This is our best high performance all-rounder yet, improved and fine-tuned by the entire Traktor Team. 8 years after the original Monsta built its reputation as a go-to for surfers around the world, from WSL podiums to everyday sessions and annual Indo trips, the Monsta 8 is the result of nearly a decade’s worth of R&D.
First, the rocker has been tweaked to have slightly more curve in both the nose and tail. The last two inches of nose rocker have been lifted to prevent catching in quality waves, while the adjustments to the tail curve provide extra release. Concaves have been deepened through the fins creating more speed and removing drag, while maintaining maximum control. The outline also has a more pronounced hip, allowing for quicker, more responsive direction changes. The Monsta 8 prompts intuitive, fast and flowing surfing, and has an outline to match.
Our Carbon Fusion EPS is a new epoxy construction with a specifically engineered flex pattern for waves that require you to generate most of your own speed. It’s fast and has plenty of pop – perfect for summer series boards like our Black Baron twin fin, but also for younger surfers as they develop their strength and technique.
This technology complements the type of models we want to ride to make small waves exciting. They don’t need all the layering of a HYFI, and with less layering, comes more flex. EPS Carbon Fusion has been our favourite construction throughout testing for weaker waves up to head high – ideal for surfers who want a board that’s lighter, with more buoyancy, yet still gives room to perform as much as conditions allow.
