Rarest Bird | Twin Tech Epoxy | Chilli Surfboards | Versatile Hybrid Shortboard

Back in 2015, Chilli designed the Rare Bird. It started out in the category of ‘small wave performance’ but quickly appealed to an audience of surfers who rode it in small onshore summer slop through to 6 foot barrelling waves in Indonesia. The feedback was always, “This is the most versatile surfboard ever, it just works”! From here the Rarest Bird emerged… with more volume and foam, this versatile hybrid appeals to a wide range of surfers looking for a performance surfboard that does it all.

Most surfers still want to make the most of small conditions. We just can't help ourselves and this is a slightly wider & thicker version of our favourite, The Rare Bird. With a fuller outline and more volume, it allows you to enjoy weaker, smaller waves while not sacrificing performance. The single to double concave gives you a fast and responsive board in conditions that are sub par. The wide point of the board has been pushed a bit forward than most shortboards, to create more curve under your chest - this helps you to get into waves a bit easier, and when your up and riding, this assists in maintaining speed over dead sections. The round tail makes the board user friendly in everything from beachies to reef or point breaks. This board is designed with contours that are balanced for speed, flow and the board reacts beautifully when executing critical turns.  

Suitable for every level of intermediate class surfer, ride it about 1 inches shorter than your standard shortboard. Its a perfect addition to your quiver.

Technical Construction Info

Twin Tech
Twin Tech is Chilli’s latest construction consisting 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.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.
