TROY ELMORE 

I remember one time...
I was super bored
and my friend had a shaping room
in his garage,
and so I thought I’d give it a go.

When I started riding longboards and twin fins and stuff, people just looked at me like I was an idiot... they give you the dirtiest look because you’re catching waves and having fun.

Huntington Beach-grown Troy Elmore. 

A tallish, lanky, bike building skater kid who got into shaping sort of by accident... According to HIM.

Mr.Elmore now shapes twinnies and longs sprinkled with some bonzer and egg action. Oh and he also tweaks classic shortboard templates to fit his own superflowy, twin-fin based approach.

While many of Elmore's quotes and videos might portray him as this kind of random zen-like, man-cavey odd duck, when your read through the lines he actually nailes what the core of surfing might just be about:

Catching waves and maximizing the amount of fun to be had during.
