Joshua Keogh Salsa Twin Review

What Joshua Keogh says about the Salsa Twin:

‘The Salsa Twin is a collaboration between myself and Jasson Salisbury. Coming into winter and having spent the best part of 12 months exclusively riding the Monad, Salsa wanted something with a bit more length and paddle power to tackle the winter swells. Having ridden a lot of round tails whilst living in Indonesia he was keen to explore that avenue again but didn’t want to disengage from the feelings he was getting on a twin fin. The first iteration of the Salsa Twin was May 2017 and since then the board has evolved to become arguably the most versatile design I make.

It’s a relatively simple design. The outline is a continuous clean curve, It has a pretty mellow rocker and reasonably uncomplicated bottom countours with some Vee around the back foot. The rails are reasonably full and not that dissimilar to a contemporary shortboard. There are 4 channels under the back foot set within the vee, this interaction is one of the most pivotal components of the design.’

The first ride of Joshua Keogh’s Salsa Twin went well. Well worth the wait.

This is a strong and beautifully crafted channel bottom board with cedar stringer, cream pigment and reinforced tail patches. I’m riding it with Futures EN and it was head-high waves today. The foam is perfectly distributed and the weighting is awesome. Smooth confident riding! What a machine.
