Created by Britt Merrick from what was initially the Two Happy performance shortboard model, the Happy Everyday fills a need in every surfer’s quiver: the everyday shortboard.

Coming off the heels of CI’s Pro Team loving the Two Happy, Britt wanted to draft off its performance attributes but modify it to address the everyday conditions most of us come up against - The kind of conditions where you want to rip and aren’t feeling the groveler vibes, and at the same time maybe not quite the epic stuff you would use your high performance shortboard for.

To achieve this goal, Britt shortened the rail to create a curvier outline, especially through the tail area. For both the entry and exit rockers he lowered them to increase paddle and planing speeds to cover a broader range of conditions. The single concave under the front foot acts as a gas pedal and generous double concave through the fins provides rail-to-rail ease and plenty of lift in the small stuff.

The CI Pro Team has been loving it, and the design was further validated in the Stab in the Dark that featured Taj Burrow in West Oz—not only for the way it looked under his feet but the fact he chose to paddle out on as the wildcard for WSL’s Rottnest Islands event.

The Happy Everyday is a great all-around design that sits right between your high performance shortboard (Two Happy) and a step down/groveler (Rocket Wide). In short, a board designed for high performance surfing on the majority of waves the majority of us surf every day, the Happy Everyday.

Construction: ECT EPS (Read more about ECT below)
Glassing: Stock: Prolite - 6oz deck/ 4 oz bottom = strength of a Ultralight: 4+4/4
Fin Boxes: FCS2/Futures x 5 

Channel Island's Eco Carbon Tech (ECT) construction creates a livelier EPS epoxy board.

Using a carbon resin that allows for a more traditional feeling flex pattern, albeit a more dynamic one that enhances any board’s performance.

Compression tested, ECT is 15% stronger than a standard lamination. The best feeling boards are equally balanced deck and bottom, often times why a team rider uses single 4oz deck with a single 4oz bottom. Unfortunately, single 4oz decks are not durable enough for the average surfer. ECT allows us to bring the performance of a single layer of glass with the durability of two layers.

ECT is more familiar feeling than other type of carbon build ECT is more familiar feeling than other type of carbon build. Most carbon-built boards are quite stiff, and don’t dent on the deck, which creates a rigid shell around the board, making its flex foreign feeling. 

ECT enhances the level of performance you’ve been accustomed to from your standard shortboard
