Burning hot and bright in the lineup, the Channel Islands Fever Surfboard knows how to turn up the heat. Born from a desire for an all-around performance board based on speed, drive, and flair, the Fever does double duty in the waves. Built for hollow, rippable waves but able to glide though the flats, the Fever has a dependable sweet spot for paramount fun. Borrowing Pat’s favorite elements of the Proton, Rookie and MBM, and combining them with a subtle single concave and lower rocker resulted in a board with a slightly more parallel outline and forgiving rocker.

The Fever has its roots in Al Merrick’s trusted and proven high performance short board designs. The goal in designing this board with Mike Andrews and Patrick Gudauskas was to create a more accessible tour level performance board that anyone who jumped onto it would “instantly feel the speed and zest for creativity.” CI chopped rockers off the nose and tail to flatten the design out and allow it to fly, then added a single concave, and a tail template inspired by the CI MBM. The intention was to give the surfboard drive and control off the back 1/3 of the surfboard, so it could be fast, but also dominate in big sections and hollow bowls.

The Fever has proven to be an all-around design that excels in a wide range of conditions and wave types. The Fever also has FlexBar Technology giving it extra pop and flair that is a nice compliment to the relatively simple outline. Ride the Fever just above your groveler/small wave board, and all the way until you need a step-up or round tail surfboard.

"The fever has its roots in Al’s trusted and proven high performance short board series. What we did is we looked at some parts of a few different models Pat loves, including the Rookie/Remix/Mbm and the Proton. From the Rookie we stole the “engine room” i.e., the entry rocker and the rail rocker leading into the fins, but lowered the overall rocker. We also used the slightly shallower concave found on Al’s Remix, compared to the Rookie, helping it be more adaptable in less than perfect waves. From the MBM we took Al’s hip squash, which gives great pivot off the bottom and awesome release in the lip. We then gave it a slightly wider nose and tail than the Rookie, which makes the outline a lil more parallel like the Proton, this produces more drive…and there you have it, Pat’s Fever. Still a very high performance board but one that’s a bit more of an all-rounder and very versatile in a wider range of conditions which is exactly what Pat was searching for!" - shaper, Mike Andrews
