And no, I'm not getting photo incentives from those ads. If i wanted to do that, I'd just say 'Rip Curl, Nordica, Marker, Level, Astrix.' See? Now i've made money.' - Brad Holmes to some idiot kid from Potland Maine
My dad still has a pair of Olin Mark V's in the garage, bright orange... They kind of look like popsicle sticks b/c they don't have much sidecut.
'...Smoking's bad, smoking killed my dad. Yeah, he was driving down the highway one day and as he was lighting his cigarette, it blew out the window. So he jumps out the door to save it, and ran himself over. Uh, you mind if I smoke?' -Olie Ollaussen, Ski Bum extraordinaire

ok, according to the line website, im pretty sure they all came out in the same year, i would copy and paste but im damb to lazy, go to the line website then go to propaganda or whatever, i think its part 1 but it said taht line created the first skiboard and then on the yearly new ski showcase line, salomon, rollinal, and some other ski comonlys all released twin tips at the same time. i probably got it all wrong tho
go listen to some emo. those whiny guys feel your pain.-linemaverick5...
i have a pair of the Olin Mrak IV on the wall in my basement i didn't notice they had twins until i was down there working on someother skis and my friend goes holy shit those are twins from back in the day. it was sweet
the magazine is called 'POWDER' cool! - my stupid non-skiing friend
K2 had the Poacher out in the fall of 1997, Salomon followed later with the 1080, but didn't sell those skis until the next year, fall of 1998. Dynastar had these twin tip Twister skis selling in fall or 1998 as well. Line didn't sell twin tip skis until the following year, fall or 1999 with the release of the 1260, a 162cm twin and the Ostness Dragon a 193cm twin. The K2 Enemy(all black top, red, white and blue bases) and the Rossi Pow Air (black and white vertical stripes) and Dynastar Twin Board Concept (cow base) started selling that fall of 1999 as well.
Olin had their ballet ski the Mark IV years and years earlier, but the first real twins were wooden skis. One is actually on display in an Aspen ski antique store. It was also featured in Freeze and had an approximate 1930's date on it.
Actually, the first ever twintip made was called the "Banshee" and it was made in the early 1930's. It was a full twin, pointy tipped all wood ski madef ro doing ballet moves on the slopes. Straight out of an older issue of freeze!
