The Cheese Stick by Yadin Nicol
We worked with Yadin Nicol to completely redesign his quiver to excel in the average conditions on the WQS Tour and created the Cheese Stick. Top-level surfers are trending toward shorter boards with a wider nose and tail. This allows the Cheese Stick to be ridden shorter but keep paddling volume. The Cheese Stick also has more flip in the nose and tail than its now distant cousin. Yadin says the tail flip gets him one more maneuver per wave and makes it easier to land reverse.
Ride this board about 1 inch longer than you are tall.
Ideal Wave Size
Knee-high to slightly overhead.

For best results ride this board with the Merrick template—look for the hexagons.
NOTICE as of 9/1/2013 Channel Islands is building and installing our own two-tab (FCS compatible) fin box that will come standard in all boards.
