This video is about the “Mini” by Channel Islands. Noel Salas reviews the latest small wave board in the CI line up. This is a review about how the contours of the Mini surfboard work and flow together. Come and enjoy the footage of surfing and talking about what makes this small wave so special and unique. Channel Islands Surfboards is pleased to announce a surfboard design collaboration with Kalani Robb and MINI. By incorporating our common passion for performance and having fun we developed a versatile surfboard that performs in a unusually wide range of conditions. The MINI offers a ultra relaxed rocker, wider nose, wider squash tail, thinned rails, and aggressive single to double concave with vee out the tail. Taking a page from Al’s popular Skinny Fish design the MINI incorporates all the speed and wave catching ability of a traditional fish with the performance benefits of a squash tail. Designed to work best in knee to head high surf. This board is best positioned as your go to groveler in your quiver. Ride this board 3″ – 6″ shorter than your height.
The Mini I am riding in the video is 5’3 which is 6″ shorter then I am and the Channel Islands website is very good at helping with this information on all of their models. I suggest having a range on the volume for all the different board types, i.e. small wave boards, normal short board, and your step up. My range at 170 pounds is 26 on my normal short board to 29 on my small wave grovel boards. I hope this helps and I hope you enjoyed the surfboard review. Cheers!!!
