And the K2 Poacher's turned up tail/ twin tip design was meant for what...going forwards? Poacher was before the 1080 and LINE. However, the design was flawed in the fact that it was too soft. Forward thinking though.
The Olin Mark series was the last 'twin tip' previous to the K2 offering. It sold as a ballet ski in the 70's. However, was it FREEZE that ran a picture of a pair of old wooden twin tips from circa 1920s??? That was a wild picture. Full on tall pointed tips on the tails. Now, we do not know if the creator's intention was for skiing backwards, or if was for scrubbing speed on turns, but nonetheless, it was the earliest known twin tipped ski that we have photographic evidence of.
Here's my basic analysis. The wood twin tip in FREEZE was a prehistoric twin, and the Olin Mark IV was a premodern twin. The first modern twin was definitely the Poacher, NOT the Teneighty or any other ski.
