The Even Keel by Joe Curren
Our new traditional fish design developed exclusively with Joe Curren. The Even Keel comes standard with double foil wood keel fins and 6+6/4 layups that achieve ideal swing weight and momentum through turns. Joe’s board of choice over 50% of the time at home or on the road.
“With The Even Keel my goal is to make a board that is both progressive and traditional by taking my favorite elements from the original fish-speed, drive, trim and glide-and adding design elements that improve rail-to-rail transitions and increases maneuverability. A person is said to be “on an even keel’ when steady and well-balanced in life as a well-trimmed ship is in the water. This board is my Even Keel” - Joe Curren
This board is incredibly fast and finds hidden pockets of speed on waves that elude your short board.
Ideal Wave Size
Novice to expert surfers in knee high to 2 feet 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.
