Channel Islands OG Flyer Surfboard

A re-release of Channel Islands most popular ever design. The Original Flyer of the late 90's was the main influence on shortboard design of today, being the first to make the departure from long and narrow boards with lots of rocker. This fuller outline is all about speed and flow in less than perfect waves.

Best described as an everyday board for everyday conditions, the OG Flyer was borne in the late 90's by Al Merrick as a solution to his team rider's dilemma of needing more speed in smaller, less powerful waves. He chopped length, added width and decreased rocker from the then-standard overly narrow surfboards, to make the Flyer. The Flyer is without a doubt the most ridden and enjoyed surfboard in all of Channel Islands surfboard history.

The Flyer has a deep single concave running through the middle of the board, which goes into a double concave inside the single between the fins, which then goes into a vee through the tail block. This channels water underneath the board for speed, while the vee directs the water when turning to offer super quick rail to rail transition.
