The Fever in the words of Patrick Gudauskas:
Overview: The Fever was born from a desire for an all-around performance board based on elements I love, Speed, Drive, and Flair. My Goal in designing this board with Mike Andrews and Channel Islands was to create a surfboard that I could surf in almost any conditions and have a hell of a good time on it. I wanted a more accessible Tour Performance board that anyone who jumped onto it would instantly feel the speed and zest for creativity.
Conditions: I like to surf my Fever in anything from 2-3 foot softer California style beach break and point break waves, to 6ft+ World Tour style waves, like Snapper, J Bay, Bells, Lowers, Haleiwa, and Backdoor. I prefer to ride it just above my groveler/small wave board, and all the way until I need a step-up or round tail surfboard.
TEAM/ STAFF REVIEW
Taylor Hutchison – Team Rider and Staff Member rides:
(6’3 / 75 KGS) BOARD: 5’11 x 18 7/8 x 2 3/8 – 27.9 Litres FINS: FCSII Large Carver (NeoGlass)/ FCSII Filipe Toldeo Large
Ideal conditions: 3-5 ft, Point and Beach breaks
I have surfed the CI Fever in just about every wave type and condition and have found it to be the best all-rounder I have owned to date. It goes best for me in the 3-5 foot range on both point breaks and beach breaks. It has instant speed straight off the take-off which carries through just about any type of turn in any part of the wave.
Once you start getting into the 5-6 ft+ range this board does struggle a little however still does the job, especially if the waves are clean. Overall, the Channel Islands Fever is a great model that is my favourite CI model to date and would have to be one of the best all-rounders on the market.
