Channel Islands Pro Store Opening Night

The finishing touches have all been put in place and the Channel Islands Pro Store is ready for it’s opening night this Friday 1st May from 6:30pm, at Market Square Arcade, Hayle, Cornwall.

Everyone’s welcome to come down, have a beer, some nibbles and have a gander at the spanking new boards we have in stock! Beer! Did I say beer? That’s right, there will be beers aplenty from St. Ives Brewery and Black Rock Brewing to tickle your tastebuds as you check out the latest models… the likes of the Pod Mod for example.

So, come on down to this informal night, have a chat and a laugh.. It’ll be great to see you all. Also, if you have any board related questions, the head honchos from Olatu are coming over from the Basque country, and they love nothing more than to talk surfboards over a pint or 8.

Pod Mod Surfboard

Thought I’d let you good people know that the Channel Islands Pod Mod surfboard is coming to our Channel Islands Pro Store in Cornwall in the next couple of weeks. It’s a big modification of the ever popular Pod model from back in 2000, making it wider than previous, and with the single to double concave removed and replaced with a flat entry to concave vee…. aiding nippier rail to rail transitions.

Enough chat for the minute, let’s have a look at it:-

As I said, the Pod Mod will be here in the next 2 weeks, so just in time for you to make the most of the summer swells… Did I tell you this year is going to be the best summer ever for surf in Cornwall 😉 Aah, if only I could guarantee that, but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of wishful thinking!

We will be getting a good size break of the Pod Mod, and here’s the stock dimensions:-


 Stock Length  Width  Thickness  Volume (Ltrs)
 5’2″  19 7’8″  2 5/16″  26.6

Just a little heads up that there’ll be a Channel Islands Pro Store opening at Down the Line Surf Co in May. The store will have a ridiculously large selection of Channel Islands surfboards, featuring full size breaks of the latest models as they are released.

There will also be a tasty range of boardbags, leashes and tail pads, amongst a few other exclusives which I can’t really talk about yet 😉
As always, custom orders are available, with priority given to us over any shop in Europe, meaning you get your custom board that little bit quicker.

That’s about it for the minute, but there will be details of the launch party coming out pretty soon. Contact us for more info… and while you’re here, why don’t you check out the latest Channel Island boards in stock right now.
