Channel Islands Rocket Wide Surfboard Review by: Noel Salas
In this episode of Surf 'n Show Noel Salas reviews the Rocket Wide which is the latest edition of small wave Grovelers in the Channel Islands line up of surfboards. He ordered two stock 5’5” x 18 ¾ x 2 5/16 Liters 25.8 in the new CI Spine-Tek construction… one board with Futures Fin boxes and the other has FCSII. In this video Noel tests both of these boards in perfect 1-2’ and 3-4’ surf to find the range that best suits this model.
"I found the Rocket Wide to be very fast, responsive, and most of all it has good flow in transition from turn to turn. I can honestly say that this board suits my style of surfing best in 1-3’ surf. I highly recommend this board for small waves I think it suits all level of surfers. The Rocket Wide is not only a favorite of Surf n’ Shows for 2018… it’s also my top pick for best Groveler for 2018 in 1-3’ surf."
