Originating as a board for navigating long barrels in Mexico, the Taco Grinder is a direct result of the Channel Islands team demanding shortboard performance in waves that require a semi-gun or step-up. With a single concave throughout, full rails and plenty of tail-kick, the Channel Islands Taco Grinder is a good paddler that still goes vertical. In short, a versatile high performance step-up designed for advanced surfers who want to take their performance to the next level in serious waves. Ride the Taco Grinder the same width and thickness as your all-around performance board, but 2” to 6” longer, depending on wave size.
