My Feedback:

I bought the JS Air 17 as a bit of a step up for when the waves get a bit bigger & cleaner than our normal beach break conditions & it's definitely a more high performance board than my Black Box 2 when the waves get good. The narrower tail & medium rocker make it a ... Continue reading

My Feedback:

I bought this board as a replacement for my 6'0" JS Bullseye as my "allrounder" & it goes really well in most beachbreak conditions up to 4ft. I've ridden it in bigger reef breaks & it didn't feel as good, probably because of the width.  I did find this board a bit stiff ... Continue reading

My Feedback:

This is my "step up" board for when we get some serious waves. I've also ridden it in the Mentawais & Bali & it feels so good under my feet when there's a bit of size & power in the waves. The best thing about it is I can get on this board after not riding it for months ... Continue reading

My Feedback:

I bought this board to be able to still have fun when the waves are tiny & gutless & it's definitely delivered. It has enough volume to maintain speed through fat sections & paddles really well. I have ridden it in up to 4ft waves & as long as they don't get too ... Continue reading
