With over 20 years of experience from JS Industries & 10 years since the flagship JS shortboard, the Monsta was first developed. The latest version the Monsta 2020 is the most complete all-rounder JS has ever made, improved and fine-tuned by his team of elite athletes, global ambassadors & local legends up and down the East Coast of Australia.
The Monsta 2020 revolves around maximum performance, but with added forgiveness and fine tuning for each board’s desired conditions. JS needed the new Monsta 2020 to provide spark for explosive manoeuvres in everyday waves, while being predictable and reliable in pumping surf from the shapers backyard at Snapper & Kirra to destinations like Cloudbreak.
The rocker has been tweaked to provide a more generous sweet spot, which easily generates speed, allows you to control big turns, and balances release out of the lip. Compared to the Monsta 8, the nose has a touch more curve in the last few inches to prevent catching in critical parts of the wave. The same magic tail rocker remains to fit into the conditions our Monsta 2020 is designed to thrive in – almost any conditions from chest high to double overhead plus.
Single concave under front foot runs into a double concave through the fins to give you extra lift yet maintain control in powerful surf, while a clean outline flows into a slight hip that allows for responsive direction changes. Overall, the Monsta 2020 prompts intuitive & fast surfing.
