9'6" HI Diamond Drive 2 Thunderbolt Red Tolhurst

9'6" Diamond Drive 2 Thunderbolt Red Longboard.

9'6" x 23 1/4" x 3 1/8" - 78.6L

CONSTRUCTION: Thunderbolt Red Technology
Due to the flex and speed generating qualities of the thunderbolt red construction, these boards are best suited to everyday surf conditions as they will make the most of waist to head height surf. Thunderbolt Red 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 red blanks are then laminated in fibreglass giving them more flex than the black construction. Designed in Japan, for the world.
