What the JS Industries site says about the Psycho Nitro:
‘The Nitro was one of our most loved Summer Series boards back in the day! With many customers continuing to order this as a custom model I thought it was time to be creative and make a completely new one.
I have given the Psycho Nitro a fuller nose with a slight vee and added more foam under the chest to give you even more paddle power. It has a smooth, flat, continuous rocker with a single concave under the front foot which runs into a double concave through the fins and finishes with a vee out of the swallow tail.
For 2017, we’ve eliminated the flyer, and pulled in the tail even more, which reduces the area through the back of the board and allows you to turn on a dime in the pocket on small waves. This provides a fast, reactive feel that will let you draw lines in average conditions that simply aren’t possible on other boards! To complement this, the swallow tail gives the Psycho Nitro a lively rail-to-rail feel and makes it incredibly easy to surf.
Regardless of what time of year it is, this Summer Series favourite is a perfect way of keeping us all surfing between swells. It’s super quick, paddles amazingly, turns really well and has everything you need for a fun surf in less powerful, everyday waves. Psycho Nitro comes standard with a 5 fin set up so you can ride it as a thruster or
a quad. Ride the Psycho Nitro 4 – 6 inches shorter than your normal short board.’
What people are saying about it:
“I haven’t been able to stop riding this board – running on two months now – and I have so many other boards that I should be riding and doing reviews of, but I just haven’t been able to stop riding because it just works so well for me.
If I were to, again, critique any part of this board, I think it does suit my surfing style, so if you’re more of a power surfer, I think this would be a great option for you but if you like short, quick direction changes, perhaps you’ll find it too stiff.” – Benny on comparesurfboards.com
“With a fuller nose, slight vee concave and added foam under the chest the Psycho Nitro is a paddle machine. With its smooth, flat, continuous rocker, single concave under the front foot running into a double through the fins, which then extends into a vee out of the pronounced swallow tail, this board oozes speed and control and loves being ridden rail-to-rail. The tail features a flyer which reduces the area through the back of the board, providing a pivot point on the back foot, meaning this board will turn on a dime and sit nicely in the pocket in small waves. The benefit of this flyer, combined with the swallow tail, means you can really surf this board rail-to-rail, some small wave grovellers have super wide tails which can hinder performance surfing in less than average waves; not here!” – MagicSeaweed
“The outline of the JS Psycho Nitro features a fuller nose with a wide point forward of centre. There is a slight slight vee through the nose and noticeably more foam under chest – in a nutshell this means more paddle power and more drive off the front foot. This model has a flat but continuous rocker from nose to tail with a single concave under the front foot running into a double concave with a vee out of the swallow tail.
The Psycho Nitro has a small flyer just behind the back fins, reducing the area through the back of the board and making it nice and snappy to surf. The swallow tail gives the Psycho Nitro a lively rail to rail feel and adds a little extra bite and control in steeper sections.” – Zak Surfboards
