SPINE-TEK Technology:

Channel Islands have worked with Shapers Australia to create SPINE-TEK, an innovative stringer spine that uses fibreglass and resin to create a more lively and responsive feel. Using the principles of elastic and kinetic energy, the spine can flex under pressure and then return the board back to its original rocker. Through this process the surfboard generates additional drive, speed, power and flow.

The unique fibre-based composition of SPINE-TEK weighs an impressive 1/4 of a pound, and is virtually unbreakable, replacing the traditional heavier timber stringers.
