BEN SKINNER - SKIN DOG "BLENDER"
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.
“I built this board primarily for open-faced waves of all sizes, but preserved the necessary performance design features to handle hollow sections as well. I first rode this board in the 2015 World Longboard Tour event in China, and ended up finishing 3rd in the world—so I can assure you the design works!”
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!
