"Fast & Loose" celebrates Mark Richards and the radical lineage of twin-fin surf craft

by Surfer Magazine
The film tells the story of the modern performance twin through the lens of Australian icon Mark Richards, who found inspiration in the boards of Reno Abellira, shaping tutelage in Dick Brewer and created a design all his own that he surfed to four straight world titles.

To this day, Richard’s feat of making his own boards and surfing them to such success stands apart as one of the greatest achievements of all time surfing. But what’s perhaps more impressive is the way that twin-fin designs have evolved in the aftermath, reemerging in modern surf culture as the go-to craft for those looking to balance performance surfing with high-speed, skatey fun.
