Channel Islands Biscuit

Manufacturer Description
The Biscuit by Channel Island is a short and stubby tri-fin: the biscuit design was developed with Rob Machado. Like Rob, the Biscuit rides free and easy in the smallest surf and catches waves like boards a foot longer. Order your biscuit 8” to 10” shorter, 1” to 2” wider and ½ to ¾” thicker than your shortboard. “…foam is your friend…don’t be scared of it. A little bit of extra foam here and there is good for the soul… and your surfing.” - Rob WHO SHOULD RIDE THIS BOARD You are open to drawing new lines with the shortest rail possible. Everyone should ride this board at least twice.

I often pearl when taking steeper waves

Super fun board that is a revelation in small waves. Can make sections you would not have thought possible before, is fast and turns pretty well too. Different and very fun

I am 50years old and of moderate fitness. I have about 30 years experience but had about a 10year layoff for parenting duties. Now have a 6'7 biscuit for fun and slop, DHD monster for better and bigger waves, Mctavish evo II for long rolling points. I need a short performance board for hollow fast beach breaks. Thanks for your help

Need to have a board that gets speed in small waves to accomplish aerials.

at 6'3 its too big to get the best out of it. but as it's very floaty it is used as a summer slop catcher

Well I actually don't have the CI Biscuit. But it's the closest thing to the Gravy, which has a pin tail and more rocker. It's really good for mid-sized waves (4-7 ft) and is super fun

Foam is good...but dang these are thick. Zero rocker means tons of speed to make crumbly sections and reforms, but no nose flip will make you pearl in any steeper take-offs.

Easy board to ride, you have an almost longboard float and paddle. I ride this board on Knee high to overhead days great all around board.

great paddling very thick and a little hard to get your hands around range 1.5 to around 4 foot max i think-windchop on wave surface will make epoxy board unstable esp if surf 4 ft plus

LOOKING FOR A FAST HEAD + BOARD FOR THOSE ODD DAYS WHEN A BISCUIT WONT CUT IT

I own a 6'3" surftech version of this board. I absolutely love it! Perfect board for a guy getting a bit older and a bit heavier. This board is quite chunky, so lots of volume to paddle well. Turns well and I love the way the rounded pintail surfs. Perfect for mushy waves. It's got a fairly flat rocker so in hollow waves can sometimes pearl if you get caught too high and are trying to race the section. But it's not really for surfing such waves. Perfect for small pointbreaks or mushy waves. You really can turn it like a shortboard, hit the lip and carve. I love it!!! It's my go to board.
