The Average Joe by Channel Islands fills an interesting hole in what most surf shops stock – a surfboard for average surfers in average waves that wasn’t designed by pro surfers, but entirely by Channel Islands employees looking for a board to surf before and after work.
Because of how wide the Average Joe is it can go up and down in volume by big numbers in only a few inches of length, and that makes sizing one tricky.
If you wanted you could get an Average Joe two inches shorter than your height but if you do that your’e probably looking for something that will catch waves really easily and a Water Hog is probably a better option. If you size one 8 inches below your height you’re probably after a performance groveler short board and there are more interesting surfboard options out there.
But size one 4 to 6 inches below your height as an average surfer and you’ve got an excellent short board that will help you make some jumps in your skill level or make up for the hours you spend behind your desk everyday.

We love South America and everyone there but since customs and imports are tricky in that part of the world it isn’t eligible for this contest.
Thank you Channel Islands for giving me this board for free and thank you Arnette for sponsoring this episode. All opinions are my own.
