Since the release of the Voodoo Redux we have been interested in how the model would work as a twin fin, as its shape lends itself aesthetically to work as a Twin Fin. Many of our customers ride the Voodoo redux with twin plus trailer and love it. This inspired my curiosity to develop the model into a Twin specific model as we were laking this in our range of board designs. After 2 years of development and testing by our team and staff the REDUX TWNNR is here!
Taking the rocker from the Voodoo Redux we flattened the curve 1/4 inch in the nose and 1/8 in the tail creating extra drive and more of a sweet spot, we left the bottom shape exactly the same as the Voodoo Redux (single concave through the nose to centre then into to single double between the feet and fin area and Vee exiting off the tail.) This bottom shape is found in the majority of our small wave designs, an exciting super fast and drivey concave with the Vee for release and ease of laying the board on rail. The outline has been tweaked to suit the Twin Fin design moving the flyer back 2 inches to accomodate for perfect Twin Fin placement and at the same time widening the tail area slightly for more flow down the line. The flyer behind the fins quickly creates a narrower tail, with a pulled in deep swallow tail that gives the REDUX TWNNR plenty of hold and control.
We wanted to pack a little extra volume in this board so we went for a slight twist of old school, adding a beak nose, pushing some volume forward. Keeping the deck roll flatter and bringing the volume further out toward the rail giving the extra volume we were looking for to make the REDUX TWNNR paddle better and keep that natural flow down the line. Then by dropping or pinching the rail shape late we created a rail still super responsive and with plenty of hold. In doing this we have nailed the perfect balance of extra volume without losing any performance.
The REDUX TWNNR is a modern spin on an old classic, with all the characteristics of an old school twin vibe but adding the modern bottom contours, rails and rocker we have created a super spicy smooth and exciting board to ride, you will be surfing faster and with more flow and enjoying the freedom of a Twin Fin with confidence! Explore the limits of high performance Twin Fin surfing with the REDUX TWNNR.
You should ride the REDUX TWNNR with approx. 1/2-2 litres more volume than your shortboard and 4-5 inches shorter, depending on your skill level. We also recommend using a larger but more upright fin template such as the EN Twin, Britt Merrick Twin or Chippa Wilson template from Captain fin Co. If you are looking for a more traditional approach try small keels such as the K2 keel from Futures.
