Blak Box 3 - Squash Tail
BLAK BOX III - SQUASH TAIL
Much loved by surfers around the world for the last eight years, we’ve set out to build a new board that does justice to the famous Blak Box DNA, which has always brought fun yet still exciting surfing to good, average and even terrible waves.
The success of our Monsta Box and Air 17X at the refined end of the X Series prompted JS to re-design our Blak Box to be even more suited to weak waves and surfers who don’t get their ideal choice of conditions day in, day out. It’s user-friendly, and it’s a must have to make the most of whatever window you have to get in the water each week.
Our new Blak Box 3 is all about easy acceleration and glide, so to achieve this we’ve given it a flatter rocker, more planning area and extra foam under the chest. To control and play with all that speed, the wide point has also been moved forward, which creates a slightly straighter, pulled-in swallowtail. This provides a smooth rock and roll from rail to rail, giving you extra drive and angles of attack to choose from anywhere on a wave. With slightly lower rails to complement its updated outline, we recommend riding the BB3 at 1/16” thicker than your last Blak Box.
For the pros, this board is an exceptional step down to cover you on days that the surf would otherwise be less than inspiring.
For the bros, it’ll be the go-to when those conditions are the only option you have.
