CHILLI Rare Bird - Twin Tech EPS

Size

TWIN TECH

Twin Tech is Chilli's latest EPS/EPOXY construction. Twin Tech offers a performance orientated flex pattern that's designed to simulate a traditional stringer surfboard but with an Epoxy/EPS 'new board feeling' every surf. Most of the strength comes from the 'Twin Carbon' strategically running up the centre of the deck and bottom. This creates a strong flex pattern that accentuates speed and produces that 'pop and liveliness' but with an underlying feeling of predictability. Tried and tested with Chilli's team of all ages and sizes, this construction feels lightweight, balanced and perfect to ride. Twin Tech consists of a stringer-less 36 gram EPS core and Chilli's own designed 'Twin Carbon' fibre tape. Bottom: Single layer of 4oz fibreglass (featuring Chilli's signature line by Colan Australia), Twin Carbon tape plus individual FCS II plug patches. Deck: 1 x layer of 4oz fiberglass, 1 x layer of 220 gram biaxial cloth, Twin Carbon tape plus a V-Tail patch.

 

 

 

 

CHILLI - RARE BIRD

ALL ROUNDER

The Rare Bird, Chilli's best all round surfboard.

 

If you liked the Toucan and Birdseye you are going to love the Rare Bird. This board has proven to be our best selling and most favoured Chilli Surfboard of ALL time! We basically built this board from Mitch Coleborns favourite Toucan in which he rode a 5'4 with a 5'6 width and thickness. With a single concave under the front foot back to a double concave and slight vee out through the back fin for easy transition rail to rail. The wide point is a little further forward allowing a smooth flow in smaller waves.. Combining that with a medium rail and pulled in thumb tail this board screams versatility and forgiveness. Quin fin setup has proven a huge plus with this model allowing it to perform in small stuff right up to head high barrels.

 

 

We suggest you ride this 2-4 inches shorter than your standard shortboard. It sits nicely in between your Sugar and your A2.
