Skindog Thunderbolt Silver Cherry Picker 72 Surfboard 9ft 2 - Cherry Red





A traditional single fin longboard with a very different tail design to create lift on the nose with response and drive off the tail.

This model stands out as one of Skindog's most complete and uniquely designed longboards to date, embodying a traditional single fin outline coupled with an innovative tail design.

Crafted in response to shifts in both competitive and recreational longboarding landscapes, the Skindog Cherry Picker reflects a notable emphasis at the World Championship level on traditional single fin longboarding, blending flow, nose riding, and tight turns. 

Recognising a gap in his quiver, Ben Skinner dedicated the 2019 and early 2020 competitive seasons to developing a new model. The outcome is the Cherry Picker, featuring an outline that aligns with traditional longboard designs—characterised by a wide tail and middle section—and a subtly more pulled-in nose with a touch of new school flair. This unique combination results in a modern Noserider that excels in holding and lifting while executing tight pocket nose riding. The sensation it offers is unparalleled, providing a surfing experience like no other.

The Cherry Picker is designed to be effortlessly surfed by both experienced and novice longboarders, making it a versatile and enjoyable addition to any surfer's quiver. Elevate your surfing experience with the Skindog Cherry Picker, a board that seamlessly blends tradition with modern innovation.

The Cherry Picker is constructed using 'Thunderbolt Silver' a 100% hand layup Carbon/Fibreglass Lamination which delivers a classic weight and flex surfboard. Thunderbolt Silver 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 lamination delivers a familiar flex which will remain for the extended lifespan of these durable boards. Thunderbolt Silver uses a 6oz Carbon + 6oz Fibreglass deck lamination with 6oz + 4oz fibreglass 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.
