CJ NELSON APEX 9FT 6 SAGE
CJ Nelson’s Brand New Board—The Apex
There have been whispers about the ultimate log coming out of CJ Nelson’s workshop for a few months now—rumors that have every dedicated logger more excited than Christmas. We’ve finally gotten a look at the Apex, and it’s everything it was billed to be. Loosely based on the 1960s Involvement Log template, with a relatively narrow nose and hips set back of center, the Apex naturally gravitates toward critical noserides deep in the pocket and aggressive “hotdog” surfing. Added concave in the nose helps extend those noserides even longer, and a harder, lower, performance type rail in the tail puts the final polish on the board’s maneuverability. CJ intended this to be the apex of classic longboard design and performance, and that’s exactly what it is. Available in Thunderbolt Silver, in three sizes ranging from 9'1" to 9'11", the Apex is an homage to traditional longboarding, but with a modern twist.
|9'1"||23 1/2"||3 1/4"||78.6L|
|9'6"||23 3/4"||3 8/25"||86.0L|
Utilizes an EPS closed-cell foam with a T-shaped fiberglass stringer that is placed strategically so the board has flex on the Nose and Twist on the Tail. Flex on the nose for more control when you nose-ride. Twist on the tail for speed and better turning. Believe it or not, after years of testing and time trails, Thunderbolt Technologies discovered having a tail with twist and flex speeds up the board. That is why so many are surprised the boards are fast enough to handle surfing North Shore. Surfs like regular fiberglass. No corky funky feeling like the other epoxy boards. Slightly lighter than fiberglass, but designed to flex in strategic parts of the board for performance. Much more DURABILITY than any other board in the world!
