The Channel Islands Fred Rubble is the latest addition to Santa Barbara surfer Conner Coffin's quiver. He says : "The Fred Rubble is actually quite a bit different than my other boards. It has a lower entry rocker and a wider outline. It has more volume than a Proton, but it isn't really short and chunky like a Dumpster Diver. It's just a fun board for waves from waist high to a little over head. I've been riding mine two inches shorter than my standard shortboard and 1/4 inch wider. For example, my standard shortboard is a 5'11 x 18 3/8 x 2 3/16 Proton and I ride my Fred Rubble as a 5'9 x 18 5/8 x 2 3/16. So I'd recommend for you a 5'11? if your normal board is a 6'1". - Connor Coffin.
Ridden by Conner in all conditions, from low tide Rincon and dumpy HB, to the fat faced mushy stuff. The board features a single to double concave and comes standard in a squash tail. The wide point is forward to skate over flat sections but with more tail kick than a Flyer so it stays tight when turning hard in the pocket.
Dane claimed best turn of his life on this board in the Rip Curl Search Puerto Rico contest in 2010.
Super spicy and the perfect board to fill the gap between your shortboard and your Dumpster Diver
