Product Details


Chilli Rarest Bird Twin Tech Surfboard

Back in 2015 we 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.

OUTLINE: The wide point is pushed further forward than most boards to create more curve under the chest and front foot for ease of paddling and speed in dead sections. The classic round tail traverses easily from beach to reef and point waves while producing a feeling of sturdiness under your back foot.

ROCKER: Medium entry and a fast exit provides, what we feel, is the perfect balance of speed and flow for surfers wanting a board that will react quickly and fulfil their expectations as they execute turns on a wave. I.e. This board does the work for you!

CONTOURS: The single to double concave is a very effective combination that compliments the outline and rocker and gives you a fast and responsive board in conditions that are not only sub-par but have more power and size.

PERFORMANCE: Designed to be ridden 1 inch shorter than your typical shorty, the Rarest Bird can be classified as a one board ‘take anywhere’ quiver. It has all the attributes of a performance board; speed, responsiveness and control, but the main difference is the extra buoyancy and floatation that makes it more forgiving and usable for the everyday surfer. For the intermediates, this is a great board to take your surfing to the next step without loosing paddle power or speed. Advanced surfers can take it around the world and feel comfortable in any conditions on offer.

Fin Recommendations: Thruster – FCS II Performer, Quad – FCS II Accelerator Sides + Performer Quad Rears. These ‘all-round’ fin options suit the rounded narrower tail and produce a neutral feel that won’t discriminate against anyone.

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.
