Twin Pin: Test Run

A few years back ABC co-owner, Kahana Kalama, rode a twin pin shaped by local shaper, Jeff McCallum, for Kookbox Surfboards. We drove up to Lowers to film a little edit of its maiden voyage and the board ended up becoming a staple in Kahana's quiver.

 

Last month Kahana shaped his very first surfboard. Inspired by the unique shape of the twin pin model developed by the Mirandon brothers of La Jolla, CA in the late 1960s, Kahana tried his hand at creating a similar craft for the looming summer sessions at San Diego's beach breaks.
