The Twin Fin Surfboard has a much longer history than you think. Dating back as far as mid to late 1940's with Bob Simmons explorations into planning hulls and utilised parallel twin keels to help trim along the face of a wave with more projection and control instead of controlled drag. Since then, the twin fin has gone through many variations making their biggest impact in the late 70's when Australian Surfing Icon Mark Richards also known as MR, started dominating professional surfing with his re-invented twin fin design. From 1977 to 1981 Twin Fins were the pinnacle of performance surfing design. Twin fin surfboards come in many shapes and sizes these days, including performance orientated designs like the DHD Twin Fin, alternative designs such as the Gary McNeill - Mini Pip, classic retro fish like Panda Surfboards - Astro Zombie and the performance hybrid style like the Haydenshapes - Misc.
