Channel Islands The Motor Boat Review

What the Channel Islands site says about The Motor Boat:

‘In 2010 Rob Machado wanted to bridge the gap between his Biscuit and Gravy, and the Motorboat did that. Low entry rocker along with single to double concave with vee make this board really motor. Super fast and fun in flat faced waves, the Motorboat blends performance and volume into the ideal small to medium wave performance board. Ride this board shorter than you are tall. CUSTOM ORDER ONLY.’

What people are saying about it:

One of the original shorter, wider, fatter hybrid shortboards, the Channel Islands Motorboat by Rob Machado loves to glide across flat sections at your average, flatter faced beach break.” – Compare Surfboards

Introducing ‘The Mullet’. Well that’s what I’ve called my 6’2″ Al Merrick Motorboat by Rob Machado. The board is business at the front and party at the back.” – Willy on ciyf.blogspot.com

There is no doubt with the Channel Islands Motorboat surfboard that what you will get is quality and top performance.” – surfingbyjj.blogspot.com

I just picked up a 5’8” CI Motorboat… I found it really easy to get in early with the low rocker. The foam distribution is really nice allowing for good amount centered on your front foot but not too much near the nose so as to hinder paddling or duck diving.” – user Paul on Compare Surfboards
