    I’m curious if anyone rides a twinzer as their daily.

    Does anyone have any good or bad experiences with twinzers in 7’ plus boards over single or 2 + 1 setups?

    I rode a 8’0” Jim Hines twinzer fo a while. It was his personal board so I had to give it back, but that board was a rocket ship.

    I have a 7-0 Hynson twinzer that just flies. Haven't ridden it in years because I'm riding boards much shorter now, but now that I'm reminded of it, I'll have to pull it out of the garage and go for a flight. The combination of the twinzer setup, like a jib and mainsail, plus the hard rails results in a board that's almost too fast when it gets going.

    I ride a 9' Kane Garden twinzer fish shaped by Stu Kenson. It's my go to board when things get bigger than average on the EC. Fast acceleration for beach break is key.

    I’ve had a couple twinzers from Wayne at Oakfoils, they went really well. Very fast with control, loose but with drive. One of my favorite fin setups when done right. The ones Stu Kenyon has on his IG look great

    Twinzers are my favorite - loose, fast, but controllable. I ride my Mabile Honey Badger Twinzer 6'6 all the time. When in doubt take it out.

    You guys are terrible... I remember wanting to try a twinzer years (decades...) ago, and then putting it on the back burner. Now I find myself checking them out again online, looking at older Stu Kensons for sale...

    TheBoardSource had a nice one recently, I think it was brand new.
