Channel Islands The Pod Review

What the Channel Islands site says about The Pod:

‘A global favorite for punting since 2000. The Pod is built to fly. Deep concaves with a foiled nose and a swallow tail keep the Pod lively and maintains its high performance. The “snub” nose puts volume forward, allowing for maximum planing and wave catching. The wide, curvy outline makes the Pod friendly for all levels of surfers. Ride this board 6″ to 8″ shorter, about 1 1/2″ wider and about 1/8″ thicker, about 3″ to 6″ shorter than you are tall.’

What people are saying about it:

It’s a Pod…with a round tail. The uber versatile Channel Islands Pod is an oldie but a goodie. Loved by the masses, it rides fun and fast.” – Compare Surfboards

The pod surfs good like a high performance shortboard should. Fast down the line, goes very easily, cuts back well and throws buckets on snaps.” – user teeroi on Surfer Mag

The POD went like a dream from the first surf. It’s pretty loose and fast and holds no real surprises. It does everything you would think and does it very well. I have loved this board from moment I laid eyes on it.” – user Ted the Kiwi on Sea Breeze

Great board, rips it all.” – user Deek on Surf Science

The Pod was an expensive board, but it’s definitely been worth it. For someone my size, I’d say it’s a solid board that won’t hold you back. It’s allowed me to progress more in the little time than I’ve had it than in the last year with my other board. I think I’m gonna go pro.” – user drexnefex on nwbroweather.com
