The HiHp Round Square is a slightly wider version of the original HiHp with a little more support in the back half.
For a lot of years Harley’s boards were being tuned to suit really hollow waves and the ASP World Longboard Tour at the time were powerful locations like southern France, Hawaii, Peru, Costa Rica and the Maldives where Harley won his first World Title. More recently we found the need to cater for not so powerful waves also with the longboard tour moving to the weaker wind swells of Italy and China, so we started to rework our planshape curve to be more supportive in average waves.
The rocker, bottom shape, rail style and fin setup have remained the same.

New Thunderbolt Brushed Construction
They’re basically the exact same internal flex pattern and strength as the 2017 Thunderbolt Red blanks, but we’ve upgraded to a more efficient external lamination weight with the Xeon glass, which brings the XEON Fiberglass boards in at effectively the same weight as the carbon fiber laminations. Furthermore, now the best performance flex pattern for everyday conditions also hits my ideal weight for contests and fun – Harley Ingleby
Harley Ingleby Surfboard Technology
The Harley Ingleby Series shaped by Billy Tolhurst is designed with Thunderbolt Technologies, utilizing advanced materials and technology in surfboard design that decreases weight while taking performance, flex, and control to the next level.
These lightweight epoxy constructions are 100% hand layups, and begin with an EPS foam core with multi-component carbon fiber stringer system, for high performance flex and twist. Proprietary designs employing internal carbon fiber components are arrayed in the deck and rails for precise flex control and strength.
The core shield PVC shell provides flexible protection to increase the longevity of the boards without compromising flex and twist characteristics. With a substantial amount of carbon fiber and fiberglass in the deck, bottom, and rails, surfboards in the Harley Ingleby Series will outperform and outlast traditionally constructed polyester comp boards.
Boards you find here are the exact models that Harley rides. While free surfing and training, Harley pulls out models featuring the BLUE Thunderbolt Technology Construction. These are true high performance boards that have extra carbon fiber internal elements that make them very strong. For competition, Harley often goes with the even lighter weight Thunderbolt RED construction in his HIHP model…sacrificing a bit of strength for the ultimate in responsiveness and lightest weight. We can’t tell you all of the ingredients to the secret sauce, but scroll down to the technology graphics below to see what goes into making these 100% hand layup models perform like lightning.
