Channel Islands Dumpster Diver EPS Epoxy Surfboard 5ft 10 FCS - White
EPS surfboards use a different kind of foam (EPS) and epoxy glassing to standard boards. EPS foam is Expanded Polystyrene, non EPS surfboards use PU (polyurethane) foam blanks and standard glassing. The reason that we choose to run some boards in this construction is that EPS boards are 30% more durable than standard PU surfboards and approximately 20% lighter. This means they are more resistant to impact damage which makes them a great travel board where often getting a board repaired is difficult.
Channel Islands board designs are direct results of team feedback, so when Dane showed up at the factory requesting a short wide epoxy with single concave and a huge square tail to make the summer bearable, the Dumpster Diver was born. When he came back a week later and wanted one with a narrower nose and a Rookie tail template for the Trestles contest in 3 days, the 2nd Generation Dumpster Diver was created.
Using the front half of the Sashimi model, and the template for the back half of the Rookie short board, this second version remained under Dane's feet all the way through to his first final at the WCT Trestles 2009.
Though still a work in progress the Dumpster Diver flies and still has enough kick in the tail to carve in the pocket. If you want to try the board as it was in the Trestles contest, then get one quick, as you never know where he will take the design next.
Short, wide and ugly, but fun and fast, small to med surf, launching. Intermediate to expert.
"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
