    Twin or twinzer?...either way...looks like it will be a fun board!

    Twinzers...mmm...I been on a twinny kick on my homemade gear and love the speed. I think I may just pull the trigger and try a HPSB--wider tail...wing and swallow...hmmmm. May have to be my next build!

    Its a Retro Twin Fin. Twinnies , Twinzer didnt know there was a differnce between the 2. I and 165 in boardies so with winter rubber I guess add 15 lbs . It came with Future T1 fins but I am gonna run down to Heritage and see if the Rasta fins are avaible to rent cause I got a really good lead on a set for cheap and I would to try them before I buy them

    Good luck with the new board, Matt... I rode my retro fish yesterday for the second session. I'm a huge fan. Most people don't appreciate and take advantage of the full range conditions a fish can excel in... thinking it's just for tiny waves. The performance parameters of a well designed fish go far beyond what most people believe.

    ditto...rode my "retro" twinnie yesterday afternoon in stomach chest high maryland...clean lined up not really hollow but not mushy. Agree those boards are not knee high grovel boards...Matt...my board dims are exactly what you just got...5'10" x 21" x 2 1/2" its amazing how well those boards paddle in full winter rubber. I have ridden this board with both the Futures T1 fins and the rasta fins and theres not a great deal of difference.

    I hear the Rasta's have more drive but still have the good turning ablitiy without it feeling supper loose

    I've had two retro fishes for the last two years...5'5" x 21" and 5'10" x 21" and swap out the Futures T1 and the Rasta keels pretty regularly over many sessions on both boards. I'm pretty confident if i were riding either one of those boards and didnt know which fins were on the board, i couldnt possibly tell the difference. Boards like the shape you posted above with any kind of keel fins aren't going to be super loose, nor were they meant to be. They both have TONS of drive. When you pump down the line on one of these boards you ACCELERATE.

    When i get hooked up and in sync with mine you can just feel the board feeding off the wave. Makes waist high waves fun.
