Elmore Surfboards / Troy Elmore on his "Step Deck" & "Frye'd Fish" Model.
Catch Surf riders Tyler Stanaland and Kalani Robb were stoking when the new Catch Surf wetsuits arrived and they decided to go all pink for a few fun sessions. Check out our new wetsuits and more at catchsurf.com
Raised by groovy, bohemian toymakers among the towering redwoods and crisp, clean Central Californian air, Nate Tyler was always a different breed of surfer from his citified cohorts to the south.
The new clip is shot around Nates home, on the Central Coast of California. Boards featured include the Haydenshapes Untitled model, which is pretty much Nates favorite board both at home and even traveling, as well as the Love Buzz and a new concept Twin Fin.
Research Assistants: Grant Noble, Joey Bookout, Kyle Kennelly, Troy Elmore
Research Quiver: 5'2" Stpnk Keel Fish, 5'2" Stpnk Paddle Keel Fish, 5'5" Elmore Frye'd Fish, 5'6" Zippifish (Not in Daydream Research Center), 7'0" Fineline MP, 7'10" Liddle Baby V
The glassy, small, and punchy beach breaks of Newport provide a fantastic testing facility for a diverse spectrum of surfboards. On this beautiful morning we find Grant Noble, Joey Bookout, Kyle Kennelly, and Troy Elmore sharing some fun, playful waves on the surfboards mentioned above.
Troy Elmore is surfing one of his self shaped 5'5" Elmore Frye'd Fish, nearly identical to the 5'4" Elmore Frye'd Fish we have as apart of our Research Center. We'll often hear from Members of our Research Center that their favorite fish models ossiolate between Elmores and STPNKs. Kyle Kennelly is bouncing between the Research Center's 7'0" Fineline MP and 7'10" Liddle Baby V, great boards for effortless trimming and relaxed, low performance gliding. Joey Bookout was drawing graceful and unique lines on his own board that isn't apart of our Research Center. Joey is one of our favorite local shredders, the cat has style for days! Don't worry, we'll catch him on one of our Research Center sleds next session.
The most interesting conclusion of the day was from Grant. He was trading off between the Daydream Research Center's Griffin Stepanek (STPNK) Keel and Paddle Keel Fish models. The Paddle Keel fin design can scare people but Grant found that between trading off between the standard Keel Fish and Paddle Keel allowed him to hold most of the other variables constant and focus on the differences between the fins. Grant's conclusion was that the Paddle Keels seemed to have a sort of rubber band resonance that would allow him to spring out of his turns more and aided in reducing drag. If grant were to see both in the rack of our Research Center, he'd most definitely choose to ride the Paddle Keel Fish.
PAMA DAVIES X RUSTY TWIN FIN - Slop to Slab
The Rusty Twin Fin - Designed by Rusty Preisendorfer, road tested by Pama Davies in Indonesia.
“ Starting with a template Rusty used in the 70's & 80's while working with Shaun Tomson as his base Rusty refined the bottom with the addition of a shallow single concave that feeds into the vee. The vee splits into a double in front of the fins and runs off the rail behind the wing. The position of the wing, the back of the fin in conjunction with the concave exiting through the wing makes for solid firm turns. The foil in the rail line is very similar to a modern performance shortboard.”
