Latest CI model from Dane's brain takes aim at point breaks



Board of the Week

The Black and White feels similar to a Channel Islands MBM

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 23 January, 2016 - An all-around, high performance shortboard designed for down the line speed and easy rail-to-rail transitions, the Black & White is based on a favorite hand shape Britt Merrick made Dane Reynolds for Santa Barbara area point breaks. Dane relates its feel to a good MBM.

The Black & White has a fairly low entry rocker, a staged flat-ish section between the feet, and an accelerated kick out the tail. A single concave runs the length of the board, with a very slight double within the single between the fins, and a hint of vee exiting the tail block.

A flat deck design, the Black & White offers improved flex characteristics, a solid under-your-feet feel, and full rails. The board should be ridden 1/8” thinner than your normal shortboard to have the same general volume.

The Black & White is suitable for most surfers in most types of surf where a shortboard is appropriate.  Ride this board about your same height to 3” longer than you are tall.
