Channel Islands Single Fin Review

What the Channel Islands site says about the Single Fin:

‘Late in 2011 Tom Curren requested a high performance Single Fin based on the principals of his famous Black Beauty design. Unlike our prior single fins, we added additional rocker and vee panels to provide a much looser feel while still maintaining drive for Tom’s signature arcs. He liked the results so much we decided to offer it to the single fin enthusiasts out there. Enjoy.


Tom also likes a 6-Channel version, available as custom.

We recommend a 7” to 8” medium rake single fin. Fin not included.’
