Ben Skinner’s Blender Model

When it comes to modern high-performance longboards, most people are looking for a blend of performance characteristics and that classic longboard trim that made us fall in love with the sport to begin with. British surfing champion and accomplished shaper has combined the two in what he appropriately calls the Blender—a longboard shape that combines the best of his Missing Link and Saving Grace shapes. The board is built for fatter, slower waves that have the occasional hollow section, such Riyue Bay on Hainan Island in China.


While this board has all of the requisite high-performance characteristics, it also carries a lot of width to help with drive through fat sections, and has a more relaxed rocker that also provides speed when the wave doesn’t. A single concave through the nose blends with a double concave through the center of the board, and eventually a vee through the tail, providing roll for maneuverability. With all of these design elements combined together, the Blender is a board that surfs well off both the nose and the tail, and thrives in waves up to around four to five feet. It is user-friendly for beginners, but also high-performance enough for experts who want to lay down heavy turns and spend time on the nose.


Ben designed this board specifically for the 2015 longboard world championships, and ended up placing third on it, proving his design and his surfing in one fell swoop. If the board is good enough for a world championship finalist, it’s good enough for us! Come on into the shop and check it out!

Ben Skinner "Smoothie" 
SkinDog Surfboards


The Smoothie is the high performance version of The Blender, It has very similar characteristics in that it has the same flow and stability but with a pulled in tail for more powerful conditions and harder, tighter turns in general.

I have increased the nose rocker which has made it easier to surf progressively and given it the perfect speed for noseriding!



Utilizes an EPS closed cell foam with a T-shaped fiberglass stringer that is placed strategically so the board has flex on the Nose and Twist on the Tail. Flex on the nose for more control when you nose-ride. Twist on the tail for speed and better turning.

Believe or not, after years of testing and time trails, Thunderbolt Technologies discovered having a tail with twist and flex speeds up the board. That is way so many are surprised the boards are fast enough to handle surfing North Shore.

Surfs like regular fiberglass. No corky funky feeling like the other epoxy boards.
Slightly lighter than fiberglass, but designed to flex in strategic parts of the board for performance.

Much more DURABILITY than any other board in the world!
