In this episode, Noel Salas and friends review the Channel Islands "Happy Everyday." The "Happy Everyday" in Noel's opinion has tons of drive, quick get-up-and-go speed, lots of speed through turns, and a generous width in the nose and tail. CI created this surfboard to be a small-performance short board, but it actually goes well in overhead surf too and can be categorized as a daily driver as well. It is super forgiving. Noel rode it in the ocean in Southern California and Puerto Rico. He then rode it at Waco Surf with his Raked Thruster Fin setup and as a Quad and Pivot Twin Plus Trailer in head high and smaller waves. Noel calls it a daily driver for 2-6-foot surf.

Shey Yates from XTR loves his "Happy Everyday" and likes it as a thruster with the Neutral FCS II Performer fins in the Carbon Lite technology. He shares about what he likes about the board attributes making this a board he rides in most conditions.

Eric Peterson rides his "Happy Everyday" and felt the board was very favorable and nice and loose, being able to drift the tail when he wanted. He said he felt like he would shorten the board 1-2 inches if he was to ride it again at Waco Surf, but the board went well in mushy East Coast waves and great when the waves got steeper. He rode the Futures Haydenshapes Speed Generating Pivot fins, which helped the board stay loose and also the CI Futures fins in bigger waves at the Outer Banks, which had a little more hold.

Zack Smith loves his "Happy Everyday" and rides it at Waco Surf, in East Texas as well as in Mexico. He said this surfboard gives him the speed he wants in any wave he surfs.

Asa Cascavilla likes his CI "Happy Everyday" and said it transitions well from turn to turn, and it had good drive. He rides it with a Pivot Twin Plus Trailer set up at Waco. The board is super versatile, forgiving and carries good speed. Watch the full review for more. Enjoy!
