Pat Gudauskas' signature high performance shortboard by Al Merrick, this is the Channel Islands Fever Surfboard Review for Compare Surfboards! With roots in Al Merrick’s trusted and proven high performance short board designs, the Channel Islands Fever still handles more average waves. As Craig says, this CI Fever just keeps moving and has a nice sweet spot.
"Overview: The Fever was born from a desire for an all-around performance board based on elements I love, Speed, Drive, and Flair. My Goal in designing this board with Mike Andrews and Channel Islands was to create a surfboard that I could surf in almost any conditions and have a hell of a good time on it. I wanted a more accessible Tour Performance board that anyone who jumped onto it would instantly feel the speed and zest for creativity.
Conditions: I like to surf my Fever in anything from 2-3 foot softer California style beach break and point break waves, to 6ft+ World Tour style waves, like Snapper, J Bay, Bells, Lowers, Haleiwa, and Backdoor. I prefer to ride it just above my groveler/small wave board, and all the way until I need a step-up or round tail surfboard. "
