Channel Islands New Flyer TUFLITE

Shape

The Channel Islands New Flyer in Tuflite construction gives you the same volume as the original CI Flyer design, but with a shorter rail line. Its forgiving two-stage rocker, coupled with a spiral vee starting in front of the fins, allows for quick rail-to-rail transitions. The signature Merrick hip provides a pivot point for tight arcs, giving your surfing some extra carving power.

Tuflite construction

Going over the different bullet points you’ll notice a theme – a Channel Islands New Flyer really does hold up in tougher conditions and will remain in your quiver for years to come, as its resilience will deal with all kinds of abuse, whether accidental or intentional:

1. Fused Cell EPS Core – Closed cell EPS core provides more response and Flotation
2. GreenPoxy® Resin – The latest innovations in bio-based epoxy chemistry
3. 2x Layers Fiberglass – E-glass has the highest strength-to-weight ratio available
4. Micro-Sandwich Veneer – the wood Veneer creates natural flex while adding breaking strength
5. Composite T-Stringer(s) – A T-Stringers adds to the power distribution while adding breaking strength
6. Carbon Tail Patches  – these distributes power and protect from dings while adding breaking strength
7. Reinforced Rails – Fiberglass reinforced rails enhance performance + durability
8. Exclusive Sandwich Technology – Surftech Tuflite boards are moulded with exclusive methods

Carbon composite construction combined with a Fused-Cell EPS core, Tuflite Pro Carbon (TLPC) utilizes a proprietary stringer system that is custom built to each individual board. Strategically positioned carbon reinforcement laminated over a layer of high-density foam strengthens the board while creating a lively flex pattern.

Fin System

The Channel Islands New Flyer is equipped with a full-on five-fin cluster, coming with the tried & proven FCS II system. Their website says: “Simple pre-glass finbox installation makes a tight foam-to-foam connection for optimal torsion strength that just might be the difference between continuing your session after a collision with something or having to replace your inbox.”

We like to think it’s a solid system that’s convenient if your quiver is two-tab heavy already.

About Channel Islands & Al Merrick

Channel Islands Surfboards was created by Al and Terry Merrick in 1969. From his birth, Britt spent his days in the factory by the beach in Santa Barbara, from toddling around blanks to sweeping out shaping rooms. Eventually, he started shaping alongside his father Al in 1990. He is now the lead shaper and designer for CI and carries on the family tradition of developing high-performance board designs collaborating with the world’s greatest surfers. From Tom Curren, to Dane Reynolds, Channel Islands continues to evolve with the highest standard of surfing.

Injection Tech is a patented precision-engineered torsion control system designed to optimise surfboard performance.

 Injection Tech utilises the pressures and forces from the surfer and the wave itself, elastic energy. By strategically engineering the position of the reinforcing material on the bottom of the board, we create less resistance to torsional flex, allowing the board to flow through turns with a more drawn out turning arch.

 The continuous length of reinforcing material is injected through the core of the board, from the bottom through to the deck, to increase drive, torque and pop in the tail region, much like the tail fin of a dolphin or tuna, generating speed and power.

The complete rail of an Injection Tech is kept free of any reinforcing elements to ensure a smooth even flex from nose to tail. This load and release flex works in unison with the rail to rail transition of the surfer generating speed and drive, different again to the Carbon Wrap technology

Designed and patented by HaydenShapes founder Hayden Cox, FutureFlex is an affluent mix of modern custom designed materials and modern design innovation for high performance surfing. The construction combines a stringer-less, high-density custom shaped EPS core laminated with biaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin and a parabolic carbon fiber frame.

The carbon fiber frame within the laminate is the key to the performance vitality of the overall product. Designed to maximize speed and drive while minimizing twist, FutureFlex essentially stores and releases energy as the surfer transitions through a turn. Tom Carroll, who was the very first person, after Hayden, to test drive the first ever FutureFlex, describes the tech as “the Ferrari of surfboards” for it’s fast-twitch nature and lively response. The FutureFlex construction creates a fast, dynamic and highly responsive surfboard that’s been design engineered for performance surfing ranging from the intermediate to advanced level.
