What the Channel Islands Surfboards site says about the Biscuit Bonzer:

‘The Biscuit originally began changing lineups in 2007. Revolutionary at the time with ultra-flat rocker and standard sizes going as short as 5’2″, the Biscuit rapidly became a favorite for many of the team riders and surfers around the world. Soon after, we began to notice that certain people “Bonzer-ized” their Biscuits with the Campbell’s 5-fin setup. Turns out the pronounced spiral vee in the back of the board jived perfectly with the Campbell brothers’ Bonzer 5 recipe. Now exactly 10 years later, that vision by a small crew of surfers is a reality. For all of you who remember the smile the Biscuit brought to your face, enjoy the added drive and rail-to-rail feel of the Bonzer 5 Biscuit. Ride this board about 4″ – 6″ shorter than you are tall.’

What people are saying about it:

“The Biscuit Bonzer combines the extremely popular Channel Islands Biscuit model with a the Campbell Brothers bonzer bottom contours and fin set up. The ultra-flat rocker and pronounced spiral vee really meshes well with the Bonzer 5 fin set up resulting in a super fast but still relatively forgiving speed machine. The flat rocker and relatively generous foil ensures early wave entry, great paddling speed and glide galore once on a wave face. The reasonably curvy outline and spiral vee in the tail helps tighten up the arcs you can draw, making it easier to put and keep this board on rail . The Biscuit Bonzer is a great model to spice up your surfing in small to medium sized waves with a really nice, lively feel underfoot.” – Zak Surfboards

“A fast and flowing shape, the Channel Islands Bonzer Biscuit takes a CI favorite and gives it a fun boost. The four glass on bonzers and spiral concave perfectly funnel water across and out the bottom of the board, providing plenty of drive with all the performance characteristics you need. A blending of a proven Channel Island shape coupled with the Campbell brothers Bonzer 5 set up has created this unique and exciting board. Now throw in your single fin and go surf!” – Cleanline Surf

    Awesome design. Floats, paddles, and surfs great BUT dents super easy. I took the board out in average 3ft surf, checked the bottom at the end of the session, and there were two marks. The number of dimples keeps going up as I’ve now taken the board out three times. Origami Bonzer. I am not sure whether it is the PU foam or the resin — it goes without saying that I expected way more from CI. My advice is to get this board in EPS or SPINE TEK and EPOXY.
