JS's best high performance all-rounder yet. 8 years after the original Monsta built its reputation as the go-to board for surfers around the world. JS introduce the finely tuned Monsta 8 the result of nearly a decade’s worth of research and development from the JS pro team, including Ace, Parko, Julian, Owen, Mikey Dusty and Ryan. There’s a little bit of everyone in the Monsta 8, with it becoming the new gold standard for the entire JS team.
The Monsta 8 has been refined to the point where everyone from longtime weekend warriors to world champs are calling it their favourite performance driven all-rounder ever. And now it has been unleasehed for the rest of the world to enjoy.
Waves: The Monsta 8 will work best in good or powerful waves in the 2 - 6ft range
Rocker: Refined and improved from the M6. The last three inches of nose rocker have been slightly lifted to prevent catching in pumping waves, while the adjustments to the tail curve provide extra release. Overall, the entry rocker provides easy speed generation, which is complemented by the maneuverability of a medium exit rocker.
Glassing Specs: Hyfi Construction
Concave: A single concave starting at the nose, which runs into a double concave starting just in front of the fins. Compared to the M6, the concave between the feet and through the fins is slightly deeper
Rails: The Monsta 8 has medium rails for forgiveness in less than perfect conditions, yet allowing full performance for when the waves are on fire.
Stringer: The Monsta 8 has a carbon strip running along the stringer for enhanced strength
Hyfi Technology - After over two years of research and development between top engineers and some of the world's best riders and over 100 prototype combinations of templates and materials, the resulting Hyfi (Hybrid Fiber) is an exclusive multi layer construction comprising of a stringerless EPS core with a mesh exoskeleton. Lighter, faster and stronger, the Hyfi creates the perfect flex properties for maximum performance. Carbon is added in all the right places for strength and rigidity and something called Olefin Fibres in other areas that require more flex as well as strength.
Picking up a Hyfi, you will definitely notice how much lighter these are than your usual PU board. (20% by all accounts). It should be noted that this doesn't mean you go way lower in volume, thinking it's going to be a lot more bouyant. The guys at JS say not to change your board length at all, and stick with what you normally ride.
Strength wise, Hyfi boards are reportedly 30% stronger than standard PU surfboards.
