In this episode I review the Star Chip by Roberts Surfboards. Roberts shapes me two stock 5’5” boards. One board is PU/Poly and the other board is a special EPS construction he calls RFT TDD. Both boards go great in 2-5’ surf using the large Futures Roberts Generation Thruster fin set up.

The Star Chip model is fast and surfs very well in the pocket as a Thruster and I highly recommend this board for intermediate to advanced surfers.

I also rode both boards with a new fin set up that Roberts calls a Twonzer. He sent me a set of medium and large to see what worked best for me. After testing both fin sizes the large worked best for me as the depth of the fins helped stabilize the board and offered more traction in my turns.
