Captain Fin Tyler Twin + Trailer Especial - Turquoise
Single Tab = Futures Fin System Compatible
Template: Balanced—great for fast walls and responsive rail-to-rail twin carving.
The Tyler Warren designed Twin Especial is part of the Limited La Especial Collection from Captain Fin Co. It's a multi-colour solid fibreglass layup with a raked template for maximum down the line speed and smooth rail to rail surfing. Tyler also added a trailer fin for stability and more drive. This will perfect the glide of any twin fin board.
The Twin Fin configuration will make your surfboard fun, playful, and maneuverable. Twin fin setups are ideal for your shortboard fish and can even be fun in bigger waves. Twin fins offer a skatier feel and longer, more drawn out turns.
The sweep, or rake, is how far the front edge of a fin arcs backwards. Rake or sweep angle is a measurement that determines how far back the fin curves in relation to its base. Fins with a small rake (large offset) help propel the board, are very stable and predictable but are not ideal for making sharp fast turns. On the other hand, fins with a large rake angle and a small offset will allow your board to have a tighter turning radius, but are more “squirrelly” and playful.
The base length of the fin is the widest point of the fin, and sits flush with the board once installed. This length can affect how the board will respond to turns. Longer fin bases create trajectories for water to go past - so your surfboard will move faster. If you want to make sharp turns, however, look for a shorter fin base length.
