After numerous custom orders, Chilli is now offering the Mid Strength in a smaller size range from 6'4 down to 5'10. Like the Mid Strength, the paddling power of the Middy is unmatched with plenty of volume under your chest. The more compact length of the Middy now allows an even more heighten level of performance. Stand on the tail and the Middy turns on a dime, shift your weight forward and you'll be flying down the line!
James (Chilli) designed this surfboard over the summer of 2018/19 whilst he had a niggling knee injury and couldn't surf to his full ability on his standard shortboard. "I just wanted something that paddled easy, catches waves and surfed without too much effort", so the Mid Strength was created. Essentially, the Middy is a shorter version of the Mid Strength, a performance all-rounder that should be a consideration for anyone who can competently stand and navigate along a wave.
OUTLINE: Outline has a fullish nose to help with paddling. This flows down to an accentuated curve between your feet and into the back third of the board where the business gets done. The soft round tail intentionally creates a very forgiving and smooth turning arc for a longer board.
ROCKER: Turning and holding a rail on a bigger board must feel effortless, so Chilli combined a lower entry with a medium exit rocker out the tail. The aim here was to create a fast paddler that would pick up waves with minimal effort and still feel reactive on the turns.
CONTOURS: Slight single concave for speed up the front blending to a deep single/double concave through the side fins to loosen it up under the rear foot. An effortless combination in this model that's sensibly related to a mid strength beer; all the fun with half the effort!
PERFORMANCE: Getting a little older, maybe not as fit, or your surf time has simply decreased? Sometimes you just need the board to do the work for you. The Middy is made to paddle and catch waves easy in the top end, and once up and riding; trim, pivot and turn super easy with a little bit of release when needed. The curvy outline and rocker combo helps the board not feel long and straight, so it actually surfs like a much shorter board. Ride it, and guaranteed youll be converted.
Fin Recommendations: Thruster FCS II Accelerator; Quad FCS II Accelerator Sides + Performer Quad Rears. These all-round templates with a little extra area work perfectly for the bigger crew on this board.
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 stringerless EPS blank 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 fin plug patches. Deck: 1 x layer of 4oz fiberglass, 1 x layer of 4oz biaxial cloth, Twin Carbon tape plus a V-Tail patch. ® Chilli Surfboards
