It’s that pendulum swing that did it; twinnys are just different animals out in the water.

When I first laid eyes on G’s new twinny lying there on the grass I knew the wall had fallen. It was a Steve Lis style keel-finned fish shaped by Dain Thomas of Sea Surfboards (Byron Bay). It took a few weeks to save up the cash before I could throw down the measly $600 for my own custom, forking out a little more for the volan. Within a few years these master-crafts were going for $1200 and soon after the Sea dried up. Those that know, know and lament the passing.

Laid over on a rail, the two big keel fins cut great arcing swathes through the wave face at speed. These great arcs drawn out at speed made me feel like I was riding the board shape’s namesake. No, hang on, not riding something like a fish… it was a fish – alive and writhing. As my relationship developed with the this creature I began to understand that it would be best to defer to experience – the fish knows, just go with it.
