Opening the door of possibilities, the Channel Islands Tech 1 Fins allow you to draw bold new lines you have yet to explore. Allowing for ultimate control, CI fins offer a predictable and consistent feel underfoot while fulfilling the high demand for the drive and release needed in professional level surfing. Al Merrick has refined his designs to meet the needs of surfers today but has remained true to the original layout he developed in the 80's. The Tech 1 fins offer a wide base, long rake and his signature smaller center fin that frees up the tail for a more rippable approach. Using proven templates, modern technology and Channel Islands quality, the Tech 1 Fin series has the performance you want and all the versatility you need to do big things in the water.
