3D WOOD CORE
Naturally dynamic. The CNC milled, long grained, Paulownia wood core gives the Bolt 3 unmatched dimensional stability, excellent decay resistance and its powerful character. The production process extends the wood core very close to the board edge, thereby reducing board weight.
Extreme grip even without fins. We added more channels and beefed up the remaining ones. More channels increase lateral resistance especially when finless. And deeper channels improve board speed by reducing the wetted surface area and thereby reducing hydrodynamic drag.
We beveled the channels to add a little low-speed lateral slippage, so botched landings are more forgiving.
Inspired by the legendary handling of deep Vee powerboats in rough waters, we added progressive V-shaped keels to each tip leaving the area between the boots nice and flat. The design eats chop and delivers a surprisingly comfortable ride.
Variable rail thickness. For better control. The Bolt 3 features 9.5mm thick rails near the center of the board that reduces to 3mm at the tips.
Diamond shaped perfection. Look closely at the Bolt 3’s surface contours. On the tips, you’ll notice diamond-shaped recesses. The refined contours reduce weight and direct torsional forces to the fins and edges where you want them for a perfect balance between flex and rigidity.
The Bolt 3 features a progressive freestyle rocker that is most pronounced in the middle. Board curvature is then reduced towards the tips. Individual flex patterns are built into each board size to lock in the best performance possible. Without giving away our secrets, good flex and bad (aka negative rocker) flex is managed by varying the lamination thicknesses during production. A super hard landing, for example, can create a negative rocker between your feet. We worked very hard to eliminate bad flex, so those rock hard landings are easier to stick. Not to worry, the Bolt 3 is still deliciously fun when you are not “in training” mode. Go hard. Or easy. Either way, you’ll love it.
PRO FIX GRINDBASE
The snowboard inspired base. The waxy surface you feel on the new Bolt 3 is high-modulus polyethylene, a material with superior sliding properties especially over rails, ramps, and other water features. And just like snowboards, scratches and dings can be quickly repaired with any PTEX candle as long as the gouge has not penetrated the Pro Fix Grindbase and damaged the core.
RAIL READY BASE
Built for the slickest sliders.
The channels are beveled and countersunk between the boots
to create a perfect sliding platform.
So, grind away!
BOOT TOUGH INSERTS
Boots only for this baby. Heavy-duty, stainless steel, V4A thread inserts are laminated into a massively reinforced base plate deep within the board. And laminated again in targeted areas to be sure. The boot inserts provide three different stance options.
28MM + 42MM G10 FINS
Prepared for anything. The Bolt comes with two, full, G10 fin sets: the super grippy 42mm fins and the 28mm ones for a looser wakestyle feel. Still too much fin? No problem. Go finless and enjoy the ride.
