In this episode, Noel Salas meets up with the Gudauskas brothers to review the new G-Skate by Channel Islands Surfboards. Tanner describes his surfboard as a stock 5'6". He said they collaborated to make a great surfboard for small California waves, but found it totally performs in Hawaii during large swells. They want surfers to be able to modify the board with the right fins and the right wave conditions, so they can have the most fun and success with this surfboard. Tanner rides the G-Skate as a thruster, while Pat loves to ride it as a Twin + Trailer for a little more speed and control. The target range for this board is waist- to head-high plus, the board fits well in barrels and can be used as a daily driver. The Gudauskas brothers give tips on how to order the dims on the G-Skate. Enjoy!
