Channel Islands Fred Rubble Review

What the Channel Islands site says about the Fred Rubble:

‘The Fred Rubble is actually quite a bit different than my other boards. It has a lower entry rocker and a wider outline. It has more volume than a Proton, but it isn’t really short and chunky like a Dumpster Diver. It’s just a fun board for waves from waist high to a little over head. I’ve been riding mine two inches shorter than my standard shortboard and 1/4 inch wider. For example, my standard shortboard is a 5’11″ x 18 3/8″ x 2 3/16″ Proton and I ride my Fred Rubble as a 5’9″ x 18 5/8″ x 2 3/16″. So I’d recommend for you a 5’11″ if your normal board is a 6’1″. – Connor Coffin Features single to double concave and comes standard in a squash tail. A contest favorite of Kelly Slater’s as a round tail five-fin EPS/Epoxy Designed to be ridden about the same length as you are tall +/- 1″ Now also available with carbon strip bottom to concentrate flex at the tail and strengthen against breaking.’

What people are saying about it:

Super spicy and the perfect board to fill the gap between your shortboard and your Dumpster Diver.” – Huntington Surf & Sport

The Fred Rubble ripped and made for a very fun session from the first wave to the last.” – Jay DiMartino on About Sports

Volume with refinement; is simplicity the key to the Fred Rubble surfboards power? At first look, the Channel Islands Fred Rubble surfboard outline doesn’t look groundbreaking yet it excels in so many situations; it must be ridden to be believed.” – Compare Surfboards

Squash tail makes it easier to slide around and throw tail. Also makes the board less drivey.” – Ho Stevie

This board, designed by Conner himself, felt really forgiving, fast, and easy to ride right out of the bag.” – Grind TV
