Product Info

Designing the CJ Nelson Designs Oracle Thunderbolt Silver Surfboard project has been a long time coming. Turning a point-and-shoot glider into a well rounded performance longboard. For years, CJ has been dabbling in glider surfing, having the top glider shapers from around the world build him boards. The thing that bothers him that mostly all gliders have in common is that they are very temperamental and hard to ride. Easy to catch waves on, for sure, but hard to navigate once you're up. They wanted to break this chain and build a glider that catches waves with ease, but performs like no other. The Oracle has a generous rocker to eliminate hang-ups, a performance rail, more tail flip for nose work, and a light, manageable glass job to accentuate performance. If you want to surf well into your 80s, better start mastering a glider. A must have for everyone.

Product Construction

Thunderbolt Silver
There are 3 construction types within the Thunderbolt Technology. Thunderbolt Silver is handcrafted using an all-around fiberglass lamination. The bottom laminations are 6oz. and 4oz. fiberglass layers, while the deck laminations are 6oz carbon fiber and 6oz fiberglass. A classic feel with an enhanced hand-crafted result.

Additional Info

In 2016, Thomas Campbell loaned CJ his Skip Frye Eagle to help him get through the Santa Cruz summer. At that point CJ's glider experience was almost none, with the exception of riding his fathers 10'3" Phil Edwards Waikiki. The speed and glide CJ got on the Eagle changed his outlook on what longboards in general should feel like. The long swoops and simplistic flow had him hooked, but he always thought they could operate more like a traditional log. Could they noseride, pivot, and slash, turning a novelty board into a daily driver?

Thanks to Skip Frye, Dane Purlee, Thomas Campbell and Josh Hall for all the years of glider tutelage.

Thunderbolt Technology
Thunderbolt Technology utilizes advanced materials and technology to decrease weight while enhancing performance, flex characteristics, board control, and durability. Mass-produced epoxy boards are corky and stiff. While light and durable, they simply don’t ride well. But Thunderbolt’s hand-built boards take superior epoxy materials to an entirely different level. These boards provide the feel and sensitivity of a good poly board but deliver performance far beyond traditional epoxy pop-out constructions. Indeed, those who ride these high-tech epoxy boards claim they actually feel better than polyurethane. Thunderbolt boards are 100% hand layups. They begin with an EPS foam core with multi-component carbon fiber stringer systems that produce engineered flex and twist for a more lively, responsive performance. Proprietary designs employing internal carbon fiber components are then arrayed in the deck and bottom of the deck for precise flex control and strength. The core shield PVC provides flexible protection to increase strength and durability without compromising the flex and twist characteristics built into the blank. With ample carbon fiber and fiberglass in the deck, bottom, and rails, these boards both outperform and outlast traditional PU boards and other epoxy designs.
