Product Info

The Torq Channel Islands X-Lite Pod Mod 5'6" Surfboard is the ultimate choice for any surfer seeking high-performance in small to medium sized waves. Designed in collaboration with Channel Islands, this board features a wide outline and low rocker, allowing for easy paddling and quick acceleration. Meant to be ridden even shorter and wider than the original Pod, this bad boy is here to revolutionize punting and allow experienced surfers to thrive on boards that are 3" - 6" shorter than they are tall.

Product Details


Torq X-Lite TechnologyX-Lite is a torq Epoxy technology developed specifically for performance boards. This is lighter, stronger and more Eco than a traditional PU/Polyester board, now with a 50% thinner Shield Skin for weight reduction. This innovative technology is used exclusively on the X-Lite Channel Islands models; the best selling Pod Mod and all new Chancho. X-Lite technology now features an additional wood layer sandwich between the two deck biaxial layers. This wood composite is incredibly ding resistant but without adding stiffness usually associated with strength.


X-Lite Pod Mod ShapingThe Pod Mod design is a heavily modified Pod, designed to be ridden even shorter and wider than the original, catering to the surfer that wants a little more volume forward to catch waves but doesn’t want to sacrifice performance. The tail has been widened for small wave glide, and the original single to double concave has been replaced with a flat entry to concave vee for quick rail to rail transitions.

Experienced surfers ride this board 3" - 6" shorter than you are tall.
