To coincide with Parko’s retirement from the world tour, JS Industries have just released their first ever Twin Fin model – The Black Baron. Designed to perfectly combine the best of old-school Fish shapes with new school performance. A lot of work has gone into fine tuning the foam placement in this model to give you the best of both these worlds. As a result, this board has the ability to fly down the line & easily skate over flatter/softer sections – yet still allow you to put it it on rail and drive through turns at high speed. In the R&D process, this model was been tested in a full spectrum of conditions – from tiny, soft beach breaks peaks on the Gold Coast, to perfect overhead Cloudbreak before finalizing the design for release to the general public.
Whether you’re surfing weak beachies or quality, down the line points and reefs, the Black Baron is a shape that allows you exceptional speed, maneuverability and flow – explore new lines and maximize your fun with one of these!!

The boss recently did an Podcast Episode with the crew at Smorgasboarder Magazine. In the discussion he touches on his experiences in the industry over the past 18+ years, shaping surfboards, breaking bones, the current state of the surf industry in Victoria and more. Raw, candid and uncut as you’d expect for Zak. Probably more than a few F#Bombs in there so maybe not for you if you don’t like bad language. Hit link below for more:

We are loaded up with Torq Surfboards (Shop Now) ready for the coming summer.

The Torq Mod Fish design (pictured here in a6’6″) is a perfect blend of a classic fish outline with a contemporary rail shape & bottom contour. The Mod Fish is built for that combination of speed, manoeuvrability, paddle power & stability. Specifically designed to excel in a wide range of conditions, the Torq Mod Fish is equally at home in pumping overhead waves or mushy, choppy, knee high peaks. The Mod Fish shape has a fairly full nose for glide, stability and paddle power. The full outline tapers back into a swallow tail for extra bite and control, while still retaining that fast, loose feel underfoot that fish shapes are famous for. The bottom features a single to double concave for speed, with a pronounced vee to help you get this relatively wide board on rail.
Torq Surfboards are built using a molded epoxy construction, that is heavily reinforced – meaning these things can take a real beating (compared to traditionally constructed PU & other EPS/Epoxy surfboards). This makes Torq Surfboards a great choice for the beginner to intermediate surfer, or those of you that want a board that will really last. Available in a great range of shapes too – come and check them out in store or have a look at what we have in stock ONLINE
