Mark Richards 1980 Retro


Stephen Vanderhorst says:

I have a 1978 retro twin on my living room wall….a birthday present from my family. Mark’s twin fins are iconic and the resurgence of interest well deserved. He is a clever, talented and intelligent surfer and shaper who won four world titles on his own equipment. Hearing him speak of the ideas behind this 1980 retro model demonstrates his insight in hydrodynamic surfboard design tailored to those of us who are recreational surfers usually surfing small junky beach breaks. I wouldn’t mind having another one of his twin fins for bigger surf….next birthday perhaps.

How will those MR twin fins with trailer work on a board with a wide “normal” tail (not fish/swallow)? Specially thinking about on the Firewire Creeper.
