Product Details

Channel Islands 'Twin' Spine-Tek Surfboard


The Twin Fin has a retro 70’s feel, with updated performance qualities.

It was originally designed and hand shaped by Britt Merrick when asked to compete in a surf contest where shapers ride retro boards they have created themselves. Inspired by a twin fin that his father Al had shaped for himself in the late 70’s, and that a friend had recently found at a garage sale, Britt took a template off it, drew it on a blank and updated the rocker to have a more modern feel with added positive drive and carving ability. Thus, the new CI Twin Fin was born. The Twin Fin has been tested by Britt, Dane and CI Factory pilots in everything from weak beach breaks to good Rincon and has proved to be a fast and fun wave catching machine.  To offset negative characteristics of a usual high-volume retro design, the Twin Fin’s rails are tapered and relatively thin feeling for added sensitivity and responsiveness. 



About this board:


Construction: Epoxy (Spine-Tek)
Glassing: Standard (4+4 deck, 4 bottom)
Fin Boxes: FCS2/Futures x 3 (Choose option above - Fins not included)
Tail shape: Rounded Square
Dimensions/Litres: See size graph above



About SPINE-TEK Technology:


Engineered by the crew at Shapers Australia, our exclusive SPINE-TEK partnership allows Channel Islands to build boards that are livelier and more responsive. Like a spring, they load up on energy, provide pop, accelerate out of turns whilst holding speed down the line, and the “spine” keeps its flex pattern unlike timber which looses it over time.


About Channel Islands (Al Merrick):


Since 1969, Channel Islands Surfboards has been dedicated to performance and quality through hard work, innovation, and originality. Over the last 43 years, Channel Islands has grown from a local grass-roots operation to a cutting edge organization, catering to the best surfers in the world.
