Looking at a twin fish for my upcoming boat surf trip in maldives in April next year. Need a board for small days if I get unlucky with swell.

Share your experience ! (living in OZ so any local shaper welcomed)

I cant speak highly enough about my Vouch Small Vish. Amazing little fish. You can cruise it or absolutely rip on the thing. Bullet proof constitution too. Pretty much all Ive ridden for over 12 months and it looks new.

Christenson. Works well in small waves but also has a good upper range. Quality construction.
Go as small as possible.

I didn't get on well with the McNeill Torus Twin.

I love my DVS fish.

If I lived anywhere near Corey Graham (Melbourne?).... would love to sample one of his.

This doesn't fall into the fish category, but when I was in the Maldives, I saw a few guys absolutely ripping on MR super twins. It looked like it was a pretty versatile board in that it performed well on both the smaller and bigger days.

Haven't tried one myself, but I'd like to get one now.

I think my next board will be a cool fish.

Love my TKF but its in need of some refinements. I keep feeling up RTTs but cant get over the alt construction.

Who else makes a modern retro?

RTTs can be ordered in PU.

Since OP was looking for a small wave fish I left out the DVS carbon/eps twin keel rocket fish which was the mind machine in 3-6' barrelling waves.
