Summary: I just received my Three Brothers Irish Twin and I could not be happier! I found their website from reading some reviews on another site and I was blown away when I looked them up and saw the quality of their boards. I am new to paddle boarding and have only been on a 10'6 prior to this board. However RJ at the shop and Brent were both so helpful to me on the phone that I decided to go for the 11'4. I am also extremely pleased with the price and quality of the workmanship. The board is so beautiful it's almost to pretty to not have it displayed in your home! I paddle on "mostly" smooth fresh water and the board performs like a dream. The carbon fiber paddle is a definite must to accompany this board. Truthfully it's all the board I will ever need! No need to ever trade it for anything else! A plus if you have it shipped to you, they do an amazing job of packaging and protecting the board. It was delivered with white glove treatment.
Cons: I had to call the guys at the shop to figure out how to attach my fins and use the cables to attach to my Tahoe. There were no instructions but the guys at the shop were so helpful and great they walked me through everything step by step in both of the phone calls that I had to make.
Usage: Touring, fresh water, possible bay water in the future

Summary: This board is a new offering by Three Brothers boards. I have a 10'6" Blondie, 11'4" Jason Ryan and 12' Jason Ryan in the traditional Three Bothers surf/SUP shape but this is the latest offering in a new displacement hull with the Irish Twin finish. This board offers a tremendous amount of volume and can float large paddlers while still being extremely quick for racers. Essentially it offers a hybrid of sport touring/race capability. Cargo netting on the nose allows paddlers to secure belongings. A recessed deck offers a lowed center of gravity for better balance. Three Brothers boards woodgrain finish distinguish them from all the rest, you will not go far without being asked about your board. Three Brothers is a family owned and operated business based in Daytona Beach FL. When you buy a Three Brothers board you become part of the family of Three Brothers board owners.
Pros: Extremely well balanced, foot position exiting a pivot turn is far less crucial, the board is forgiving which keeps the paddler moving forward vs wasting time focusing on balance. The displacement hull slices the water like a knife. In the hands of a trained racer it is a bullet, for the up and coming racer or touring enthusiast it moves through the water effortlessly.
Usage: I paddle all types of conditions, flat,chop, waves, salt and fresh water for recreation, touring, fitness and racing.

Summary: This is our second Three Brothers Board, first was the 11'4 Blondie with the fishing set-up and now our stunning 11'4 Irish Twin! I think we've probably sold about 20 of them by just carrying them around on the truck! We get great comments on them everywhere we roam and I will probably move all the family pictures from the living room to make a place to hang both, when not in use of course. Brad and Justin truly make ART in their little shop!
Pros: Comfortable, sturdy, stable in all water, beautiful! Can't wait to see my girl land her sailfish from hers!
Cons: Zero, zip, nada!
Usage: Touring, playing, fishing
