Channel Islands 5’4 Rocket 9
Channel Islands Rocket 9 Dual-Core
5’4 x 18.8 x 2.2 = 23.4 Ltr
Channel Islands Rocket 9 is suited to your average waves that you’ll find all around Australia. It’s great in beach breaks because it can be skatey when you want to generate that speed. Dual Core construction makes this an exceptional performing shape:
Traditional poly boards absorb vibrations a bit better than EPS. They also allow you to dig the rail deeper to have more hold in turns. An EPS board offers a bit more float thanks to its less dense foam. So you get the additional float, more paddle power, meaning an increased wave count and more speed generation on the wave.
Channel Islands Rocket 9 outline has the wide point forward a bit and the tail is pulled in making it super snappy and manoeuvrable. The swallow gives a great fast release as well.
One of the major things you notice about this board is that it wants to go fast and will turn hard when you initiate, and its best ridden in waves ranging from super average “California-style” beach breaks all the way to grinding little tubes. It’s certainly one of the most versatile boards we’ve ever ridden.
