Luke Young Twin Fin Fish “Mahi 2″ (5’6”)
The brand new model from Luke Young Surfboards for 2017/2018
Finding its place between your grovel board and standard shortboard, the Mahi 2 will bring the fun back to your sessions.
Capable of surfing vertically, this twin fin shortboard will offer more than most “retro” fish surfboards. The foiled out (thinner) tail and rails in the rear of the board give responsiveness and the ability to sink the rail. This allows you to push and drive through turns harder like you would be used to from a shortboard.
The vector net tail and carbon strip additional stringer increase stiffness and give the board a responsive feel under foot.
This isn’t to say that the Mahi 2 is without the stability, glide and speed expected from a twin fin fish – far from it. The wide point is ahead of centre and the entry rocker is relaxed. The rails are full and the deck flat under the chest, giving great paddle speed and wave-catching ability.
On the underside, there is a single concave in the front half of the board, directing water flow and providing lift and speed. This splits towards the rear of the board to a double concave with the stringer line getting progressively higher than the rail line. This helps split the flow of water separately through the fins and increases the rail rocker line in the tail, providing a high performance shortboard feel.
Blending high performance with speed and flow, this board will fill a gap in most quivers – easy wave catching, lots of speed and flow and the ability to drive through turns better than your grovel board.
