The Mavs Gun was designed between Peter Mel and Britt Merrick to do what any good big-wave board should: Paddle extremely well, make crazy drops with great hold and control, then fly down the line and drive through heavy sections with unrivaled confidence. Rocker is something Peter is very passionate about, and he credits the Mavs Gun rocker as a key aspect to the design’s performance. Peter says the five-fin placement on the Mavs Gun is a significant feature that makes this board magic. Peter and his son John have put a lot of time into dialing in the fins. Don’t let the name fool you, Peter notes the scalability of the Mavs Gun down into sizes you’d want for big beach breaks (think OB San Francisco or Puerto Escondido) is seamless. He says its rocker profile at any length works very well in hollow surf, and the proportions are just right for most common body types in your average double to triple overhead zone ++ zone.

Product Construction

Polyurethane/Polyester Resin
Building a board in PU means using a Polyurethane foam blank and glassing it with polyester (PE) resin . This is how the majority of today’s surfboards are built. It is not a new way to make a board, but the materials are very stable, strong, consistent, and easy to work with. Many surfers prefer the feel of PU boards because that is what they have ridden all their lives, and because they feel really good.

Channel Island’s strongest stock glass is all guns and shortboards over 7’2” with one full layer of 6 oz. deck, one full layer of 4 oz. deck, and one, and one full layer of 6 oz. bottom results as the most durable glass option from Channel Islands.

Additional Info


This is the best gun I’ve ever ridden. It’s not only the fastest gun I’ve ever had, it is the most user friendly. There has been a gun design trend toward lower entry rocker among some of the leading models out there. My issue with lower entry rocker is you are sacrificing the curve needed to fit your board into some rather precarious situations. The five-fin cluster is put further forward than other standard guns out there. This allows the board to turn with greater control, positivity, and overall sensitivity to make the most subtle of adjustments when you need it most. You run quads when speed is all you need and go thruster when the conditions are more rugged, and you need great control on your take-offs.” — Peter Mel
