This is a board for everyone and anyone. It can be used as a step down from a mini-mal to transition to more performance shortboards or conversely it can be used as a performance shortboard itself! The relaxed rocker, width, and thickness through the chest allows this thing to paddle into any lump that comes through and maintain any inkling of speed you've got through flat and fat sections. However, shift your back foot further towards the tail and the board becomes a lot more responsive than you would initially think! Thanks to a rounded tail and sharp rails this board provides good manoeuvrability and hold through turns. 

With five fins plugs you've got the option to really change up your style when you need too. A classic thruster will please the most performance oriented of surfers, whereas those speed demons out there can chuck in a quad or twinny plus one.

The Chilli Bean is built for any surfer who understands that if you’re not afraid of slightly more foam you can go shorter than you’d imagined possible. More waves and more control will make anyone a better surfer.

This board is designed to absolutely maximise the fun to be had in average, everyday surf by catching almost as many waves as a longboard, gliding over the flat sections whilst being super responsive under the feet. With its curvaceous outline, rounded tail and more relaxed rockers the Chilli Bean loves to cruise, carve and particularly set-up as a quad will fly down the line with just a little encouragement. In terms of design this board is essentially a bigger Reload for intermediate surfers or surfers of a bigger build. With single to double concaves, relaxed entry and exit rockers, and foam distributed to give the best balance between float and control, the Chilli Bean is ideal as a first shortboard, or an intermediates all-rounder. It really is unrivalled.

ESE Technology:

We are using ?Superfused EPS Foam? from US Blanks. It has a tighter fusion and cell structure due to the moulding process of the blank, this means the blank takes less resin and offers a tighter flex pattern than the standard EPS blanks available on the market. If you werent already aware, standard EPS foam has a tighter flex than standard construction boards, so Superfused blanks are a massive step up in that respect. These blanks are around 25% lighter than standard blanks, so with the added flex properties you can see where the added performance comes from when riding the board.
