JS Industries Hy-Fi Monsta-6 Review

What the JS Industries site says about the Hy-Fi Monsta-6:

About the Monsta-6
‘The Best All-Round Performer Just Got Better. Finally, after 3 years of enjoying the Monsta 3, Iʼve managed to create an advanced update that our team is really happy with! Monsta 6 is the brand new update of our best seller the M3.

I have worked closely with Parko, Julian, Owen, Ace and Dusty on new variations of the Monsta 3 since well before the Quik Pro in March 2015, which has led to the final product design of the M6. From Julian’s magic shortboard that took him to the infamous Jbay final, to Joel’s absolute favourites from the last 6 months, a lot went into this one.

It features slightly deeper concave overall and a smoother continued rocker compared to the previous Monsta’s. To compliment all of this I’ve added a touch more curve in the tail rocker with fractionally fuller/softer rails. All of these subtle changes – based on feedback from the Traktor Team and mates that surf all week have resulted in the best Monsta yet!’

About the Hy-fi Technology:

‘Seeking to go one better as always, a purpose-built factory gave us the perfect environment to develop our patent pending Hybrid Fiber Diamond. This breakthrough, now known as HYFI, is an exclusive multi-layer construction that feels like nothing else out there. Think of it as a futuristic exoskeleton for a surfboard that allows it to be lighter and stronger than ever before, while still maintaining the perfect flex for maximum performance. And what we’ve discovered is, it’s only made possible with this exact combination of elements:

BUILT with cutting edge materials
FUELED by constant innovation and refinements
PERFECTED through a specific construction technique pioneered by JS

We started with the most flexible base we could imagine, an EPS core with no stringer, and from there began the painstaking process of balancing strength, weight and flex. 100 prototypes with a range of different cores and materials, put together in every conceivable way. Adding carbon to areas requiring strength and rigidity, Olefin fibers to those needing more strength and flex, or a combination of layers when neither would do the job exactly right. Design, develop, surf. Over and over. Endless updates and improvements to every little detail.

And now, it’s all paid off. Welcome to HYFI.

This wasn’t a lucky accident. It took two years of research and development involving half a dozen of the world’s best surfers and most skilled designers to reach this point, where HYFI is now the pinnacle of surfboard construction to date. Precision engineered to be faster, stronger and lighter than anything else out there. Welcome to the future.’

What people are saying about it:

“It just suits every condition really well, and it’s kind of hard to find a board like that. It’s baffling when you do, and this one’s definitely done that.”– Dusty Payne

“Any time you want to generate your own speed and create your own excitement on a wave, I think this is the board you want to ride.” – Julian Wilson
