Product Info

This beauty of a board is the result of an epic collaboration with one of the world’s most stylish surfers @MikeyFebruary and Channel Islands' lead Shaper and Designer Britt Merrick. They worked on this versatile twin-finned pintail for over two years, with the goal of creating a board that had all the fun twin feels but enough hold and projection to free you from ever wishing for a third fin or trailer. Designed as an all-rounder, it helps you rip in anything from the mellow mushy stuff to nearing double overhead rifling walls. Along the way, Britt also developed a specific fin just for the Twin Pin Channel Islands simply dubbed the Britt Merrick Twin—a well-tested and balanced blend between a more upright style fin like the MTF and classic keel outline like the AMK.

From the nose and toward the back, the bottom is flat, then to a slight roll, and vee in the back half, which creates a buttery board that is both responsive and solid. The rails are low, so most people ride the Twin Pin at least 1/8” thicker than their shortboard. It works best with the special twin fin template Britt designed just for this board that is between a keel and upright and provides the right balance of drive, hold, and maneuverability.

The Twin Pin can be ridden with various dimensional approaches according to what you want to do, ride, and feel. Mikey February surfs a 6’0” shortboard and likes his Twin Pins at 5’9” and 5’11” to suit any conditions around the world. Tanner Gudauskas likes his the same length as his normal shortboard for Trestles, and Britt likes to ride his Twin Pins at Rincon a couple of inches longer than his regular shortboards.

Product Construction

Polyurethane/Polyester Resin
Building a board in PU means using a Polyurethane foam blank and glassing it with polyester (PE) resin . This is how the majority of today’s surfboards are built. It is not a new way to make a board, but the materials are very stable, strong, consistent, and easy to work with. Many surfers prefer the feel of PU boards because that is what they have ridden all their lives, and because they feel really good.
