  • Channel Islands M23: Best Hybrid Surfboard Ever?

    by Brian Brown June 17, 2024 1 min read

    Our M23 is the refined version of a design that stems back to favorite hybrid board Al Merrick made for himself years ago—and rode variants of for decades from fun Rincon to maxing Sunset. A true high performance hybrid that caters to the widest possible type and size of surfer—and for the widest range of wave conditions. Not to be confused with the CI Mid, the M23 carries more foam, boasting a fuller rail and sleeker nose outline with more entry rocker. It paddles like a champ while still riding more like a shortboard.

    This edit was made by our board building partners in Bali, Onboard Store and it features head shaper Chris Cutch who grabbed a 6'6 x 20 1/2 x 2 11/16 at 39.2 Ltrs—and instead of a standard trip fin he ran the Twin plus trailer option.
