Channel Islands Twin Fin surfboard 5ft 7 Futures - White
Britt Merrick son of Channel Islands head honcho Al had shaped himself a retro twinny for a comp where shapers had to ride their own shaped retro boards. The board Brett shaped was loosely based around one of Al's original boards he'd shaped for himself back in the 1970's. Brett took a template off this original and updated it with a modern rocker giving the board positive drive and the ability to carve.
This reincarnation proved a real hit with all the Channel Islands Factory riders including Britt and Dane Reynolds. The "Twin Fin" as it was imaginatively named, was put through it's paces in everything from weak beachies to the long carvable walls of Rincon. All the pilots agreed that the Twin Fin was a real "crowd pleaser", out-paddled the mob and proved to be a real wave catching machine.
The whole board has been fine-tuned; including a relaxed entry and exit rocker and tapered rails that give added responsiveness and sensitivity.
The Twin Fin comes with 2 x Futures boxes and a single FCS plug for a trailer fin.
Britt recommends riding your Twin Fin 2 to 4 inches shorter than you are tall; and 1/2" to 1" wider and 1/8" to 1/4" thicker than your normal performance shortboard.
