-  1980 Retro Twin Fin  -

This is my most popular Retro model and is a faithful recreation of my favourite twin fin which was a 'magic' contest board, and was 6'2" by 20 ¼" by 2 ¾". I shaped the original in May 1980 for the professional events in South Africa in June, where I won the Gunston 500, and the Hang Ten International on it. Features:
  • the original outline template with a lot of forward area, making it a dream to paddle;
  • the classic wing-swallow tail shape which reduces the tail area to give the board holding power through turns;
  • a fluted wing which adds bite and alleviates slide when turning;
  • a deep-V bottom which gets the board flowing from rail to rail.
It is fast, loose, and a 'blast from the past'. The feedback on this model is 100% positive with everyone remarking how well it goes today for a 30 year old design. Set fins are standard, but we offer the custom order option of FCS Fibreglass Twin Fins and the size range is from 5'8" up to 6'8".
