The new DHD Surfboards: Twin Fin Asher Pacey
Today we want to talk to you about the new Twin Fin releases from the Australian brand DHD this summer. It’s the new collection of Mini Twin Fins and Twin Fins from DHD Surfboards. A small delicatessen that comes from the hands of the prestigious international surfer Asher Pacey.
1. The shaper behind the DHD surfboards
Darren Handley, creator of DHD surfboards, grew up in Gold Coast. A unique place in the world with some of the best waves in the world. This great variety of waves let Darren perfect his abilities as a shaper. Today we could say that he shapes some of the best boards in the world. Boards used by the biggest “pros” from the surf world circuit like Mick Fanning, Stephanie Gilmore, Jack Freestone or the recent incorporation in DHD of Owen Wright.
2. Expert reviews: Asher Pacey
The DHD Mini Twin is the retro fish that Asher Pacey uses. A board made for the classic surfer that is looking for a retro board with a two fin system.
Asher Pacey pro surfer “Having the point breaks here on the coast it’s pretty easy to ride different boards and play around. I was riding quads but it was a natural progression to try something a little more lively, a little more loose … and I haven’t looked back since.”
3. Testing Asher Paceys DHD Mini Twin
A test run was done during Zierbenas Surf Film Festival. Out of all the boards you could try, there was Asher Paceys Mini Twin. This is what Mikel Aramendi told us in an exclusive for Single Quiver after trying it.
4. The Surfboards material
The famous brand from the Australian shaper Darren Handley combines the best aspects from the two commonly used materials: fiberglass and epoxy. Handley called his new creation “EpoxyCore”. The same Darren said that the trick has distributing the weight. A distribution that gives the greatest control over the board to bury the rail and give the exact and necessary control to complete the maneuver.
Tested by world champion Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore and the pro surfer Jack Freestone with magnificent results.
5. The video from Asher Pacey: Twin Fin Addiction
Asher Pacey is a declared Twin Fin addict, and in truth, judging by the images in the video that we have here, it´s a board that looks really good.
