Channel Islands Warp Surfboard Model Description: The Warp Surfboard was designed by Channel Islands team rider and 1978 World Champ Shaun Tomson. Shaun wanted to design a board more for the middle-age guy who still wants a performance board but wants to get the most out of the average waves they find themselves riding. The result was the Warp. This board features more volume, allowing for easy paddling and wave-catching. Single concave under the front foot allows for punchy drive on takeoffs and double concave to vee provide lift and easy rail-to-rail transitions. The Warp comes standard as a swallow tail. Ride the Warp about the same length as your Flyer. Experience: Intermediate. Ideal Wave Size: Knee-high to overhead.
