What Mark Richards Surfboards website says about the Super Twin:
‘The Super Twin is the most popular and versatile model in my range. It is my ultimate small wave high-performance board and is the model I choose to ride most of the time. It is fast, loose and really easy to turn.
- a single to double concave bottom for speed;
- a wider template with more nose area for floatation and paddling power;
- the original winged swallow tail from my retro twin fins.
The fin set-up for the Super Twin is FCS MR TF Glassflex twin fins with a small rear stabilizer. The board can be ridden with one of three fin configurations:
- as a twin fin only;
- as a twin fin with a small rear stabiliser;
- as a twin fin with a larger stabiliser eg. FCS M2 for bigger surf.
This board performs like a faster, looser thruster; it’s tons of fun in surf from 1 to 6 feet. Kelly Slater, Martin Potter, Luke Egan, Julian Wilson, Tom Carroll, Titus Kinimaka, Brian Keaulana and Sunny Garcia all have MR Super Twins in their board quivers.’
What people are saying about it:
Fantastic all-rounder board. Super stable and floaty, will catch pretty much anything from tiny mush to 6ft chargers. Not as maneuverable as your standard thruster but flies through sections and is a perfect board for those transitioning from a mal to a shortboard or for someone wanting a single board for multiple conditions. – user James on SurfScience.com
I find it hard to Paddle, i don’t know wether its because of the board or if i’m not paddling hard enough but i find it easier just push off of the board then actually paddling to catch a wave. It has excellent speed. Catching the waves is the hardest part, although i am able to catch maybe 3 waves in a set standing up and moving around is great though. – user Tahni on SurfScience.com
The size range is from 5’8″ up to 7’6″.
