Last month's flat spell got me to thinkin' about summertime, which is right around the corner.....south swells, warmer water, hot sun, fire coal sand under the feet -- love it!
So here's a great little summertime change-up board to keep the speed up and the stoke fresh -- The "Twin Fang" (watch the outtakes at the end of the video for how we came up with the name).
You see a lot more of these weird little boards in the lineup these days.....and they're back `cause they're fast. This is an updated version of the original "Fish" design. I've incorporated a modernized single-to-double concave-to-accelerated spiral vee bottom, and blended it with the original retro outline, flat deck and full rails...why? - for the enjoyment of hair raising speed runs.
I recommend riding this board eight inches shorter, two inches wider and 1/8" thicker than you regular shortboard dimensions.
Also available: with quad fin setup, or in the "Proxy" (custom flexible epoxy) construction.
