T. Patterson Chopped Clam Review


What the T. Patterson site says about the Chopped Clam:

‘The chopped clam takes the old clam board and just made it work in even smaller junkier surf. This design has a single concave bottom for speed, low entry rocker and low tail rocker. Medium full rails giving you that traditional performance feel. The over all outline is pretty full and the chop tail allows for a wider tail block giving you that easy release when you really need it. The tail allows for some pretty tricky snappy maneuvers even when the waves are small and junk its still easy to make the most out of a wave with this board. Ride this board just a little shorter than your regular shorty.’

What people are saying about it:

“The Chopped Clam takes the Clam model and literally chops the tail. This gives you a little more surface area under the back foot for those slightly smaller or mushier days. Still holding true to the original Clam model with single concave, wider outline, low rocker and fuller rails, keeping you fast and loose with a skatey feel.

The Chopped Clam loves the smaller surf, anywhere from ankle to chest or head high. The wider square tail keeps you floating through on those mushier days and gives you a nice release to really skate the board around.” – Boardcave
