni and Ben Aipa in Hawaii as well as the Byrne brothers in Australia, played pivotal roles in refining and advancing Twin Fin designs.

The Twin Fin setup offered distinct performance characteristics compared to traditional single fins. The design featured two smaller fins positioned near the tail of the surfboard. The Twin Fin configuration provided increased maneuverability, speed, and the ability to execute tighter turns with less drag.

Mark Richards, an Australian surfer and shaper, played a crucial role in elevating the Twin Fin to new heights. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Richards dominated competitive surfing using his Twin Fin designs. He refined the template, fin placement, and bottom contours to maximize speed, control, and maneuverability.

With the advent of the thruster (tri-fin) setup in the early 1980s, the Twin Fin’s popularity waned as surfers embraced the additional control and versatility offered by the thruster. However, in the early 2000s, there was a resurgence of interest in the Twin Fin design, driven by a desire for alternative surfing experiences and a nostalgic appreciation for the style and flow it provided.

In recent years, Twin Fin designs have continued to evolve. Shapers have experimented with fin templates, materials, and foil designs to refine performance and cater to different wave conditions and riding styles. Contemporary Twin Fins often feature advanced materials, refined foils, and progressive outlines that blend traditional aesthetics with modern performance characteristics.
