The Channel Islands Two Happy has become the high-performance favorite amongst CI surfers.

The board’s concept originated when Britt Merrick made Dane Reynolds some hand shapes for his WSL wildcard spots at Fiji and J-Bay. Dane says:

“The Two Happy is pretty much just a modern performance shortboard, but with a little bit more moderate rocker profile. When the waves are a bit on the smaller side, which is pretty often where I live, I grab a NeckBeard 2 with Spine-Tek. When the surf gets good in the winter here or when I go on a surf trip, I’m grabbing my Two Happy for sure.”

The user-friendly board has also become the only shortboard in Mikey February’s quiver and the preferred blade for Parker Coffin. Parker paid a visit to his trusted shaper, and broke down what makes the board function so well.
