Channel Islands Sampler surfboard FlexBar 5ft 10 - FCS II - White
CI and Barron Flex have created a unique construction which harnesses the energy from longitudinal and torsional flex and targets the return to the back foot over the fins for increased "return" boosting the surfer through turns and manoeuvres. The clever utilization of differing foam densities and fibre glass throughout the surfboard gives the rider real usable feedback and energizes your surfing. All regular PU surfboards eventually loose their "pop" and that new zingy feeling but FlexBar surfboards will maintain this feeing throughout their lifespan. Another key constituent of FlexBar tech is the composite sandwich foam running from the middle of the board out to the rails. This performs as a solid base for the FlexBar allowing the board to flex, maintain its strength and also reduce the vibration or chatter sometimes associated with EPS cores.
Channel Islands surfboards are so confident in the FlexBar construction that they're offering a 1 year warranty against breakage, so if you snap or crease your FlexBar surfboard they'll replace it!
The Sampler can trace its lineage back to the Dumpster Diver, and has the same shallow entry rocker, and ample curve out the tail, this means you've got a board that you can actually turn, sit in the pocket and enjoy. The generous single concave runs the whole length of the board, with a slight double within the single between the fins. There's a little vee to provide kick off the tail. The full outline in the front half of the board, with an exaggerated and slightly forward of normal Merrick hip, and a wide old-school squash tail gives the surface area to cruise over mushy sections whilst maintaining speed.
The Sampler is a great board for the average shortboarder who regularly surfs in below par conditions. The Sampler occupies the slot in your quiver between your groveller and your performance shortboard and for many it'll be their go-to shortboard for anything the groveller cant cope with.
