HARLEY INGLEBY "HI4"
Harley Ingleby’s HI4 is a scaled-up version of the HIHP, adding more nose width to support trim and noserides through softer sections, and a continuous rocker for smooth, flowing turns. While still capable of the progressive surfing the original HIHP is designed for, the HI4 is more user-friendly and enjoys increased volume to maintain speed through weaker waves. Built for beginners through expert surfers, this board is capable of excelling in overhead waves, but thrives in waist- to chest-high waves lacking in power and strength. The addition of Thunderbolt Technology adds strength and durability to the board, making it a good option for a one-board quiver. Meanwhile, the flex and lightweight characteristics of the tech increases the board’s performance aspects, making it even more rippable.
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!
