6'5 CI Mid Twin

$ 1,120.00 USD

The Mid Twin is best described as an incredibly responsive, spicy mid-length that allows riders to draw smooth - classic lines with effortless trim speeds while still offering the high levels of performance customers expect from Channel Islands. Riders may also experience surprisingly high top-end speeds that seamlessly and confidently flow into quick, drivey bottom turns or redirections out on the open face.

 

Thanks to added lift from the larger twin fins, we were able to cut down the board’s length by 1” from the original Mid dims—resulting in crisper turns through critical sections. Although it called for a slightly shorter rail line, we wanted to keep the Mid Twin’s stock volume (liters) as close to the original as possible for optimal paddling—so a tad bit of width and thickness was added. To help the board perform even better rail to rail and be more sensitive through turns when you need it, we added just a touch more tail rocker. Team riders have shared they are sometimes going as much as 4 inches shorter than the original Mid because of all these updates with fins, dims and rocker—as well as the fact that we built the shorter sized Mid Twins with more generous volume than our original Mid stock dims.
