From 2004 to 2007 the M4 was a favorite with surfers on tour for riding small to medium waves: Flat entry rocker, increased tail kick, full rail, and single concave. The M-4 has a wider nose and tail, so ride this one an inch shorter and a hair wider if you surf mostly in small waves. The M-4 is considered one of the more forgiving boards in the CI line. The M4 is still a popular board for custom orders.
You surf with a balance of power and precision and in a wide variety of wave conditions. Works with either front footed or back footed surfers.
Knee-high to Head and a half
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.
We will custom build with Fusion or X2 upon request (upcharges apply Jan 1 2014).
