What the Channel Islands site says about the Pod Mod:
‘In 2000 the original Pod rapidly became a global favorite, allowing surfers to drop six inches off their shortboards and revolutionize punting. The Pod Mod design is a heavily modified Pod, designed to be ridden even shorter and wider than the original, catering to the surfer that wants a little more volume forward to catch waves but doesn’t want to sacrifice performance. The tail has been widened for small wave glide, and the original single to double concave has been replaced with a flat entry to concave vee for quick rail to rail transitions. Experienced surfers ride this board 3”- 6” shorter than you are tall.’
What people are saying about it:
“The Channel Islands Pod Mod is the latest board from the shaping bay of Al Merrick, and is sure to be a big hit this summer! With the volume shifted forward together with the wide tail, this board will give you small wave glide and have you catching waves easily, without hindering performance.
Experience surfers would ride this board 3″ – 6″ shorter than you are tall.” – Downthelinesurf.co.uk
“The thing I really liked about this board is it just feels really lively and snappy when I was surfing it in smaller conditions. Gets a lot of speed very quickly but it still feels quite stable. I think this board, most people can jump on at most ability levels and get something good out of it.” – Benny, CompareSurfboards
“It’s an easy all-around, summer fun board.” – Hansen Surfboards
