LIGHTNING BOLT COLLECTOR PIPELINER LIMITED SERIES EXHIBIT AT ROYALCHEESE
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.
Today’s Retailer :: ROYALCHEESE TURENNE, PARIS showcasing the GERRY LOPEZ PIPELINER 7’6”
Tell us a bit about the concept behind Royalcheese Turenne…
Royalcheese Turenne is our flagship store. Its selection is based on heritage and authenticity, a store with the concept “lifestyle” with a strong identity “old manufacture” in its decor.
What does Lightning Bolt mean to you?
Lightning Bolt is an inspiration for us in this authentic tradition, an ambassador of surf wear as a way of living.
If Gerry Lopez was in Paris, where would you take him?
I think I would take him to the canal St. Martin to see if he can surf the Parisian waves…
Sébastien Papeguay – Royalcheese Buyer
