If you’ve ever wondered what magical weapon is beneath the feet of Dane Reynolds, here’s your answer.

The Channel Islands Sampler, named after Dane’s very own feature film, is a step down board designed specifically for generating speed and executing turns with unbelievable power. With inspiration drawn from a Willy Norris 6’4″ template, the board’s flat bottom allows for quick glide across the face and features a kink in the rail towards the tail, allowing for explosive hacks and sharp, controlled turns.

With Rincon as the main testing ground, watch the man talk through the board and how the template came about. One thing’s for sure, if speed is a main factor in your surfing, this one’s for you.
