Slide 1: one of our more popular Grovelers of late—The Sampler.
Slide 3: The OG Flyer—a board Al shaped 20 years ago that helped establish the Groveler genre, and still holds incredible relevance and popularity to date.

While @connercoffin had multiple trusted and proven CI models in his J-Bay board bag—like the Fever and Fred Rubble—his blade of choice for the comp was a modified FR prototype he’s been developing with CI shaper @mike_walter. Although not currently a design you’ll find available anywhere, this proto is being discussed as a possible follow up to his beloved and ever popular Fred Rubble model.
.
For decades CI has worked with its teamriders like Conner to test, refine and prove new designs before making them available as part of the board offering. Stay tuned for further info on this prototype’s possible release down the road. Which won’t be until they’re confident they nailed it.

Hit the link in our bio to see this board in action and hear Conner’s take on it so far.
.
You can find Conner’s ever popular Fred Rubble model at your local CI dealer or on cisurfboards.com, and if you don’t see your size in stock please try out our Custom Boardbuilder program to create your perfect dims and trims.

@patrickgud Tahiti/Pipe quiver 2018. “This year‘s airbrushes have been my spirit sends on my boards,” explains Pat. “For Tahiti/pipe boards I decided to go for the Gerry Lopez @gerrylopezsurfboards inspired camo. He is eternally one of my favorite surfers and humans that has inspired my brothers and me to enjoy barrels since we were groms. I have to thank legend airbrush wizard @avinamark for his incredible work on these masterpiece sleds.”

Hanging and surfing with Bobby Martinez is the focus of @parkercoffin’s first episode in his new video series: Inspire. Link in bio.
.
Follow Parker as he lurks with his childhood hero on a recent trip to Australia’s East Coast.
.
While Parker begins to explore a new path in his surfing life—one that is far less focused on competition—he learns more about himself and what surfing means to him. Produced by Young Wise Tails, Inspire will be following Parker’s various inspirations that range from influential surfers like Bobby to things that get him out of his comfort zone like attempting to shape a surfboard.

Episode 1 is filmed by @seanlesh and edited by @ryanperry.
