Channel Islands Zeus Review

What the Channel Islands site says about the Zeus:

‘Taylor Knox calls the Zeus: “A quick and loose all-around performance shortboard”. Taylor’s personal board is: 6’0 x 11.78 x 19 x 14.67 x 2 1/2 and 29.6L The bottom contours are very light single entry, to double concave through the fins, to concave vee exit. The Zeus can be ridden as a squash, swallow or round pin in waves from waist to ceiling high. More of a tapered rail than Taylor’s past models including the Dagger and Ft Knox.’

What people are saying about it:

“Channel Islands has done it again with an impressive new model. From under the feet of Taylor Knox comes the Zeus, an all-around, very responsive shortboard. The Zeus can be ridden in waves ranging from waist high to well over head high (ceiling high as CI calls it).” – Cabe on SurfStation.com

Another glorious innovation from the guys at CI and former World Tour surfer, Taylor Knox. Knox’s surfing has influenced an entire generation of surfers and his signature boards are a trademark for their power surfing capabilities.

The bottom contours are very light single entry, to double concave through the fins, to concave vee exit. The Zeus can be ridden as a squash, swallow or round pin in waves from waist to ceiling high. The Zeus has a flatter rocker than you would find on the DFR and Rookie. More of a tapered rail than Taylor’s past models including the Dagger and Ft Knox.” – CleanLineSurf.com

“I truly enjoyed the Zeus and I was quite surprised at the performance for the most part. I have been riding most of my normal short boards at the widest 19′ so I thought going to 18 3/4 would be to narrow but it felt so responsive.” – Surf Show and Tell Reviews on YouTube
