For that small to medium all-around board in your quiver is the Yadin Nicol-created “Weirdo Ripper.” Development began with Yadin in a CI shaping bay getting weird on Al’s Pod design.
The Weirdo Ripper is a user friendly design, full volume for easy paddling, wide point forward, V bottom, square-winged swallow that works well as a thruster or quad.
Ride the Weirdo 2” to 5” shorter than your height.
Novice to Pro
Ideal Wave Size:
Designed for waist to slightly overhead surf, favors a lined-up wave
Channel Islands has built and installed their own two-tab (FCS compatible) fin box that will come standard in all boards

does this ship for free

Unfortunately, we can't ship CI boards out of the shop. They are generally very expensive to ship and due to the fragile nature of foam cored boards, they generally get damaged. We can only ship out the Lib Tech boards.
