A Proven Step-Up For Your Post-Pandemic Escape
An introduction to the Channel Islands Happy Traveler.
Where are you going when this whole pandemic officially sorts itself out? Indo? Panama? Maybe trick the significant other into a French getaway. Sneak out of the hotel room and surf Hossegor before checking off all the tourist boxes. Whatever premium wave you end up near, the Channel Island Happy Traveler is something we recommend traveling with.
The CI step-up was designed with those perfect days in mind. Although it is a few inches longer than your average shortboard, this bad boy is a certified blade, precisely sharpened by Britt Merrick and the CI crew. The Happy Traveler doesn’t care about generating speed or lift. Instead, its goal is to give the rider complete control when the waves provide an extra push. We’re talking about displacing energy, not creating it.
While the Happy Traveler was meant for surfing perfect waves, CI made sure a less than perfect surfer could ride it. Britt Merrick found a balance between responsiveness and easiness to ride, which appeals to surfers of all skill levels. Especially those on vacation who might be having a few beers after the session.
