"Twin Keel"這組Fin (板舵),由型格滿溢的神級衝浪選手Rob Machado所精心設計而成,對於這組Fin (板舵)的開發,Rob Machado是這樣地說道:"...我第一次體驗Twin Fin是在我們拍攝Seedling時,當時我使用的板舵被稱為「straight backs」,是由Larry Gephart精心手工打造而成。這些Fin (板舵)以其卓越的工藝和迷人的外觀而聞名,正是這樣的特點激發了我的設計靈感;且在那之後我開始研究各種類型的板舵..."。

Rob Machado在設計"Twin Keel"時的發想,是在傳統板舵上引入更多創新元素,如:在保留原有寬底座的基礎上,在尾端增加了更多曲線,以追求更高的靈活性和速度。對於"Twin Keel",Rob Machado是如此形容地"...Twin Keel讓我愛不釋手的原因是透過這些創新設計,有效提升衝浪時的轉向強度和靈活度,在面對各種浪況時,具有足夠的穩定性和操控感..."。

"Twin Keel"這套Fin (板舵),除了主要是Rob Machado特別為了搭配Too Fish浪板所特別打造,另外,也是Rob Machado希望能打造一款多功能且適用於各種類型的浪板的Twin Fin。Rob Machado說:"...我對"Twin Keel"的成果感到非常滿意!!事實上,我已經在Sunday上多次使用過這組Fin,最近也在實驗將其應用在其他浪板上。在過去一年的Fin開發過程中,Twin Fin讓我發現其所應用範圍比我們所想像的更廣泛,因此我鼓勵每位追浪浪人要保持創意,不要害怕嘗試新事物..."!

The first set of keels I rode were on a Skip Frye fish around the time we were filming Seedling - they were hand foiled Larry Gephart fins that I think were referred to as 'straight backs'. Basically, they looked like plywood that someone cut out and foiled; they were beautiful. And that's what originally sparked my imagination as far as fishes and keels go.

I got into experimenting with variety of fish shapes shortly after and that was when my approach towards keel fins really started.

My focus today is on having a blend of performance interwoven into the traditional feelings of a keel fin set. For example, I've moved away from super wide bases and towards more curve in the trailing edge. Overall, my goal with this new fin set today was to find something that gives you all the positive sensations of having a traditional keel, but toned down so it isn't so trackey and drivey - I wanted something that would loosen up and liven up in the pocket when you want them to.

What I love most about this new fin set is the way it holds a line and feels locked into speed sections, but it also pivots off of a track and livens up in the pocket when you want to. A lot of this comes from the way I designed the foil.

I designed this new fin with the Too Fish in mind, but also with the intent to make something so versatile that it can work in any twin fin shape you like. To be honest I've been riding them in the Sunday a lot as well as the Midas, and also in some twin fin step ups I've been experimenting with recently.

The lesson I've learned over the past year of developing these fins is that there are more uses for twin fin keels than we think - so get creative. Don't be scared.

Very happy with how these fins came out and I'm stoked to see them at Surf Shops everywhere.
