Twingle ride report?
Send me your dinged, damaged, and yellowed.
Nothing new to report on the twin-gle fin setup.
I had ridden the board as a twinglefin and liked it, but never got very comfortable with it. All that volume, and length, and the fat rails made it hard to manhandle the board, so I would pass it over time after time. It almost felt like too much board for me.
Putting in the rail channels, and the quads, was an attempt to make it a bit more user friendly for me, as an incentive to spend some time with it. Like many here, my surfing time is limited, so there is a constant battle between wanting to ride a familiar, comfortable shape, vs a new, different, somewhat uncomfortable board for the sake of exploring new designs.
I have been riding quads, so I thought that might make it feel a bit more familiar. And rail channels were added to make handling it easier.
And those changes have had a big impact for me, I now feel comfortable grabbing the board and paddling out into the little bit bigger south swell stuff we've been getting lately. The quads are working good, I really love the feel and handling of a quad, it suits my style really well. I feel like I'm finally starting to get a handle on riding this one. But I'm talking 4 short sessions in good but very crowded surf.
I have some beautiful twinglefins for this board, and eventually I no doubt will switch back to them, for comparison sake.
