The Channel Islands Average Joe surfboard knows surfers sometimes want something simple, fun, and easy to ride. A light single concave for the first 1/3 of the board with a deepening concave throughout makes for more control and comfort. The Joe can be surfed off the rail or tail and has Al’s signature hip tail template to keep drive. Full rails keep high volume in a short outline.
Increase wave count, make more sections. This board is geared towards the things that make surfing fun.
Channel Islands first and foremost is performance based and athlete driven, but not everyone’s next paycheck hinges on how critical their equipment works.
