Kellen Ellison surfing a new model, the Roberts Bro-Fish Twonzer

I'm still trying to come to grips with PhotoBucket attempting to extort money from me for third party hosting, so please forgive. You can click on the PNGs of Kellen surfing and get them to display I believe. I'm running out of patience trying to get them to display above.

This "Twonzer" setup has been years in the making. Robert and I have talked about this dozens of times. Rob rode a Bonzered Dream Machine that was my personal and was intrigued. Finally, he went for it. It's part Twinzer, part Bonzer, and the rear fin placement is part Mckee quad. He made a couple of them and turned a few team guys loose on them and the feedback from both the riders and observers has been super positive. Super fast, positive and loose.

Now if I can just get my FCS Bonzer fins back...

saw this on Robert's IG. His fin placement is interesting.

I tried this on a mini simmons with both sets of bonzer canards. felt a little too stiff (unheard of for a mini), so I took the first set of canards out and it felt much better.

I've often considered the combo of twonzer+ toed-in channels, but never had the balls to go for it.

If the channel has any cant to it then adding a canted Future fin to that cant could have an effect.

fun looking board!
Love the outline and channels...
The main fins look really far off the rail.
Did they try the fins in multiple places before settling on that?
I would have put the mains out on the rail more and moved the canards forward a hair.
BUT, I am nobody. Certainly Roberts knows what he's doing... I'd love to pick his brain about fin placement.
Sweet looking board either way

Yeah, I don't know what to tell you. This is my first experience using this site. I'm having a few problems. Maybe try and hit the links and go to cube upload yourself?

GWS,

erBB only lets you do what appears to be six images per post; everything else in your syntax and upload looks a-okay.

Stock photos of hind leg initated motions.

My thinking on the layout is that it would probably work with even smaller runners. I was considering using a small keel instead of a high aspect fin for the mains.
