When you are considering a twin fin surfboard in Australia, it is important to understand how the construction, specifications and materials can make a real difference to your surfing experience.
What Makes Twin Fin Surfboards Great?
The right fin configuration on your board has an unbelievable effect on the response and performance – especially with stability, control, and direction. Twin fin surfboards offer manoeuvrability and speed, perfect for small-medium surf. The way the board and fins are constructed is seriously important – and the more experienced you become, the more you will understand the best set up for you and your style.
There are a few things to look for and understand about fin shape, size, and construction.
The bigger the fins, the more hold you will have in the surf, and the smaller they are, the looser they will feel. Stiff fins give a quick response in terms of direction, but less flexibility can make them less forgiving. The way the fins are connected to the board itself makes a difference – a long base helps produce more drive, but a shorter base makes it easier to turn in quick arcs. The sweep, or rake, of the fins will influence the speed of turns – more rake causes longer, sweeping turns.
One of the most prolific shapers in Australia is Dick Van Straalen. Based in Burleigh Heads, QLD, he creates a range of different types of board, like twin fin surfboards in Australia and we love finding these hand-made boards for our customers. The tradition of one-off craftsmanship that DVS brings to the surf culture in Queensland is why his twin fin surfboards are so popular, especially for those who enjoy small waves and long points. If you’re looking for something different when it come to surf gears, we also sell stand up Paddle boards on our website!
