Spring '17 brought us the talented Troy Elmore as a newly recognized name in Sea sick Surf Shop. Troy’s easy going vibe comes off in the smooth style and dynamically shaped boards, locally glassed at UWL. Straight outta HB, and Newport area, Troy’s attention to shaping is becoming more apparent, in that he is pure raw talent.
The Elmore Olsen Twin features old school rails (turned down from deck, same as The Lost Love), flat entry to a medium single to double concave finishing in spiral vee x panel vee off the tail. The outline is full with the wide point pushed forward and a slight side-cut outline.
A wing and flute is placed just below the base of the twin fins to break up the outline and create a pivot point for the board. The Elmore Olsen Twin is fast and loose and a great, modern day substitute for a big, bulky and unrefined old school twin fin.
