Hybrid – Soft Top/Hard Bottom
The Channel Islands X INT Shaper’s Series surfboards represent the latest evolution in hybrid soft board design and construction. We began with a complete rethinking of the fabrication of these boards, from the blank up. The core is 100% recyclable, American-made Marko foam; specifically designed for optimum strength and performance in a soft board application. We opted for sustainable bamboo stringers for their favorable strength to weight characteristics, allowing for a solid board feel on a soft deck. The epoxy resin used on the board bottom is formulated for maximum strength, responsiveness, and durability. While the board outlines and rockers are precision-cut on CNC machines, the rail foil and final concave are hand-shaped on each and every board. By combining proven Channel Islands designs and unparalleled INT soft board construction technology, these boards will redefine what a soft board is and what they can do. Available now with orange or white deck, starting at $519.
