Hand Shaped by The Sultan of Speed!
Derek Hynd’s extraordinary addition to the twin fin design stream differed dramatically to MR’s deep V style. The original TF shaped DH concept features prominent concaves through the fin area, a refined, thinner beaked nose line (heralding the no-nose era), and a stabilizer fin (foreshadowing the tri-fin).
To swooping arcs and snaps, DH added 360º foam bounces and even footstraps for more adventure. In this second coming, TF’s influences were Bertleman and Liddell, for DH, Smithy and Ron Woodward. Derek’s brand of aggressive pocket surfing took him to No. 7 in the World, twice.
