Comments about CHANNEL ISLANDS THE WHIP:
Bought a new Whip at the beginning of summer and surfed it for 4 months in solid Huntington and Newport Beach bowls. What a disappointment. At first I thought it was just me needing to figure out the board, after all it's a CI so you'd expect it to work. Then I had a pro friend try it out and his first impression was the same as mine. The board has so much mid/tail rocker that it lacks any sense of drive or direction. It's especially squirrely in good waves as it has a hard time carving a line. The flat, full entry and exaggerated tail rocker only worked in mushy surf, and even then just marginally. Leave this one for Kelly.
