BLENDER

ALL-ROUND PERFORMANCE

VERSATILE, USER-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE BOARD THAT HANDLES FROM KNEE-HIGH TO WELL OVERHEAD, AND EXCELS IN OPEN-FACED, RIPPABLE WAVES.

The Blender is shaped for high-performance surfing, and features a wider overall template and a somewhat relaxed rocker (compared to a comp board built for hollow waves), making it more forgiving and allowing it to thrive in anything from knee-high slop to solid, down-the-line, open-faced peelers. This combination of design elements makes for an all-round performance board that turns on a dime, glides through flat sections, and locks you in when nose riding.

SMOOTHIE

PERFORMANCE LONGBOARD

BUILT FOR SERIOUS PERFORMANCE LONGBOARDING

The Smoothie is a high-octane performance longboard built to excel in powerful, hollow waves. The pulled in tail fits well in the pocket, providing control through turns, while the increased rocker lends itself to high-performance surfing without compromising the ability to nose ride. While this board can be ridden in virtually all conditions, it is Ben’s go-to board in substantial surf when conditions get proper.

“When the waves are good, this is the board I turn to, every time.” – Ben Skinner

WRANGLER

SINGLE-FIN PERFORMANCE

CLASSIC STYLE MEETS MODERN PERFORMANCE IN THIS SMOOTH-RIDING SINGLE-FIN

A clean, curvy outline that carries its width through the tail and nose gives the Wrangler the timeless glide of a classic longboard, while a continuous curved rocker with an added kick on the tail lends itself to extended noserides and increased flow through turns. 50/50 rails throughout the front 2/3 of the board transitions into a tucked, hard edge that runs through the tail, providing the perfect blend of traditional longboarding with the ability to push hard through turns.

PEACEMAKER

THE PEACEMAKER BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN


TRADITIONAL AND PERFORMANCE LONGBOARDING


The board’s features show clear characteristics from both ends of the longboarding spectrum. A big concave through the nose running down into the back third of the board, flowing into a V inside a double concave through the tail. The combination results in creating massive lift whilst on the nose and responsive turns whilst tail surfing. The rails are key to this design’s ability to surf this board any way you like, with a lifted Apex in the rail through the nose gradually blending into a low apex and edge through the tail, giving you great response off the tail when you want it and the feel you expect from a classic traditional design when in the trim or upfront.
The combination of a wider nose, magic rocker, and a rounded pintail gives this model incredible glide and stability on the nose, with the ability to flow through sections from anywhere you stand, making this the most responsive traditional longboard we have developed.

Reviews from our Customers

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The 9’1” Ben Skinner (Thunderbolt Technologies) Smoothie was the board that caught my eye. This carbon fiber board is narrower, thinner, and way lighter than the other longboards that I own. 

I had some serious doubts and reservations about buying this board. Could an old man like me ride something like this? Well, I surfed two different waves that happened to have some size… Diamond Head and Pops. 

I was ecstatically blown away by the board’s speed, maneuverability, and handling capability. It was like riding a hybrid longboard/shortboard. I never knew that I could move like that on a wave. 

Thank you David for helping me choose this amazing board. --Gary
