It started with hard-core surfing and quality in mind and these guidelines have brought us through four decades of constant change in the surf industry. Channel Islands will shape the new millennium with innovative design and quality as our main focus.

“The driving force behind Channel Islands Surfboards is the demand on design created by the world’s greatest surfers, allowing for the highest performance surfing possible. To provide the most dedicated surfers with the most advanced, performance designs is my passion” – Al Merrick, Designer/Shaper

 

  • In 2000 the original Pod rapidly became a global favorite, allowing surfers to drop six inches off their shortboards and revolutionize punting.

    The Torq Pod Mod design is a heavily modified Pod, designed to be ridden even shorter and wider than the original, catering to the surfer that wants a little more volume forward to catch waves but doesn’t want to sacrifice performance. The tail has been widened for small wave glide, and the original single to double concave has been replaced with a flat entry to concave vee for quick rail to rail transitions.

    Experienced surfers ride this board 3”- 6” shorter than you are tall.

    TORQ X-LITE TECHNOLOGY

    X-Lite is a torq Epoxy technology developed specifically for performance boards. This is lighter, stronger and more Eco than a traditional PU/Polyester board, now with a 50% thinner Shield Skin for weight reduction. This innovative technology is used exclusively on the X-Lite Channel Islands models; the best selling Pod Mod and all new Chancho.

    The Pod Mod features an Impact Mesh layer on the deck for strength and ding resistance, the Chancho features a Carbon Strip on the deck for longitudinal strength and responsiveness.

  • Channel Islands has modernized the Flyer into a shorter wider package. This new-plan shape allows for the same volume in a shorter rail line. It keeps the forgiving 2-stage rocker and adds a spiral "V" starting in front of the fins to allow for rail-to-rail quickness.

    The 05 Channel Islands New Flyer, designed by Al Merrick in 1999, revolutionized high performance surfing in small waves.

    The New Flyer was named “SURFBOARD OF THE YEAR” by the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association!

    Devel­oped as an extremely strong, lighter weight board with a medium flex, the Tuflite com­pos­ites are exact repli­cas of orig­i­nal hand shapes and are the most durable board in the water with very lit­tle deck dent­ing or pres­sure dings. Using only the high­est qual­ity EPS foam, Epoxy and fiber­glass mate­ri­als, Tuflite surf­boards are com­pos­ite sand­wich boards that boast the ulti­mate com­bi­na­tion of per­for­mance, light­weight and dura­bil­ity. Built from our part­ner shapers’ most renowned designs, each Tuflite rep­re­sents the high­est qual­ity surf­board in its respec­tive range. Work­ing with nearly every major shaper in the world insures that we offer the most exten­sive range of choices for every surfer in the water today!

  • “The Rocket 9 is suited to your average waves like we find around California. It works great in beach breaks because it can be skatey when you want to generate that speed, but then you step back on that tail and you can absolutely hammer some vert wall. I also think that with the shorter nature of it, it fits really well in the tighter transitions of beach breaks. I have ridden it on big open walls of some point breaks in Morocco and it went well too, kind of like a little scalpel or snowboard, but I think the optimal range for this board would be 2 to 6 foot beach breaks.

    The Rocket 9 outline has the wide point forward a bit and the tail is pulled in making it super snappy and maneuverable. The swallow gives a great fast release as well. One of the major desires for this board was I wanted was to go fast and then turn hard when I wanted in waves ranging from super average California beach breaks all the way to grinding little tubes. It’s one of the most versatile boards I have ever ridden.

    I like to ride my Rocket 9 two inches shorter than my normal shortboard length. With the wider outline up front its able to hide a bit of volume under the chest to make the paddling still super easy even though you are on a shorter board. “ – Dane Gudauskas
