CHAMELEON 5X

The name says it all. An extraordinary ability to adapt to all wind and wave situations: from onshore to side offshore, the Chameleon is always a top performer, partly thanks to it’s multi fins configuration options, which allow it to adapt not only to the condition, but also to the rider style as well.

Needless to say this complete all-around wave board range is still ranked on top of the most important international wave board test!

Conclusion – The Chameleon 2019 is still the perfect all-round wave board for those who want a unique single product without the stress of having to choose between multiple boards. Wherever you sail, from the Mediterranean to Hawaii, the Chameleon is the choice for you!

  • The now famous 5 slot fin box configuration, allows to set the board with Quad, Thruster or even Twin fins set up to adapt and satisfy riders in any kind of condition and wave style.
  • Short length concept: As with the KS Model, the Chameleon range is composed by compact shape boards in perfect balance with the footstraps, fin boxes and mast foot bringing a wider range of optimised performance.
  • Outline: The outline has a wide tail to support riders and their power combined with the footstraps being close to the tail. The result is to make the board “pivot’’ into tighter bottom turns and with more aggressive cut backs.
  • Rockerline: The most important technical mandate when designing an ‘all-round’ wave board. We wanted a fast rockerline for quick planing and acceleration without sacrificing manoeuvrability and wefinally achieved the perfect compromise through extensive testing and listening to the feedback of our customers.
  • Hull: A concave bottom fading into a double concave then a deep V towards the tail, we feel this is the perfect combination to have an easy but fast board with very good control in choppy wave faces.
  • Construction: A PVC double sandwich, with double thickness in the most stressed areas combined with a full carbon/Innegra + biax carbon ‘strong deck layup’ gives the boards the best compromise in terms of light weight, strength and durability.
  • Chameleon boards come with an MFC thruster set considered as the best wave all-round product on the market.
  • High-precision CAD/CAM CNC shape 15kg./m3 EPS core
  • Full PVC performance sandwich construction (3mm deck / 5mm bottom)
  • Double PVC sandwich in the most stressed areas for excellent compression strength
  • Full carbon/innegra deck + T700 biax carbon step area layup for maximum durability and strength, especially from landing hard jumps.
  • Full 160 S-glass bottom layup – for the correct flex during hard turns and hard landings
  • 6’’ Slot rear fin boxes + 4’’ Slot front fin boxes
  • Dual density footpads with shock absorbers
  • MFC TF thruster fin set
