A Twintip that can keep up with Directionals

Postby Toby » Tue Aug 04, 2009 9:15 am

Eddy Lansing tested a new twintip setup for the first time during the PKRA Germany worldcup.

Overall he scored 5th.

I hope they can tune the board more and make it even better, since this would get more people into racing!

Not beatiful at all but very interesting as completely different design and riding style. I wonder how the unusual fins setup work and feel in riding... :roll:

That picture is nearly 10 month old.
Any update ? Any news about a production board ?

Yes the answer is obvious:

We are working on it and there will be a Race twin tip in the near Furture.

Armin got 2nd Place after me on a prototype Racedoor in Dahme.

HA, no kidding huh I was actually expecting that board to be in the dumpster since they made so many improvements on the raceboards and fins over the last 10 months. would be cool to see what you guys came up with we haven't seeen a twintip race in any events in the last year. you guys have any pics or keeping it secret? i know some guys here would actually prefer to race on twintips if they were competative at all.
