CLASS OF 2018



As the CI team began materializing and preparing for the 2018 WSL campaign, certain phrases kept popping up at the factory like “happy,” “positive vibes,” “team smiley” “have fun”
Looking at our class of 2018, the reason is obvious.The focus and feedback from these athletes is central to CI’s ability build the finest surfcraft possible.

The passion, drive, and determination of this group is unquestionable, and the way they do it with a love of surfing and zest for life gets us stoked!

We couldn’t be more proud to have this crew of humble and happy surfers having fun on tour and competing on our equipment. LETS GO 2018!!
