THE EPS HYDRO TWINNY
It seems the twin fin has resurgence of late and there are many different versions on the market. The Hydro Twinny has a big point of difference in that it employs through the front two thirds a single concave with a pronounced 2 inch chine on the rail. The last third- a 3mm vee rises up out of the concave and runs out of the tail. The idea is when propelled it gets up like a Manly Hydro Foil and takes off with the vee and fins the steering mechanism.
The plan shape is pretty normal for a twin fin in that it has a widish hip up front with a parallel face hugging back half running into a moonish swallow.
Pretty well described above ,however it must be noted that this bottom shape is quite original and different to many others on the market that may look the same. The lift under the front foot that this bottom shape gives results in ridiculous speed and freedom punctuated with the vee that encourages the tail to sit down and play the steering wheel.
The rocker is pretty normal for a twin fin in that it is low entry with a mild flattish curve running out the tail. Perhaps what is worth noting is the nose profile has a vee shaped beak that delivers a little more foam forward that does not feel front heavy (because this is a twinny) which aids paddle and nose forgiveness.
The EPS Hydro Twinny is a stringerless design glassed with inegra biaxle and an S cloth wrap on the deck and another inegra biaxle combined with a standard 4 oz wrap on the bottom. The stiffening and strengthening agency of the biaxle inegra top and bottom renders carbon reinforcements not necessary and the stark white look can be displayed without loss of strength or indeed loss of twang. The fin boxes are futures and suggested fins are either the MR template for the rippers or the keels for the speedsters. A small fusion box clustered close to the twin fins is included for a little more sting through turns with a smaller trailor or keel employed. Solid black carbon in the moon (pretty standard in my boards) which protects the tips from being grinded away over time.
