“The Fred Rubble is actually quite a bit different than my other boards. It has a lower entry rocker and a wider outline. It has more volume than a Proton, but it isn’t really short and chunky like a Dumpster Diver. It’s just a fun board for waves from waist high to a little over head. I’ve been riding mine two inches shorter than my standard shortboard and 1/4 inch wider. For example, my standard shortboard is a 5’11″ x 18 3/8″ x 2 3/16″ Proton and I ride my Fred Rubble as a 5’9″ x 18 5/8″ x 2 3/16″. So I’d recommend for you a 5’11″ if your normal board is a 6’1″. - Connor Coffin
Features single to double concave and comes standard in a squash tail.
Designed to be ridden about the same length as you are tall or even 1″ shorter
Ridden by Conner and the CI team in all conditions, from low tide Rincon and dumpy HB, to the fat faced mushy stuff. The wide point is forward to skate over flat sections but with more tail kick than a Flyer so it stays tight when turning hard in the pocket. Dane claimed best turn of his life on this board in the Rip Curl Search Puerto Rico contest in 2010.
Super spicy and the perfect board to fill the gap between your shortboard and your Dumpster Diver.
Knee to shoulder high
IDEAL WAVE SIZE
Waist to ceiling
Channel Islands FCS compatible fin plugs. For best results ride this board with the Merrick template—look for the hexagons.

I decided to pick this board up after hearing/seeing great things from Paavo at Cleanline. I couldn't afford to bring any of my boards back from Indonesia so when I got home and saved a bit of cash I wanted to buy a board that would work in all conditions. The board has yet to disappoint. It works great in literally anything mother nature throws at it. I've surfed it in well overhead juice where it handled better than most shapes I've owned made for that kind of surf. It also work surprising well in small average surf down to about waist high. I could write all day about how amazing this board is but I'm sure you get the point. Channel Islands comes out with a new board model every month it seems, but for me if it's not broke don't fix it. I'll be for sure ordering more Fred's when this one's time is over!
