What the Channel Islands site says about The Gravy:
‘When Al and Rob get together, the possibilities are endless. Al steering Rob to a more conventional board, and Rob taking Al back in time, a direction he doesn’t always want to go. Reminiscent of Rob’s Biscuit model, the 2009 Gravy is shorter and wider than a normal shortboard, but with the addition of a few more performance characteristics. A more foiled and slightly narrower outline with a touch more rocker and fresh new look. With the nose width matching the tail width, not only are small waves fun again, but you can also still tear into them.
This board should be ridden approximately 4″ to 6″ shorter, 1/8″ thicker, and about an inch wider than your normal shortboard.
CUSTOM order ONLY. Machado’s dimensions are 5’3 1/2″ x 19 1/4″ x 2 1/4″’
What people are saying about it:
“I have some stock CI Gravy boards getting built right now. They basically seem like thinner versions of the CI Biscuit. They look like they would go good at my local mush spot.” – user Tom on Surfer Mag
