Seasprite Sports introduce one of RRD’s highest selling ranges, the RRD Twin Tip V2 – which is seen as a reference freestyle board.
As the level of freestyle performance is redefining the word ‘windsurfing’, RRD’s custom factory has committed to redesigning two new progressive shapes that represent this change. The shapes are modern, compact, lightweight, easy to plane and pop in the blink of an eye. The new Twin Tip V2s are simply a new tool to express your desire to write a new page in freestyling, and they are a whole lot faster than their predecessors.
Shorter outlines on both boards compared to the previous versions, the 90 features a much narrower width compared to 88 lts V1. This reduced lengths allows the boards to be popped easier and then thrown around for double manouvers. Much thicker in the tail, the new twintips V2 are easier to plane and reach top speeds, an essential for new school manouvers. The new deck shape with their highly recessed area allows a better grip and control of the board while riding on choppy water.
RRD team rider Adam Sims said: “After 3 months of testing I can safely say the new board is like no other freestyle board on the market; it is fast, it pops high, it feels light under your feet, it carves well and it is controllable through sliding rotations, in chop and in the air. The major changes to the board have really made it very exciting but more important is that it is extremely current and fits in well with all the modern trends of the latest freestyle board; being shorter with sharper rails and a more radical outline. It is a huge step on from the classic TwinTip shape that RRD is famous for and an impressive step in the right direction.”
The range currently includes a 90 and a 100L model, each tooled up with MFC Powerbox Freestyle fins of the right length to slide to your heart’s content.
