5 Collector Boards, 5 Shapers, 5 Countries, 5 Stores # SS17 Edition

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.

Tell us a bit about the concept behind Dreist Shop…
The concept of Dreist is very easy. We called Dreist: The House of Raw Enthusiasm. We sell a lot of raw denim, but beside that we want to sell everything that gives people a happy and enthusiastic feeling. Most of our customers are 30+ of age. We want to surprise them with good old brands and stuff they know from their child time. Feeling comfortable at Dreist in a perfect atmosphere is our first priority!

What does Lightning Bolt mean to you?
I’m a non-surfer. But everything about and around Lightning Bolt fascinates me. I feel the nostalgia. When I saw the collection at the capsule show 3 years ago in Berlin, I recognized immediately the brand that I knew from the 70’s. It gives me and the store a feeling of joy, independency, and enthusiasm! So much Energy around the

If Reno Abellira was in Aachen, where would you take him?
Aachen is a small city but has a big history! Emperor Karl lived here and a lot of ancient places of the emperor Karl time are preserved. I would like to take Reno to all these places, like the Dom, the ancient theatre, the fountain with thermal water and a lot more….
