    Twinzer

    Anybody who surfs twinzers, would be interested in hearing your experiences, especially if you've ridden them on a shortboard (not a fish). I like boards that make their own speed (not into having to constantly pump). I like the speed of quads, but sometimes feel like they are too stiff. Was thinking of trying a twin fin, but have heard that they are prone to spinning out. Then I thought why not a twinzer-- seems like it would have more hold than a twin but be looser than a quad. Though it does seem strange to me that you don't see them very often, which leads me to think that maybe they really aren't that great (you actually see a lot more twin fin shortboards, but I wonder if this is just because of nostalgia). Anyway, if anyone has ridden one, would appreciate any feedback.

    I used to ride them a lot. They are really loose and fun if set up right, just don't expect to be doing any man carves with it.

    If you've ever surfed a twin, how would you compare it the twinzer? Does it provide a lot more hold or do you think you might as well go for the full on twin fin if you want to go in that direction?

    Only twins I have surfed have been retro styled fish and hulls and all the twinzers I had were high performance short boards, so not really a good comparison. I think the twinzer will provide more hold, but it all depends on the size of fins you are using.

    Either way, get your rails foiled fairly sharp and it should compensate for any lack of hold there may be.

    go to Swaylocks and search twinzer, there are several long threads and quite a bit of info including comparisons to quads and twins
