· A SEXY & VERSATILE COLLABORATION ·

CI Surfboards focus has always been performance and quality through hard work, innovation, and originality. Well, guess what...They did it again and they add-up some spiciness to the formula! The result?  TWIN PIN Signature Series.

Born from the collaboration between Britt Merrick and Mikey February, whose style is already recognized among the bests in the world, this twin-finned pintail will perform as the swiss knife for waves. Britt and Mikey will have you covered with this beauty that has all the fun twin feels but with the hold and projection you need so you can be cleared from missing a third fin or trailer. Talking about versatility, the Twin Pin is designed as an all-rounder, which helps rip in anything from poor little waves to double overhead breaking walls.

 

 Be Ready. Your Surfing is About to Get Soaring! 

 

This is how CI specifies its design: From the nose and toward the back, the bottom is flat, then to a slight roll, and vee in the back half, which creates a buttery board that is both responsive and solid.

· TWIN PIN... YOU SEXY THING ·

Mikey February is the man in the portrait in this first episode for the series Sonic Souvenirs by Vans where he lets us tag along his journey from the roots of South African art, music, culture and surfing projecting to the rest of the world. In this first approach, we accompany him while he travels up and down the East and West coast of South Africa, through a visual and spiritual journey and reconnection with home and his natural environment. 


· A COUPLE OF TIPS AND A BIT MORE ·

Most people ride the Twin Pin at least ⅛” thicker than their shortboard since the rails are low.

Britt designed a hand foiled signature twin fin set  to fit between a keel and upright fin to best perform with this CI Twin Pin providing the right balance of drive, hold and maneuverability, and flow.

Britt Merrick himself has another tip for you: "If you ride the Twin Pin in larger than average surf, you may want more gold and the Al Merrick Keel is great for that. I do the same if rincon is double over head or more. But 90% of the time our new fin will suit most people."

Depending on what you want to do, ride and feel, the Twin Pin can be ridden with various dimensional approaches. Check it:

  • Mikey February surfs a 6'0" shortboard and likes his Twin Pins at 5'9" and 5'11" to suit any conditions around the world. 
  • Tanner Gudauskas likes his the same length as his normal shortboard for Trestles.
  • Britt Merrick likes to ride his Twin Pins at Rincon a couple of inches longer than his regular shortboards.
