JS Flying Pony Board Review

Model: Flying Pony

Length: 5 ft 5

Width: 21

Thick: 2 9/16

Tail Shape: Round Square

Volume (litres): 33.2

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 1-2 foot

Wave Type: Beach break

Overall Rating: 8/10

My Feedback:

From the get-go, its clear that the JS Flying Pony is unlike most other small wave summer boards.  There's a stack of volume under the chest, and the almost non-existent rocker is perfect for creating straight line speed and glide. For the full review, jump across to the Boardthought ...

Tail Shape: Square

Volume (litres): 33.6

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 4-6 foot

Wave Type: Beach break

Overall Rating: 8/10

My Feedback:

This is the relatively new model from JS Industries, incorporating two of the most popular models from the past couple of years; the Blak Box and the Monsta.  It's a hybrid of a really high-performance board.  The board is one of my favourite all-round performance shortboards. ... Continue reading

Flounder Pounder Board Review

Length: 5 ft 6

Width: 21

Thick: 3

Tail Shape: Swallow

Volume (litres): 45

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 1-2 foot

Wave Type: Beach break

Overall Rating: 8/10

My Feedback:

Standing tall at 5'6" this little performance fish by Global Surf Industries surpassed all expectations.  The board dealt a swift blow to my preconceived idea that softboards are not typically ridden with small wave performance in mind.It's a must-have for anyone looking to spice ...

Fred Rubble Review

Model: Fred Rubble

Length: 5 ft 11

Width: 19

Thick: 2 5/16

Tail Shape: Round

Volume (litres): 27.2

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 4-6 foot

Wave Type: Beach break

Overall Rating: 7/10

My Feedback:

This one's a little different to the other CI models I've ridden.  It has a lower entry rocker and wider outline. Its been a fun board for beach break waves waist high to a little overhead, and fits nicely in the quiver between a proper step-up and an every-day small wave performance ... Continue reading

Indo barrels

Model: Napalm

Length: 6 ft 1

Width: 18 1/2

Thick: 2 5/16

Tail Shape: Rounded Pin

Volume (litres): not sure, paddles great

Fins: Futures

Wave Size: 6-8 foot

Wave Type: Reef break

Overall Rating: 10/10

My Feedback:

This is my favorite board in the world. By far the best board I have ever ridden, and have got the best waves of my life on.  Works amazing in big surf, you can ride a little smaller than a usual step up. Napalm has plenty of paddle power, and feels as responsive as a short board ... Continue reading

Thick: 2 3/8

Tail Shape: Round

Volume (litres): 30

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 2-4 foot

Wave Type: All wave types

Overall Rating: 8/10

My Feedback:

As the title says a solid all rounder and is my go to board in 2-5ft surf. This is a paddle machine and seems to catch waves with relative ease picking up speed from the take off and carrying it through turns and flatter sections. Not sure what the rolled deck to rail does but I ... Continue reading

Volume (litres): Its a hand shape

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 4-6 foot

Wave Type: All wave types

Overall Rating: ★★★★★

My Feedback:

Ive had this board for years now. I pull it out when I feel the need. My short boards were longer when I got it but the length doesn't worry me now. This thing is such a nice change from your standard performance board. It has so much flow. The added small side fins allow you to push ... Continue reading

Tail Shape: Round Square

Volume (litres): 30.3

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 4-6 foot

Wave Type: Beach break

Overall Rating: 9/10

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

Volume (litres): 18.5

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 2-4 foot

Wave Type: Beach break

Overall Rating: 10/10

My Feedback:

My 4'11 is one of my favourites because it goes sick in small waves, messy beaches and gets through dead sections well. My other favourite is my 5'0 x 16 7/8 x 2 polka dot, because it goes really good in sucky point waves. I love the way it holds the bottom turn in bigger waves. Full ... Continue reading

My Feedback:

Here is my Epoxy Dylan Free Flow. This board felt lively and responsive in small 1-3ft mushy beach break conditions over the summer, it was nice and lite and always felt springy under foot, it was very responsive through turns on the smaller average summer days, and always felt like ...

Tail Shape: Round Square

Volume (litres): 35

Fins: FCS

Wave Size: 4-6 foot

Wave Type: All wave types

Overall Rating: 9/10

My Feedback:

This has to be one of the funnest all round boards I've ridden. It seems to flow and connect through turns really well while retaining it's speed. I've surfed it from 1 foot slop up to overhead solid beachies and it seems to handle well in most conditions, but I'd say it would probably ... Continue reading
