It may just depend on what Gary does with the rocker and the rails. Mine only seems to work in better waves from shoulder height. Gary did the low rails for me. But even though the wide nose and tail look fishy - it is definitely not a grovellor. I rode it for about 9 months straight in everything and find it sits on my racks until decent swell arrives. I should have got it with the fifth plug so i could ride it as a twin plus trailer in less than stellar stuff. Crazy-fast board. Can't speak highly enough about the tech - i've had the board three years and it is holding up amazingly.
May sell this one and look into something with less width.

i did - it loosened things up, but didn't improve the range of waves too much. Worked as well as the RTT though. No need for both.

Yep same, can be small but the wave needs a bit of punch.

Actually, if i recall correctly, i tried to buy some salty merchant keel fins from some guy and he never sent them...but in the end it all worked out. That said, every time i go to buy keel fins now, i hit the ground in the foetal position.

I fondled the new Tyler warren twins & the new Chippa Wilson & NPJ twins today, both look the shizzle. If I was looking for a set of twin fins for an RTT for example, I d be all over these like a raped ape: https://captainfin.com/collections/twin-fins

Worthwhile trying as a twinnie? Would need some fins- consensus to forgo keel type and go for a more upright fin?

Batoes any tips on who to buy from? <:

:D

I think those salty merchant electric keels would be pretty sweet - half MR half Rasta keel. Sounds like twin fin breeding heaven. Or any of the new captain fin sets - they have brought out a stack.

I have no recommendations on where to buy anything...wonder if you can get fins on the dark web?
