Chilli

After years of building the Birds Eye and Toucan models for all types of waves and surfers comes the Rare Bird. It features the rocker and bottom from the Toucan. Single concave from the front foot back to a double concave and slight vee out through the back fin for easy transition. Wide point a little forward in this board allows a really nice rail line that creates drive. Combining that with a medium rail and pulled in thumb tail this board screams versatility. 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 basically built this board from Mitch Coleborn's favorite Toucan in which he rode in a 5'4 with a 5'6 width and thickness. To break that down we suggest dropping 1‰ۡóÁÌÎ̝ÌÎ̥2 inches from the Toucan or 4-5 inches from your shortboard.

XF-TECH
Built using the latest in EPS/Epoxy materials; the XF technology combines a lightweight EPS core with Biaxial fibreglass cloth and Epoxy resin. All XF boards are constructed using a 36gram EPS core with a high-grade timber stringer, each board is hand laminated using epoxy resign and biaxial fibreglass on the deck providing a lighter, stronger board that feels fast and responsive under your feet increasing performance in a wide variety of conditions!í«ÌÎ_
- Biaxial Fibre Glass has about half of its fibres aligned along the length of the cloth (0 degrees) and about half across the cloth (90 degrees) lending itself as a perfect option for creating a controlled flex pattern.
- Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is a version of polystyrene foam typically found in the core of Firewire surfboards. EPS is typically the lightest of the three foams used in surfboard construction resulting in a much lighter board translating to increased buoyancy and floatation. Basically the lowest density or lightest board will float you the best! The advantage of better buoyancy is added paddling speed and increased manoeuvrability allowing you to ride a smaller board. EPS foam core is also less likely to deteriorate over time!
- Epoxy resin is a healthier alternative to polyester as epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds) than polyester resin, which means a decrease in harmful chemicals in the shop and the environment in general. In fact, epoxy is a common household item, safe to use without a mask and with only moderate ventilation. Epoxy is lighter than polyester. Under most circumstances, resin makes up a large part of a completed board's overall weight. Not only is epoxy lighter than polyester, but less is needed per coat. This ends up meaning a lighter surfboard, a big plus for most surfers. The biggest bonus However is the durability and strength of epoxy resin.
