This is the performance longboard that Harley Ingleby rode when he won his second ASP World Longboard Title in 2014. This model is also an upgraded version of the longboard Harley rode when he won his first world title in 2009. The HIHP shaped by Billy Tolhurst is a true high performance longboard with continual curve rocker that enables direction adjustments form anywhere on the board. The HIHP is designed flat under the nose for superior planning tight in the curl. A slightly convex bottom through the middle helps keep the rails nice and free for quick rail-to-rail transitions. A spiral V with double concaves and a flat tail area behind the fins allows powerful turning in all surf sizes. Normally rode as a thruster, the addition of a quad fin box set-up improves handling in big surf where longer turns at speed are preferred.

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.
