The iconic Channel Island logo from the 80s has been recreated for a retro-inspired design.
Channel Islands is arguably one of the most influential surfboard brands in the world, and over the past 45 years its founder and ShaperAl Merrick has designed some of the most iconic models in surfing history. Today his son Britt continues this legacy.

The boards of the Made in USA brandare neither skateboards nor longboards but Surfskates. Made for riding or cruising the streets of the city, they are also suitable for bowls and ramps.
It was in 1996 that the Carver adventure began and continues to grow. During a calm summer in Venice Beach, one of California's legendary surf spots, Greg Falk and Neil Carver had been surfing all winter and were looking forward to surfing waves in warm summer water on the long summer days but the waves weren't there.
The Lords of Dogtown have a similar history leading them to invent the Skateboard, Greg and Neil took the opportunity to invent the first surf skate trucksallowing curves full of sensations.
By loosening the trucks of classic skateboard decks, we only obtained instability: We had to invent new wheel supports and seek maximum carving sensations.
Venice and Santa Monica are the perfect cities to skate with wide avenues, steps and other skate spots, but none of it provided the feeling we were looking for.
Worldwide, Carver is known to all surfersof the world ! This is why the brand has surrounded itself with professional surfers and renowned shape workshops to offer you ever more efficient products.
Taylor Knox, surfing legend, fell in love with boards very early on and developed his own Knox Kill model in collaboration with Carver.
Courtney Conlogue has also had her pro-model Conlogue Sea Tiger for a few years just like Yago Dora or Tyler Ridler.
In 2019, we also find superb co-branding models developed with major brands in the surf scene such as Channel Islands.and Lost Surfboards.
