Retro Twin

This is the most popular retro model and a faithful recreation of MR's favourite twin fin which was a magic contest board, and was 6'2 by 20 by 2 1/4. He shaped the original in May 1980 for the professional events in South Africa in June, where he won the Gunston 500, and the Hang Ten International on it. The original outline template with a lot of forward area, making it a dream to paddle and the classic wingswallow tail shape which reduces the tail area to give the board holding power through turns. Also with a nice deep V bottom which gets the board flowing from rail to rail.

PU CONSTRUCTION

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.
