Shortboards

What the Pros ride. Small, high-performance boards. Typically low volume, lots of rocker, super maneuverable. Usually requires good waves.


Channel Islands 4


Dena gives Board Riders Review her take on the new Channel Islands Utility "4" surfboard. I think she likes it! Yet another board influenced by Dane Reynolds that mere mortals can ride.

Lost F-1 Stub


The Mayhem Lost F-1 Stub is an all around competition short board. During 2009 the F1 became a board of choice for any team riders, The New F-1 Stub has a bit more volume making it easier to catch sub-par surf and still deliver high performance surfing.

Channel Islands: The New Flyer


In 1999, Al Merrick designed the Flyer, revolutionizing high performance surfing in small waves. For 2013 Channel Islands has modernized the Flyer into a shorter and wider package. This new plan-shape allows for the same volume in a shorter rail line. We kept the forgiving 2-stage rocker and added spiral vee starting in front of the fins to allow for rail-to-rail quickness. The signature Merrick hip provides a pivot point for tight arcs.
