Town & Country The SaintTown & Country
Just arrived in store are the Town & Country The Saint model. An iconic surfboard shape from the mid 1980’s – The Saint twin fin design was a board made famous by the revolutionary fast and progressive surfing of the then teenage Martin Potter (who later claimed the 1989 ASP World Champion – in case you have never listened to Joe Turpel).
This now classic model has just been made available again with some subtle fine tuning (courtesy of master shaper Glenn Pang). The flat panel vee bottom of the original has been replaced by a slight single concave that flattens out into a vee out the tail – for a little more lift and liveliness. The Saint still has the same full outline, with a wing just behind the fins that pulls into a tighter swallow tail. The board retains the same foil or distribution of foam as the original. Plenty of meat is kept in the nose and under the chest for paddle power, glide and stability over the front foot.
