Television: Eclectic crew come to Surf Stadium Japan

Channel Islands recently toured Japan to promote their new movie and the CI Pro shortboard model. American team riders Parker Coffin, Tanner Gudauskas and Devon Howard joined Japanese surfers Mar, Kaito and Hide.

“Over the past several decades, Channel Islands Surfboards and the Merrick family have held close ties with Japan and its passionate surf community,” said Britt Merrick. “In short, we love Japan! The people, the food, the vibes are all so great.”

The video by Alex Kilauano captures the many flavorful moments from the adventure, including the dream session with special guest Tom Carroll.
