9′2″ x 23″ x 3″ - 74.5L / Single Fin System
The SPROUT is the ultimate performance noserider. Period!
This board is a workhorse for the traditional longboarder. A “Classic” California inspired template, designed by CJ and Ryan, to be extremely neutral in its intention. Very fast and loose off the tail and stable on the nose. The Classic has a very even rocker profile with a slight step deck and tail which allows this board to flow and manoeuvre with ease while remaining a versatile nose rider. Absolutely no hang ups anywhere. A dynamic rolled bottom in the nose blending to a modern down rail in the tail allows you to push through and drive out of your bottom turns and carry speed through your cutbacks. The Classic is a traditional longboard with modern touches that makes this one of the easiest longboards to connect with. 100% control and responsiveness at all times. A perfect longboard to take anywhere and ride with confidence. This is a favourite of the whole team.
Technology - Thunderbolt Red
Thunderbolt Technology utilizes advanced materials and technology to decrease weight while enhancing performance, flex characteristics, board control, and durability.
Mass-produced epoxy boards are corky and stiff. While light and durable, they simply don’t ride well. But Thunderbolt’s hand-built boards take superior epoxy materials to an entirely different level. These boards provide the feel and sensitivity of a good poly board, but deliver performance far beyond traditional epoxy pop-out constructions. Indeed, those who ride these high-tech epoxy boards claim they actually feel better than polyurethane.
Thunderbolt boards are 100% hand layups. They begin with an EPS foam core with multi-component carbon fiber stringer systems that produce engineered flex and twist for a more lively, responsive performance. Proprietary designs employing internal carbon fiber components are then arrayed in the deck and bottom of the deck for precise flex control and strength.
The core shield PVC provides flexible protection to increase strength and durability without compromising the flex and twist characteristics built into the blank. With ample carbon fiber and fiberglass in the deck, bottom, and rails, these boards both outperform and outlast traditional PU boards and other epoxy designs.
