TROY ELMORE SURFBOARDS

Troy Elmore is a local shredder who lives and shapes in Costa Mesa. He’s one of those kind of guys that can rip a diverse lineup of surfboards – logs, fishes, and everything in between.

 

Troy’s talents in the water correlate with his talents on land especially when it comes to shaping, he might be known best for his Skip Frye inspired fishes but he also excels at shaping midlengths and logs.

Imagine being able to glide, twist, and turn your way over the Californian coast whilst listening to Jimmy Hendrix on full blast. Well, full blast in your head at least. We introduce Troy Elmore; Surfer, skater and all-around Californian chico. He spends his days riding his motorbike, riding waves, and skating the streets -for Brixton, he appeared as an obvious choice to act as a representative for their brand, reflecting just what they’re about. Read on for an insight into the oh-so attractive culture that surrounds an acclaimed surfer.

“I’m from Huntigton Beach and I love surfing blackies in Newport Beach. Comparing with US, Australia was really rad. Lots of right point breaks. Where I’m from it’s mostly beach breaks so it was cool to be able to surf all the long points. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere other than California, but I would love to get out of Orange County, maybe move down south to San Diego. Back in september I was invited to the Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitacional competiton.

The Duct Tape events are really cool, they’re way different from any other surf contest. It’s a very care-free event, not too competitive. Everyone is just stoked to be hanging out and surfing together. I would say they are becoming a very regular thing for me.

It’s hard to answer what’s the difference between longboard surfers and shortboards in this event, I wouldn’t say we’re longboarders, though I think all the surfers in the event are very well rounded surfers who can ride anything. As far as longboards being different from shortboards apart from the length is the way you surf them; it’s all about wave positioning and staying in the pocket when you’re riding a longboard. At least, that’s my opinion. If I did other boardsports (skating, longboarding…) ?

Yeah I have always been really into skateboarding. I don’t know if it helps me with my surfing though. I would say surfing helps my skateboarding though. I think that the relationship with Brixton started just because they related to my lifestyle – the fact that I don’t just surf, I ride motorcycles, skateboard, I’m into music – all the things that influence me, they support and are also into so it’s perfect. I definitely think there is such a thing as a surf culture. Whenever they are events everyone comes to support and hangout and be apart of the scene, it’s awesome.

I have too many idols ! Musicians, surfers, skaters, motorcycle builders, fishermen, friends. If I pick one song to either reflect, or motivate me on the water it would definitely be Jimi Hendrix’s “The Wind Cries Mary”. Joel Tudor has a movie called Longer and there is a part where he is surfing to that song and it is forever stuck in my head, I surf to “The Wind Cries Mary” every time I surf.

SURFBOARDS

ELMORE-FRYED-FISH ELMORE SURFBOARDS
MODEL :

FRYED FISH



COMMENT :
This fish is a contemporary refinement of the "retro twin fin" with a roughly 6" deep swallow tail and beak nose. Starting from the nose, the flat bottom smooths into a single concave that begins about half way down the board and quickly transitions into a double concave that extends through the twin keels and out the swallow.
The slightly domed deck holds a nice fullness as it tapers to a forgiving rail with a sharp trailing edge that begins about six inches above the fins. The distribution of foam is akin to the classic fish inspiration with the wide point forward and a larger proportion of foam devoted to the nose while the tail pulled in and streamlined.
Typical dimensions:
5'4" x 20" x 2 3/8
5'6" x 20 1/4" x 2 3/8"
ELMORE-TWINFIN ELMORE SURFBOARDS
MODEL :

TWINFIN



COMMENT :
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.

Typical dimensions::
5'6 x 19 ½ x2 5/16
5'8 x 20 x 2 3/8
5'10 x 20 ½ x 2 7/16
6’0 x 20 3/4 x 2 3/4
ELMORE-BONZER ELMORE SURFBOARDS
MODEL :

BONZER



COMMENT :
Elmor version of Campbell Brothers' Russ Short style.
Speaking of Bonzer anyway, this bottom! It is! Bonza Bottom is a bottom shape that utilized Campbell Brothers in 1973, utilizing the fluid dynamics produced, lifts the board when going straight, releasing the water from the bottom to the side at the time of turn, making full use of its propulsive power It keeps the speed of turns.
ELMORE-EGGMAN ELMORE SURFBOARDS
MODEL :

EGGMAN



COMMENT :
Why Eggman ? not just because it's a great beginner board (which it is), but because Eggman model is just great boards. If you could only have one board to surf forever on, an egg would not be a bad choice.
It work in small waves, medium waves and if you have the skills; larger and hollower surf. An Eggman will trim in longboard ankle slappers and still rip a big 'ol bottom turn or cutback.
If you haven't been on an egg in awhile, it might be time to give it another try. Trust us, you will be pleasantly surprised.
ELMORE-PINTAIL ELMORE SURFBOARDS
MODEL :

PINTAIL



COMMENT :
Single fin pintail of Troy ELMORE is made for everyday waves. Outline water drop, medium rocker and flat to tail, with bevels rails to nose to make them finer while keeping volume to the stringer. This board is made for a fast and curved surf in all conditions.
Typical dimensions: from 5'8 to 7'0
ELMORE-SUBMARINE ELMORE SURFBOARDS
MODEL :

SUBMARINE



COMMENT :
This design has a very low rocker for effortless drive and trim.
The bottom is complex, featuring convex and concave planning surfaces that transition together smoothly.
He recommends riding this board with a flex fin 11 ½" up from the tail and stringerless to allow the board to load and spring.
ELMORE-SAMCLUB ELMORE SURFBOARDS

COMMENT :
The Troy Elmore version of the legendary magic board "Magic Sam" shaped by Charisma Nut Young of Australia for himself in 1966 .
