Product Info

The Apex takes all of CJ Nelson Designs' knowledge of traditional and performance longboarding and rolls it into one beautiful package. When they designed this board they were out to make the most versatile classic longboard of all time. A board that’s incredibly easy to ride for a novice but also a board that CJ can push him on for many years to come. Concave in the nose for incredible noseride lift, hip in the back like a classic “involvement” log for pivot and whip but with a lower performance style rail and a modern edge in the tail for speed and control. A homage to the past with modern touches. The “Apex” of Classic longboard design.

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 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.

Apex 9'1

Stellar service by Cleanline as always, thank you.
My girlfriend is happy with her new Apex 9’1. Her transition from a High performance longboard was as smooth as it gets.
The Apex is most of what she was hoping for: a better paddler, catches waves earlier and farther out on the shoulder, easy to ride and super smooth. It instantly boosted her wave count and confidence to the point she started cross stepping on her second session!
I tried it in clean shoulder high conditions and was surprised how capable it is for being such a chunk under the arm! Paddling is good. I love the glide momentum before dropping in. The nose never caught in the pocket, the rails are very forgiving and everything flows nicely. Speed never got out of control and always felt well dialed in with the waves. Obviously, it is less responsive and nimble as a Hi perf longboard but really enjoyable nonetheless. Congrats to the Apex for scoring a spot in our modest quiver.

Happy Customer
Awesome board and fantastic advice from Cleanline surf!

Thanks to all the team at Cleanline surf for your wonderful advice! The board has exceeded all my expectations. I am a beginner/intermediate surfer (surfing the PNW) and was looking for a longboard that could help me progress and catch summer waves early. After 5 sessions, I can report that the worst of these sessions has been better than the best session I had on my previous longboard! If you are looking for a board to get early in the waves and progress your surf, don't hesitate - this is a magic board!
