The all-new California Twin Pin is a natural extension of the wildly popular California Twin.
A design collaboration between the legendary, 4x World Champion surfer/shaper, Mark Richards and Matt “Mayhem” Biolos.
The California Twin, with its winged swallow tail, wide forward outline, low entry rocker and deep single to double concave bottom, quickly became a favourite for a wide array of skill level surfers. From up n coming Pros, to aging Bros, it’s been a resounding success, around the world.
As time goes on, multiple requests for customizing the design for greater performance and confidence in a wider range of waves, started coming from passionate Cali Twin converts.
The Cali Twin is the result of those custom orders and requests. A souped up and slightly sleeked out, all-around performance vehicle, with stock dims designed to be ridden 1-2” longer than the original Cali Twin.
Not a true step up, but more of a bridge between squatty/speedy fish and a proper performance shortboard, equally at home in punchy, stomach-high shoreys or running overhead reef passes and point breaks.
To do this, we began with the Cali Twin and…
-Lengthened 1”, subtlety increased nose rocker and gently pulled in the forward 1/3 of the outline.
-Added some thickness through the centre line, to maintain paddle power, but rolled the deck line, to maintain a modest rail.
-Pulled in the “hips” of the outline, between the feet, and changed the tail to its name defining, forgiving, rounded pin.
These changes make for a fast, forgiving and precise board, with a continuous curve outline that expands on the range of functionality of the original. What we did not change, however, was the iconic MR Twin+trailer fin layout, design and positioning, nor the wicked fast and fun, single to double concave bottom curves.
