Channel Islands Rocket Wide Surfboard: Introducing the Rocket Wide. The incredibly user-friendly cousin of the Rocket 9. "My brothers and I loved the speed and control we were feeling with the Rocket 9 and we wanted to see how we could apply those same levels of fun and performance to a board for small and gutless waves. The Rocket Wide features a wider tail block to skate across flat sections and a wider nose area to accommodate for better paddle power. It's a shorter, wider skate machine designed to lift the fun factor when the waves are not a their best. So don't let those small days get you down cause the Rocket Wide is ready for blast off!!" Available stock in 3 or 5 fin configurations. Advanced surfers will ride this 2″-4″ shorter than their height. Available in Alternative Technologies
Channel Island Surfboards is proud to announce our collaboration with Shapers Australia to launch SPINE-TEK; a precision engineered stringer spine utilizing a unique composition of fiberglass and resin. SPINE-TEK is based on the principles of elastic energy, to flex under pressure and then return the surfboard back to its natural rocker, providing surfboards with a more lively and responsive feel. Performance through innovation, SPINE-TEK® is a world's first with its unique fiber-based composition, delivers optimal flex based performance through the principles of elastic & kinetic energy. Through this process the surfboard loads up on energy and then releases, generating additional drive, speed, power & flow. Weighing a mere ¼ of a pound and installed in the surfboard deck, SPINE-TEK replaces the traditional heavier timber stringers and is virtually break free. SPINE-TEK is uniquely compatible with both polyurethane/polyester (PU/PE), and expanded polystyrene/epoxy (EPS/Epoxy).
