The Volume II Twin Tech is Chilli's all-round shortboard in EPS/EPOXY construction. Twin Tech is light, strong and very fast channelling that 'new board' feeling every time you surf.
James has designed countless boards for WQS surfers over the years, where surfing at the highest level in below average wave conditions is the aim of the game! This is where the Volume II originated.
Over time, James ever so slightly modified the Spawn, the performance board preferred by the team at the time. He added an even layer of volume throughout, slightly increased the curve and flattened the rocker. The result: a trusted, fast, no frills all round shortboard that excels in 1-4 foot conditions.
CONTOUR: A single concave starting 12 cm down from the nose and runs down to just above the side fins. It then has a slight double concave (allowing for the perfect amount of release) through the side fins then back to a single exit through the tail.
ROCKER: A normal entry through to a flat exit allowing for maximum speed. The volume holds throughout the board with plenty under the chest for optimal paddle power if the conditions are weaker. A medium to slightly lower rail provides a forgiving ride, but with enough hold so you can trust it in more critical sections on the wave.
We recommend riding the Volume II anywhere from 1 to 2 inches below your more performance orientated shortboard.

TWIN TECH - 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. Twin Tech consists 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.
