5'6" Elmore Re-Frye'd Fish
5'6" x 20 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Troy Elmore is a local shredder who lives and shapes in Costa Mesa. He's notable for his ability to surf 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.
This new version of Troy's Frye'd Fish includes straight back Gephart style, double foiled fins as opposed to traditional Hobie style keels. The wide point of the board is pushed back slightly and the bottom contour has been updated to a more dramatic tri-plane hull that gives the board an incredible sense of liveliness and drive. The distribution of foam is akin to the classic fish inspiration with a larger proportion of foam devoted to the nose while the tail pulled in and streamlined. Elmore's Frye'd Fish is comparably low on volume in comparison to other fish cohorts in an effort to maximize responsiveness and manuverability. If you're looking for a more performance oriented fish, this is a great board for you.
