McKee Byron Twin

  • Anyone who has ridden Byron Bay’s ‘The Pass’ knows that speed and pivot are what is required from your board. There are days when the walls are speedy and days when endless cutbacks are required depending on swell direction. Maybe it's long fast lefts at ’Tallows’ … or if ‘Wategos’ is on with its peaky walls where you can mix it with the pods of dolphins. Riding the Byron Twin, laying into vertical climbs or big whooping roundhouse turns is child’s play.

    The Byron fish has a deep Vee tail with heavy double concave. That is the speed mix that takes the squirrel out of the twin. This combined with a straight tail rail section with deep fishtail lets you drive long secure carves off the bottom plus will free the tail up for that lip carve or snap. The pronounced wide point of the outline also helps to draw the nose around and keeps it flowing. The bottom nose entry is low and contoured with an upward roll near the rail, and a concave in the centre that extends to the boards' midsection. This gives lift, speed, and a catch-free performance.

    The rails are a low/mid profile that slices through any side chop on the face. In all, The Byron Twin is very versatile and perfect for those wanting a loose, fluid and free-feel perfectly suited to Byron waves. The board comes complete with hand-foiled fiberglass Keel fins.
