The following Hi Performance models are the most up to date, highly refined and tested board designs in the JS range. Used by many of the worlds top surfers in competition to get the absolute most out of good to medium conditions.
MONSTA was the most ridden model in Joel, Jacks and many others WCT quiver’s for 2012. It went in almost every condition that was thrown at it, Snapper, Trestles, Rio, and Santa Cruz to name a few. Its soul purpose is to fill the void between very poor and very good waves; which for the most of us are our daily bread and butter.
I made a few ever so slight changes throughout the year after a few conversations with Joel and Jack. The most notable was the addition of curve in the last 3 inches behind the back fin so it gave the board a bit more release.
MONSTA has a slightly flatter rocker and more concave than FMN, which allows it to be ridden in most wave types with ease. It also has fuller softer rails making it a really forgiving performance board. It’s one of those boards that you will find yourself surfing the most. Ride MONSTA model 1 inch shorter than your forget Me Not (or standard short board).
RAIL TYPE - MONSTA has higher volume performance rail.
WAVE HEIGHT - Depending on fins and conditions, MONSTA is designed to perform best in average to above average waves from 2 - 6 feet.
FIN TYPE - MONSTA comes stock and is recommended as a thruster. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.
GLASSING - 4x4 oz deck, 4 oz bottom + carbon patches
MEDIUM EXIT ROCKER - Is a comfortable balance between drive and release. Suits largest range of conditions
SLIGHT ENTRY ROCKER - Best rocker for creating speed and glide in small to average conditions.
CONCAVE - Single concave starts in the nose to direct water under your feet for lift and speed. Double concave starts in front of fins wich maintains lift and directs water release for maneuverability.
