A barge on the beach, a ripper on waves

Aerial Pro Wave

The Chiatta 5’8”K comes straight from our surfboards collection shapes. It’s simply a magic board. Allows you to catch waves even when waves are not there. Not only that, it allows you to get aerials with some extraordinary easiness and speed. The shape of the board with its wide outline and oversize tail area helps you to throw some spray in the smallest mushiest surf around. For this the board has been named “Chiatta”, that in Italian means “Barge”. When the waves get bigger riding the Chiatta 5’8” K is still a pleasure until overhead high, and in these conditions the board proves again to be magic in terms of speed, and looseness in the harder bottom turns. Whether you ride strapless or with straps, the Chiatta 5’8” K, is a must in your quiver and a great board to be used in light winds and small surf.
