Modern twin fin surfboards are developed to provide high-performance surfing taking into consideration the characteristics of this setup of fins. Due to its larger size and placement, which are brought further back in comparison to the front fins placement of a thruster, the back foot of the surfer ends up right on top of the fins, this provides a lot of projection between turns and out of bottom turns that are great to maintain speed and momentum. Another main difference between twin fins and thrusters is that the thruster has an immediate time of response, while the twin fins can have a certain “delay” due to their bigger fins and placement.
This twin fin surfboard model is inspired by Mark Richards and Ben Aipa’s twin fins, its outline resembles current surfboard models, this one specifically has a wide point, and higher volume distribution, from the middle to the back of the board, which provides more support under the surfer’s base, increasing projection in bottom turns and between maneuvers. With a more accentuated nose and tail rocker, this board has a great response for hollow waves that require more from the board. We added a single concave bottom that turns into a double between the fins, and at the end, a vee exit to more easily expel water pressure.
Surfboards are available in PU (polyurethane foam) and Epoxy (EPS or XPS foam), if you want to understand more about twin fin surfboards check out our article on how to choose a twin fin.

In most cases, surfboards with upright twin fins have a more performance-oriented surf because of their accentuated rocker and narrower tails.
