Harley Ingleby surfboards distribute through Firewire, so any place that sells them should be able to order an HI board for you. Check the store locator at https://firewiresurfboards.com/find-a-surf-shop

I've been really impressed with the Harley Ingleby surfboards. And to make matters worse, Harley has another new board which I somehow missed. It is the HI-4.

The HI-4 comes in two different lengths:

9'1" x 22 9/16" x 2 4/4" @ 64.5 Liters with 5 fin boxes, 18" nose and rounded pin tail.

9'3" x 23" x 2 7/8" @ 70 Liters with 5 fin boxes, 19" nose and rounded square tail.

These two boards are rated for 1' - 9' for wave heights. I favor the 9'3" model.

Below are two videos.

The first video is the stock PR (public relations) video for it.

The second video is more for the technical aspects of the HI-4. Just wish the video was wider.

Model wise, I like the 9'3" HI - 4 which is rated for 1' - 9' wave heights and the 9'5" Cruiser which is rated for 1' - 6' wave heights. At this time, I slightly favor the 9'3" Hi - 4 over the 9'5" Cruiser.
Blue Planet Duke: 10'5" x 32" x 4.5" @ 190 Liters (2 Dukes)
Sup Sports Hammer: 8'11" x 31" x 4" @ 140 Liters
SUP Sports One World: 11'1" x 30" x 4.5" @ 173 Liters
