Name: Mark Richards 1980 Retro Twin
Conditions: Knee to headhighFin setup: Glass Twin Fin
This is Mark Richards most popular Retro model and is a faithful recreation of one of Mark Richards favourite twin fins which was a 'magic' contest board, and was 6'2" by 20 ¼" by 2 ¾".
He shaped the original board early in 1980.
- the original outline template with a lot of forward area, making it a dream to paddle;
- the classic wing-swallow tail shape which reduces the tail area to give the board holding power through turns;
- a fluted wing which adds bite and alleviates slide when turning;
- a deep-V bottom which gets the board flowing from rail to rail.
It is fast, loose, and a 'blast from the past'. The feedback on this model is 100% positive with everyone remarking how well it goes today for a 30 year old design.
Set fins are standard, but we offer the custom order option of FCS Fibreglass Twin Fins and the size range is from 5'8" up to 6'8".
