Channel Islands MX Review

What the Channel Islands site says about the MX:

‘During the early 2000s the MX was the yardstick of the shortboard line and CI’s longest standing shorty: low entry rocker with accelerated rocker out the tail. Offering a forgiving and responsive feel, the M-X works well with all types of surfers, but best for those who like to trim off the front foot and turn off the back foot.’

What people are saying about it:

“I’ve been riding this 6’5″ CI MX model board for awhile now. It’s very solid and predictable, which I like not being in the water everyday like I used to be…(I like the way it’s solid off the bottom and comes around easily off the top) I am more of a back-foot, drive off the tail surfer. Old- school power, not new-school airs and wiggles.” – KU22 on SurferMag.com

“If you feel you drive more on your forward foot the lower rocker will work well for you. Quick turns in the pocket off the back foot.” – CISurfboardsReview.com

“The board picks up beautifully on anything above 3 foot with little paddling, and really accelerates down the wave. Its turns very rapidly and can appear quite twitchy until you get used to it…This board would suit someone looking for an all round paddle-into-most things UK board. Its is not a beginners board but is capable of being a lone quiver board. As a responsible person I would strongly discourage any beginners from buying it.” – Speeding Mullet on MagicSeaweed.com

“Great on drops and very stable.” – djow on SurfScience.com
