The MR Turbo channel Twin fin is a new model for 2024, combining the design features from my two most popular models; the Super Twin and the Flying Fish. It has been designed as an all rounder which will excel in surf ranging anywhere from 2 to 6ft.
The Turbo Twin features 4 angled channels which are cut & shaped into the single to double concaves. These angled channels are a design feature that I shaped on many of my retro twin fin models during the mid 1980s and have been redesigned to enhance the bottom contours of this new model. The channels funnel water flow through the tail of the board generating extra lift and therfore speed and their edges provide more hold and control through turns.
The plan shape has a full pointed nose with the wide point ahead of center combining with plenty of forward thickness distribution giving it incredible paddle power.
The tail is based on the classic MR wing / swallow on the 1980 Retro Twin Fin models, redesigned with a bigger angled wing & a wider swallowtail. This results in plenty of area in the back 1/3 of the board giving it tons of get up and go speed in smaller waves.
The Fins are set up with three sets of plugs for the option of riding it as a pure twin fin or a twin fin with a small stabiliser fin in the tail. Both options work really well with the shape.
