Channel Islands Skinny Fish Review

What the Channel Islands site says about the Skinny Fish:

‘This 2007 rework was the original CI Fish template thinned out for maximum performance. Al tuned the rails to make the Skinny Fish versatile in all kinds of waves. Comes standard clear with sanded finish, we recommend riding with four 4.5 Merrick fins.’

What people are saying about it:

I have a 5’5” Skinny Fish and it’s one of the funnest boards I ever owned and for sure the best fish I ever rode. I have been riding this board in surf ranging from less than knee high beachbreaks and up to overhead reefs and it works well. The board paddles well so that it’s easy to catch waves it’s crazy fast, smooth and turns really really good.” – user davidavr on Surfer Mag

This is a great smaller wave board to have around during the summer. Definitely a really fun little board, catches the smaller stuff and holds pretty well up to about head high.” – user Squantaine on The Surfers View

I’ve been riding a Skinny Fish for about two years now and have so far found this to be the most versatile board here in the UK. Its thinner rails allow for much tighter and faster turns whilst a quad setup adds drive and hold in steeper waves. Also, more rocker and narrower nose fit much easier into the pocket when it gets a bit bigger and cleaner.” – user Mirx on Surfing Waves

I have a 5’6″ Skinny and feel it’s definitely the way to go… The skinny will still get it done on 1′ waves…” – user J-Bone on Surfer Mag

Badass board!” – user Jimmy O on YouTube
