The clocks have gone forward, and the sun has stopped setting just after lunch. It’s April, and the sunny summer sun is well and truly on its way. Your imagination, no doubt, is currently drifting to picturesque thoughts of idyllic beaches, rolling waves, and that soul-lifting goodness which comes when you’re splashing about in salty seawater. And so, because we can read your mind and know what you want before you know it yourself, here’s a rundown of five of our favourite surfboards for summer 2019.
Channel Islands – Water Hog
When a surfboard has been a Channel Islands best seller for 10 years, you can tell immediately that it’s… *extremely Ron Burgundy voice* … kind of a big deal. The Water Hog is a mini-longboard that bridges the gap between performance and out-and-out longboard. With a low entry rocker for trimming and enough tail rocker to stay high performance, this surfing hog delivers pure pig-in-mud happiness.
Sharp Eye – The Disco
Put on your party flares, get your dancing shoes and your John-Travolta-in-Saturday-Night-Fever white jackets on, and prepare to enjoy the sweet, sweet, majesty that is the Disco surfboard by Sharp Eye. What is it exactly? Well, in a nutshell, it’s a high performance shortboard that’s suitable for most conditions and which is particularly excellent on smaller days.
