As described by Jack Robbo from the 2022 Stab In The Dark, “this board is easy to ride. You don’t have to think, you just jump on it and surf.” Our new performance driver packs high-performance surfing into a forgiving shortboard that caters to intermediate and advanced surfers. The Shortie was refined throughout 2021 with Adriano de Souza (and Chilli team riders) during his final year on the WSL championship tour.
James had “user friendly” mixed with “high performance” in his brief. He went to work combining a balanced rocker from nose to tail (creating a wide generous sweet spot), a moderate single concave (speed generating with drive), and a semi-rounded pin tail (control in the pocket at high speed). This created a forgiving performance shortie that is easy for surfers to jump on and immediately gel.
The Shortie fits into the Chilli range as a good wave driver for 2-6 feet. Recommended for the upper end of intermediate to advanced groms.
Revamped colour Chilli ‘shadow’ Peppa logos with rail sprays to match, 3 colours to choose from.
