The CJ Nelson Designs' The Sprout Thunderbolt Silver Surfboard is CJ’s favorite surfboard of all time. Originally shaped by Washington’s Dane Perlee and now resurrected and tweaked by Californian shaper Ryan Engle. This is an updated replica of the board CJ rode in Thomas Campbell’s movie “The Sprout”. Without a doubt, the best nose riding surfboard CJ has ever owned. Regarded by many as the best noserider of all time, this board was designed to take to Malibu or Scorpion Bay and hang ten. A must-have for any point break, tip dwelling, longboard enthusiast.

Construction

Thunderbolt Technology
Thunderbolt Technology utilizes advanced materials and technology to decrease weight while enhancing performance, flex characteristics, board control, and durability. Mass-produced epoxy boards are corky and stiff. While light and durable, they simply don’t ride well. But Thunderbolt’s hand-built boards take superior epoxy materials to an entirely different level. These boards provide the feel and sensitivity of a good poly board but deliver performance far beyond traditional epoxy pop-out constructions. Indeed, those who ride these high-tech epoxy boards claim they actually feel better than polyurethane. Thunderbolt boards are 100% hand layups. They begin with an EPS foam core with multi-component carbon fiber stringer systems that produce engineered flex and twist for a more lively, responsive performance. Proprietary designs employing internal carbon fiber components are then arrayed in the deck and bottom of the deck for precise flex control and strength. The core shield PVC provides flexible protection to increase strength and durability without compromising the flex and twist characteristics built into the blank. With ample carbon fiber and fiberglass in the deck, bottom, and rails, these boards both outperform and outlast traditional PU boards and other epoxy designs.

Thunderbolt Silver
There are 3 construction types within the Thunderbolt Technology. Thunderbolt Silver is handcrafted using an all-around fiberglass lamination. The bottom laminations are 6oz. and 4oz. fiberglass layers, while the deck laminations are 6oz carbon fiber and 6oz fiberglass. A classic feel with an enhanced hand-crafted result.
