What the Channel Islands site says about The Biscuit:
‘A short and stubby tri-fin: the biscuit design was developed with Rob Machado in 2006. Like Rob, the Biscuit rides free and easy in the smallest surf and catches waves like boards a foot longer. Voted SIMA board of the year for 2008.
Order your biscuit 3″ to 6″ shorter than you are tall.
“…foam is your friend…don’t be scared of it. A little bit of extra foam here and there is good for the soul… and your surfing.” – Rob Machado
Custom order ONLY in PU/PE. Available STOCK in tuflite construction.
The Biscuit is also available in wood construction from our friends at Grain.’
What people are saying about it:
“Super fun board that is a revelation in small waves. Can make sections you would not have thought possible before, is fast and turns pretty well too. Different and very fun.” – user SteveCan on Surf Science
“Just purchased new Al Merrick biscuit and it feels great to ride. Feels free and really easy to maneuver.” – Marc Desveaux on reviewsurfboards.com
“The Channel Islands Wood Biscuit Is the Ride of My Dreams.” – Brent Rose on gizmodo.com
“The Channel Islands Biscuit is one of the fullest, floatiest surfboards on the market. It was once the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) “Board of the Year” with its creative design. It can be ridden super short compared to the other surfboards in your quiver. For its size, it’s hard to get more float and glide in a surfboard, and yet with the pulled in tail it turns easy!” – Surf Station
“I love this board. I surf it a little longer than usually recommended and find that it performs well in pretty much any surf…In California surf, this is the best all around board I’ve ever had.” – Brad Hill on ilearnsurfing.com
