What the Firewire site says about the Chubby Chedda:
‘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 best described as a ‘performance-hybrid’, and should be ridden at least two inches shorter than your standard high performance short board. And if push comes to shove, the design will hold its own in overhead surf as well.’
What people are saying about it:
“Awesome all rounder. Easy to generate speed and turns perfectly. I find myself making moves that I previously wouldn’t have attempted. Great paddlers too.” – user Joe in the tube on Surf Ride
“This board was just a ton of fun and caught everything…user-friendly, fast, maneuverable, and it produces a ton of whip! Be prepared to toss more spray than ever before!!!” – Daily Stoke
“Fantastic board for the everyday surfer. A great combination of tight turns, fast on the flat, easy to pop and paddles like a dream.” – user Conrad on Cleanline Surf
“The Chubby Chedda is fast stubby shortboard which is designed to marry speed and response in a range of conditions. A true one board quiver, the Chedda will give you the speed needed to fly through flat sections and holds it’s own in barreling overhead surf.” – Secret Spot
