The Popper is the brainchild of James (Chilli) wanting to create the most user friendly, fun, and easy to ride Twin Fin (or 2 + 1) on the market. Based on a design Chilli has made for himself over the years, as the name suggests, the Popper is bound to spice up your summer! Perfect for a beginner to intermediate surfer looking to downsize or an advanced surfer reluctant to go longer, the Popper offers all the wave catching attributes of a much longer board, packed into a short, flat and forgiving speed machine!
Rocker: A flat entry and flat exit can only mean 1 thing: SPEED. The flattened rocker provides a big generous sweet spot that's complimented by the bottom contours.
Bottom Contour: Relatively flat top 1/3 of the board, into a double concave through the middle. The bottom 1/3 features a deeper double concave/vee bottom allowing for easy rail-to-rail transition.
Outline: The outline is wide, rounded and forgiving. This larger surface area and contact with the wave face provides stability and increased flow when riding, two attributes that any surfer will love. The round tail and twin fin combination allows the board to both pivot in the pocket and glide over a flatter wave face with ease.
Fin Recommendation FCS 2: MR or Power Twin: Both can be used with the smaller rear stabiliser; these two templates are more 'upright' giving you pivot and performance. Modern Keel: Will provide increased down the line drive. Great option for point breaks, no need for a stabiliser.
FUTURES: This template is an 'upright' fin giving you a pivot/performance feel. Rob Machado: Can be used with or without the smaller rear stabiliser; this fin template is also more 'upright' giving you a pivot/performance feel. K2: Will provide increased down the line drive. Great option for point breaks, no need for a stabiliser.
