Channel Islands 05 Biscuit 5’3
Based on a classic egg outline, the Channel Islands Biscuit is tweaked it into something more performance-oriented with a tri-fin setup. It’s got a more compact shape, squeezed down, flattened and small. There’s a lot of foam for this length, making it a great board for mushy waves, but it will turn in the pocket due to its round tail shape.
On a Biscuit, you will be able to snap and carve similar to a shortboard. Try riding one that’s 6 to 8 inches shorter than your regular shortboard and be amazed at the performance under your feet.
We thin it’s one of the fullest, floatiest surfboards on the market, which is why the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) has voted it “Board of the Year” back in the day because of its creative design.
The Channel Islands Biscuit was developed with Rob Machado so you could ride free and easy, in the smallest surf and still be able to catch waves like you’re paddling a board that’s easily a foot longer. And it works!
“Order your biscuit 3 to 6 inches shorter than you are tall”; is the recommendation from Channel Islands themselves, and it’s easy to see where they are coming from. The board is thicker than what we are used to, and it excels in mush where other boards tend to frustrate.
But that not just our opinion – reviews online consistently point out how a Biscuit can make more out of wanting conditions. If your quiver is performance oriented, having a biscuit for smaller days is going to increase your wave count.

Injection Tech is a patented precision-engineered torsion control system designed to optimise surfboard performance.
Injection Tech utilises the pressures and forces from the surfer and the wave itself, elastic energy. By strategically engineering the position of the reinforcing material on the bottom of the board, we create less resistance to torsional flex, allowing the board to flow through turns with a more drawn out turning arch.
The continuous length of reinforcing material is injected through the core of the board, from the bottom through to the deck, to increase drive, torque and pop in the tail region, much like the tail fin of a dolphin or tuna, generating speed and power.
The complete rail of an Injection Tech is kept free of any reinforcing elements to ensure a smooth even flex from nose to tail. This load and release flex works in unison with the rail to rail transition of the surfer generating speed and drive, different again to the Carbon Wrap technology
Designed and patented by Haydenshapes founder Hayden Cox, FutureFlex is an affluent mix of modern custom designed materials and modern design innovation for high performance surfing. The construction combines a stringer-less, high-density custom shaped EPS core laminated with biaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin and a parabolic carbon fiber frame.
The carbon fiber frame within the laminate is the key to the performance vitality of the overall product. Designed to maximize speed and drive while minimizing twist, FutureFlex essentially stores and releases energy as the surfer transitions through a turn. Tom Carroll, who was the very first person, after Hayden, to test drive the first ever FutureFlex, describes the tech as “the Ferrari of surfboards” for it’s fast-twitch nature and lively response. The FutureFlex construction creates a fast, dynamic and highly responsive surfboard that’s been design engineered for performance surfing ranging from the intermediate to advanced level.
