Harley Ingleby Series HIHP Thunderbolt Surfboard
This is the performance longboard that Harley Ingleby rode when he won his second ASP World Longboard Title in 2014, which is an upgrade from the board on which he won the 2009 world title. The HIHP shaped by Billy Tolhurst is a true high-performance longboard with continual curve rocker that enables direction adjustments form anywhere on the board. The HIHP is designed flat under the nose for superior planing tight in the curl. A slightly convex bottom through the middle helps keep the rails nice and free for quick rail-to-rail transitions. A spiral V with double concaves and a flat tail area behind the fins allows powerful turning in all surf sizes. Normally rode as a thruster, the addition of a quad fin box set-up improves handling in big surf where longer turns at speed are preferred.

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.
There are 3 construction types within the Thunderbolt Technology. Thunderbolt Black is handcrafted using a blend of carbon and fiberglass lamination layers. The bottom lamination layers are 2-ounces of fiberglass layered with 6 oz. of carbon fiber while the deck is layered with 2 oz. of fiberglass and then 6 oz. of carbon fiber. The handcrafted result is a competition weight and flex longboard.
There are 3 construction types within the Thunderbolt Technology. Thunderbolt Red is handcrafted using an all-around fiberglass lamination. The bottom laminations are 6 and 2-oz. layers while the deck lamination is 6 and 4-ounces. The handcrafted result is a competition weight and flex longboard.
