We once again went nostalgic in creating this performance twin fin from the golden era of shortboard design. Jason Bennett developed the Cassette Deck to be used in the Vizsla Cosmic Creek at Salt Creek where Jason and the other surfer/shaper competitors were asked to shape and use their own rendition of the classic MR Twin Fin.
The board worked so well for Jason that he went on to win the event and decided to keep the hand shaped gem in his personal quiver. This year we all wanted to share this model with you by offering it in our eclectic line of Specialty boards. The beauty of the Cassette Deck model is that it creates and maintains speed with ease while handling more like a thruster rather than a Twin Fin. The bottom concave is vee all the way thru the tail and combined with an MR style fin template they give the Cassette Deck a very high-performance feel.
This model has old school down rails and a concave deck which tends to make the board feel thicker, so we recommend ordering this model 1/8” – 1/4” thinner than your normal small wave board. We also recommend ordering this model 2” – 4” shorter than your standard shortboard because of all that good volume it packs in a shorter rail line.
