The One Board Quiver
The one board quiver. As unlikely as it seems, we are here to show you that a single surfboard can have the versatility to perform well in pretty much all conditions. The following is a description of attributes that these boards possess, as well as a range of boards available on Boardcave that have been designed to be your perfect travel or everyday companions.
New to the scene, The Faded model by Chilli is their latest all round travel surfboard. Adapted from their popular Fader model the construction of this board features heavy duty glassing and more foam in the centre to increase paddle power. Tune in to the video below to see team rider Lee Wilson put it through its paces.
As you may know there’s 3 distict features that most shapers consider whilst making an “all-rounder” or “traveller” surfboard. The first is extra foam allocated in particular to the centre of the board. The added volume and thickness isn’t so much visible as it is noticeable when paddling into fatter sections.
The 2 last features vary on your decision when ordering a board and they are the tail shape and glassing. Generally speaking a rounded more pulled in tail is suited for hollow waves and is a popular choice for surfers travelling to destinations like Indo. In difference to the round tail a wider squash tail will have you making the most of your everyday home conditions. This type of tail shape is more popular for people who are going to experience a contrasting difference in swell conditions.
Lastly, it’s often a great idea to go with thicker glassing for a travel board especially if you only have room for one. The end purpose of stronger glassing is to make your board tougher and last longer against the stresses of travelling or the likely encounter of heavy waves.
