The Warpby Shaun Tomson
Channel Islands team rider and 1977 World Champ Shaun Tomson came to us wanting to design a board for the young at heart guy who wants a performance board but still wants to get the most out of the average waves they often find themselves riding. He also wanted a board that would get into waves quickly with immediate get up and go acceleration. The result was the Warp. This board features more volume, allowing for easy paddling and wave-catching. A single concave under the front foot allows for punchy drive on takeoffs and the double concave blending to a vee provide lift and easy rail-to-rail transitions. The Warp comes standard as a swallow tail. Ride the Warp about 1 to 2 inches longer than your height. or the same length as your Flyer.
Knee-high to 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.
We will custom build with Fusion or X2 upon request (upcharges apply Jan 1 2014).
