The Soleil Sunkist Thunderbolt Silver Longboard. To me the yellow Sunkist represents being at the beach surfing all day long. Salty, sandy and sun kissed. This board is more performance oriented and because it has more edge the turns are faster and easier to maneuver big waves. It's fast, vibrant and fun. This board is a smaller more performance tuned version The “Velvet Hour” with similar elements. It has concave for lift on the nose and a wide tail for stability. It has performance rails which are slightly more pinched and a harder trailing edge in the tail, basically the same rail profile she had on the boards she was riding when she won her world titles.
Soleil wanted to design a board that would have smooth rail to rail response in punchy / powerful surf allowing her to seamlessly connect turns and get to the nose without losing flow. She wanted to marry this flow with stability, to be able to walk the nose and lock into the pocket for those title winning nose rides. It was critical that the performance board did not have too much divergence in character from the “Velvet hour Log” so that the transition between lengths for wave conditions would not need too much adjustment in her surfing style nor strategy. So in summary, taking all the elements that you would find in a performance longboard and applying them to a single fin performance hybrid that has the vintage “log Look” under arm. Soleil is riding a 10” fin in this model which goes really nicely with the wider tail characteristics of the shape, allowing the tail to lock into turns and not skate around too much.
Fiberglass Surfboards are not indestructible. Most are man-made, and are known to sometimes contain minor blemishes such as burned glass from the board shaper, unequal coloring from the glassing process, etc. The Surf Station is not liable to compensate for these small imperfections as they will not damper the performance or structural integrity of the surfboard.
