My 5’9″ MR x Mayhem California Twin Fin model which is a collaboration between Matt Biolos & myself. It’s 203/4″ wide, 2.54 thick. 33.5 Litres. I sprayed the rail & it was glassed by Nick Pope @popesurfboardglassing •In Mat’s words….. “A Modern, single to double concave, twin + trailer “Fish”, based off MR’s most popular modern shortboard…The SuperTwin. Mark allowed me the honor of tweaking his iconic #SuperTwin model to create a modern, user friendly, small wave weapon. We dramatically lowered the entry rocker, widened the nose and tail block, and added a couple inches of width to the overall outline, giving gobs of glide in gutless surf. We flattened the deck for stability, but retained MR’s classic speedy, down soft rails and his modern performance tail rocker…Ensuring it still turns proper and precise. Flat where it needs to be, but still curvy in the right spots, and skates along but still turns in tight spots. This is a Fish that you can grovel the small stuff, but still really rip on”. Fins set up is Twin Fin positioning using three sets of FCS 2 Plugs so you have the option of adding a small Stabilizer fin. @quiksilver @mikypicon @anothery @cidoubleyou @mikedurante @mikereilly1 @sammygosling @samueltgriffiths @yeahbranchy @mayhemsurfboards_mattbiolos @surfboardempire @lostsurfboards @catalystsanclemente @lostaustralia @lost_south_central @lost_indo @losthawaii @lost9193 @lostsurfboards_europe @riklove72 @fcs_surf @fiberglasshawaii @pearljam @slimesboardstore @sanbah_surf @bellsbeach_surfshop #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrtwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinsforever #mrxmayhem #mrxmayhemcatwin #mrxmayhemcaliforniatwin #mrxmayhemcaliforniatwinmodel

Some vision of Matt Biolos shaping in San Clemente & me shaping in Newcastle

Some vision of Matt Biolos shaping in San Clemente & me shaping in Newcastle. We are both shaping our Twin Fin collaboration model The “California Twin” / “CA Twin”. Matt explains the concept….. “Mark allowed me the honour of tweaking his iconic #supertwinmodel to create a modern user friendly small wave weapon. Beginning with MR’s #supertwin we dramatically lowered the entry rocker, widened the nose & tail block & added a coupe of inches to the width of the overall outline giving gobs of glide in gutless surf. Flattened the deck rocker a bit for stability, but retained MR’s classic speedy down soft rails & his modern performance Tail rocker… Ensuring it still turns proper & precise. This is a Fish that can grovel the small stuff, but still really rip on”. @slimesboardstore in Newcastle & @surfboardempire on the Goldy both have them in stock. A batch also just landed @realwatersports in North Carolina on the US East Coast. @mayhemsurfboards_mattbiolos @sashstocker @quiksilver @lostsurfboards @lostaustralia @kakek_slime @boardriderscoolangatta @boardriderstorquay @mikypicon @mikereilly1 @cidoubleyou @stephenisbelly @catalystmb @catalyst_sc @catalystshopdotcom @catalystsanclemente @cooperssurfaustralia @beach_beat @markrichardssurfboardsapparel #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshaping #markrichardsshapes #mrxmayhem #mrxmayhemcatwin #mrxmayhemcaliforniatwin #mrxmayhemcaliforniatwinmodel

Shaped blanks for Marc & Jesse Adam

Shaped blanks for Marc & Jesse Adam. Marc’s is on top, it’s a Bushranger model, 5’11”, 181/2″ wide & 23/8″ thick with a Thruster fin set up. Jesse’s is a Super Twin model, 5’7″, 19″ wide & 21/4″ thick. It will have twin fins up front & a small stabilizer fin in the tail. Both will have FCS 2 plugs & their dad Mick is glassing them in his backyard in the open air. ( No joke ). He has to wait for a still wind day so no grit or bugs land on the laminations. Then he waits for a windy day to sand them so the dust gets dispersed & he doesn’t blast his neighbours with sanding dust landing on their freshly washed clothing hanging on the Hills Hoist clothes line. @fcs_surf @barrell_head @jmanradshred #supertwin #markrichardssurfboards @pop_diddy @mayhemb3_mattbiolos

A custom EPS Super Twin with a stringer

A custom EPS Super Twin with a stringer. I shaped this out of a “US BLANKS” EPS blank which was imported by Burford Foam on the Gold Coast. It’s 5’10”, 191/4″ wide & 23/8″ thick. Glassed with a 6oz bottom & a 6/4 deck. Fin set up is Twins up front & a small stabilizer fin in the tail. Plugs are FCS 2. Decals are my old “ribbons” that I used to use on the bottom of the twin fins in the late 70’s & early 80’s. @usblanks @burfordblanks @fiberglasshawaii @fcs_surf #supertwin #twinfin #fcsfins #fcs2
