The chopped clam takes the old clam board and just made it work in even smaller junkier surf. This design has a single concave bottom for speed, low entry rocker and low tail rocker. Medium full rails giving you that traditional performance feel. The over all outline is pretty full and the chop tail allows for a wider tail block giving you that easy release when you really need it. The tail allows for some pretty tricky snappy maneuvers even when the waves are small and junk its still easy to make the most out of a wave with this board. Ride this board just a little shorter than your regular shorty.
