CHOP OP is a squaretail smooth operator. Moving the widepoint back and chopping the tail makes for slightly snappier turning and more stability on the nose. A great board for all conditions no matter where you live. It domes from the stringer out to the rail allowing it to maintain volume through the centre but tapering toward the edge results in a soft low volume rail that trims fast through the water and is easily buried deep in a turn. You can surf this as hard as you like or take it out and trim along and enjoy the speed.
