Channel Islands Ultra JoeChannel Islands
The Ultra Joe is the brand new, updated & slightly sleeker version of the popular model (the Average Joe) from a few years. Though a little more high performance and refined than the previous design, I would say that user friendly is still the name of the game with this board. An ultra fun, easy-to-ride board that is fantastic for more advanced surfers in smaller/weaker waves. Or alternatively, this shape can be used as a very forgiving allrounder for those more intermediate.
A super short, thicker and broader shape with a double-bump squash tail - the Ultra Joe has plenty of glide, stability & paddle power while remaining relatively nimble and easy to turn. With a lower rail, a narrower nose,a more pulled in tail and the addition of a touch of extra tail rocker in this updated design - it provides a little extra snap and spice through turns. Making it easier for you to throw down nice carving turns when better sections present themselves.
