Product Construction

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.

Thunderbolt Red
There are 3 construction types within the Thunderbolt Technology. Thunderbolt Red is handcrafted using an all-around fiberglass lamination. The bottom laminations are 6 and 2-oz. layers while the deck lamination is 6 and 4-ounces. The handcrafted result is a competition weight and flex longboard.

Additional Info

CJ was slowly recovering from a serious injury tearing his hamstring. The docs were all in agreement that surfing was pretty much out of the question unless done very lightly. CJ unfortunately had a trip planned for Mexico that was non refundable. He wanted to take a board whether he used it or not.

He started digging into the history books on the best "feeling" surfboards you can ride while doing nothing. If he couldn't physically surf good, then what simply feels the best? What's the most ergonomic craft to ride a wave on if he had the opportunity to paddle out? These searches pointed him to displacement hulls. He had previous knowledge of them from hanging out at Malibu in the early 2000s. He had borrowed a couple from his friends like Jimmy Gamboa and Dane Peterson, and even had an under appreciated 8'3" Liddle Super Smoothie in his quiver.

CJ called a meeting with Ryan about designing a couple long hulls for his Mexico trip. CJ and Ryan also met with multiple OG Hull builders to seek advice on stretching out these ergonomic designs. Ryan whipped up the first two with relative ease and CJ was off to Mexico with two beautiful long hulls.

The warm Mexican weather and water had CJ feeling great and after a few days he decided to give the hulls a spin.

The beautiful lines of those boards had CJ's mind in the clouds. What were they going to do? CJ will never forget his first wave, and to this day he says it's the most important wave he's ever ridden. Complete release and control. As he kicked out at the bottom of the point on his very first wave he knew that everything he had done and known in surfing was over. He had fallen into the rabbit hole of magical feels and once you've felt it, there's no turning back. The Parallax changed everything.
