The Harley Ingleby Series shaped by Billy Tolhurst is designed with Thunderbolt Technologies, utilizing advanced materials and technology in surfboard design that decreases weight while taking performance, flex, and control to the next level.
These lightweight epoxy constructions are 100% hand layups, and begin with an EPS foam core with multi-component carbon fiber stringer system, for high performance flex and twist. Proprietary designs employing internal carbon fiber components are arrayed in the deck and rails for precise flex control and strength.
The core shield PVC shell provides flexible protection to increase the longevity of the boards without compromising flex and twist characteristics. With a substantial amount of carbon fiber and fiberglass in the deck, bottom, and rails, surfboards in the Harley Ingleby Series will outperform and outlast traditionally constructed polyester comp boards.
Boards you find here are the exact models that Harley rides. While free surfing and training, Harley pulls out models featuring the BLUE Thunderbolt Technology Construction. These are true high performance boards that have extra carbon fiber internal elements that make them very strong. For competition, Harley often goes with the even lighter weight Thunderbolt RED construction in his HIHP model…sacrificing a bit of strength for the ultimate in responsiveness and lightest weight. We can’t tell you all of the ingredients to the secret sauce, but scroll down to the technology graphics below to see what goes into making these 100% hand layup models perform like lightning.
