Lets break down the key strength elements - a strong board plays a huge part in having trust in your board when the waves are good. This board is glassed with 6 oz x 4 oz deck / 4 oz + Innegra + twin carbon strip bottom. The Twin carbon is designed to reinforce the body of the board down the centre and the Innegra is woven into the bottom roll of 4 oz fibreglass and assists with flex so your board still performs at a high level. Its designed to be strong and perform. We did R&D through Project Black over the past 12 months this board with riders Jay Davies and Luke Egan both big builds and heavy footed surfers.
The design - weve taken the Fader (a popular Chilli model for good to excellent wave types) and added more foam in the centre of the board, allowing more paddle power. The rocker is a very smooth entry in the nose with a flow all the way out through the tail, its rides silky smooth out on the face and tight in the pocket. A med/low rail to bite into the water but not too low, its very forgiving. Bottom con- tour is a shallow single concave right through the board, enough for speed but shallow enough to keep flow in all conditions. Having the continuous outline into a neat round tail its a pleasure to ride.
