What the JS Industries site says about the Monsta Box:
‘MONSTA BOX is two of my favorite boards rolled into one!
By fusing the 2 best selling boards in the range together I have created a board that suits an even wider range of surfers and conditions.
The MONSTA BOX has less rocker than a MONSTA 3 and more rocker than a BLAK BOX 2. The outline is wider than a MONSTA 3 and narrower than a BLAK BOX 2. I’ve blended the MONSTA 3 and BLAK BOX 2 rockers to create a perfect combination of entry and exit rockers and given it a single to double concave.
MONSTA BOX comes standard with a 3-fin setup. Whether you’re travelling light or the budget’s a little tight, MONSTA BOX has you covered. If you could only take 1 board to the beach then the MONSTA BOX is it!’
What people are saying about it:
“I must say it is one of probably the better all-around boards I’ve ridden. A lot of people are saying it’s the one-board quiver, and I must say it is. You’ll see in the footage, we got some pretty average waves and it feels fine to ride as much as those stumpy, squashed down hybrids. But, when the waves get good, it was at home in those conditions, too.” – Ben on CompareSurfboards.com
“I just got one of these boards. I’m 5’11, 180 lbs, and a decent surfer. I have the 6 x 19.75 x 2.5 stock dims and I gotta say this board feels good. Great job hiding the volume, very fast, very loose, but still drives. I’d recommend this board to really anyone. Especially if you’re a little on the bigger side and want a daily driver. Slam Dunk.” -Timoteo on CompareSurfboards.com
“Awesome board, had it in most conditions now and goes great, feels light and responsive and easy to get into waves, stoked! Stomach to overhead this board rips!” – FishSkulls76 on CompareSurfboards.com
“The JS Monsta Box is a small wave performance model. The board has a somewhat straight and gentle outline, the wide point being fairly central. The tail is wide however pulled in enough to create a great balance of responsiveness and forgiveness. This board has a low to medium entry rocker and a low tail rocker. This creates lots of speed in flat sections of the wave. The tail rocker is such that it also allows plenty of release as there is a small amount of lift. The rails in this board are medium. The rails are close to the perfect cross between forgiveness when turning and hooking in and holding rail in curves. I find that the tail in the board is a great width to push off and put power into turns. I think that this board is excellent at flowing and linking your turns together due to the great balance between rocker, rails and a wide point that allows for both surfing off the back and front foot respectively. This board performs well in open face waves and also small quick critical sections. Good board for a wide range of everyday waves and a go to board which is reliable in up to 5-6 ft. I have used the FCS 2 AM2 medium fins which is great for hold and release off the top.” – Bob D on BoardThought.com
“MONSTA BOX combines two of the best selling JS boards to create a ripping sled!! Team rider, Mat Jorgo and lead product tester, Anthony (Macka) Wilson are currently riding the MONSTA BOX, while Men’s Buyer, Mat Coz eagerly awaits the arrival of his own. It’s safe to say that the Monsta Box by JS gets the Saltwater Wine seal of approval!!!” – SlatwaterWine.com.au
