Drawing inspiration from Herbie Fletcher's classic designs, this board's outline is a nod to the timeless. Its features seamlessly blend characteristics from both ends of the longboarding spectrum. 

Noteworthy is the substantial concave through the nose, extending to the back third of the board, where it transitions into a V inside a double concave. This design significantly contributes to lift while on the nose and ensures smooth flow from nose to tail surfing.

The rails play a pivotal role in the versatility of this design, allowing you to surf the board in various styles. The apex in the rail is elevated through the nose, gradually melding into a low apex through the tail. This unique configuration provides excellent response off the tail when needed, delivering the expected feel of a classic traditional design.

A wider nose, coupled with a magic rocker and a rounded pin tail, forms a winning combination that grants this model incredible lift, glide, and stability on the nose. Whether you're seeking responsiveness off the tail or the ability to flow through sections from any stance, this board offers a dynamic and classic experience. Elevate your surfing with this fusion of timeless design and modern innovation.

“The feeling I got when surfing the 9’6 X 23 ½ X 3 ¼  was so amazing that I decided to make a 9’1 X 22 ½ x 2 ¾ with a 2+1 fin set up and it feels like the board I have always tried to make!” – Ben Skinner

Ben's first competitive outing on this board earned him the highest heat total of the whole WSL World Longboard titles in Taiwan in December 2018. Of 18.07 out of 20. 

This Peacemaker is constructed using 'Thunderbolt Black' technology, a 100% hand layup Carbon Fibre/Fibreglass Lamination which delivers a competition weight and flex surfboard. 'Thunderbolt Black' uses a Fused Cell EPS Foam Blank which incorporates a Carbon Fibre Multi-Component Flex Control System which replaces a traditional wooden stringer which along with the Carbon Fibre/Fibreglass lamination delivers a familiar flex which will remain for the extended lifespan of these durable boards. Thunderbolt Black uses a 6oz + 2oz Carbon Fibre/Fibreglass deck lamination with the same on the bottom. The Fused Cell EPS Foam Blank is wrapped in a Core Shield PVC Shell which affords flexible protection to the EPS core.

Experience the excellence of Thunderbolt Technology surfboards, meticulously handcrafted to the highest standard. Rest assured, the board you purchase is exactly the same as the one Ben rides – a testament to its quality and performance.
