Channel Island Twin Spine-Tek

 





Channel Islands introduces SPINE-TEK 

We are proud to announce our collaboration with Shapers Australia to launch SPINE-TEK; a precision engineered stringer spine utilizing a unique composition of fiberglass and resin. SPINE-TEK is based on the principles of elastic energy, to flex under pressure and then return the surfboard back to its natural rocker, providing surfboards with a more lively and responsive feel.

Performance through innovation, SPINE-TEK® is a world’s first with its unique fiber-based composition, delivers optimal flex based performance through the principles of elastic & kinetic energy. Through this process the surfboard loads up on energy and then releases, generating additional drive, speed, power & flow.

Weighing a mere ¼ of a pound and installed in the surfboard deck, SPINE-TEK replaces the traditional heavier timber stringers and is virtually break free.


More detail 

The SPINE-TEK concept focuses the importance of flex to provide increased efficiency to turn (the ability to redirect body mass faster and at more acute angles).

The result is increased efficiency (the way the board moves through water), the Spine helps a surfer achieve greater output from less input; a lighter amount of force required through the bottom turn to create more acceleration for the top turn.

Some surfers will simply push/try harder (use more force) to achieve a more powerful response (bigger turns, more pop for punts etc). Maximizing this efficiency is also a way minimize surfer fatigue and maintain energy.

A critical component is the ability of a product to be able to change shape (distort) and then return back to its optimal form (shape) with force. The SPINE flexing is loading up on energy (this load process is ‘storing energy’ =  Elastic Potential Energy). When the board responds back to its natural shape (the boards rocker curve), this stored energy is converted to Kinetic Energy (the energy of motion). In simple terms, the surfboard loads up on energy (potential) and then the boards springs back with energy (kinetic). In surfing terms.. Speed, Power, Drive, Flow.

Best 40lt travel pack ever

Very comfortable with great support.
Wet area perfect for boardshorts or springsuit plus extra clothing space for a large compression cube full of clothes.
So many handy pockets with zips.
Rear steath pocket is perfect.
Maybe a cover to hide the straps but if you cant afford $15 for a cover you shouldnt be going anywhwere.
This pack plus a double boardbag was all i needed for 8 weeks in bali.

Lovely sturdy umbrella, gives very good shade on a very hot day. Not too heavy to carry, would definitely recommend this beach umbrella 😎

Happy with Product

I like the colour and design

So easy to put up, even with two kids running round your ankles! This beautiful umbrella is an absolute joy and super lightweight so an easy juggle with the rest of the beach gear when you're going solo. Having shade at the beach has made our summer. Also love the delicate flannel flower print and wooden handle, the quality and craftsmanship is superb. On a seperate note, I had a minor issue and both Alex (of Salty Shadows) and the Sanbah staff responded quickly and efficiently to remedy. Couldn't recommend this product and the customer service highly enough!

Suits boards with medium to high tail rocker

Top set for dhd 3dx and 3dv. I am a bigger guy - 95kg. This set works well for me in most conditions. Provides strong drive and enough pivot for the bigger guy. Highly recommended. Yew.
