LIGHTNING BOLT FESTIVAL

50th anniversary a golden era

 

Fifty years have passed since the first Lightning Bolt crossed the Hawaiian waves.
Since then, the world has changed. But Lightning Bolt remained authentic.

This is what better defines us and what you can find: the truest experiences. A reconnection with the origins. A meaningful existence.

From that Summer of ’71 until our days many stories were written by Lightning Bolt.
There is an undeniable legacy. The brand is now a mythic symbol of a lifestyle and philosophy. A Pure Source.

Here’s to fifty years of history: a golden era. And a lot more to come!

UNIQUE SURFBOARDS

Beautiful, finely crafted Hawaiian guns were at the foundation of Lightning Bolt, back in a time when Hawaiian surfers were energized by the Shortboard Revolution.

From that moment on, Lightning Bolt never stopped looking for the best shapers and shapes. Only the best for the best would be enough.

Nowadays, Lightning Bolt is proud to have gathered again amazing people that share its values and philosophy.

Lightning Bolt keeps strong bonds with its forefathers and endorses legendary riders and young soul adventurers. Indeed, they embrace all the Bolt enthusiasts and friends.

Gerry Lopez, Rory Russell, Tom Parrish, Reno Abellira, Barry Kanaiaupuni, Craig Hollingsworth, Paul Blacker, Pat Rawson, Duke Aipa, among others, are Official Lightning Bolt Shapers.
