Originating as a board for navigating long barrels in Mexico, the Taco Grinder is a direct result of CI team demanding shortboard performance in waves that require a semi-gun or step-up. Bottom is single concave throughout, a fuller rail and tail kick make it good paddler that still goes vertical. In short, a versatile high performance step-up designed for advanced surfers who want to take their good wave performance to the next level. Ride this board the same width and thickness as your all-around performance board, but 2” to 6” longer depending on how big the waves are.

ABOUT CHANNEL ISLANDS SURFBOARDS
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.
