“A fast, loose and incredibly fun modern high-performance twin fin”

Price: $880
Dimensions: 5’6″ x 19 1/4″ x 2 1/4″

Overview:
Before the new model came out MR made a couple of demos for myself and Mick and the 5’6 went so amazing that even though I definitely didn’t need any more boards, I had to buy it off him. The Super Twin 2 is an updated model of MR’s all time favourite board with deeper a flatter deck, increased foam in the rails, wider nose area and deeper concaves. All of this makes the board faster, looser, with more paddle power; adding up to a more small-wave focused board, perfect in anything from 1-4ft.

Despite these changes the new model still has fairly low rails and medium rocker so it has a really high-performance, sharp feel to it in clean, steep waves. You will also notice the amazing amount of hold the big tin fins create once they’re locked in through a rail turn.

The Super Twin 2 is set up with 3 FCSII plugs to be ridden as either a straight twin fin or with a stabiliser and the MR FCS set is the obvious choice to use in it. Personally, I prefer mine with the stabiliser in the back plug unless the surf is tiny.

I’m such a big fan of the Super Twin 2 that it was one of only two I took with me on a recent trip to Europe and the board went epic the whole time (until I hit an iceberg in Iceland)
