JS Monsta Box Now on our racks

Come and check out the new JS Monsta Box Now on our racks at Zak Surfboards.  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...

Futures Rusty Fins

Futures Rusty Fins – Our first run of Rusty Surfboards have arrived in store so we thought we’d better stock up on appropriate fins for them. Futures Rusty template Blackstix 3.0 & Rusty HC 5 fin sets in abundance ready to go. Futures Rusty template Blackstix 3.0 Designed by legendary San Diego shaper Rusty Preisendorfer for bigger surfers looking to generate speed and drive in smaller waves. The Blackstix material combined with the V2 foil provide an unrivaled liveliness in smaller waves –  the larger, balanced template ensures there is enough hold for the bigger guys, or boards with more tail area and rocker.  There is a slightly smaller back fin on these – which gives you a  touch more release and a slightly tighter turning circle. A popular fin in a variety of conditions up to 4 foot. Dimensions Size: Large (80kg+) Side Fins: Height: 4.63″ –  Base: 4.45″ – Area: 15.23″ Centre Fin: Height: 4.48″ –  Base: 4.37″  Area: 14.55″ Rusty HC 5 fin set This Rusty 5-fin set combines a slightly smaller template (to the Blackstix) but still full-bodied thruster set with additional matching quad fins. The thruster set is a nice M/L all round template, great in high performance shortboards or boards with slightly more tail area. The quad rears have been specifically designed  for increased drive and easy release off of the top – this...
