Re: Ask Carroll

Thanks for your feedback. My thoughts around needing a stabiliser was mainly geared around the possibility of its use in more solid overhead stuff, and really only a bit more stability in the trough ( in case the side fins weren't big and deep enough ). I can see why you'd be a diehard MR fan living...

Re: Ask Carroll

Performance Twins are good for sorting out bottom turns and what not. If your game is crook they find you out pretty quick. funny you mentioned that. bottom turns (late steep drop into full committed ones) are THE single most prominent thing i have to keep in mind when jumping back on the twinny. i...

Re: Ask Carroll

not after a groveller as such. moreover a board that's super fast and very free flowing for a range of conditions for 2-5 foot (tops). beachies mostly. i like the freedom and different lines that a twinny allows you to draw in the top half of the wave, and particularly how it can slingshot fast off ...

Re: Ask Carroll

That's what I'm after. A tear it to shreds stick for small-mid sized stuff. I've seen them, picked them up, and always thought they looked killer. Think I'm gonna invest in one. U don't see that many of them about (prob lots in newy though)

Re: Ask Carroll

Nick. Have you ever surfed an MR Super Twin (with reasonably sized middle fin stabiliser) and if so what do u think of the board for its suitability in beach break conditions up to head and a half high (wind swell and groundswells) ? As I'm very tempted to get one ( love the idea of a blended middle...

Some great runs, considering being dosed up on mercyndols and antibiotics and on an almost empty stomach. Took the 6'6 bonzer out....
