A sleeker, more performance-ready design than the CI Fish, the FishBeard is pure business in the front and all party in the back. Get forward on this user-friendly board and drive from the center and you’ll have all the speed and flow you always desired.

The Channel Islands Mid Surfboard is a modern classic design resulting from a fun collaboration with Devon Howard. Inspired by the clean, longer-railed lines drawn on traditional eggs and single-fins, the Mid fuses that vibe with the crispness, sensitivity and freedom made possible by modern features synonymous with Merrick design principles.
