Channel Islands Average Joe Surfboard 5ft 3 FCS - White
The Channel Islands Average Joe surfboard by Al Merrick has been developed to make surfing even more fun! The Average Joe is for surfer's of all abilities, its designed to increase your wave count and with it's forgiving template generally make your session more fun. The idea is that any surfer can by a surfboard from the Channel Island range from the seasoned pro to an Average Joe! Most people are familiar with the Biscuit (one of the best boards ever created in our opinion!) the Average Joe is an extension of this board. Its packed with volume through the middle of the board to make paddling and wave catching a breeze, has enough volume in the nose to make your take off simple and just the right amount of tail lift to mean you can still push it through turns. This board works as a first time shortboard for someone coming off a mini mal or fat shortboard, or as an addition to the quiver of the surfer lacking that small wave weapon. You're not going to get this baby vertical on every wave but you will be guaranteed fun! It is recommended to ride this board 2-8" shorter than your height. We're offering the AJ in FCS or Futures in almost all sizes, plus custom orders are always available just drop us a line for details.
"The driving force behind Channel Islands Surfboards is the demand on design created by the world's greatest surfers, allowing for the highest performance surfing possible. To provide the most dedicated surfers with the most advanced, performance designs is my passion" - Al Merrick, Designer/Shaper

I ordered a board I didn’t get on with but boardshop were more than happy to exchange (no quibble)for an average joe which I have to say is amazing.
5 star board
5 star service
Would recommend to anyone
Great product, does exactly what it's meant to. Fantastic addition to the quiver.On a separate note boardshop did a great job every step of the purchasing process. Cracking informational videos on the board helping with sizing (v.important for this board), brilliant delivery. Not only quick to get you in the water asap but also packaged like a Russian doll so it arrived pristine
Absolutely does what is says on the tin... Average Joe, i.e. for the surfer who doesn't get in the water as often as liked and wants to be able to enjoy it when he does. I bought this board for surfing in Biarritz France during the summer, which means it needs to be able to perform in 1 ft mush to nice lined up 5-6 ft sets. On top you have to compete with super groms shredding and long boarders who can catch anything plus dodge the 100 tourists who are always in the way. Perfect board for the Job. I am riding a 5'5" 33lt (I am 180cm 73kg) and this is plenty of board, don't get scared in to going to big as it will just skim across the top of the water. BOARDSHOP - service was exceptional, ordered Friday and it was at my door Tuesday. Thx
First of all, thanks for the great service and big help from Ian!5 ft 9 Average Joe arrived very quick and in mint condition with a nice leash and footpad!It took me quite a while until i could try it out. But finally i could make it to Portugal for a few days and it was top! I was a little afraid comming down from a 6ft 9 funboard but it was not a problem at all even though i would still consider myself as a beginner. The surf wasnÂ´t big the whole week but catching small waves was not an issue at all. Also duckdiving is not big deal as it was with the other board :) I am really looking forward to france in a few weeks to test it for a longer time!Thanks again to Ian and Boardshop for hooking me up with that great board!
