Channel Islands Black & White FlexBar

$1,199.00

An all-around, high performance shortboard designed for down the line speed and easy rail-to-rail transitions. The Black & White is based on a favourite hand shape Britt Merrick originally made for Dane Reynolds to surf Santa Barbara area point breaks. Dane related its feel to a good MBM.

The Black & White has a fairly low entry rocker, a staged flattish section between the feet and an accelerated kick out the tail. A single concave runs the length of the board, is deepest near the front fins and shallows into a hint of vee exiting the tail block.

A flat deck design, the Black & White offers improved flex characteristics, a solid under-your-feet feel and full rails. This board should be ridden about your same height to 2″ longer than you are tall. Because of the flat deck, ride the board 1/8” thinner than your normal shortboard to keep the same general volume.

The Black & White is suitable for most surfers in most types of surf where a shortboard is appropriate.

This board features FlexBar technology. The major component of this new innovative core is composite sandwich foam running from the centre to the apex of the rail. This acts as the main base for the FlexBar, allowing the board to flex without losing any strength, as well as lowering the vibration (resonance), which is often identified as a negative in EPS cores.

The result is a smoother feeling ride in all conditions, while retaining the added buoyancy of EPS.

Please note this board does not come with fins.
