Channel Islands - Rocket Wide

Designed with waves in the lower end of the spectrum in mind, this model is the more user-friendly cousin of the Rocket 9. With extra surface area from a wider nose and tail block, plus a straighter rail line – this shape is purpose built for zipping down the line and connecting fast crumbly sections. Both paddle friendly and a relatively easy board to ride – this is sure to make sessions extra fun, particularly in less than ideal conditions.

“My brothers and I loved the speed and control we were feeling with the Rocket 9 and we wanted to see how we could apply those same levels of fun and performance to a board for small and gutless waves. The Rocket Wide features a wider tail block to skate across flat sections and a wider nose area to accommodate for better paddle power. It’s a shorter, wider skate machine designed to lift the fun factor when the waves are not a their best. So don’t let those small days get you down cause the Rocket Wide is ready for blast off!!” - Dane Gudauskas
