Town & Country Twin ByrnerTown & Country
The second Town & Country model we've had land in store is the Twin Byrner. This model takes the lead from the Saint (Martin Potter's iconic 80's twin fin shape) and heads in more of a high performance direction. Featuring a similar single wing swallow tail and the same fuller outline - but with a more modern foil and bottom contour (and the option of a 3rd fin!)
The Twin Byrner has a little less meat in the nose for less swing weight and more whip through turns. The fairly neutral bottom of the Saint has been modernized with a deeper single concave under the front foot that transitions into a spiral-vee double through the fins. This bottom contour has been used for more lift, acceleration and liveliness. This model retains a similar the same full outline and rocker as the Saint, with a wing just behind the fins that pulls into a relatively tight swallow tail. The distribution of foam is definitely a bit more modern, having said that though - there is still a decent amount of thickness in the nose (though not as extreme as the original).
These look super fun and I am currently trying to justify buying myself one. A great board for those who ride HP shortboards that want something to spice up even the dullest, mushy conditions. For the rest of us - this model could easily be surfed as a user friendly all-rounder. Alternatively if you are a bit bored with straight up performance boards and want to try something different these are definitely worth checking out.
