Chilli Grom Plus Surfboard Twin Tech
Say hello to our new little friend the new improved Grom Plus. This board has evolved from a mixture of Project Black models we have made over the years for our team riders Laura Enever, Matt King and more recently super mini grom Kobi Clements. We have basically squashed the nose and tail slightly together, widened the outline that brings us a board allowing you to ride 2-4 inches smaller then your current board. Having width under the front foot with a pulled in squash tail allows for a quick acceleration surfboard but with enough foam to get threw those dead sections. Having a more rounded outline (which is the main difference from our previous Grom model) means turning is a lot easier and can take your shredding to the next level also don’t be fooled it’s very user friendly for all ages and levels of surfing. We offer this with a free tail spray and carbon tail. Groms, come and get em.

About Chilli Surfboards:
The founding owner of Chilli Surfboards, Jamie Cheal, did his first top turn on a surfboard at the Gold Coast’s Greenmount aged 13, and he’s been surfing most days since.
In his late teens, Cheal moved to Sydney and started working at a surfboard factory, sanding and sweeping for next to nothing. In 1995, aged 22, Cheal shaped his first board. When he eventually took his creation to water he was more than a little surprised; It actually worked! “It was a total fluke,” he laughs. “I shaped about 20 more after that first one and they all went like wet towels.” Cheal knew it wouldn’t be a walk in the park, but with that first gem in mind, he persevered with shaping and not long afterwards, it started to pay off. Two years later, Chilli Surfboards was born in a small factory in Brookvale.
In the years that followed, demand for Cheal’s boards grew and each week he produced more. Soon, demand was high and some of Australia’s best surfers were riding Chilli Surfboards to victory. It wasn’t long before World Tour surfers started asking Cheal for boards, too. In 2004, the dearly missed Andy Irons rode Chilli Surfboards in his successful campaign to claim a third world title.
Cheal loves seeing the best surfers in the world ride his boards but would take just as much pride in seeing one under your feet. That’s why he’s worked hard to create a model range that has something for everyone. Check them out on this site and find your next dream board.
About Twin Tech Construction:
Twin Tech is Chilli’s latest construction consisting of a stringer-less 36 gram EPS core 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 FCS II plug patches. Deck: 1 x layer of 4oz fiberglass, 1 x layer of 220 gram biaxial cloth, Twin Carbon tape plus a V-Tail patch.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.
