2020 Smik Hipster Twin V2Regular price $2,199.00 Save $0.00
The Hipster Twin is just a case of history repeating itself. It’s almost impossible not to notice the performance that’s evolved from twin fins in the surfing world, with many of the biggest brands having one in their range and all carrying the heritage of the original Mark Richard design.
It's how it all started for us, a set of Mark Richard twins with a little nubster fin laying around and thinking how perfect a twinny would be for a SUP, helping loosen things up a bit.
With its fuller nose and moderately compact shape, the Hipster Twin allows you to go shorter with added stability and glide. It doesn't feel awkward to paddle over large distances.
Mark Richards was onto something combining the hip in the outline with the 2+1 fin set up as it allows you to draw unparalleled tight arcs without letting go or losing speed.
The single concave feeds through a double and releases to a V out the tail to give a frictionless sensation of acceleration and drive coming out of a turn. Rail to rail transitions are some of the smoothest experienced, and the way the Hipster Twin feeds up the face makes everything seem easier.
It just feels like there’s a lot less drag, which equates to a sensation of speed. You really notice it when you put the board on rail and see it accelerate.
All of this results in longer surfs just because you’re just having way too much fun. It’s as simple as that.
SMIK hasn't re-invented the wheel on this one, but we've done a pretty fine rendition of it.
Hipster twin V2
After extensive testing it was finally possible to find some subtle yet significant changes to the original Hipster twin which has proven so popular by all that have tried.
Still carrying the characteristics that made it so popular initially being a stable board with excellent speed and on rail turning capabilities, it’s just been ever so slightly tweaked.
Outline from the hip forward is slightly straighter to give more control in waves with more power. (Without detracting from its small wave abilities.)
Deeper double concave which reduces rocker in the middle of the concave while leaving the rail rockerline unchanged. (enhanced acceleration and speed)
Tail V has been moved further forward further enhancing it’s already remarkable smooth rail to rail transition and ability to project more vertically.
So whilst the imitators try and replicate the Hipsters success, SMIK raises the bar even further.
Smik Style Lord V2Regular price $2,399.00 Save $0.00
The Smik Style Lord V2 is available in 3 widths to suit the popular 10' class of performance longboard style paddle boarding.
10' x 28" 130L
10’ x 30 V2 151L
-Version 2.0 of the Style Lord x30 maintains characteristics of the original version, but with some small changes combining to make a considerable difference.
-Refined outline curve. - The curves have just been brought in and smoothed out ,with the resulting effect of an easier initiation of turns. Squash tail creates drive whilst adding to stability
A Smoother/increased rocker over it’s previous incarnation, it still maintains excellent glide. Stepping back, she’s got an aggressive cutback which is a little easier to bring it round without requiring as much torque. Added rolled V in the middle and down through the tail, with a deeper double concave running through the curve and V combine to meld speed flow and drive through turns. Nose rocker and single concave makes it a nose riding delight with rails being low volume, but rounded providing response without bogging.
Style Lord 10’x 29 x 133L
Basically a skinnier version of the x30 with a pintail instead of the squash.
The resulting effect of this being a less stable, but more reactive longboard for those getting a little bit competitive in their aspirations.
Both boards are more than capable in small powerless waves with good glide, but take them out in a bit of juice and they’ll be more than capable of holding a line in larger surf.
10’ x 32 x 165L same design principals as the “x 29” just blown up into a larger version. (Replacing the North Freo Long Mac.)
