The NewWave is already a legend among the wave boards. Customers and pro riders love it. And now, just following the obvious direction and development of the shapes, it was just a matter of time that master shaper Sebastian Wenzel found the perfect twin fin shape to put into production.
The new NewWave Twin Fin Team Edition will be available in August, and we are sure it will blow the minds of those lucky ones that get the chance to try it.
Fanatic Brand Manager Craig Gertenbach:“After personally trying these boards during a test session in Mauritius last October for the first time, I was blown away by how easy they are to ride, how close to the wave you can surf and the ease in which you can change direction during turns. We decided to take our team with the R&D on this new concept, which has certainly paid off as our NewWave Twin will definitely be one of the Twinsers on the market with the biggest wind/wave range. R&D members Klaas Voget (G-4) and 2007 PWA Wave Vice World Champion Victor Fernandez (E-42) led the development on this project with our shaper Sebastian Wenzel, once again Fanatic one of the only brands where team riders are not just marketing tools, but fully involved in the R&D process."
Klaas Voget (G-4):“We’ve done almost a year of R&D now for our new specials, the NewWave Twin and just gave a set of Twin Fins in production. The boards worked excellent in side- and side-offshore conditions with clean waves from the beginning, but in chop we’ve had some problems. We made a lot of changes and many prototypes with our Shaper Sebastian Wenzel and tested them in Brazil, Mauritius, Capetown, Pozo, Cabo Verde and on Maui – so almost all over the planet. Finally we got a board that also works nice in less perfect waves, for example in Victor´s home break in Almeria/Spain or my local spots on the north sea or the Baltic sea. If you are a bit more experienced waverider, it’s amazing how tight you can go in the bottom turn and how loose the boards feel in the top turn."
The NewWave Twin will be out in August in three sizes, 72, 78 & 84 liters as Team Edition only. They come with fins, which are designed from MFC especially for the NewWave Twin.
