2001 to 2006 - 100% twintip
2006 to 2016 - 100% surfboard
2016 to 2018 - 90% foil & 10% surfboard
2018 to 2019 - 80% foil, 10% surfboard, 10% twintip

Foiling actually got me interested in the twintip again since I now get so many sessions with the foil. Surfboard only comes out on “proper” wave days.

These days I just pick the right tool for the job. Overhead+ top to bottom waves = surfboard
Flat water 25+ knots = twintip
Everything else = foil
