BOARD OVERVIEW

THE BEST ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO GET BETTER

20 years of JS Industries. 10 years since our flagship shortboard, the original Monsta, was first developed. Our new Monsta will be ridden everywhere from your most rewarding sessions at home & regular trips chasing waves, to Dream Tour events and the Olympic Games. Its latest version is the most complete all-rounder we’ve ever made, improved and fine-tuned by elite athletes, global ambassadors & local legends, together with our recently retired World Champ and JS.

The Monsta 2020 revolves around maximum performance, but with added forgiveness and fine tuning for each board’s desired conditions. We needed the new Monsta to provide spark for explosive manoeuvres in everyday waves, while being predictable and reliable in pumping surf from our backyard at Snapper & Kirra to destinations like Cloudbreak.

The rocker has been tweaked to provide a more generous sweet spot, which easily generates speed, allows you to control big turns, and balances release out of the lip. Compared to the Monsta 8, the nose has a touch more curve in the last few inches to prevent catching in critical parts of the wave. The same magic tail rocker remains to fit into the conditions our Monsta 2020 is designed to thrive in – almost any conditions from chest high to double overhead plus.

Single concave under front foot runs into a double concave through the fins to give you extra lift yet maintain control in powerful surf, while a clean outline flows into a slight hip that allows for responsive direction changes. Overall, the Monsta 2020 prompts intuitive & fast surfing. It’s a huge milestone for us, and now, it’s ready for the rest of the world to enjoy anywhere, anytime. The best always find a way to get better.

MONSTA 2020

WAVE TYPE

The Monsta 2020 is one of the most versatile surfboards on the planet. From waist high to double overhead plus, everyday surfers to World Title contenders, average surfs at home to annual trips chasing waves. No matter what, it won’t let you down. In competition, it’s the go-to for the Traktor Team in QS contests in small, weak beachies to elite Dream Tour locations like Snapper, JBay or Trestles – and it’s been on the podium at all of them.

MONSTA 2020

Features

Rocker

One of the M2020’s most important elements is the rocker, which has been gradually refined and improved from the incredibly popular M6. The last three inches of nose rocker have been slightly lifted to prevent catching in quality waves, while the adjustments to the tail curve provide extra release. Overall, the entry rocker provides easy speed generation, which is complemented by the maneuverability of a medium exit rocker. This combination is an absolutely proven performer for high performance surfing in almost any wave type.

Fin setup

M2020 round tail comes stock as a 5 fin. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.

Glassing specs

M2020 is glassed standard with 4 x 3 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips)

Rail type

M2020 has medium rails, providing a forgiving ride if conditions are less than ideal, but still allowing unlimited performance.

MONSTA 2020

CONCAVE

Monsta 2020 features a single concave starting at the nose running into a double concave beginning in front of the fins. Compared to the M8, the concave between the feet and through the fins is slightly deeper, providing easy manoeuvrability while still giving the board maximum lift and speed.
