Firewire FST Chubby Chedda 5' 8"
Designer / Shaper |
Bottom Contours |
Fin Setup |
Designed by Luke Short, the Chubby Chedda is a refined version of the original Chubby Checker, a favorite of many including Julian Wilson when he’s free surfing or pushing it in expression sessions.
Luke widened the outline slightly while adding a subtle hip behind the front fins, adding more whip through turns. The concaves are also deeper, creating more ‘get up and go’, and the tail rocker has been accentuated for the perfect blend of speed and responsiveness.
The Chubby Chedda is a performance-hybrid, and should be ridden at least two inches shorter than your standard high performance shortboard. And if push comes to shove, the design will hold its own in overhead surf as well.
