JS INDUSTRIES 2020 HYFI MONSTABOX ROUND TAIL 

 

 

 

The new Monsta Box 2020 has more rocker and a narrower outline than the Blak Box 3, while it's fuller and flatter than the Monsta 2020. This gives it well blended curves to hide foam where you need it, without getting in the way of performing at a high level. A smooth single to double concave with a touch more depth creates lift in sub-par conditions, but allows you to remain in control when the waves turn on.

STACEY BLACK REAPER

 

 

OUTLINE: The Black Reaper outline is a fusion of two previous best sellers, the Black Bear & Reaper models. Combining the best elements of the two itʼs a performance driven outline with slightly extra width under the chest and front foot area for a more forgiving feel.

ENTRY ROCKER: The Black Reaper features a mild entry rocker for natural speed generation and maintainance. Get in quick and get going easily.

EXIT ROCKER: Long continuous tail rocker for phenomenal drive and speed control.

CONCAVE: Concentrated single concave under the front foot for instant speed and neutral feel with double concave for added drive through high speed turns and a flat late exit for explosive freedom through the lip.

TAIL: Squash tail for all-round high performance shredding.

FIN SETUP: The tried and tested master of fin setups, the THRUSTER.

CHILLI FADED 2.0

 

 

Designed with Jay Davies and Balaram Stack with both overseas travel
and pumping waves at home in mind, this board has been put through its
paces in places from Costa Rica to West Oz. While it’s primarily designed

for hollow tubes, don’t worry, it’ll glide like butter in good waves anywhere from 3 foot to 8-plus

CHANNEL ISLANDS HAPPY

 

 

Surf better. Be happy.

The Happy is a new performance shortboard model built to give surfers the freedom to easily go wherever their mind takes them. Low entry rocker and strategically placed forward volume allow the board to paddle well, get up to speed quickly, and perform extremely well in the tube.

JS MONSTA 2020 SQUASH TAIL

 

 

 

The rocker has been tweaked to provide a more generous sweet spot, which easily generates speed, allows you to control big turns, and balances release out of the lip. Compared to the Monsta 8, the nose has a touch more curve in the last few inches to prevent catching in critical parts of the wave.

The same magic tail rocker remains to fit into the conditions the Monsta 2020 is designed to thrive in – almost any conditions from chest high to double overhead plus.

 Overall, the Monsta 2020 prompts intuitive & fast surfing. It’s a huge milestone for JS, and now, it’s ready for the rest of the world to enjoy anywhere, anytime.

SLATER DESIGNS HOUDINI

 

 

Making it easy to disappear and reappear in Hawaiian tubes, the Houdini is Kelly Slaters new magic act for Hawaiian waves, or other locations, where controlled lines through racy barrels are a must.

The bottom contour consists of a single to double with slight vee, in spite of its step-up frame, the Houdini has incredible acceleration and manoeuvrability.

The Houdini model sticks with Kelly’s previously proven formula for his personal step-ups: hiding volume under his chest for better paddling, but maintaining a tapered rail for sensitivity.

JS INDUSTRIES RAGING BULL

 

 

The Raging Bull HYFI is built for better surf and proves to be a versatile travel board. Designed with the help of legend 'Occy', the worlds next best user-friendly high-performance board is here.

The Raging Bull is an incredibly forgiving, versatile travel board that will be your go-to for better days at home and any time you’re lucky enough to be away chasing proper waves. It has all of the elements Occ wanted to make performance surfing easy. User-friendly, but with the ability to handle heavier conditions and powerful surfers. Compared with our other models built for quality surf, there’s a lot of differences here. A fuller nose with the wide point and extra thickness pushed forward combine with a flatter entry rocker to make it paddle fast and get into waves early, and then while surfing, generate and hold all of that extra speed.

A pulled-in tail gives you control for turns and barrels in more critical conditions, while a touch more curve in the exit rocker adds manoeuvrability and release out of the lip. Moderate single concave starts under front foot, moving to double just before the fins to provide lift and more intuitive rail-to-rail transitions. Then finally, there’s Occ’s favourite part – as he calls it, the “Raging Bull thickness”. Essentially, this refers to JS maintaining a strategically generous distribution of volume throughout the board that goes hand in hand with thicker stock dimensions. This is the key to more paddle power, gliding over flat sections, and to again quote Occ, “lets you leave it on rail forever.”

The Raging Bull makes your best surfing easy from home to hard core surf trips, and it’s an easy decision to make if you’re only going to have one go-to board with you. As we saw from Occy at Bells, that’s all it takes to make the fire burn brighter than ever. The Raging Bull is back.

FIREWIRE SEASIDE & BEYOND 

 

  • Ability: Beginner - Expert
  • Bottom Contours: Single / Double
  • Rails: Medium
  • Ideal Wave Size: 1-5ft

"I’ve really been wanting to play around with some longer fishy kind of boards for a while now… Ever since I spent some time with skip frye and he showed me some of his fishes in the 7 foot range It’s been on my mind.  I first stretched out the GO FISH and made a 7 footer.  It worked great and really got my mind spinning.  Then I made a 7’0 seaside and it became one of my favorite boards in my quiver.  I rode it in everything.  Super small days, bigger days and everything in between.  It’s become a board that I will take with me everywhere I go. 

It glides.  It turns on a dime and most importantly… it puts a smile on my face"

DHD DX1 PHASE 3 

 

The PHASE 3 has been a year in the works and is back to being a top favourite amongst the DHD team.

This model has a little extra width through the nose and tail which has added a touch more volume through the chest.

To keep the boards performance DH has kept the rails low especially through the tail of the board. This along with a fairly straight rail outline give the board endless speed and drive.

A slightly lowered rocker gives this board plenty of up and go speed, this has allowed DH to tone down it’s single concave which helps free the board up through turns, especially when the waves are a little softer.

PYZEL SHADOW 

 

The Shadow is designed to give you the advantages of a wider, forward outlined type of board but in a sleek, modern package. It features a high performance outline, but with the wide point at center not behind.

A pulled in nose by almost a ½ inch and added some extra rocker through the last 12 in the nose to keep it free through critical turns. It has a gentle hip for looseness and the squash tail is pulled in to help tighten the turning radius and improve its vertical capabilities.

The tail rocker and bottom concave remain nearly identical to the Phantom, which has proven to work really well in everyday conditions in waves around the world.

We recommend riding the Shadow about your height or an inch over, and in your favorite high performance dimensions.

PYZEL GHOST 

 

A super versatile board, it has become one of JJF's favorites for all kinds of surf (Margaret River winner, Bells Ollie Oop, J-Bay carves, and even head-high Trestles) and a go-to for many surfers around the world.

Originally designed for performance in hollower, more powerful types of waves, the Ghost has proven to be great for reef breaks, dumpy beachies, and also excels in point waves.

Depending on what you want to ride it in we recommend you order your Ghosts anywhere from your height to 8" over, a 1/4" to 1/2" wider, and 1/8" to 3/8" thicker than your everyday shorty.
