Channel Islands High 5 Surfboard Review by Noel Salas:
This video is about Channel Islands "High 5" Surfboard Review Ep. 2. Surfboard information and demonstration on how the High 5 surfboard by Channel Islands worked in small waves by Noel Salas . This video also talks about the surfboard and the construction of the surfboard. The High 5 was cooked up by CI staff to be fun and forgiving but with performance sprinkled in. Designed to be a quicker and nimbler offspring of the Average Joe, the High 5 will pad your wave count and still allow for rail work and section making. The bottom is single concave entry to deep double through the fins and terminating with deep concave vee out the tail. Comes stock with 5 fin boxes and can be ridden as a quad or thruster. You can ride the High 5 however you want, but CI staff generally ride it about 3” to 5” shorter than our height.
This small wave board is one of the fastest I have ever ridden. In my opinion this is the best Summer board for 2015 so far, but stay tuned as I will be doing a review on the new Pod Mod by Channel Islands next.
