What Mark Richards Surfboards website says about the Free Ride Twin Fin:
‘This is a limited edition signed and numbered collectors item, available only directly from Mark Richards at Richards Surf in Newcastle. It is a hand-made, exact replica of the very first MR twin fin that I rode in the classic movie Free Ride.
The Free Ride Twin Fin has the original decals, intricate deck and bottom spray, hand-made 3 coloured fins and gloss and polish finishof the original board.
This board started the multi-fin revolution and my surfing on it at Off The Wall in Hawaii completely changed the perception of high-performance surfing. Shaun Tomson states “it was the beginning of the age of acceleration”. I won the Stubbies and Bells events on this board, which set me on track to win 4 World Titles.’
- a full pointed nose with maximum thickness carried forward;
- a classic wing swallow tail shape which reduces tail area to give the board holding power through turns;
- a fluted wing which adds bite and alleviates slide when turning;
- a deep V-bottom which gets the board flowing from rail to rail.
