This is the very first MR twin fin, and is the same shape as the board I rode in the classic movie Free Ride. This board is designed to be ridden and does not feature the hand-made fins and intricate spray of the Free Ride Collectors Edition.
The 1978 Retro Twin Fin started the multi-fin revolution and completely changed our perception of high-performance surfing. I won the Stubbies and Bells events on this board which set me on a track to win 4 World Titles.
It comes with a simplified 2 colour version of the Free Ride deck spray and a clear bottom. The size range is from 5'8" up to 6'8" and the finish is a gloss and polish with white set fins.
- a full pointed nose with maximum thickness carried forward;
- a classic wing swallow tail shape which reduces area to give the board holding power through turns;
- a fluted wing which adds bite and alleviates slides when turning;
- a deep-V bottom which gets the board flowing from rail to rail.
