Anyone try a Hyfly Twinser? How do the two short fins work for upwind ability and turning? Thanks

I used to have a few twin-fin boards for wave sailing back when twin fins were the cool thing about a decade ago; they were slow upwind, probably because of the massive drag from the two fins. They did work OK when riding waves, but the tradeoff is not worth it IMHO. I would say don't waste your money on one of these.

I have the Madd 90. I like it - it behaves just like a single fin board upwind and in the turns. If you get bashed around in chop, it doesn't spin out and generally behaves better when over-powered.
