8'6 Potato Chip Description

Everyone loves potato chips, especially the 2016 Blue Planet Potato Chip. This board is very stable for it’s size, a major result of a 31″ wide board. Yet the thin rails and fast rocker line still make it the perfect choice for those less than perfect surfing days. The full nose and swallow tail give it a surprisingly good glide and the board develops lift and speed easily, even in smaller, mushier surf. Just the right amount of flex lets it pop and accelerate out of turns. This board makes every day on the water a fun day. At 131L volume, this board is recommended for expert riders up to 220 lbs or intermediate riders up to 190 lbs.
