The Haydenshapes MISC has been created with one sentiment in mind: You shouldn’t have to compromise your surfing to ride a twin-fin. To elaborate, your approach to surfing shouldn’t have to be focussed around riding a twin fin, even if you are riding one. This Misc twin fin will progress your surfing, not dumb it down. The MISC. is a twin fin (or 2+1) that will actually ride and perform like your performance short board when surfing the wave top to bottom.
Outstandingly drivey, fast and loose above the lip. The MISC. is a Haydenshapes team-rider favourite for those wanting that elusive performance twin. It'll have you’ll flying down the line and drawing plenty of speed with that drag-free twin fin feeling.
To sum it up, the Haydenshapes MISC. is a versatile, performance twin fin. However, considering the board has a center box for a stabilizer fin — it’s not quite a “twin,” in the definitive sense. Regardless, the design of this twin is to ride and feel like a performance board, with the subtle hints traditionally felt within a twin only in the areas of the wave where you’re pushing for the release. The outline uniquely uses a wing well behind the front fins, thus releases water later, which is why the board maintains plenty of hold off the bottom and top.
The MISC. also has the outline’s wide-point, bringing plenty of volume forward in the shape, resulting in great paddling speed. Once up and riding, exceptional feelings of “flow” and “glide” are the best sensations to describe the board. Placing the twin fins toe-in a little straighter also generates plenty of drag-free down-the-line speed. The fin-boxes have also been positioned further back in the board to lean towards hold and control.
Technically, the bottom contours on the MISC. feature a rolled vee in the entry, slight single concave under the front foot running through the board fading out at the tail.
