Looks like Pavones to me
Yeah, the first part looks like it's Pavones (though, I've never surfed that part of the country). I mistakenly clicked in at 3:00 in where the footage is at Escondida, which was the same as a shorter video floating around that's only in that zone. I should have watched the whole vid before typing.

I'm also pretty sure that's Pavones. Definitely made me jones to go back.

Have to say I'm very impressed with this board. I think these videos do a good job of showing how well the board works backside for a twin and how well the board works in general for the average surfer. I've ridden A LOT of twin fins and I'd say this one is hands down the most versatile and generally enjoyable model I've had to date.

Borrowed this 6'8" X 20&3/4" X 2&5/8" channel bottomed round tail twin from Hugo from Hughies surfboards. Such a nice guy. Option to buy it if I want. It's one of his personals so may not be quite enough foam for me but with more good 4' plus waves and the local points firing up again next week will give it a run.
Paulownia and cork with no fibreglass. Marine varnish to seal it and bio resin for the fin boxes and leash plug. Probably try some Asher Pacey twins and also the flex twins in my avatar pic.
Hard to make out the channels as it's twilight of a rainy evening as the low that was Cyclone Seth goes past not far North of us.
Not my lawn.

No resin? Is the paulwonia chambered or skins? If skins, how are they atached to blank without resin? If chambered what's the weight?

Post a ride report when you can.

Paulownia skins with glue applied and then vacuum bagged onto an eps blank.
