Surfboard Review: Channel Islands New Flyer Surfboard
May 01, 20151 min read
In 1999, Al Merrick designed the Flyer, revolutionizing high performance surfing in small waves. For 2013 Channel Islands has modernized the Flyer into a shorter and wider package. This new plan-shape allows for the same volume in a shorter rail line. We kept the forgiving 2-stage rocker and added spiral vee starting in front of the fins to allow for rail-to-rail quickness. The signature Merrick hip provides a pivot point for tight arcs. Ride The New Flyer (NF) 2″-4″ shorter than your height. Designed for knee waist to head high and excels in tight or tricky conditions. Experience: Advanced to expert surfers. Ideal Wave Size Punchy waist high to well overhead surf. Watch a board review on the Channel Islands New Flyer Surfboard below with our surfboard specialist.
