Derek Hynd’s extraordinary addition to the twin fin design stream differed dramatically to MR’s deep V style. The original TF shaped DH concept features prominent concaves through the fin area, a refined, thinner beaked nose line (heralding the no-nose era), and a stabilizer fin (foreshadowing the tri-fin).
To swooping arcs and snaps, DH added 360º foam bounces and even footstraps for more adventure. In this second coming, TF’s influences were Bertleman and Liddell, for DH, Smithy and Ron Woodward. Derek’s brand of aggressive pocket surfing took him to No. 7 in the World, twice.

MURALS - Rainbow Original handshapes have been handsprayed with murals by artist Martyn Worthington since 1972. Martyn's airbrushing talents are often described as "psychedelic" but always remain true to their surf/art roots. Murals are airbrushed on the bottom of the board with a Fade finish to the deck, glossed and polished to accentuate colour. Martyn prefers to incorporate individual designs into his artwork so feel free to email your design themes & choice of Fade colours (top and bottom)
