Here's Robert his self, hand-jiving an estimated 220 pounds through an incredibly tiny mush burger with ease this morning. He's going to claim its closer to 200 lbs, but I think his scale is broken. wink Putting his feet on top of what he shaped, his money where his mouth is, etc etc. BroFish Twonzer.

ACE was recommending low aspect fins for their bonzer and Zinger designs on those midlengths. I think in part because of the prevailing conditions at Sunset Cliffs where they were centered. He has previously commented about thinking that there's considerable overlay between channels and fins, enough so that he favored his 6-shooter (quad + canards) on flat bottoms over doing channels.

So now we've been seeing the NPjr twin single, and we know that the use of channels allows for the use of smaller fins and that channels add hold as well as adding drive, so this design has taken that track further by skipping altogether the twin single + channels combo that would have been an intermediary step between the two. The other thing is that Roberts has the main fins way further back when compared to the NPjr design, which engages them even more.


One thing I love about Ace is that he does his own thing. Trends in Boards doesnt make much of a difference in what he is doing with his designs. I have looked at some of his new work and he has a couple of boards with a deep, deep channel. I would say more of a concave in the tail pairing it up with his single keel fin.

I haven't been on here in years, and this is what I find.....

Awesome!

The twonzer is a great concept. As mentioned, the Eaton Zingers have been around for over 20 years, and I know others have used the concept.

This is from Empire in the U.K.

I made loads in various configurations under my Royal name as well, and they all worked insanely well.

It's great to see Roberts playing with it. Looks like fun to me!

I went by Roberts yesterday, and wow. Just wow. The dude is so amazingly stocked on surfing and design. We talked fins, channels, rockers, I saw many of the boards that are in these pics, felt them up, ooh'd and aww'd over a bunch of cool stuff around his shop, and then he says, "here, this one is mine. Go ride it before the wind picks up." I jammed to a little crappy spot that looked like shit, but I haven't surfed in over 2 months, so I went out. Damn, a 5'11" in this gutless junk is just wrong. The board needed a good wave, I was was sure. Little bump jumps up and whoa! The board worked right into it, and just made section after section. My back foot was in front of the pad, too. Still turning and feeling the drive from the fin set up and the whole sheebang. Paddle back, another one, and on and on. I was gonna just get wet, and ended up getting a really fun session in with 4 guys who never caught much at all. I almost felt bad for them. There was Wavestorm guy, the longboarder, the dude on the fish, and the ripper. All didn't make waves nearly as long as mine, nor did they collectively catch as many, and I'm 10 pounds overweight and haven't surfed in a long time. I'll be ordering one. Thanks Robert for putting some stock back into my surfing. (Bonzer type stuff really makes sense to me, and Robert is doing a lot of cool stuff with bottoms and fins that I'm familiar with.)
I then went to see GWS and ordered a Bonzer from Malcolm, who happened to be there. Hell of a damn fine day in Ventura yesterday.

That one's sick. Rob had done one with tail kinda similar, inspired by his Diamond Fish. He started out with a cut WD3 and then shaped in the tail and channels. WD rocker and those channels with the fins has got to be lightening.

I've got one in glassing. Considering it's a 7'3" midsize I probably won't post a picture of it. Kind of curious to see how it will go on a longer board.
