Thanks for ID!
It’s looks like a gun(and it is I guess), but at 22 1/2” wide with all the curve in template I’m visualizing it starting to be useful in as little as ceiling high surf.. probably a couple months til I can use it here on west coast…. Cheers
Having more width allows for the curve to enable a longer surfboard the maneuverability to ride smaller waves yet still holding their own in bigger waves. Best of Both Worlds IMHO. These boards are 23" but only for a small part of them. This allows for the curve whereas if I locked myself in to 21-1/2" or 22" I would end up w/super narrow ends or an ugly, super parallel hotdog planshape. That's just reality. Pictured are Fountain of Youth's 9'0" & 9'6" that will ride chest high waves quite enjoyably and a lot more.

It's not about the Dim, it's about the CURVE.

Currently vacationing in points way down South. Took this sweetie out on her maiden voyage today.


I was straight up blown away. Blistering speed and hold. I was torquing bottom and top turns as hard as I could, not one hint of slippage or fins disengaging. It's been far too long since I've ridden a Twinzer. After two sessions today, I wonder why they're not the only type of board I ride?

100% agree. Connected w my 6’11 from Stu wave 1. Never looked back.

Right now I'm super stoked on a 11' Munoz Surftech Glider. Even when it's been miniscule at my favorite spots this board can pick up the smallest of ripples. This board has showed me that I don't need the latest and greatest or continually switch boards, I just need to find boards I connect with.

A couple weeks ago I picked up a Hydrodynamica Mini Simmons from XTR. Classic mini w/glass on Gep keels. I previously had a Jon Wegener shaped one that I liked, but it was a bit too chunky (5'6 x 23 x 3). This one is slimmed down and feels really good (5'6 x 22 x 2 11/16). There's something special about planing hulls.

I have one as well

Amazing board!

It can handle some size too. I surfed it well overhead in France
