Conner Coffin and Channel Islands have conjured up a delightful new treat named the Fred Rubble. This little gem plugs right into your quiver between the Dumpster Diver and standard shortboard.
Here’s a few words from Conner Coffin:
The Fred Rubble is actually quite a bit different than my other boards. It has a lower entry rocker and a wider outline. It has more volume than a Proton, but it isn’t really short and chunky like a Dumpster Diver. It’s just a fun board for waves from waist high to a little over head. I’ve been riding mine two inches shorter than my standard shortboard and 1/4 inch wider. For example, my standard shortboard is a 5’11″ x 18 3/8″ x 2 3/16″ Proton and I ride my Fred Rubble as a 5’9″ x 18 5/8″ x 2 3/16. So I’d recommend for you a 5’11″ if your normal board is a 6’1″.
Fred Rubble Features
Complimenting the front-footed surfer, the Fred Rubble packs more volume further up the board. This does two things; allows for harder surfing off the front foot and yields slightly more volume so the board can be ridden shorter.
The undercarriage boasts a single to double concave with a little vee off the back. This spicy combination allows the board to transition quickly from edge to edge.
Ideal Wave size:
This surfboard performs ideal in conditions ranging from waist-high to a few feet overhead.
Ridden by Conner in all conditions, from low tide Rincon and dumpy HB, to the fat faced mushy stuff. The wide point is forward to skate over flat sections but with more tail kick than a Flyer so it stays tight when turning hard in the pocket.
Dane claimed best turn of his life on this board in the Rip Curl Search Puerto Rico contest in 2010.
Super spicy and the perfect board to fill the gap between your shortboard and your Dumpster Diver.
