Channel Islands Black and White Surfboard 5ft 11 Futures - White
Introducing the latest thoroughbred from the Channel Islands surfboards stable. The Black and White is a surfboard for a decent surfer in good quality waves from chest high to well overhead.
The Black and White is loosely based on a favourite hand-shaped board that Britt Merrick made Dane Reynolds for point breaks and nice wally waves in and around the Santa Barbara area. The overall shape and set-up is designed to deliver down-the-line speed along with rapid rail to rail surfing and the ability to excel in and around the pocket. Dane likened the feel to the legendary M-BM that was shaped for Bobby Martinez back in 2004; a board that proved very popular for good surfers in quality waves for the next 5 years.
Getting down to the nitty-gritty; the Black & White has a fairly shallow entry rocker, a pretty flat section between the feet, with an emphasised kick out the tail to keep it loose in the pocket. A single concave runs from nose to tail blending into a slight V out through the tail block which gives the B&W it's down-the line speed.
Full rails and a flat deck design, offers improved flex characteristics, along with a nice 'planted' feel under the feet.
Although not set-in-stone, CI suggest riding the Black & White the same as your height, or up to 2" longer depending on your own personnel requirements. Britt also says that you can ride the board 1/8 or 0.125 thinner than your regular shortboard because the flatter deck conceals a little extra foam.
If you're looking for a go-to shortboard for good days at your home break, or a travel board for good quality surf in places like Morocco or indo the Black & White ticks all the boxes.
Don’t forget, if the stock dims don't work for you, you can order a customised version selecting your exact dims, fin set up and fin system, check out our customizer service at Boardshop right now. All you need to do is punch in the details and pay a £100 deposit with the balance due when we ship your board roughly 6-8 weeks later.
As a premier Channel Islands stockist, we pride ourselves on giving what we think is good solid advice without any of the over-eager sales driven BS often encountered by our customers elsewhere.
We're happy to consider taking your old or unwanted board as a trade in against a surfboard, so If you have any questions about this we'd be delighted to answer them and advise on any potential board choices or enquiries you might have, just drop us an email to email@example.com or call us on 0044 (0) 1243 674250
