Moo Customs have quickly made a name for themselves thanks to the twin fin revolution. Being a custom brand means they were able to start making the boards long before there was anything on the production market and already they have quite a following.
Due to this increased demand they have had to move premises, (an old dairy would you believe) and are please to welcome some new team members. Darren Mitchell and Dan Gardener. Both have just received their new twin fin customs and both are stoked with the boards.
“Turning was great and it really stood out for an onshore board to be able to turn the way it did, a solid bottom turn followed by a loose top turn and able to keep lots of control off the top of the lip, again I think this is probably due to the short length with fuller nose and volume right under my feet.
I honestly think this board is a great board for European conditions (and competitions!) and would most likely perform in cross-off conditions too, but I wouldn\’t know unless I got to try it. I would honestly say that it is in the top three of my favourite 85-90 litre boards that ive ever sailed and I think this is because of the fact that I actually managed to have fun and enjoy myself getting some nice jumps and rides at one of the most rubbish onshore locations in the U.K.! Basically opening up a whole new spot as a fun training ground!”
“Jumpin was super sweet, bit paranoid at first…due to the rather large board graveyard in my back garden, forgot about that fairly soon and boasted some rocket airs in the strong gust. Great fun sticken backies with such a short board, seems more controlable with its short compactness.
I was more concerned on the wave riding side of things and the first wave i got blew the shite out me mind, carved round into a super bowly section and the board worked soooooooooooooooooooooo feckin well!!! Rail held unbeleivably well and kept its speed in the cross on conditions until you hit the lip, and then the control once you hit the lip was savage, you notice all the rail being used from the tail to the nose giving unreal control, twas amazin!!!
Hittin the lip and throw the tail the whole round into a taka, sail out fin first or just continue on for another bottom turn it done it oh so well, so much craic. I never had so many front side turns in cross of condition before, made it feel down the line. Backside turns were no prob either, driving back on the heals while laying down the sail sent the board back never vertical when hittin the section. Was trying to throw some into shakas but needed more wind to pop the rotation rounds. This board can do any thing really….i\’m teachin it how to make tea…nearlly there!!!!”
