We now have a full size run of the JS Industries AIR 17X in store at Zak Surfboards. A shorter, wider and flatter version of the original Air 17 Performer Series – designed to be the perfect step-down that still feels like a performance shortboard but exaggerates your small wave abilities. This model is even faster off the mark & easily carries speed through flat sections, with a large sweet spot thanks to more foam under front foot. Soft, forgiving rails, deeper concaves and similar late curve in the nose and tail allow you to go anywhere on the wave you want in weaker conditions, with as much speed as possible.
A relatively forgiving performance board, in the right dimensions the AIR 17X is suitable for a wide range of surfers in a pretty broad range of conditions. For those of you that ride true high performance boards ordinarily, this model will make average waves a lot more fun. For those of you that need a board that is a little more forgiving, this could be a great all-rounder to consider. With summer and Christmas here – it might be a good time to treat yourself with one of these!!!
