Proton – “Voted 2009 SIMA Board of the year”
Voted the 2009 board of the year by SIMA, The Proton is a result of Dane’s design work in late 2007. Still Dane’s go-to board in good pockety surf, the Proton is the choice for advanced surfers everywhere.
Original and truly unique from any other board in our line, this board has continuous rocker throughout. The bottom consists of a deep single concave, and full rails. Dane normally rides a 2 3/8″ and orders his Protons at 2 1/4″, so order yours a 1/8″ thinner.
“I like the responsive, quick feeling I get out of the Proton, and I am excited to have this board as my model.” - Dane Reynolds
Ideal Wave Size
Advanced to expert surfers in punchy waist high to well overhead surf. Can also be custom ordered as a Proton Step for bigger surf.
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).
