• Average Joe – Channel Islands

    Over the last six years and hundreds of stops on our demo tour we have learned a few things. One of those is that surfers sometimes want something simple, fun, and easy to ride.
    Light single concave for the first 1/3 to deepening concave vee throughout. The Joe can be surfed off the rail or tail that has Al’s signature hip tail template to keep drive. Full rails keep high volume in a short outline.

    Increase wave count, make more sections. The average Joe is geared towards the things that makes surfing fun.

    Channel Islands first and foremost is performance based and athlete driven, but not everyone’s next paycheck hinges on how critical their equipment works.

  • Black Beauty (Conner Coffin) – Channel Islands

    The Black Beauty has become one of our most popular step up boards. A replica of Tom Curren’s famous 1985 Bell’s Beach, Occy beating, and world title winning board. Vee bottom makes this a great board for good waves.

    Power, speed and flow are timeless cornerstones of good style.

    The trend to shorter and wider boards has come at the expense of drive, and with top surfers around the globe revisiting power surfing, the timeless design of Curren’s 1985 Black Beauty has not gone unnoticed. As evident by Connor Coffin’s recent performance at Jeffrey’s Bay this board is the gold standard for those seeking to surf with pure power and style.

    CI is proudly offering a newly scaled version of Tom Curren’s Black Beauty based off Conner’s 6’0” he rode in High Line and the same board that landed him on the cover of Surfer Magazine.

  • DFR – Channel Island

    No, not the “Dane Fred Rubble” the DFR is a new design from Dane freaking Reynolds. An ultra-modern short board, the plan-shape allows for a short rail line while maintaining drive. The bottom is predominately single concave and features an aggressive flip in exit rail rocker.
    A full outline provides enough volume to ride the DFR about the same length as your height. This short board is not only ready for big airs but also allows for the heaviest carves you can lay down.

    Dane rides his DFR his own height. 6’0″ x 19″ x 2 3/8″

  • Fred Rubble (Round tail 5 fin) – Channel Islands

    The Channel Islands Fred Rubble is actually quite a bit different than my other boards. It has a lower entry rocker and a wider outline. It has more volume than a Proton, but it isn’t really short and chunky like a Dumpster Diver. It’s just a fun board for waves from waist high to a little over head. I’ve been riding mine two inches shorter than my standard shortboard and 1/4 inch wider. For example, my standard shortboard is a 5’11″ x 18 3/8″ x 2 3/16″ Proton and I ride my Fred Rubble as a 5’9″ x 18 5/8″ x 2 3/16″.

  • Fred Stubble (Round tail 5 fin) – Channel Islands

    When Conner Coffin asked for all the characteristics of the award-winning Fred Rubble to be condensed in a shorter, wider package specifically for contests in small surf; the Fred Stubble was born.

    Geared towards contest surfing in sub-chest high conditions, the Stubble boasts a wider nose and tail, reduced nose and tail rocker, single entry concave with magnified double barrel concave through the fins and vee upon exit. The design change produced a board that stays on rail even in flat spots, glides over reo sections, draws tight arcs in the smallest pockets, and paddles like a board 3” longer. Conner rode a Stubble to a victory in the 2013 US Open Juniors.

  • Neckbeard – Channel Islands

    After a year of tinkering with different concepts, Dane Reynolds launches the Neck Beard, his favorite free-surf board. No longer working to hide volume from the judges like with the Dumpster Diver, Dane is letting it all hang out with a wider nose and chop tail. With light single concave and vee out the back, this board is faster down the line, has increased rail-to-rail transition, and is more stable when landing airs. Super user-friendly, this is the board Dane grabs when its 1-foot to head-high.

    Dane rides the Neck Beard as a tri-fin and as a quad for speed. Comes with a five fin setup to get the best of both worlds. If you are a fan of the Dumpster Diver, then definitely grow out your Neck Beard. Order yours 4 to 6 inches shorter than your height.

  • Semi Pro 12 5 fin – Channel Islands

    The Channel Islands Semi Pro 12 – Rounded Pin

    Taking his favorite aspects of the Tangent and Proton, Kelly designed the Semi-Pro on the computer from start to finish. Riding it to three WCT wins and a 10th world title, his design proved itself as the ultimate all-around shortboard. The Semi-Pro should be ridden shorter than usual: Kelly likes to ride them with his normal dims but his same height (5’9”). This shorter rail allows for his tight signature arcs in the pocket. Deep single concave make the board work best on rail, and ample rocker allows for deep gouging carves. With the wide point 2 inches behind center and increased nose-width, this board still handles mushy days. The Semi- Pro is changing the way professional surfers ride their boards.

  • Sperm Whale – Channel Islands

    Put Dane in a blue room with a block of foam, throw out the measuring tools, freehand the outline, eyeball your fin placement, and you have the ingredients for something completely different from CI. While the Sperm Whale is not for everyone, those with some wave knowledge and a penchant for challenge can find an entirely different groove.

  • T Low (Square tail) – Channel Islands

    R&D on the T-Low began with Tanner Gudauskas seeking a lower rockered shortboard and has resulted in an ultra-forgiving all-around performance board.

    The plan shape of the T-Low takes a different path than the extreme curves in the DFR andProton by utilizing medium entry and low exit rockers. T-Low bottom contours combine single concave at the 12” mark to flat exit through the back fin. The rails are tapered so consider riding this board 1/16” thicker than your DFRRubbleProtonRookie, etc.

    The T-Low has proven to be a unique design, being user friendly and still meeting World Tour requirements as evident by Tanner’s surfing and Dane Reynolds riding a T-Low prototype to a 2012 CT final in France. Tanner says, “If you could take one board on a trip this would be it.”

  • The # 4 (Groveller) – Channel Islands

    A performance based California utility board, the “four” was the fourth board in a series of numbered concept boards built for Dane Reynolds just prior to the 2012 US Open. Each concept board incorporated a blend of single to double with vee, 13”+ nose and 15”+ tail with a double bump. After a few months of tweaks and refinements, the result is a design that can be ridden in two different dimension sets to dial in the type of waves and conditions you ride. Dane rides a 5’8” x 19 1/2 a 2 7/16 as a GROVELER and a 5’9” 19 1/4 x 2 7/16” as a UTILITY board.

  • The Biscuit – Channel Islands

    A short and stubby tri-fin: the biscuit design was developed with Rob Machado. Like Rob, the Biscuit rides free and easy in the smallest surf and catches waves like boards a foot longer.
    Order your biscuit 8” shorter, 1” to 2” wider and ½ to ¾” thicker than your shortboard.
    “…foam is your friend…don’t be scared of it. A little bit of extra foam here and there is good for the soul… and your surfing.” – Rob

  • The Motorboat – Channel Islands

    Rob Machado wanted to bridge the gap between his Biscuit and Gravy, the Motorboat does that. Low entry rocker along with single to double concave with vee make this board really motor. Super fast and fun in flat faced waves, the Motorboat blends performance and volume into the ideal small to medium wave performance board.

    Motorboats are built with either “Greenfoam” or recycled EPS, UV cure resins, and recycled fins, as Rob also wanted to make the Motorboat less impactful on the environment. A limited edition run of 75 boards signed by Rob are planned to have foam waste combined with concrete for water fountains commissioned by Rob’s foundation for schools. Size: Knee to slightly overhead; Skill: Novice to advanced

  • The Pod – Channel Islands

    The Pod, an inspiration in Kelly’s for new surfboards and design direction, is built to fly. Deep concaves with a foiled nose and a swallow tail keep the Pod lively and maintains its high performance. The “snub” nose puts volume forward, allowing for maximum planing and wave catching. The wide, curvy outline makes the Pod friendly for all levels of surfers. Ride this board 6” to 8” shorter, about 1 1/2” wider and about 1/8” thicker.
    Also available in a quad set-up.

  • Weirdo Ripper – Channel Islands

    For that small to medium all-around board in your quiver is the Yadin Nicol-created “Weirdo Ripper.” Development began with Yadin in a CI shaping bay getting weird on Al’s Pod design. The Weirdo Ripper spent over a year behind the scenes in development with Kelly, Dane, Nathaniel and Yadin until ultimately being unveiled at the 2012 US Open by Dane Reynolds, who displayed the board’s advantages in the tricky Huntington conditions.

    The Weirdo Ripper is a user friendly design, full volume for easy paddling, wide point forward, V bottom, square-winged swallow that works well as a thruster or quad.

    Ride the Weirdo 2” to 5” shorter than your height.
