Channel Islands Cheese Stick Surfboard Model Description: The Cheese Stick Surfboard from Channel Islands was designed with Yadin Nicol to to excel in the average conditions on the WQS Tour. Top-level surfers are trending toward shorter boards with a wider nose and tail. This allows the Cheese Stick to be ridden shorter but keep paddling volume. The Cheese Stick also has more flip in the nose and tail than its now distant cousin. Yadin says the tail flip gets him one more maneuver per wave and makes it easier to land reverse.Experience: Intermediate to expert. Ride this board about 1 inch longer than you are tall.Ideal Wave Size: Knee-high to slightly overhead.
