✓ 4 + 1 fin set-up
✓ The HIHP Speed is the next gen of the HIHP series
✓ Harley was excited to make a board that had no consideration on where the World Longboard Tour is going next and the judging direction.
✓ This model is all about making a really good all-round performance 9’1
✓ The narrowing of the ends and adjustment of the wide point means there is a greater overall curve allowing you to turn closer in tighter pockets with control.
✓ The result is a board that surfs more parallel to the wall when in trim and more comfortable to walk even with the pointier ends
✓ It’s a very similar outline to the board Harley won his first world event on in Anglet 2008.
✓ But it utilises the true HP rocker that has proven to be the best all-round rocker to date

CONSTRUCTION: Thunderbolt Black Technology
Thunderbolt Black Surfboards are suited to larger waves due to their more responsive carbon construction. Thunderbolt Black surfboards are hand crafter for a classic feel with enhanced response. Starting off with an EPS foam blank, a high density foam block is installed into the blank to provide a secure anchor point for the fin box. AVT flex control components are laminated to the bottom in an A shape, then a tapered groove is cut into the deck for the AVT stringer in a T shape, which is laminated onto the deck and pressed into the groove at specific depths. AVT flex control components are laminated to the deck, in a V shape. This combination AVT shape defines the flex, responsiveness and feel of the board creating a waistline component which creates a pivot point for tail flex, and stores the energy generated by natural flexing and twisting forces generated during a turn, which then releases through the board and fin launching the board forward. Hand laminated fiberglass layer and PVC shell lock AVT flex control components in, then is cured in a mould for precise rocker and shape. Thunderbolt black blanks are laminated in carbon making them a bit stiffer than the thunderbolt red construction. Designed in Japan, for the world.
