With twin pin designs enjoying unprecedented popularity around the surf world, Bradley has added his unique performance tweaks to deliver the freedom and fun of a twin, in a board that looks as beautiful as it performs.
The concept for the Hossego2 was to not be too loose; the beachbreaks around SW France can get hollow and powerful quickly, so while enjoying the unrestrained liberty of no centre fin, you still need control on steep faces. The resulting board offers all the classic twin fin top line speed, but will still ride the tube, fly over mushy sections and turn on a dime; all on the same wave.
A wider, beaky nose and straighter outline gives up front volume for instant speed as soon as you pop up… whilst a slight wing in the tail brings that outline to come in a tighter tail, combining with a hard rails for that all important grip. A true stunner from all angles, the Hossegor2 comes in four fresh colourways.

PU construction by Euroglass. The “P” gets its name from both the resin and the foam: polyester resin and the “U” comes from polyurethane foam . PU is the traditional surfboard construction since foam core surfboards were invented. It is still the most widely used construction method today. PU is often incorrectly referred to as “fiberglass” construction – the reason this is incorrect is because the same exact fiberglass cloth is used in both PU and Epoxy construction types, it’s the foam core and resin that soaks into the fiberglass cloth (and foam) that differ. While PU construction is generally slightly heavier and isn’t quite as strong as Epoxy construction, it tends to have a more reliable and predictable feeling whilst surfing. This is due primarily to a slower flex pattern and denser foam than epoxy construction, which basically causes less “surprises” and more predictability while surfing, especially when making hard or sharp turns. PU construction tends to be more naturally conducive to color work, especially translucent resin tints. PU is also a bit less sensitive to water infiltration and heat than epoxy construction.
