Like the Proton for Dane, the Rookie is designed around state-of the- art surfing by a powerful surfer and has a full rail with a curvy outline. All three Gudauskas brothers, not small in stature, have found this board suits the varying conditions and waves on the WQS. Over the course of 2010 and 2011 the Rookie has become a common board on the CT tour.
Key note: remember this board hides a lot of volume so order 1/8″ thinner and 1″ possibly shorter.
A great all around shortboard from the flat walls of Bells to the round beach breaks of France.
Intermediate to expert surfers for waist to double over head 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).
