    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!

    Rusty Sista Brother
    Now in our Perth and Mandurah store, the brand new signature model surfboard from east coast surf punk Noa Deane is an all round weapon made to FLY.
    The Sista Brotha is developed from Noa's free-surfing travels. This is a high-performance shortboard which excels in a range of conditions from beach breaks to point breaks. The Sista Brotha features a single concave, moderate entry rocker and a low tail rocker with a fuller rail making this a lively board that allows its rider to execute their arsenal of maneouvers without thinking twice… Sista Brotha from Noa Deane.

    City Beach Juniors Final Club Contest

     

    Last Saturday the City Beach Surfriders ran their final junior event for the season in some shallow thumping waves at South City Beach Groyne. The event was kindly sponsored by Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week and helped raise awareness and funds for Spinal Injury prevention and research - a great cause!

    The contest ran in conjunction with Star Surf + Skate's Surfboard Demo Day and the beach was chockers with competitors and punters trying out potential new surf sleds, there wasn't an unridden wave all morning!

    Well done to Kash Cook who took out the event and then went on to scoop up the end of year award for the U16 division of Trigg Juniors that night.
