Originating as a board for navigating long barrels in Mexico, the Taco Grinder is a direct result of CI team demanding shortboard performance in waves that require a semi-gun or step-up. Bottom is single concave throughout, a fuller rail and tail kick make it good paddler that still goes vertical. In short, a versatile high performance step-up designed for advanced surfers who want to take their good wave performance to the next level. Ride this board the same width and thickness as your all-around performance board, but 2” to 6” longer depending on how big the waves are.
“The driving force behind Channel Islands Surfboards is the demand on design created by the world’s greatest surfers, allowing for the highest performance surfing possible. To provide the most dedicated surfers with the most advanced, performance designs is my passion” – Al Merrick, Designer/Shaper
