JS Monsta Box restock – we have just got a restock of key Sizes in the JS Monsta Box with coloured rail sprays! The Monsta Box is two of JS’s best selling models combined into the one board (The Monsta 3 & The Blak Box II) – creating a model that’ll work for a broader range of surfers and in a wider range of conditions. This Monsta Box model has less rocker than the Monsta 3 but a touch more curve than the Blak Box II. The outline is more generous than the Monsta 3 and but not as broad as the Black Box II. The tail block also sits somewhere in between these two models with a nice hip drawing back into a rounded square tail. A sweet single to double concave will give you plenty of lift to help you get up and running in quickly.
Advanced surfers will find this board a great choice for smaller, weaker, flat faced waves. The extra paddle power and speed you will get from this model compared to most performance shortboards will keep a smile on your face in more marginal conditions. A board that works well in the mush but can be surfed in decent waves as well – if needed.
Less skilled (or less regular) surfers will probably find this board a great choice as an all rounder. One of those designs that does an excellent job of combining forgiving and performance elements.

The Zak Ringmaster really ticks a lot of boxes for a lot of our customers and as a result it has been one of our bestselling models since its introduction to our range. It is Zak’s take on a hybrid style fish, containing all the paddle power you will need packed into a sporty shape that you can maneuver easily.
The Zak Ringmaster has a flat deck and boxy rails, ensuring an exceptionally forgiving and stable ride.The slightly more pulled in swallow tail and lower rails through the tail gives you the capacity to turn a little more sharply than your traditional fish. When ridden in the correct dimensions, this shape is perfect for those who want to maximize their paddle power without feeling like they are on a barge.
Suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers in the right dimensions – surf it in all conditions up to 6 feet. All of our own models at Zak Surfboards are shaped, glassed and finished locally here in Victoria. We use only the highest quality materials to construct our boards. We also build our boards in a more robust fashion than the industry standard.

The Zak Venus Fly Trap is our take on the performance mini-mal/midlength. One of our most popular selling boards in store, this model combines the full or wide nosed front end of a longboard with a pulled in round tail.
The low rocker line and flat deck means that this board paddles and glides onto waves like a dream. The pinched rail and pulled in pin tail makes this board nice and easy to maneuver. It’s ability to make quick direction changes means that you can position and turn this board with ease, a lot more like a shortboard than most boards this length.
The Zak Venus Fly trap has been designed to be a super forgiving board to surf, with performance on hand for when you need it. This is a great board for beginners through to advanced surfers in all types of waves up to around 6 feet.

The brand new Chilli Oh One model is now on our racks at Zak Surfboards. This model placed 2nd earlier this year in the STAB IN THE DARK board contest. Stab Magazine got 11 of the world’s best shapers to create their ultimate high-performance surfboard, for an unknown world tour surfer (6’0/80kg). These boards had no distinguishing markings or logos on them – the idea being that the surfer judged the cleanskin boards on pure feeling/performance underfoot, without any preconceived ideas of brand or model.
James ‘Chilli’ Cheal’s design was voted 2nd best Surfboard of the bunch by test pilot Julian Wilson in this competition. To celebrate this achievement, Chilli surfboards have rolled out this board as a new model off the the exact same file as the board that was made for the ’Stab In The Dark’ project. We now have a bunch of them in the shop too!!!
“The ultimate surfboard gives you feedback. The moment you stand on them you know. It tells you how it wants to be ridden.” – Julian Wilson.

We now have a few sets of the Futures Pipe Gun Tri Set in store at Zak Surfboards. The Futures Pipe Gun Tri fin set was developed with steep, powerful waves in mind with assistance from the Futures North Shore team. To help them achieve a smooth and stable ride at Pipe speeds they needed a special fin that would help them handle & harness the raw ocean energy involved in surfing that break. The popular John Carper JC1 was used as a starting point for developing this unique shaped fin. Specific changes were made to create a new template that would react as intended in heavy situations. This new template combined with a stiff pure fiberglass construction and a modified tow foil is the end result.
Height: 4.58 in, 11.63 cm
Base: 4.37 in, 11.10 cm
Area: 15.05 sq in, 97.10 sq cm
This Futures Pipe Gun Tri Set and other fins in the Futures Fins range are available from us both in store ONLINE
The JS Industries 107 Model is now in store at Zak Surfboards. Pegged by the staff and team at JS as their best small wave design to date. The JS Industries 107 Model was named after the production code found on the prototype board- a board conveniently misplaced in Joel Parkinson’s garage for 18+ months after it’s creation. Joel claims the 107 as his all-time personal favorite in 1-2 feet conditions. This model has now been rolled out for the general public – proving to be a step above other small wave models.
The 107 has a full outline with a wider nose and a straighter hip through the tail. There is a deep single concave under the chest which creates a large sweet spot for both paddling and generating speed off the front foot. This single concave then runs into a deeper double concave through the fins and finishes with a light vee out of the tail. This double / vee combo helps keep this wider shape easy to put on rail and reduces catch – making this one easy, forgiving board to ride even in really choppy surface conditions.
This model is designed to gain speed quickly off the mark and maintain it through turns, flow is the key in small waves and this board definitely delivers it by the bucket load. By all reports, catching waves is a breeze in this board, meaning earlier take offs so you can really make the most out of what each wave offers.
