Channel Islands the MSF Review

What the Channel Islands site says about the MSF:

‘Inspired by Rob Machado in 2001, the single fin has proven to ride as smooth as it looks. Full outline make the MSF fun even in small waves. Comes with a polished gloss finish and a retro style resin tint. Ride this board a little shorter than your everyday shortboard. CUSTOM order ONLY.’

What people are saying about it:

One reason I REALLY liked riding this board is that you are forced to drive off your back foot and have your feet situated appropriately and being a primarily front footed surfer I am hoping that riding this board more will train me to favor my back foot more and improve my surfing.” – user SouthCoastSurfer on Surfer Mag

Just picked up a used 6’9 CI MSF. Looking to step down from a longboard to ride in overhead beach break NY waves.” – user tmedford on Sway Locks

So I took my Al Merrick Single Fin out today and had a blast on it… as usual. It rides quite a bit different than a traditional 3-fin shortboard… It has thick rails and a lot of forward volume which means getting into waves is much easier than on a thruster. It also means that you can put more weight up towards the front to build speed on mushy waves. Goodbye chop-hop.” – Jonathan Dunning on Empower Network

I ride the 7’0 MSF as my primary board and I really like it, I enjoy the good paddling and ease of wave catching as well as handling.” – user Zosurf on Sway Locks
