The Fishcuit – Channel Islands
Originally developed with Rob Machado, the Fishcuit rapidly became the favorite alternative board for team riders, putting fun back into those grovel sessions. Ride your Fishcuit approximately 6-8 inches shorter than your normal short board.
Super fun, fast and loose.
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.
