Channel Islands #4

#4 has more rocker than a Weirdo Ripper, Neck beard, new flyer and out of all four concept boards that Dane had last year, #4 was Danes favorite because it had more rocker than the other three concept boards. That's why this board came to market instead of #1 or #2 or #3 - all of which had less rocker than #4.

You may find it Interesting that Dane Reynolds choose the most rocketed out board of the four of them given that the goal initially was a groveler for really small waves.

Too me this means the outline, bottom concaves and volume distribution of #4 do well for planing in small surf and allow us to add extreme rocker where we'd normally have to use flat rocker for planing purposes.

Nothing on the rail bumps on #4 screams release and pivot. They're placed far back and they don't 'have right angles and they don't seem like they're trying to make #4 release a ton of water off the bottom of the board. CI says they're there to increase #4's drive. We can make sense of that in a few different ways as discussed above.
