Need a ‘good wave’, one board quiver? Well, this is the board you’re after. The second incarnation of the Faded is designed for hollow, heavier waves, this board paddles like a step-up and surfs like a shortboard.
Designed with Jay Davies and Balaram Stack with both overseas travel and pumping waves at home in mind, this board has been put through its paces in places from Costa Rica to West Oz. While it’s primarily designed for hollow tubes, don’t worry, it’ll glide like butter in good waves anywhere from 3 foot to 8-plus.
OUTLINE: The Faded 2.0 has a full nose (paddle power) and smooth middle to relatively straight bottom 1/3 of the board which gives the board drive out through the rounded pin-tail.
ROCKER: The board has a flat-medium entry, and a smooth medium tail rocker. This compliments the double concave and vee bottom contour. In essence, it’s fast with a lot of control in tight situations
CONTOURS: Bottom contour is single concave from 12 inches down to middle of the board, a slight double concave from the midpoint runs down into a vee out through the tail. This gives the board hold and drive when you’re in hollow, fast waves where control is necessary.
PERFORMANCE: When designing a ‘good wave’ board you need to ensure the performance attributes complement each other. The Faded 2.0 was built to do exactly that. Explicitly, it is the boards outline, rocker, and bottom contours which make this board work so well. The top 1/3 has a full-ish outline and is packed with volume, combine this with a flat entry rocker and you’ll find chipping into big waves a breeze. Whether the waves are fast and hollow, or big and chunky, this board has the ability to paddle into it (insanity not included).
Through the middle section the board ‘mellows out’ with a single concave, straight outline and low rail bite give this board both speed, and bite to hold a line. The back-third of the board is where the control is generated. The double concave into a vee out the tail gives this board great rail-to-rail transition and also helps the board hold a line when you’re racing across the face, drawing a controlled bottom turn, or aim ing to strike noon off the lip. All in all this board is a paddle machine at the front and controlled fun park at the rear.

The founding owner of Chilli Surfboards, Jamie Cheal, did his first top turn on a surfboard at the Gold Coast's Greenmount aged 13, and he's been surfing most days since.
In his late teens, Cheal moved to Sydney and started working at a surfboard factory, sanding and sweeping for next to nothing. In 1995, aged 22, Cheal shaped his first board. When he eventually took his creation to water he was more than a little surprised; It actually worked! "It was a total fluke," he laughs. "I shaped about 20 more after that first one and they all went like wet towels."
Cheal knew it wouldn't be a walk in the park, but with that first gem in mind, he persevered with shaping and not long afterwards, it started to pay off. Two years later, Chilli Surfboards was born in a small factory in Brookvale.
In the years that followed, demand for Cheal's boards grew and each week he produced more. Soon, demand was high and some of Australia's best surfers were riding Chilli Surfboards to victory. It wasn't long before World Tour surfers started asking Cheal for boards, too. In 2004, the dearly missed Andy Irons rode Chilli Surfboards in his successful campaign to claim a third world title.
Cheal loves seeing the best surfers in the world ride his boards but would take just as much pride in seeing one under your feet. That's why he's worked hard to create a model range that has something for everyone. Check them out on this site and find your next dream board.
