I got a canyon twin fin fish as my first surfboard. When I first started I thought it was decent just the tips on the tail would crack very easily. I still ride it with the same fins and everything if it's a soft and crappy day. It is a pretty fun shape and it was super cheap. It is no where near the same quality as my other boards but for a first board it's alright. http://vintagesurfboard.net/canyon.html <---- I don't think it is right to rip off the classic companies though just to make a profit. It just ruins the company.
