Tolhurst Thunderbolt Mid 6 Mini Surfboard

The Mid6 range has been designed to give maximum mid-length performance in all wave types. The fine, round pin tail, curvy plan shape, smooth rocker, with a bit of nose flip is equally comfortable turning deep in the pocket or long open-face arcs. High nose rails through to mid tucked and low hard in the tail, foiled from the centre for a nice balance of drive through sections while maintaining hold through tight turning arcs. While the Mid 6 fires in everyday surf, it is tuned enough to handle some pretty serious surf comfortably. 

I feel Billy (the shaper) has blended the 6 channels perfectly. They are not so aggressive that they track in turns at all. It’s very easy to break a line or adjust your arc length anywhere on the wave’s face. With the channels balanced between your feet, when you push hard through a turn the response is immediate and the acceleration throughout is like no other board I have ever owned. It definitely breaks the channel bottom stereotype that they're only good in clean waves. I'm loving it in everything!  

Either a thruster or quad fin setup works with six channels for a positive feel. My first recommendations for thrusters would be the FCS2 large Reactors or large H4 - though far and away, I have been enjoying the Mid6 as a quad. My go to sets have been the large Reactor sides with Reactor medium rears or large Accelerator fronts with Performer medium rears. I do really like my XL quad set in the Mid6 particularly on weaker days when I prefer to have more fin to push off. For longboarders stepping down to the Mid6, I'd also lean towards my XL quad set as it will already feel particularly fast and loose. Other fin combinations may work really well but I'd suggest sticking with medium to large quad rears that have an 80/20 foil combined with any flat foiled large to XL front fins. 

This model is only available in FCS2.

About this board:

Fin Boxes: FCS2 x 5 - Fins not included
Tail shape: Round Tail
Dimensions/Litres: See size graph above
Construction: Thunderbolt Red Epoxy:

Due to the flex and speed generating qualities of the thunderbolt red construction, these boards are best suited to everyday surf conditions as they will make the most of waist to head height surf. Thunderbolt Red surfboards are hand crafter for a classic feel with enhanced response. Starting off with an EPS foam blank, a high-density foam block is installed into the blank to provide a secure anchor point for the fin box. AVT flex control components are laminated to the bottom in an A shape, then a tapered groove is cut into the deck for the AVT stringer in a T shape, which is laminated onto the deck and pressed into the groove at specific depths. 

AVT flex control components are laminated to the deck, in a V shape. This combination AVT shape defines the flex, responsiveness and feel of the board creating a waistline component which creates a pivot point for tail flex, and stores the energy generated by natural flexing and twisting forces generated during a turn, which then releases through the board and fin launching the board forward. Hand laminated fiberglass layer and PVC shell lock AVT flex control components in, then is cured in a mould for precise rocker and shape. Thunderbolt red blanks are then laminated in fibreglass giving them more flex than the black construction. 

Designed in Japan, for the world.
