We consider the Chew Toy to be the ideal “step-up groveler or hybrid”, as it will handle a much broader range of waves and conditions than most other boards in those categories. Derived from our long time favorite “Piranha”, The Chew Toy features a few modern tweaks to improve the performance and versatility. The deck configuration allows us to pack in some additional liters for better paddling proficiency, and the tighter tail template and additional rocker when compared to traditional grovelers improves the performance. Key to The Chew Toy’s improved performance is the alternative materials and construction; the use of an EPS core, epoxy glassing, carbon and its rail architecture gives the board progressive flex thru the nose and tail while maximizing torsional flex. This multi-plane flexing creates a positive lively feel that sets it apart from anything else.
