Lightning Bolt invited five of the most unique, inspirational and legendary Bolt shapers to shape a surfboard that they personally find emblematic of the era. It took three years and a lot of courtesies to have a Collector Series of Pipeliners consisting of the most memorable Bolt boards of all time. Our mission is to show these masterpieces to the World.
After showcasing these boards as a full set at premium locations, Lightning Bolt is now exhibiting the Pipeliners at different retail shops separately in different countries.


What does Lightning Bolt mean to you?

It is the authentic and most original surf brand you can get with a great story to tell 

If Barry Kanaiaupuni was in Copenhagen where would you take him?

I would probably take him to Christiania, a small free-town here in Copenhagen.
And also a place called Papiroen, great place to hang out

Tells us about your project/shop/concept

My shop is a big part of me and my family. Here I can do and show what I believe is the the brands and looks I think is right for me and my shop. Hopefully the customer that comes here can see that everything is carefully selected and with our personal touch to back it up.
We also try to be active in what happens in the local area.

Thanks to Kristian Ulriksen
