TWIN-D | ALOHA x WOOD SURFBOARDS

$850

The Twin-D is a performance twin fin with trailer, slightly pulled in nose with a straight tail outline which allows the board to cross over from flat faced beach breaks into more curvy better quality point break waves without much adjustment in foot/body positioning.

With a little more volume distributed toward the nose, low entry rocker that transitions into a flat tail rocker ensures that your wave count is always high as paddling and catching waves isn’t a problem! The bottom has a deep double concave starting under front foot which goes all the way through to the tail.

A key design feature of the Twin-D that Woody has adopted from his apprenticeship with shaping legend Chris Brock has the apex of the double concave sitting lower in the water than the bottom edge of the rail. This design element allows the board to transition from rail to rail very easily. This design feature is visible on a lot of the Webber designs and the latest incarnation of this design was on the Webber Creature model although the Twin D is a lot more subtle than the dramatic curves of Greg Webber. 

The Twin-D is perfect for smooth flowing surfing in a super wide variety of conditions.

Aloha Surfboard Construction Technology

- XEPS Boards are constructed using a 36gram EPS core with a high-grade timber stringer, each board is hand laminated using Epoxy Resign and High Grade Fibreglass providing a lighter, stronger board that feels fast and responsive under your feet increasing performance in a wide variety of conditions!
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is very light and strong. EPS foam has more buoyancy and floatation increasing paddling speed and manoeuvrability.
Epoxy Resin is a healthier alternative to polyester as epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs,  decreasing the amount of harmful chemicals released into the environment.

- FLAX FIBRE cloth is an engineered reinforcement fabric made from the bast of the flax seed plant.  While flax fibre is one of the oldest cultivated fibres for textiles, it is only recently that its use as a fibreglass substitute has been achieved.  Incorporating flax fibre cloth in the lamination reduces the use of regular glass by 1/3rd and adds a great earthy look and more importantly helps lower our carbon footprint.
SR GreenPoxy 56 is an epoxy resin which has up to 56% of its molecular structure coming from plant origin. This percentage is function of the carbon origin contained in the epoxy molecule.The final rate of the mix bio-based carbon content will depend on the hardener choice. The manufacture of EPS foam does not involve the use of toxic isocyantes used in the production of regular surfboard blanks. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is light weight and has fantastic shock absorbing properties, making it ideal for surfboards. EPS foam has more buoyancy and flotation increasing paddling speed and maneuverability.
Aloha has teamed up with the first, independent 3rd party consumer-facing “eco-label” for boards, the ECOBOARD Project is focused on reducing  carbon footprints, increasing the use (and reuse) of renewable, recycled and up-cycled inputs, and reducing toxicity within the surfboard manufacturing process.

- XF Boards are constructed using a 36gram EPS core with a high-grade timber stringer, each board is hand laminated using Epoxy Resign and Biaxial Fibreglass on the deck providing a lighter, stronger board that feels fast and responsive under your feet increasing performance in a wide variety of conditions!
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is very light and strong. EPS foam has more buoyancy and floatation increasing paddling speed and manoeuvrability.
Biaxial Fibre Glass has half its fibres aligned along the length of the cloth (0 degrees) and half across the cloth (90 degrees) creating a controlled flex pattern.
Epoxy Resin is a healthier alternative to polyester as epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs,  decreasing the amount of harmful chemicals released into the environment.

- ECOSKIN Technology is a small step toward producing surfboards that are manufactured with more Earth friendly ethics.
Ecoskin surfboards are by no means sustainable but utilising less toxic materials during production we are taking steps to decrease our carbon footprint.
Paulownia is one of the fastest growing trees in the world, capable of growth rates of well over seven feet per year! Paulownia timber is perfectly suited as a sustainable alternative in surfboard production due to its lightweight and proportionately natural strength characteristics.
Some species of plantation Paulownia can be harvested for saw timber in as little as five years.
Once Paulownia trees are harvested, they regenerate from their existing root systems, earning them the name of the “Phoenix tree”.
