The HI4 is Harley Ingleby’s new go to performance longboard for anything up to a bit over head faces. It’s wider all round with more plane shape curve making it incredibly loose and easy to turn. It utilizes the easy continual HIHP rocker with the last 6 inches flipped up so with the wider dimensions it’s still very at home in the pocket. The even rocker, nose concave and the wider nose combination makes the HI4 the easiest to walk and nose ride of the HI series.
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.
