The Chilli Hot Knife is the combination of two popular surfboard models (Peri Peri & Stepdown 2) resulting in what can only be described as a full-figured ‘all rounder’ shortboard. This particular model was tried and tested with one of Chilli’s bigger built team riders, Jay Davies. “This board is super easy to ride and feels forgiving in all conditions”.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The Chilli Hot Knife is the combination of two popular surfboard models (Peri Peri & Stepdown 2) resulting in what can only be described as a full-figured ‘all rounder’ shortboard. This particular model was tried and tested with one of Chilli’s bigger built team riders, Jay Davies. “This board is super easy to ride and feels forgiving in all conditions”.
OUTLINE: Classic, slightly fuller shortboard outline up front, with the main feature being a slight hip at the side fin mark. This creates a straighter rail down towards the tail for driving speed, and a slightly wider rounded squaretail pod compliments the hip for fast yet predictable turns.
ROCKER: Fast medium entry through to a smooth/flat exit, the focus for this model being speed with just the right amount of curve to perform smooth adjustments between turns.
CONTOURS: (Derived from the much loved Peri Peri model), single concave through the nose into a double concave between the feet with blended vee exiting the tail. This combo creates great speed from the take-off, super forgiving rail-to-rail transitions, and a feeling of control as you finish your turns.
PERFORMANCE: There are two standout attributes with this model. Firstly, the flatter tail rocker with exit vee promotes continual speed and forgiving rail transitions. And secondly, the hip in the outline makes it super drivey and responsive off the back foot. All together the Hot Knife will hold its speed well and respond with a feeling of predictability and control making it a pleasure to ride in general day-to-day conditions. Fin Recommendations: FCS II Carver (To compliment this model and surfers pushing harder and faster they need a fin with higher sweep/rake).

About Twin Tech Construction:
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.
About Chilli Surfboards:
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.
