Product Details

The Channel Islands Rocket 9 surfboard, a new and hard to ignore shred-stick with a few tricks up it's sleeve.

Channel Islands team rider and all-round charger Dane Gudauskas wanted a fast and hard turning shortboard that would excel in average Californian conditions and fit into the tighter transitions and barrels of beach breaks.

With the wide point a little in front of centre the Rocket 9 hides some extra foam up front making it a breeze to paddle and catch waves early. Low front entry rocker along with V into concave and then a double concave out through the tail. The tail has been significantly pulled in and has a nice little swallow so when you really stomp on that back foot the Rocket 9 goes vert with the best and snaps as fast as anything out there.

Whilst its ideal hunting grounds would be two to six foot beach breaks, Dane has put the Rocket 9 through its paces on some big walling point breaks in Morocco where it seemed to relish the challenge.

Dane's younger brother Tanner has been ripping on the Rocket 9 with a set of the Merrick twin fin + trailer fin sets, this is the first board from the house of Merrick that benefits from one of these setups. I guess when the waves are better you would go with a standard thruster set and whack in the twin + trailer when you wanted to rip some smaller conditions.

Don't forget you can also order a customised version of this board choosing your exact dims and fin system, check out our customizer service at Boardshop right now. All you need to do is pump in the details and pay a £100 deposit with the balance due when we ship your board, average build time is 6-8 weeks (longer for eps etc).

Solid all rounder
Pretty decent all rounder, sized right you'll have plenty of paddling power. I had my doubts about the tail design being pulled in a bit and a medium tail rocker but it works well and doesn't seem to hang or lose speed in lesser surf. I find the board works well enough as a thruster using FCS2 Performers but I haven't had a chance to really push the top end yet. The front and is nicely rockered and the nose width just right. It feels like a nice board under the arm. First CI I've bought in years anf happy with the purchase.
