The Chunnel

Kelly Slater is now testing another Channel Islands lab invention.

This board is called "The Chunnel". Why?

Water is compressed over the hole. As it passes over, it draws air into the Chunnel (channel/tunnel).

It is the principal of the U class racing boats on pontoons. Each side panel is veed out with hard concaves toward the rails. Check out the pic of the hole.

How do you think this one is going to go? Will it make it’s debut at Snapper Rocks?
