Channel Islands Surfboards
Channel Islands Surfboards is the largest surfboard brand in the world and equips (arguably) the best surfers on the planet.
Channel Islands Surfboards and designer/shaper Al Merrick have forged a reputation for a dedication to performance and quality through innovation and creativity in their surfboard designs. Since 1969, Channel Islands has grown from a local, grassroots business based in Santa Barbara to a bleeding edge global manufacturing operation, which is still based in Southern California, a short stroll from the famous point break, Rincon Del Mar.
Purchased by Burton Snowboards in 2006, Channel Islands Surfboards continues to put surfboards under the feet of some of the best surfers on the planet, including Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, Lakey Peterson, Jordy Smith, Alana Blanchard and many more. Maintaining relevance to a global surfing audience through more than four decades of constant change in the surfing industry has been a hallmark of Channel Islands Surfboards success.
To this day, Channel Islands Surfboards and designer/shaper Al Merrick continue to be driven by the desire to create products at the cutting edge of performance in surfboard design for hardcore, advanced surfers while still catering the the average, everyday surfers with more user friendly designs geared for fun.
With roots in Al Merrick’s trusted and proven high-performance shortboard designs, the Channel Islands Fever surfboard can still handle more average conditions. - - Looking for Channel Islands Surfboards in Australia? Talk to the good … [Read more...]
