We ventured to Chambers Creek in Tacoma, Washington with Isaac Thomas to talk a bit about his 2016 pro model and shred a bit in the creek.
About the 2016 Thomas Pro
The 2016 Thomas Pro skimboard features a twin tip shape that supports riding either direction. Vertically symmetrical side-cuts to help the board glide straight directly from your toss. Added surface area in the nose and tail gives the board more POP! plus more room for your feet when steezin' out your blunt slides.
All new construction features a technical composite layup that's been in development since 2010. The core of the board is built from vertically laminated bamboo. The bamboo is CNC machined to create a structural skeleton for the board. We replace the bamboo we remove with lightweight high-density foam and cap the edge with a durable urethane edge. The base and top sheet of this board is made of HPL for its durability and structural support. Triaxial fiberglass and epoxy resin are implemented to create an incredibly stiff (our stiffest board) and responsive flex that stands the test of time. To cap things off this board features a full SUPER CUSH EVA foam top for wax free traction and extra cushioning.
