Channel Islands - Meet the Range

Since 1969, Channel Islands Surfboards has been dedicated to creating performance and high quality surfboards through hard work, innovation and originality.

Over the last 43-years, CI has grown from a local grass-roots operation to a cutting edge organisation, catering to the best surfers in the world as well as millions of everyday surfers worldwide. It started with hardcore surfing and quality in mind and these guidelines have carried the world's most iconic surfboard brand through four decades of constant change in the industry. Whether you are a seasoned pro, or a beginner, just stepping off a foamy, there is a Channel Islands board for everyone.

Black and White

Spine Tek Construction

An all around, high performance shortboard designed for down the line speed and easy rail-to-rail transitions, the Black and White is based on a favourite hand shape that Britt Merrick made Dane Reynolds for the Santa Barbara area pointbreaks. While designed for the points there, this board will work well in decent surf, from around shoulder high and up. The Black and White has a fairly low entry rocker, a staged flat-ish section between the feet, and an accelerated kick out the tail. A single concave runs the length of the board, is deepest near the front fins and shallows into a hint of vee exiting the tail block. A flat deck design helps you feel closer to the water and more engaged on rail. All the above is coupled with CI’s SPINE-TEK; an innovative stringer spine that uses fibreglass and resin to create a more lively and responsive feel. Using the principles of elastic and kinetic energy, the spine can flex under pressure and then return the board back to its original rocker. This process enables the surfboard to generate additional drive, speed, power and flow rather than the surfer having to manually create this inertia (reduced surfer fatigue = more hours in the surf.)

The Fever is the new accessible, all-round high performance shortboard from Channel Islands. Designed in collaboration with Mike Andrews and Pat Gudauskas and with inspiration from the Proton, the Rookie and MBM. The Fever is designed so that any competent shortboarder can jump on and instantly feel the speed and zest for creativity. A great performance shortboard that will not only work in great waves, but in less than perfect set ups alike.

OG Flyer

The OG Flyer Surfboard is the re-release of the Flyer model that has been CI's most popular shortboard shape for the past two decades; a board that bucked the tradition of super thin and narrow designs of the late 90's by adding width in all of the right places and a flatter rocker to make it a more versatile shortboard that could work well in a range of conditions. The fuller outline of the Flyer means that you should order slightly shorter than you would normally when buying a performance shortboard. The width is carried throughout the length of the board for more plaining area resulting in more speed and flow particularly in lesser surf. When looking at the foil of the board, the volume is carried well under the chest for added paddle power through to the tail without feeling too fat thanks to the sensitive rails that allow for ample manoeuvrability.

Bronzer Biscuit 5

The Bonzer Biscuit 5 is basically Channel Island’s popular Biscuit model combined with the Campbell brother’s Bonzer fin set up. The pronounced spiral vee in the back of the board works perfectly with the Bonzer glass on fins, combined with a longboard centre fin box, you can chop and change your centre fin to get a feel that you are happy with. With a wide nose, plenty of volume under the chest and front foot for paddling speed and early wave entry, flat rocker and wide mid-section, this board catches waves with ease and is super stable when up and riding.

Take your good wave game to conditions that are not. The Sampler was developed with Dane Reynolds to be that step-down board you ride a little shorter and wider in smaller or weaker surf while not sacrificing performance. It fits in your quiver between something fishy like a High 5 or Pod Mod and your normal shortboard. Loosely based off the Dumpster Diver, it has a flat, racy entry and centre rocker, with ample curve out the tail for tight transitions and airs.

High 5

The Channel Islands High 5 is a fun and forgiving shortboard that adds a touch of performance to ensure this board is enjoyable for any skill level. The hybrid-fish outline should increase your wave count whilst being faster and livelier than its cousin, the Average Joe. A single concave enters the bottom before running into a double section through the fins and finally leaving the tail in a deep vee. Earning its name from its stock 5 fin boxes, the High 5 allows you to ride this as a quad or thruster. It’s recommended you ride this board 3 to 5 inches shorter than your height. You should have a lot of fun riding this board in a range of different conditions.

From £609.99

Average Joe

The Channel Islands Average Joe Surfboard is probably the most accessible all round 'shortboard' on the market today. Similar in concept to boards like the Lost Bottom Feeder or the JS Pier Pony, the Average Joe takes the concept of super wide high-volume boards back a little further towards typical shortboard performance. The width and thickness means absolutely maximum stability and wave count - perfect as a groveller in the smallest, weakest surf but also for the surfer transitioning from a longer board to a first short board. However, unlike many of its competitors it's rediscovered rocker and a narrower tail. This means it'll be less quirky in better waves and turn off the back foot a lot more like a performance shortboard.

Channel Islands kept seeing custom orders for super- short versions of the ever popular Waterhog. The results were too fun looking to ignore. With a wide nose and generous rocker throughout, the Hoglet is a fun wave-catcher that can turn on a dime. Ride this board any length you want and it will reward you.

From £599.99

Water Hog

A best seller for 10 years, this mini-longboard bridges the gap between the more performance-oriented M-13 hybrid model and our longboard line. Low entry rocker for trimming and enough tail rocker to stay high performance. Bottom goes from flat entry with concave, to vee out the tail. You will not go wanting for wave with this board.
