Rad..let us know how it goes.

Such a doof, I don't even know what size / conditions would be preferred for this board. I'm assuming not too much overhead. And not really groveling either..??.. average beach break stuff in California?

Does not appear suited to groveling

Weird. Worked for me last night. Board looks sick. My opinion is these twins are in fact not made for groveling, but for good waves. You'll be surprised what if can handle. I'd surf my akila twin, that is a bit more pulled in, in good sized barrels.

I created my current design around 1985 at T&C , placements and size of fins upgraded 1/8" over all these years .

We had a Very small winter and my Australian Jr National Champ rode mine thru that whole winter .

Yes. They work great in small waves, and ultimately depends on the outline.

But Hawaii small waves isn't real small waves. I see you guys call a head high wave small
