Channel Islands Rocket 9 Surfboard

The Rocket 9 is a step down board for easy speed generation when the waves are less than perfect. A forward wide point, plenty of volume up front combined with a pulled in tail means this board paddles well, is super snappy and really maneuverable.

The latest board from Channel Islands, developed with help from the Gudauskas brothers, the Rocket 9 will allow you to really put your foot down and grab tonnes of speed, then step back and really gouge your turns tight in the pocket. Here's what Dane says about it:-

"The Rocket 9 is suited to your average waves like we find around California. It works great in beach breaks because it can be skatey when you want to generate that speed, but then you step back on that tail and you can absolutely hammer some vert wall. I also think that with the shorter nature of it, it fits really well in the tighter transitions of beach breaks. I have ridden it on big open walls of some point breaks in Morocco and it went well too.

One of the major desires for this board was I wanted was to go fast and then turn hard when I wanted in waves ranging from super average California beach breaks all the way to grinding little tubes. It’s one of the most versatile boards I have ever ridden.

With the wider outline up front its able to hide a bit of volume under the chest to make the paddling still super easy even though you are on a shorter board."
