Harley Ingleby Series by Billy Tolhurst

The Harley Ingleby Series shaped by Billy Tolhurst is designed with Thunderbolt Technologies, utilizing advanced materials and proprietary construction techniques that decrease weight while taking performance, flex and control to the next level.

“Thunderbolt Technologies is the best constructions I’ve ever used and worked with.” – Harley Ingleby

The HiHp is the model Harley rode to his 2009 and 2014 ASP World Longboard Titles. Continual rocker and full HP plan shape makes this board great for round house cutbacks, open face carving and fitting 9 foot of rail in hollow pockets. Harley surfs the HiHp as a thruster in normal performance conditions for maximum looseness or snaps in his FCS2 quad set on bigger or hollower days for more hold and down the line speed.

The Diamond Drive is Harley’s small wave high performance longboard. It has a flatter rocker for additional trim speed and more plan shape curve between your feet to tighten up your turns to suit smaller waves.

This surfboard has a three stage rocker developed for the small waves with long wall that we all love to ride longboards on – up to the front for noseriding – in the middle of trimming – down the back for turning. The nose area has a very slight blended concave within a light convex bottom, which transitions into a spiral V with double concaves and a flat tail behind the fins. Designed with Thunderbolt Technology, the Harley Ingleby Diamond Drive is the perfect small wave performance board to compliment the HIHP. Shaped by Billy Tolhurst.

The Cruiser is Harley’s everyday fun longboard. A traditional style plan shape and soft rails rails meets light weight and multi fin option makes this board very adaptable to different styles of surfer and waves. The flatter rocker makes this board paddle and trim really well and the soft rails and light weight allow it to go rail to rail very easily! Harley prefers the cruiser as a quad for nose riders and turns. Old School feeling with modern usability.

As the name implies, this is a really fun board with lightweight epoxy construction. The Cruiser Performance Longboard is designed with low continual rocker, and smooth control. The wide point at the center gives a nice neutral planshape. Convex bottom throughout with 60/40 small end of the egg rails. Comfortable as a single, twin, thruster or quad fin, so we give you all the fin boxes to play around with. The Harley Ingleby Cruiser model is designed with Thunderbolt Technologies and shaped by Billy Tolhurst.

When I started out designing the MOE mid-length range I wanted to have an easy ride and good paddling, while keeping good stability and support. I think this is important because many new surfers often choose boards in this size range and I wanted to cater for all surfers. The bottom is pretty flat with a double concave between your feet, a really good combination for carving turns in a wide board. Rails are not too thick, for sensitivity, and they transition from neutral round forward through round tucked edge to the fin area and low hard behind the fins. The rails are foiled from forward of center toward the tail, for drive through turns and good travel around white water sections.

The fin setup is Thruster/Quad and large size FCS II fins such as large Carver or the Harley Ingleby FCS II set if you like bigger fins. The wide standing area allows the surfer to stay in the sweet spot during the whole ride, even across dead sections. The Moe model is a high performance, carving, mid-length surfboard that is suitable for all levels of surfing. – Shaper Billy Tolhurst

The Minion is Harley’s everyday small wave shortboard. Wider tail helps float over dead sections and round pod allows tight turns in small pockets. Don’t be fooled by the Minions small wave board appearance! It’ll handle waves well over heads well. This board absolutely flies!

I think these boards are the best things I have ever shaped. They are not just asymmetric, but are two totally different small wave boards which merge together somewhere near the middle.

In the Autumn of 1970 I was working with Bob Cooper. There was only the two of us, both shaping with Bob doing all the glassing, sanding and finishing as I was still in high school.

Surfboards were changing so quickly at this time that new boards were being outdated before they were even finished.

We were making asymmetrical surfboards to see what different things did, plus we had the idea that you could benefit from having different curves frontside to backside. This was pretty common on the east coast of Australia at this time with lots of guys heading down this road looking for answers to the as yet unknown questions.

We’d each shape an asymmetric board differently then Bob would laminate it, stick on a fin and hot coat it. A quick grind around the base of the fin and a foil job then down to the beach to try them out. We did this on a remote beach near town so no one saw us.

One surf was usually enough to find out something relevant.

Bob would then sand, pinline and gloss these boards and put them in his shop.

We got to understand more about surfboards in those three months than I had ever known before, or probably found out since.

We played with rockers as well as plan shape curves, foils, bottom shapes and fin shapes and their positions.

When Harley came to me a few years ago and started talking asymmetric I said pick two boards, tell me which side for each and I’ll get it sorted.

Never really went any further because he couldn’t decide which board he wanted and where, but never stopped mentioning that he still wanted one.

Early 2016 Harley bought it up yet again, I repeated my earlier statement but added small wave, instantly he said BT Twin Fin forehand and Blackhseep III ( Minion ) backhand, as Harley was travelling to the Gold Coast the next day I got him to buy a thick blank that we could get the thing out of, not quite knowing how to attack this I wanted plenty of room to move.

He came back with it and wanted to do it instantly; like yesterday. I was laminating so I said you go and do it, It’s your board.

When I’d finished laminating, I went to check it out and he had done a great job of joining the two planshapes and then we started fiddling and talking a lot about how to combine two different rockers and bottom shapes without detriment to either side.

This is about when I took over and the Twinion kind of just fell into place.

What we ended up with is a surfboard that  surfs like a twin fin forehand with the positive feel and drive of a quad off the top and in cutbacks. When surfing backhand waves, the bottom turns are without any of the twin fin twice that some surfers have trouble with whilst snappy top turns and accelerating cutbacks are a reality. Overall a really fun board.

The Twinion exceeded all expectations and when the Thunderbolt guys saw footage they wanted to make a couple.
