8' Taro Chip Description

Everyone loves the Fish and Chip Series.  These models are short and wide for excellent maneuverability in the pocket with good stability and ease of use. The 2017 8’0 Taro Chip offers just that. The thin rails and fast rocker line make them super fun in head high surf and will let you have a lot of fun on those less than perfect surfing days.  The full nose and swallow tail give it surprisingly good glide and the board develops lift and speed easily, even in sloppy surf.  Just the right amount of flex lets it pop and accelerate out of turns.  These boards make every day on the water a fun day. Recommended volume for intermediate to advanced riders is volume equal to 1.4 to 1.8 times the rider’s body weight in Kilograms.
