A board Stab loves: Chilli’s Fader
Something for all occasions.
The changing of seasons can cause all sorts of chaos on a single man’s wardrobe. Is it too cold for that paper-thin flanno you rescued from the bargain bin at that struggling department store, or too hot for that second-hand baseball jacket with that peculiar smell? Life is too short to be worried by such nonsense. You need something to cover all scenarios, just like Chilli’s new Fader model, a Stab fave.
Shaped and designed by James Cheal, the Fader is the much-needed five fin board for your quiver. Fresh with a thumb tail (not too wide for bigger stuff and not too pinny for the smaller stuff), you’re gonna have hold and release whenever you please and with the fast uninterrupted outline, it’s all drive and speed for this one. As Nick Riley kindly demonstrates in the above clip, the Fader is very smooth, very fast and very fun. With a new rocker changing the sweet spot and allowing you to get up in the trickiest of take-offs, you’ll be bang on target for the whole wave. You can rock this one all year round and no one will call you out for failing to mix it up.
