Chi Chi PU - 2024



New Zealand Customers - Due September 2024
USA Customers - Due September 2024


Gang, we have a shortboard! The Salt Gypsy Chi Chi aims to improve your wave count and has a huge range. With a rocker toned board for a shortboard, we have dropped the volume per size ratio so it fits within our mandate to suit women’s frames better.

It’s a fast board that offers plenty of flow and is the perfect choice for maximising your wave count even when the conditions aren’t perfect. 

Ideally suited for intermediate to advanced level surfers in a range of conditions and backyard lineups.

The Chi Chi is our newest addition to our SG quiver and we couldn't be more stoked.

This board is fast from the second you get to your feet and super easy to turn. Think summer beach breaks or soft point waves where you need a board with enough foam and buoyancy to get you going, but don’t want to restrict how you want to perform on a wave.

Designed to satisfy a wide range of abilities and surf conditions, from beach breaks to points and reefs.

The Salt Gypsy Chi Chi shortboard targets women and girls moving down in size from a mid-length or longboard and wanting to really whet their appetite for punchier, bigger surf on a shorter board and really get their wave count up.

Polyester or PU construction uses traditional materials and laminating techniques to produce a strong, reliable surfboard with high-quality finishes. All polyester boards are CNC milled from the shapers files and laminated by hand using quality components such as Hexcel fiberglass, Silmar resin and Bennett foam.

For years traditional polyester boards have been at the forefront of performance surfing. These boards feature a progressive flex pattern controlled by a high-grade timber stringer and feel very reliable under your feet. Polyester construction will perform in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.

You can find out more about GSI’s surfboard construction on the surfboard construction page.

Love love love this new shortboard! A little extra volume helped me with a slight lack in paddle fitness on a recent surf trip in the tropics and helped keep my wave count up. I found it really responsive, fast to generate speed down the line and held rails well when I was trying to lean into my turns. In my peak surf fitness years ago I rode 5'3 toothpicks and for this trip I was on the 5'8 Chi Chi in some fun overhead swell. Am approx 63kgs, 173cm tall, experienced surfer for over 25 years (now a working mum in her 40s with not as much surf time). I love it and am keen to give the 5'6 or 5'4 lengths a go in the future.
