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.
The Happy is a new performance shortboard model built to give surfers the freedom to easily go wherever their mind takes them. Low entry rocker and strategically placed forward volume allow the board to paddle well, get up to speed quickly, and perform extremely well in the tube.
Carbon composite construction combined with our Fused-Cell EPS core, TL Pro Carbon (TLPC) utilize a proprietary stringer system that is custom built to each individual board. Strategically positioned carbon reinforcement laminated over a layer of high-density foam strengthens the board while creating the lively flex pattern that can only be found in our TLPC technology
Another major component of Flexbar technology is composite sandwich foam running from center to the apex of the rail. This acts as the main base for the Flexbar and allows the board to flex without losing any of the board's overall longitude and torsional strength.
A few years back, we built the Average Joe to be a fun, simple, easy-to-ride board and it became one of our top sellers. For 2019, after rounds of customer feedback and team testing, we’ve created a souped-up, sleeker version…the Ultra Joe.
