Some highlights of Hawaii that Ryan put to a soundtrack that hopefully gets you pumped up to surf ! Hawaii is one of our favorite places in the world, so we decided make this to enjoy during these times of quarantine. Please, dream of the aloha state with us from a distance in “Hawaii Highs”

The CI Mid is Channel Islands Surfboards new midlength design built through the collaborative rider input and direction of Devon Howard (@devon_howard). This video footage was captured early last summer (’19) during two consecutive days of riding the No. 5 prototype we had shaped him along the way to making what is now: the CI Mid.
Parker Coffin is always working on new designs. This year he was the genesis for a new twin-keel fin model the Fish Beard, which will be available in January, 2020. He’s also working on some high performance shortboards customized by CI Shaper Mike Walter.
Watch Yadin Nicol schralping on his new twin-keel fin, high-performance fish-tailed board we call the FishBeard. At 5’9 and 175lbs Yadin rides a 5’6 x 19 x 2 5/16, 26L. See what’s in stock or build a custom that’s uniquely yours.
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.
The Channel Islands Fever Surfboard is the result of Pat’s effort became “Fever Voyage,” his new short film that pays homage to all the hands that touch his boards before they get under feet. Pat appreciates that surfboards are unique when it comes to making sports equipment.
