From CI -
“The Fred Rubble is actually quite a bit different than my other boards. It has a lower entry rocker and a wider outline. It has more volume than a Proton, but it isn’t really short and chunky like a Dumpster Diver. It’s just a fun board for waves from waist high to a little over head. I’ve been riding mine two inches shorter than my standard shortboard and 1/4 inch wider. For example, my standard shortboard is a 5’11″ x 18 3/8″ x 2 3/16″ Proton and I ride my Fred Rubble as a 5’9″ x 18 5/8″ x 2 3/16″. So I’d recommend for you a 5’11″ if your normal board is a 6’1″. – Conner Coffin Features single to double concave and comes standard in a squash tail. A contest favorite of Kelly Slater’s as a round tail five-fin EPS/Epoxy Designed to be ridden about the same length as you are tall +/- 1″
About FlexBar -
"Introducing patented Flexbar technology by Channel Islands and Barron Flex. Flex, rebound, and resonance all play a role in how your board works. Harnessing and controlling these will take board performance to the next level. The Flexbar optimizes the energy and spring derived from both longitudinal and torsional tail flex in your surfboard by refining and focusing these forces under the back foot. Utilizing a combination of alternating foam densities and fiberglass through the entire board, Flexbar finally allows the surfer to feel and use the energy in your board through maneuvers. All surfboards will eventually lose their “pop” and begin to feel dead, Flexbar maintains the optimum flex pattern through the life of your board.
Another major component of Flexbar technology is composite sandwich foam running from center to the apex of the rail. This acts as the main base for the Flexbar and allows the board to flex without losing any of the board’s overall longitude and torsional strength. This also lowers the vibration (resonance), which is often identified as a negative in EPS cores; the result is a smoother feeling ride in all conditions, but while retaining the added buoyancy of EPS.
By using state of the art manufacturing processes combined with the best available epoxy resins and EPS foam cores, we have found that the durability of the each board built with Flexbar technology has been greater than a PU/PE using the same glassing layup."
