  • Chubby vs Mini Driver vs Unibrow

    Hi every body,
    Theses 3 surfs looks to have same waves range and almost same dimension in some size.
    What make them different?
    CC more front footer and high performance ?, Unibrow more backfoot and soft?, MD more for bigger waves or hollow surf?
    If you have some infos, advise, it could be really helpfull? If you already try them and get some caracteristic, it would be awesome.
    Tx

    That's how I'd separate the 3 of them. They'd all overlap a lot and work in similar conditions though. I'd say Mini Driver for punchy barrels and long walls, CC for small to medium sized, pockety little bowls and the UB for more a more open faces, carvey style. All three will do it all but I think that's where each but subtlety excel.

      Tx for the answer.
      I am living in Bali. I do not surf all spot but specifics one (favorites)
      Do you think i can combine a CC for the beach break (Canggu, Kuta...) and the MD for the more barreling days (Serangan, Nusa Dua, Impossible).
      Or the Unibrow will do all as well??

    I reckon the MD and CC would make a real fun quiver for good quality medium sized waves. Like you say, CC for performance waves and the MD for the more hollow or open walled waves.

      tx for the answer. i face some difficulties to place the unibrow in the middle of that? I am more front footer.
      It looks to be a soft all around back foot board. Any extra comment to compare with CC and MD?
      Tx

    I'd look at the UB to be the all rounder that will cover that whole area but the CC and MD will probably excel a little more in the areas that they are designed to specialise in.
    I don't have any experience riding the UB so I'd have a read through the threads where guys who are riding them are reviewing them. The Timmy Reyes videos show how versatile the board is but Timmy is an exceptional surfer!

      yes Timmy is a really really good surfer, but on video, his board looks too big for him, i think just because there is a lot of volume on the back foot and not because of the lenght itself.
      But i think the same as you said as well for theses boards, after riding the other posts.
      Nice to be able to talk and clear some point or feeling with others. Tx a lot for your help, it is really helpfull!!

    Phill/Malawak007, I asked Timmy on Instagram about the UB. He said prior to it's release his favorite board was the spitfire, but after riding the UB he said it is his new go to board because it is more versatile and stable in bigger surf.

    ALOHA!!

      I can't speak for the UB or MD but the CC is one incredible board from 2 to 5ft... best board i've ever owned.

        hawai-boi, tx for info.

        your 5 ft waves are hollow?fast?
        5ft wave for me is 1.5 overhead, what is it for you?
        Tx to let me know as i rty to understand the limit of the CC

      i second phil.ct.sa! but cant speak for the UB or MD either... i cant get enough of my CC tho! it gets into suprosingly small waves with the pretty flat nose but give it some back foot boogie and it comes alive with the whippy little tail, when its bigger and hollower you just get on the tail and use that rocker to get your nose up... im sure they are all sick boards tho... i have ridden mine in solid well overhead with no worries, dont get a chance to surf much bigger all that often... its the perfect board for me over winter on the GC and i know il still get use out of it in the summer...

        I also love my CC as an all-around great shortboard. Phil and Nelson are spot on. It holds well in head high surf and is also super fun in 3-4ft. waves.

          Malawak007 I surf it in horribly soft weak waves with my longboard buddies as well as some hollow reefs on the peninsula here in SA - the boards outline, rocker and volume distribution accommodate for that (Luke Short is no monkey), just when surf is 4 to 5 foot range and more water is moving around, i feel like i start to lose control over Chubbs :) Each to their own, apparently it was Julian Wilsons choice of the range and he would probably surf pipe on it :D . I haven't heard anybody who has one complain about it, which speaks for itself. Great board... now if i can only get my PNator issues sorted :(
