Derek Hynd Hot Buttered Retro Twin Fin Surfing
Totally unafraid of boundaries, Mr. Hynd has often chosen complex and critical nuance over simplicity. Eccentric perhaps, at expressing the state of surfing, it’s multi-faceted, foibles and fearless aficionados. The truth, loud and clear, at all times personifies a character of strength welded with incredible ability. From avant-garde expression using foot-straps for rotation in the late ‘70s to a decade of finless freedom underling the sheer determination and dedication of a true visionary. Derek has given surfing a rare singularly alternative approach by advancing the purity of Hawaiian finless craft to modern high-performance individual expression. Unfettered by commercial or competitive machinations, DH shines alone at the very apex of an outstanding passion.
