Pink Mother Of Pearl Fins - Evolution Style

Beach Bum doesn't often rush to post stuff that's offered up for this form of artificial dissemination without checking out the angles and the motivation of the supplicants. But when someone from LX.TV pushed this clip my way, I was prepared to make an exception and stoke up the the marketing shenanigans for Evolution Surfboards.

It was the pink mother of pearl fins that did it for me. Only the Reef wallpaper has had me hit the pause button so quickly, all slack jawed and staring. Olo-style, handcrafted balsa boards designed by Clark Reidel. Olo boards, I learnt, were originally designed for use by Hawaiian royalty. Yes, a thing of beauty and a joy to behold - but you'll need access to equally regal coffers to afford one.

Nice board

A 12 foot thruster is not an olo, olo boards start at 14 feet.

We notice that the board has not been ridden, all the footage is og shortboards.

If anyone wants a truly functional modern wooden olo of unique design, tested for many years and well proven, go to olosurfer.com where a superior empress wood olo board can be had for 1/5th of the price

For a real olo, visit Tom Wegener's site, and speaking of sites, nice work, Beach Bum.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction guys! Great sites that are low on hype and high on stoke. That Vort-X tunnel fin got a patent on it? Never seen anything like that here.
