The sleek, versatile twin-finned pintail Channel Islands / Al Merrick 'Twin Pin' Surfboard is a collaboration between Britt Merrick and one of the world’s most stylish surfers, Mikey February. The two wanted to create a performance board that had all the fun twin feels but enough hold and projection to free you from ever wishing for a third fin or trailer. Designed as an all-rounder, it helps you rip in anything from small waves to double overhead rifling walls.

The Twin Pin can be ridden with various dimensional approaches according to what you want to do, ride, and feel. Mikey February surfs a 6’0” shortboard and likes his Twin Pins at 5’9” and 5’11” to suit any conditions around the world. Tanner Gudauskas likes his the same length as his normal shortboard for Trestles, and Britt likes to ride his Twin Pins at Rincon a couple of inches longer than his regular shortboards.
For maximum performance, Channel Islands recommend pairing the board with an upright twin or keel fin set up. Hiatus offer a range of upright twin fin and modern performance keel set ups from the likes of Futures, Captain Fin Co or collaborative fins from Album with brands such as True Albums or Alkali. There are plenty to choose from and experiment with. Plus leashes and deck grips too.
