JS HYFI CUSTOMS - MADE IN OZ!

 

We're very excited that the guys at JS are now manufacturing CUSTOM JS HYFI boards straight out of their Gold Coast factory!

The following JS models are now available as custom orders in HYFI construction: Monsta 6, Air 17, Monsta Box, Blak Box 2, Ghetto Cat, Psycho Nitro, Flying Pony.

RRP is $1100 on these boards but you can use your Star VIPs discount on a custom HYFI and receive 5% off.

Because your custom HYFI will be made to your own specifications in Australia, you can now pick your own dimensions, tails, plugs and sprays in HYFI EPS construction. The Blak Box 2 and Monsta Box both come with spray included in the price.  You can order these 2 models as clear/white boards also, however price doesn’t change with no spray. All other models are clear unless you wish to purchase a spray.

Feel free to email us or call our Mandurah store on 9535 4500 for any more info you need!

 

JS Surfboards Summer Range At Star

 

We have started to receive our first deliveries of JS Industries Surfboards for this summer.

Below is the list of models that we will be carrying over the summer months at our stores.

If there's a particular JS you'd like to purchase but you can't see it below, please email websales@starsurf.com.au and we'll order the board direct from the JS factory for you, and you'll still receive your Star VIP discount... Too easy!

All JS Industries boards from this summer will feature hybrid fibre reinforcement (hyfi) tail patches on all boards. Here's what the JS guys have to say:

Innegra S is a high-performance olefin fibre that is lightweight, tough, durable, hydrophobic and recyclable. When high-modulus fibres are combined with Innegra S fibre, weight can be reduced, impact resistance and damage tolerance are vastly improved expanding the performance of existing fibre technology.

Hybrid Fibre Reinforcement (hyfi) development.
It became obvious that the original composite patches had to change when our team was requesting no tail patches as it stiffened the tail. Additional layers of cloth added weight with minimal protection and as the tail is most vulnerable to damage, a solution was required.

This lead us to develop the hybrid fibre (hyfi) reinforced tail patch. Using a calculated spacing of yarns, positioning the strongest close together on the outside rail & reducing the strength and quantity onto the deck gave us strength where needed. This layup also blends the flex to avoid any irregular stress points.

Properties: 
• Multi-filament, high modulus olefin yarn
• Density 0.84g/cc
• Hydrophobic
• Tough
• Durable
• Low Elongation
• Low Creep
• Highly Crystalline
• Recyclable

JS 
“I am always on the look out for ways to strengthen boards so they last longer but more importantly I want to maximise performance! I’ve been working on a new way to keep maximum strength but I also wanted to reduce the stiffness that regular patches/strips give the tail. hybrid fibre (hyfi) is a perfect solution for maintaining the strength, making the boards a little lighter and keeping the optimum flex pattern. After rigorous testing with the team the response was unanimous. Parko, Ace, Dusty and Owen all said the boards performed like their favourites with no patches and had little or no damage to the tail area at all”.JS  

 Monsta Box

MONSTA BOX is two of JS's favourite boards rolled into one!
By fusing the 2 best selling boards in the JS range together, the boys have created a board that suits an even wider range of surfers and conditions.

The MONSTA BOX has less rocker then a MONSTA 3 and more rocker than a BLAK BOX 2. JS has blended the MONSTA 3 and BLAK BOX 2 rockers to create a perfect combination of entry and exit rockers and given it a single to double concave. 

The outline is wider than a MONSTA 3 and narrower than a BLAK BOX 2.

MONSTA BOX comes standard with a 3-fin set-up.

Whether you’re travelling light or the budgets a little tight, MONSTA BOX has you covered. If you could only take 1 board to the beach then the MONSTA BOX is it! 

 

107 

 

107107 was the production code found on the board everyone around the JS factory is calling the best small wave design to date. 107 was built and trialled by JS staff, several JS team riders and many local rippers. In fact, the original board disappeared for 18 months and was finally found in Parko’s garage recently. Parko had been nursing this puppy for over a year and he reckons the 107 is his all-time personal standout in small 1-2 feet conditions. 
JS replicated this model and once again 107 proved to be a step above any small wave model in its path. The 107 has all the fundamentals needed for small wave surfing. The nose is wide yet still conventional. The single concave under the chest offers a large sweet spot before running into a deeper double concave throughout the fins backed up by a light Vee coming out of the tail. The design intent revolves around catching waves easily, capturing speed quickly and maintaining speed throughout turns. The tail volume is reduced and the curve is pulled for tighter turn in the pocket.

Blak Box 2 Round Tail
The Round Tail BLAK BOX 2 has all the same legendary elements that make up the original squash tail and also some added versatility via an alternative tail shape and 5 fin set-up options.
The BB2 squash already exceeded people's expectations in a wide range of conditions and often pushed people to surf the board beyond its intended limits. For this reason we wanted to expand these limits.
Rounded pin tails offer “all-round” performance in the pocket or tighter part of the wave. Set up as a quad you’ll get projection down steeper, faster waves, which will get you around that next mushy closeout section or will provide extra hold in the tube with more speed and manoeuvrability than you've ever felt before.

Hippee

HIPPEE made its first appearance earlier this year under the feet of Julian Wilson. It was during the 2014 Hurley Australian Open when conditions deteriorated to a weak 1 foot beach break through the middle rounds. Julian dominated those rounds and proved the HIPPEE to be all we had expected from it as the greatest (super) small wave performer to date.
Its direct drive, resulting from the straight section leading off the hip, this hip also gives a pivotal point for fast directional changes. HIPPEE has volume forward and is finer out the tail, specially suited surfers who want to combine aerials and rail surfing.

Monsta 3

  

The MONSTA 3 model is the most all round, high performance board in the JS quiver. It was credited as the 2013 surfboard of the year by the SBIA as well as playing a major part in Parko's WCT victory.

The Monsta 3 slots into the huge gap found between perfection and absolute slop.
This model has been building momentum since its release in 2010, undergoing slight adjustments from event to event and surfer to surfer to finally arrive at its current ideal state.

Forget Me Not 

Parko used the FMN 5-fin set up in many events throughout the past couple of years on tour when the waves were good. And in 2013 it made its way under the feet of 3 of the top 4 places in the Margret River Pro (Dusty, Ace and Julian Wilson). If you're heading anywhere and you expect to surf good waves make sure you have a FMN round Pin on hand.

FMN played a major role in Parko’s 2012 title win, being the first choice when the waves were at their best. Although the DNA of this model has been around since 2009 it is constantly evolving and improving along with the surfers riding it. FMN is now at the peak of performance surfing equipment and when used in appropriate conditions is unrivalled.
During 2012 I made a few adjustments to JOEL’S FMN adding more volume throughout the centre of the board, yet still keeping the rail heights in line with what the model is actually for - GOOD waves. Having a lower more refined rail allows the board to penetrate and turn at high speeds.I have also added slightly more area to the outline yet leaving the tail tight with no hip for a continuous smooth curve.

2015 WINTER Surfboard Range

Swell season has well and truly kicked in which means it's finally time to ditch the summer step-down boards and get onto a high performance weapon or even a step-up for Indo and out of town trips.

Here's our pick of the latest hifi sleds to get under your feet for the next few months. We will be carrying a full size curve of all these models to make sure you guys have nothing but the best choice in surfboards this winter!

 

JS Forget Me Not

The go-to board for Parko, Dusty, Julian, Ace and Owen once the waves get serious, the JS Forget Me Not is a quality step-up for solid waves in the 6ft+ range. Coming stock with five fin plugs you can customise your fin set-up depending on the conditions of the day. There's a huge range of stock dimensions so you will definitely be able to find something that perfectly suits your height and weight.

 

JS Monsta 3

When the waves are cooking but not massive, the JS Monsta 3 will light a fire under your feet and push you through turns with speed and ease. This is JS's all-round performer and the board of choice for the JS team (Parko, Owen, Julian, Dusty, Ace) when the waves are average to good and they wanna start throwing down hammers. 

 

 

Rusty Traveller

 Nothing says barrels like a sleek rounded pin tail and the Traveller packs a nice pulled in tail and a slight single to double concave bottom curve to keep you locked in and pumping down the line in barrels and solid surf. This board is very well suited to Indo and WA's North West and South West coastlines which is why it's been very popular with Star customers for the last few years!
