Here's a sneak preview of a new model from Channel Islands. The Black Flag Whip. I saw these first hand at the factory this morning and they look pretty amazing. They will be available in October. The Black Flag Whip is available in sizes from 5'8 - 6'6. We are taking orders now!! We've also been lucky enough to secure a limited edition, one of only 75 made WORLDWIDE (Shaped in Santa Barbara). It will be the exact replica of what Kelly rode when he won Bells. They are all signed and numbered by Kelly Slater himself. For some more information check out www.cisurfboards.com
The Black Flag Whip:: MODEL DESCRIPTION Kelly's latest edition to his small wave arsenal is now available as the Black Flag Whip. The same shorter, wider Whip outline now has Al's single to double Tri Plane Hull bottom. Kelly finds the board is fast and has an even more responsive feel than the previous single concave version. A double concave deck gets your feet closer to the water line . We have also added carbon fiber strips on the bottom stretching from the nose to the leading fins. Stopping the carbon fiber near the leading fins concentrates the flex in the tail, thus providing more spring out of turns. The half moon tail option breaks up the rail line and gives the board more release out of the top of the wave. FEEDBACK Should be ridden 3-4 inches smaller than your shortboard, 1/4" wider and the same thickness. DESIGNED FOR Everyday use by intermediate to expert surfers in knee to head high surf.
