Thunderbolt Surfboards come in three different types of technology - Black, Red and Silver. Thunderbolt Black surfboards are suited to larger waves due to their more responsive carbon construction. Hand crafted for a classic feel, using an EPS foam blank, high density foam blocks and AVT flex control components laminated to the board. AVT shape defins the flex, responsiveness and feel of the board. Hand laminated with a fiberglass layer, and PVC shell lock, these boards are then cured in a mould for precise rocker and shape.
Thunderbolt Red surfboards are flexy and speed generating, making the best suited to everday surf conditions, as they will make the most of waist to head height surf. Thunderbolt Red boards have more flex than Thunderbolt Black, but use the same AVT flex compnenets to create pivot points, and are able to store energy generated by natural flexing and twisting forces created during a turn.
Thunderbolt Silver surfboards are traditionally suited to smaller waves and shaped in log style shapes. Hand crafted for a classic feel and enhanced response, these boards incorporate the AVT flex, and are laminated with a combintion of carbon fiber and fiberglass. Designed in Japan, for the world.
