Channel Islands Happy Step Up 6'6 x 20 x 2 11/16 Surfboard
The Channel Islands Happy Step Up 6'6 Surfboard builds on the performance of the standard squash model and delivers by making subtle updates to the bottom contours and utilizes a round pin tail to hold even better in big, powerful waves. Low entry rocker and strategically placed forward volume allow the board to paddle well. The Happy Step Up is a staple in the quivers of CI team riders on the pro tour and has put countless smiles on the faces of tube seekers around the world. We're excited it's now available.
Surf better. Be happy.

Polyurethane is the traditional way of hand making surfboards. This technique was introduced in the '50s and came after wooden surfboards. It starts with a polyurethane foam blank which is then glassed over with a fiberglass cloth. Polyester Resin is then applied by working on several layers before the board is finally sanded down to its final state. The result is a nice clean, smooth, hand shaped surfboard. What's also nice about this construction is that the PU foam is a closed cell so that it won't easily soak in water if you happen to encounter a ding. Plus, the technique has been perfected over the years and surfers know it so it feels familiar under their feet.
