Welcoming Ben Skinner to the Hawaiian South Shore Team

Coming from the UK, you have may not have heard much about Ben “Skindog” Skinner in the past—but we have a feeling that is about to change. From a successful junior career in Britain to a third-place finish in the longboarding world championships in 2015, Skinner’s star has been on the rise for a while now, and every year his reputation as a surfer grows. And recently, his reputation as a shaper has taken off as well.

Like many professional longboarders, Skinner has an intimate understanding of what makes a good surfboard, and he has been shaping his own line of logs for years now. As his international following continues to grow, so has the interest in his boards, and he is now shaping for shops and surfers all over the world. He has also teamed up with Thunderbolt Technology, which provides cutting-edge surfboard construction. Skinner is joined in the Thunderbolt family by surfer/shaper/designers such as CJ Nelson and Harley Ingleby, and is right at home in that elite company.

Hawaiian South Shore is stoked to be carrying Skinner’s boards (built with Thunderbolt Technology), and we are pretty sure you will be stoked as well when you get a chance to check them out. From performance longboards such as the Blender and the Smoothie to ultra-fun single-fins like the Wrangler, Skinner’s boards are the perfect choice to help you transition from summer sliding into the coming fall/winter El Nino.

Hand made custom surfboards designed and shaped in England by Ben Skinner

Skindog surfboards are crafted by some of the industries' bests. They come together to make boards that both perform, whatever your level and are some of the best-finished surfboards in Europe. We pride ourselves on adding beauty to all our shapes -resin tints, pin lines, unique sprays, metallics, and bespoke artwork.

Review from our Customer

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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
