Thunderbolt Mid 6 - Thunderbolt Red
The Mid6 range has been designed to give maximum mid-length performance in all wave types. The fine, round pin tail, curvy plan shape, smooth rocker, with a bit of nose flip is equally comfortable turning deep in the pocket or long open-face arcs. High nose rails through to mid tucked and low hard in the tail, foiled from the centre for a nice balance of drive through sections while maintaining hold through tight turning arcs. While the Mid 6 fires in everyday surf, it is tuned enough to handle some pretty serious surf comfortably.
Either a thruster or quad fin setup works with six channels for a positive feel. Our first recommendations for thrusters would be the FCS2 large Reactors or large H4 - though far and away, I have been enjoying the Mid6 as a quad. The go to sets have been the large Reactor sides with Reactor medium rears or large Accelerator fronts with Performer medium rears. For longboarders stepping down to the Mid6, We'd also recommend leaning towards a quad set as it will already feel particularly fast and loose. Other fin combinations may work really well but we'd suggest sticking with medium to large quad rears that have an 80/20 foil combined with any flat foiled large to XL front fins.
