Surftech Channel Islands Flyer II Surfboard - $458.37

You can only afford one, which means that you won't have the opportunity to choose among multiple waveriders after a quick peep at the surf. And since you can only have one board, Surftech built Al Merrick's versatile shape and combined it with an 1/4ber-durable core to create the Channel Islands Flyer II Surfboard. Steep entry rocker and thicker rails suit smaller waves, while the swallow tail lets your hold those arcs longer when the ocean kicks up and starts sending lips over the heads of the biggest dudes out there. - $458.37
