6'0" X 20 5/8" X 3"

 

45L

 

We would recommend this for beginner riders weighing 35-50kg, although if you are an experienced surfer up to 85-90kg, it should float you as well.

 

The 6'0 Chop Stick uses our Mini Mal Shape template. This is ideal for learning as they paddle fast, allowing you to catch more waves, and give you a little more time to get to your feet. Once your up and riding, the wider nose makes them extremely stable.

 

Compared to some of the other 6'0's on the market, there are 2 main features which we believe puts the Chopstick above the rest.

 

Thickness- it's a touch thinner than most of our competitors. Once you've a got a few weeks of surfing under your belt, this ensures your board doesn't hold you back once you start ripping! Also a bit easier to duckdive!

Rail Profiles - Due to our Moulded Core process, we have been able to refine our rails profiles (particularly at the front end), so they are nice and rounded, and not sharp and bulky. This help to stop you from nosediving & catching rails while riding, and similarly to the thickness, makes the board a bit more responsive through turns.

Why Softlite?

 

 

 

The boards are constructed using exclusive Softlite Moulds - This ensures that every board comes out identical with no imperfections. It also creates a harder shell of EPS foam on the outside making Softlite boards stiffer and more durable than competitors who use similar cores.

 

No screws on deck -No kicking your toes on screws, looks good and is easier to wax deck.

 

Bones and Shanks Fin System - Easy to install and remove fins. Compatible with other fin two tab systems, allowing you to change your fins to suit conditions or alter board performance

 

Bamboo Stringer System - This is re-enforced with fibreglass sheeting and epoxy resin to give the perfect amount of flex.

 

Colours may vary week to week.
