I'm very very pleased with this board. I ordered the 6ft6 as a step down from my 7ft6 mini mal and have had great fun with it so far. It's easy to paddle and catch waves with whilst also being pretty stable. A Great board if your a novice at the stage where you're thinking about going shorter.”

The Chilli Bean is built for any surfer who understands that if you're not afraid of slightly more foam you can go shorter than you'd imagined possible.

This board is designed to absolutely maximize the fun to be had in average, everyday surf by catching almost as many waves as a longboard, gliding over the flat sections and ridden short being super responsive under the feet.

Fourth have used traditional polyurethane cores and polyester resin for the most responsive flex possible.

With it's curvaceous outline, rounded pin tail and flat rocker the Chilli Bean loves to cruise, carve and particularly set-up as a quad will fly down the line with just a little encouragement...

 The perfect board for... 
It's a blast for the experienced surfer ridden up to 8 inches shorter than your normal board and making something of waves you'd otherwise not bother with - alternatively it's a fantastic board for intermediate surfers looking to step straight from a first board to something short, manoeuvrable and responsive.

 Fin Setup 
The board has plugs for 5 Futures fins so it can be run as a quad or thruster

It comes complete with a set of three Futures fins to run it as a thruster, and 2 smaller side fins to complete the Quad set-up.

Dimensions & Fin set-up:

Length Width Thickness Volume/litres Fins
5ft6 20" 2 5/8" 28 Futures x 5
5ft9 20 1/2" 2 1/2" 32 Futures x 5
6ft0 21" 2.55" 36 Futures x 5
6ft3 21.5" 2.75" 38 Futures x 5
6ft6 22" 2 13/16" 43 Futures x 5
6ft9 22 3/8" 2 7/8" 49 Futures x 5

The five fins allow you to use the board as a thruster with the three larger fins or as a quad using the side fins from the larger set at the front and the smaller fins as the rear fins.

Construction:

Standard Poly construction, 2 layers of 4 oz cloth on the deck, one on the bottom.

  • Hello, are the fins included in they price? Truster? Denis

    Yes, you get 5 fins with the board, so you can use 3 of them as a thruster set-up, or the front two fins of the thruster with two trailing fins as a quad set-up.

  • Would it possible to get this board with futures fin boxes?

    I am afraid that we cannot take custom orders on Fourth Chilli Beans, they are all supplied with FCS fin boxes

  • This board is mint! So happy with it :)) Have been out a couple of times in semi-decent conditions and it is exactly what I want right now. I have it set up as a Quad and it flies, with the bit of volume giving you a real headstart out of the blocks. Love the simple graphics! The amount of attention this board got from other surfers this weekend was cracked. Show-stopper! Love itttt!

  • Got my chilli bean a few weeks ago, first impressions, really nice board, slightly more wide towards the front than it looks in the picture here, bit of a retro fishy nose if that makes sense! From what I can tell the shaping, glassing, plug placement etc all seem to be of really high quality and my bean came with a black outline instead of the blue shown here, I love the look of it. Have only had the opportunity to use it in beyond slop conditions so far, but forecast are good for the next while so will hopefully get to try her out properly. From the use I have gotten out of it, it paddles and floats me (11 stone) real easy and picks up waves hella easy. Was bought for those days when my 6'6 hooded villian would be just too much work to catch waves on and it seems perfect for the job. Its a fast board, guess its all the volume under your front foot but it can race around crumbling sections, think this will really help my backside surfing where I've a bad habbit of losing all speed and stalling on my other board.Definitely a great intermediates board or fantastic fun board for the smaller sloppier days. Turns are a different kettle of fish to standard thrusters, hard to get used to all the volume at first but it lends itself to nice carves and since I'm pretty intermediate in my abilities I think it'll be an easy board to progress on. Can't wait to try out the quad set-up. Shipping to Ireland was fast and no hassles and board was really well packed, also I'd a query about the board before i purchased and the guys in the shop emailed me back within an hour which was fantastic.all in all highly recommended.boom.

  • Without a doubt the best board ive had in years. It not only rides well in the mushy/average waves we get but also impresses in good clean meaty swell. 10/10 for versatility. Rode this board in 2ft crossshore beach waves and 6ft reef breaks and its amazing, stable, responsive, floaty, loose and super fast as a quad. 'Fourth' have got this board perfect in my opinion. The glass job and finish on it are brilliant with simple graphics looks brilliant. Im not using any other boards right now cos i dont have to. Wish i'd just bought this sooner and im totally convertered to the quad. 10/10

  • Having only ever hired boards and been surfing a 7'2 NSP it felt like a massive gamble buying the 6'6 Chilli Bean but the gamble has definately paid off. It is easier to paddle (I'm 5'8 and 11 and half stone), easier to get out through the waves and once up the ride is amazing! The only thing i've found is that getting up needs to be that little bit quicker but I'd definately recommedn it for someone coming down from a smaller mini mal.

  • this board is without a doubt the best board ive ridden. ive taken this out twice in very mediocre 2ft waves, that i wouldnt normally bother with, and came out feeling ive just surfed 4ft perfection! it paddles and catches waves like a longboard, it is incredibly fast with the quad set up and races round flat sections especially on my backside. very responsive on the front foot and just damn good fun to ride! cant wait to take it out in better surf! 10/10.

  • Catches waves really easilly for such a small board (I got the 5'6"). Set up as a quad I found that I could beat sections that I wouldn't have on my normal shortboard. I found it a bit unstable when overhead with the quad setup however when I changed it to a thruster it went really well. It has completely changed my perception of my normal 6'3" shortboard!

  • Got this for my Birthday but haven't surfed the 'Bean yet, but first impressions are awesome. The board arrived with a small ding (hardly visible, only noticed it when admiring the rails) but this was hardly worth getting a replacement, some spare PhixDoctor fixed it right up. The glassing is good quality, along with the coloured rails and underlayed logos. Looking forward to taking it down to get some action.

  • Dings real easy, only had it out for two short sessions and there's loads of small pressure dings from knees and heals, but I guess that's probably my bad (tail pad is a must), my current board is epoxy and I've managed to pressure ding that too so...Nicely glassed, though a couple small imperfections. Floats and paddles well, big step down for me (6'11 -> 6'3 ) so still finding the balance point to get into waves so can't comment on its ride performance.

  • Stepping down from a 7'2 minimal after a couple of years of slow improvement, this board was perfect. Just took it round Indo for 6 weeks and it coped in all types of waves - from small mushy beachie to 3-5 ft fast jacking reefbreaks. With the volume it seems to paddle into anything, but then it feels responsive and manoeuvrable as well. Great board. Highly recommend.

  • Awesome surfboard! used this on a week long roadtrip in Cornwall in June, surfed in 2-3ft mush and 4ft solid clean waves and performs brilliantly, It's my first shortboard and the transition has been so much easier than I thought. As expected slightly harder to paddle into waves than a minimal, however as I got used to it I found that going for waves a bit later than normal was easier and required less paddling, so much easier to drop in on a steeper wave face than on my minimal, and so responsive. On the 2nd time out I was carvign and pumping up and down the wave face, great progression board!

  • This board is legit! Great for riders stepping down from bigger boards, a tone of foam which means it's stable enough and feels great underfoot. Experienced riders comment saying the shape and the feel to the board is amazing, they all want a go! However, the only down side to the board is that it has a really light glassing which means it's prone to damage. The first surf I took a chunk out of the nose!

  • After two days of surfing I broke the board on a beach break with no rocks. The board was pierced and inside I could see a lack of foam. Big design issue. Magicseaweed didn't want to heard anything about it and told me I heard a rock : easy way.... Not satisfied from the board and the shop.

  • I went for the 6ft Chilli Bean. I'm 80kg and I am a very average but enthusiastic surfer and only get in the water on occasional weekends and holidays. I have been using a 6ft 6in thruster with width 19 1/2 x 2 5/8 which has traditional shape - looking at other sizes / shapes in MSW website l'ld guess approx 34 litres. It's quite old though which may make it less floaty. The website spec says the 6ft CB is 36litres. It's much harder to duck dive but for its size it's very easy to paddle. I've only used it once so far - an offshore and dumping shorebreak day. It is surprisingly stable even in these small but fast and steep waves.

  • Fantastic board!!! I´m really excited with my new board!!! Thank you Chili and MSW!!! I´m a heavy and late surfer, only started surfing with more than 30 years and 90 kg..., after a few years enjoying long board (still love it), I´m now trying to reduce size and volume on boards, and after 2 years and 3 different boards I finally find one that really fits what I was looking for. With this magic 6´´9 board I can get in waves earlier than with my actual boards, almost like a long board, it really as more volume in the nose and less in the tail, combined with a flat rocker allowing me to better chose a good line for each different wave and specially avoid getting too tired paddling to waves and not getting it or just getting it late to see it closing on my eyes. Another great advantage for me on this equipment is the rounded pin tail, in just a week surfing with the new board I was able to drop in bigger waves, like in long board, without going down on the face and again increase my fatigue, the board sticks to the wall and holds, it really flies allowing me to turn when the wave ask for it! Until now only used quad fins and probably for the moment will not change it as I´m loving the speed and my evolution! For the first time I´m really having fun and improving my surf on a board of this size. For the last 2 years I´ve ended my surf session many times with only one or two good waves. In recent months I have even opted often for the long board, just to assure some fun... Now I´m getting fun and there's room to improvement on my surfing! The board arrived at my office in Portugal in 3 days without a single damage, great service also, really appreciate your effort! Thank you for helping me with your work, I hope my words can help other improving their surf.

  • Absolutely love this board I only managed to test it on 2-3 ft waves and no problem at all they eventually became mush and it still rode well. 2nd time got some 4-5 clean waves it rides like a mal but turns twice as quick that quick I shot over the top on the first wave.Highly recommend this board very light and very quick set up on quad fins.

Has a lot of volume very wide felt like I could of gone down to a 6"3 I have only tried from 2 to 4 foot easy to catch small waves but haven't tried it any decent size surf yet!

  • I normally ride a 9'1" but bought this to go travelling with (size is within BA's carry restrictions). It paddles like a dream and rides like a magic carpet. It genuinely does allow you to go from long board to short board in a few days! A really great board.

  • This board is amazing, I could go on for ages about how great it is but I won't. Just get one and see for yourself, so much buoyancy and well easy 2 ride but super responsive at the same time. Just buy one

  • First had the 6'6" but it came in with damage and had none left in stock, so they wanted to pay the repair but i got a 6'9" instead and it is a super fun board! thanks so much for the customers service magicseaweed you guys rock!

  • The board is great!!! Unfortunately it arrived with a little ding at the nose (I guess a transport damage although it was properly wrapped and protected.) But I was too lazy to send it back so I repared it quickly myself.

  • The board arrived with some damage and was not finished to my expectations. I have not ridden it yet.

  • A great board coming down from a mal, quite a lot more foam than looks in the pictures, I could have gone down a size, but still a great board. Riding it as a quad, fits in van and car so always ready to get out.

  • fun board would maybe just buy an escape board next time as the forth board seems quite brittle.

  • This is an absolute beauty. I have been surfing on both minimals and shortboards. The chilli is something in between. It has the agility of a shortboard with the buoyancy of a minimal. Really easy to get waves on this, take off and glide. I'm sure you can throw in a few thrashers but I'm not for that...Ah! And it works equally well on east and west coasts ;) go buy one.

  • This board rocks! First time I used it was in 2 foot set up as a Thruster and it was OK but the next time I went out I changed the fin set up to a quad after advice from a mate and it came alive. He told me have it set as a Thruster in 6ft plus surf which is what I have done since and I now love this board.

  • Lovely board! Only been surfing a year on an 8ft Mal, bought the 6'9" Chilli and wished that I'd started on it a year ago. Superb fun ride in all conditions, quick and responsive. Possibly should have gone shorter, but no regrets at all.

  • Could probably have gone a size shorter than 6,3 but the learning curve would be steeper. Big guy and loving the board. Dropped in on a guy and got his fins through my board the other day though. Huge ding repair needed:(

  • Super happy with this board. Ordered the 6'6 and it absolutely rips. Surfed it from kneehigh dutch slop to headhigh walls. Very easy to catch waves and really easy to turn. Absolutely flies in bigger waves. Think I set a speedrecord yesterday. Looks really nice and I like the Fourth branded FCS fins. Love it like a fat kid love pie!

  • Bit of a step down from a beginner board for me. However, if half the battle is catching waves, then I'm halfway closer to surfing how I want! This baby catches waves so easily. Had it out in 2-5ft and caught plenty... Just need to get used to the difference in balance and responsiveness and I'll be flying down the line in no time. The Chilli Bean is great, I'm the weak link!

  • Love this board...originally had the 6'9" and have now downsized to the 6'0...a great all round board...it has really helped me progress and I finally have a board that fits in my car!!

  • Love this board! Awesome step down from a mini mal. Set it up as a quad and it literally flies! Looks great too, lots of people noticed it and were asking questions. Happiest purchase of the year for me for sure!

  • Got the 6'3 as a step down from my 7'10 mini mal. Great surfboard, plenty of buoyancy, easy to catch waves and flies once your on them, even on 3ft sloppy beachies.

  • Got a lot of help for MSW on what board to choose and what size and so on. That really meant a lot in finding the right board. Delivery across Europe was super fast and I'm stoked to have this new stick added to my quiver.

  • Great customer service from these guys, they helped me out with a problem had with payment by letting me pay half in vouchers and the other using a debit card, so yeah that was a plus. Aside from that it arrived to Bilbao from England in two or three days, with only a slight pressure ding on the bottom, hardly worth worrying about. Performance wise the board is so much fun, I was a little worried about it being so short 5, 9, I am 6ft but to be fair it has been so easy to make the transion and so much fun, I definatly recommend this board.

  • I'm 5ft 10" 12st 2lbs, I regard myself as intermediate level and went for the 6ft 6" after taking advice from a very helpful chap at MSW. Coming from a rather tired 7ft 3" Bic mini mal this is a totally different ball game. The board looks absolutely awesome, it's a great looking board. I've found that it struggles in small messy conditions although this might just be down to me as much as the board. Anything over 3ft and clean and it comes alive, really fast board, light, very responsive. I'm not really good enough or experienced enough to give a really in depth review but from a intermediate surfer who's looking for a step up from a mini mal I'd say go for one of these, I absolutely love it.

  • Why did they put the paint on the outside of the board so it looks scruffy after a few sessions ... I love the Chilli Bean surf like a dream BUT shame about the paint job

  • A great board -I've got the 6'3" (My normal shortboard is 6'5"). I've been using a friend's 6'10" fat boy flyer (Fish tail) for a while or a 6"10" magic carpet (I'm not a fan of single fins :( ) and wanted something a bit more manoeuvrable. This board catches works well in everything except the tiniest slop (I live in the North east). It is super fast and I find that I can make sections I never could on other boards plus get up and get riding quickly. Very pleased with it, it's my go-to board now for anything but bigger, cleaner surf.
