Rocket Wide by Al Merrick
With the fun waves of summer upon us, Dane Gudauskas breaks down the magic that makes the Rocket Wide model one of his all time favorites—especially those built with SpineTek.
Channel Islands' Rocket Wide is the incredibly user-friendly cousin of the Rocket 9.
This is Dane's take on his all-time CI favorite design:
“My brothers and I loved the speed and control we were feeling with the Rocket 9 and we wanted to see how we could apply those same levels of fun and performance to a board for small and gutless waves. The Rocket Wide features a wider tail block to skate across flat sections and a wider nose area to accommodate for better paddle power. It’s a shorter, wider skate machine designed to lift the fun factor when the waves are not a their best. So don’t let those small days get you down cause the Rocket Wide is ready for blast off!!”
Advanced surfers will ride this 2″-4″ shorter than their height.
