What the Misfit Shapes site says about the Beach Cloud:
‘The second of our 2016 ‘Modern Cloud Control’ Collection with an overall design emphasis on free-flowing, progressive shapes, the ‘BEACH CLOUD’ is the modern take on a classic twin fin feel.
BOTTOM CONTOURS/ROCKER – There is subtle single concave through the entry running in to double concave through the mid, to slight vee in front of fins, exiting with more pronounced vee out through tail. This enables ease of paddling and glide over fat sections, and the double/vee really frees the tail up for fluent carves, release and classic highline arcs.
Rocker in tail is very flat with a subtle amount of nose lift. Having the flat tail rocker balances out the vee in tail and the subtle nose rocker lifts the nose out of water to help with the performance of the board.
Rails – Hard rail line from tail up past front fins then softening as rail gets to the nose. Having the hard edge running up past the fins allows for solid hold and stability on those highlines, but also offsets having the vee through tail which would make the twinny too loose if edge wasn’t there. The softer rails upfront just add forgiveness and ease in rail-to-rail transitions.
Overall, the rails are medium/low for extra hold in wave at higher speeds, but it also adds some forgiving qualities that all fishes should have.
Outline – Like classic twins, the board has a fuller nose into a proportionally curvy outline down to the tail. No straight lines in this board as we designed this twinny with modern surfy surf in mind, while staying true to the speed, flow and highline attributes of classic twin fin approach.
Again, ride short, ride with style, ride at a million miles an hour (doesn’t quite rhyme as much as we’d had liked…).’
What people are saying about it:
“The Misfit Beach Cloud is a curvy classic twin fin perfect for modern fish performance. Ride it short and with plenty of style and speed.” – Boardcave
“Having a twin fin in your quiver opens up a new world of fun when the waves are small and you’ve got nothing better to do than hit the water anyway. While this Misfit Beach Cloud surfboard is a classic fish, you’ll find that it won’t let you down when things get slightly more critical. There’s more than a touch of rocker to keep you from impaling the ocean on steep drops, and the refined concaves (subtle single concave through the entry running in to double concave through the middle) will keep you flying.” – surfd.com
“The beach cloud is a twin fin that is just awesome. Single to double concave to V out the tail, meant to get you through summer with speed and style.” – thelonewolfs.com
“The BC loves to draw a line with plenty of flow but enough performance to excite you in parts of a wave some twinnys may not enjoy.” – user misfitkiid on Instagram
