Taylor Knox Twin - Apex
We've worked closely with Taylor to dial in a twin template that would appeal to his style and still be user friendly for the majority of us mere mortals.
Taylor is one of the most iconic power surfers the surf world has known. Goes without saying that he spends a lot of time on rail executing powerful, drawn out lines. He gravitates toward fins that provide hold and drive when pushing his sleds to their limits. That was the focus when fine tuning these fins.
Taylor's Arc Series Twins have wide bases, are relatively upright and utilize a hatchet style tip. These design characteristics bring balance to the template. You can expect these twins to be speed generating, offering down the line drive from the take off and through turns. The more upright outline means they won’t fight you when you shift your weight to your back foot and want to crank on the tail. Finally the hatchet style tip will ensure that you can carve and stay on rail through the fullness of your turns. You won’t have to baby your board through the last 1/3 of turns; these fins will help you stay locked in; allowing for more fluid, graceful surfing.
Paired with our proprietary SeriesIII foiling and Apex Series construction Taylor’s Arc Series twins are going to be as high quality and performance as you’ll find anywhere on the market. Unlike molded fins, we make no compromises with the foiling of these fins. They are 100% built for speed.
“These fins are fast! Even when laying it down, they have tons of hold.” -Taylor Knox
Taylor’s signature fin is part of our line of Apex Series line. Every fin is CNC cut from G10 fiberglass to insure precision foiling and ideal flex patterns. This means increased response and higher performance in general.
