The Smik Hipster Twin Pin 8'0 Wood is just a case of history repeating itself. It’s almost impossible not to notice the performance that’s evolved from twin fins in the surfing world, with many of the biggest brands having one in their range and all carrying the heritage of the original Mark Richard design.

It's how it all started for us, a set of Mark Richard twins with a little nubster fin laying around and thinking how perfect a twinny would be for a SUP, helping loosen things up a bit.

With its fuller nose and moderately compact shape, the Hipster Twin Pin allows you to go shorter with added stability and glide. It doesn't feel awkward to paddle over large distances.

Mark Richards was onto something combining the hip in the outline with the 2+1 fin set up as it allows you to draw unparalleled tight arcs without letting go or losing speed.

The single concave feeds through a double and releases to a V out the tail to give a frictionless sensation of acceleration and drive coming out of a turn. Rail to rail transitions are some of the smoothest experienced, and the way the Hipster Twin feeds up the face makes everything seem easier.

It just feels like there’s a lot less drag, which equates to a sensation of speed. You really notice it when you put the board on rail and see it accelerate.

All of this results in longer surfs just because you’re just having way too much fun. It’s as simple as that.

SMIK hasn't re-invented the wheel on this one, but we've done a pretty fine rendition of it.

Being added alongside the original swallow tail version of the Hipster twin, is the twin pin version . It's a smalll subtle difference that actually makes quite a large difference in feel.

What it provides is

  • The ability to drive more vertically up the face.
  • smoother rail to rail transition
  • ability to pivot turn more vertically off the top. Rolling on the curves off the pin int he tail.
  • sits in the hollower part of wave a little better, a la when it's barrelling.
