Despite it's name, Channel Islands' The Rookie Surfboard unlocks its true potential when under the feet of an experienced rider. Designed around the powerful and aggressive Jordy Smith, the Rookie is perfect for waist to double overhead surf, and it conceals volume, so order about 1" shorter than other shortboards.

This is a OUTSTANDING board, first off. when i got it at the door and carried it inside, i couldnt believe how light it was. it is probly about 4-5 pounds without a leash or fins, which is the lightest board i have ever owned. it was super easy to attach the fins and leash, probly the easyest ever. but the real review is how it preforms on the ocean. it feels unreal on ur chest, super light, and is wide and weigh enough were u can easly stand up on the board when you catch a wave.
