20 years of JS Industries. 10 years since our flagship shortboard, the original Monsta, was first developed. And now in 2020, our new Monsta will be ridden everywhere from your most rewarding sessions at home & regular trips chasing waves, to Dream Tour events and the Olympic Games. Its latest version is the most complete all-rounder we’ve ever made, improved and fine-tuned by elite athletes, global ambassadors & local legends, together with our recently retired World Champ and JS.
The latest and greatest for 2020 revolves around maximum performance, but with added forgiveness and fine tuning for each board’s desired conditions. We needed the new Monsta to provide spark for explosive manoeuvres in everyday waves, while being predictable and reliable in pumping surf from our backyard at Snapper & Kirra to destinations like Cloudbreak.
Medium entry and exit rocker, with a bigger sweet spot under front foot. Overall height is the same as Monsta 8, placement of the curve has just been pushed more to the ends of the board.
Monsta 2020 comes stock as a thruster. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.
Monsta 2020 is glassed standard with 4 x 3 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom from 5'6 to 6'4 and with 4 x 4 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom for 6'5+ (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips)
Monsta 2020 has medium rails, providing a forgiving ride if conditions are less than ideal, but still allowing unlimited performance.
Very similar to Monsta 8. Single under front foot, double concave between fins. Based on team favourites, JS chose to go back to his “reverse concave” which is deeper under front foot and shallower at each end. We found this to be the fastest of them all as it creates maximum water flow.
