The Xero Gravity is a mash-up of a bunch of JS’s most popular designs, intended to give the Monsta Box a run for its money as the best board in the company’s lineup. Featuring the rocker of the Monsta Box, the foil of the Xero, and a few updated tweaks on an all-arounder that has won events on both the CT and QS tours, this is the board that will take your performance surfing to the next level. The Xero Gravity thrives in any conditions up to the head-high+ range, has a medium rocker, a large sweet spot under the front foot, medium full rails, and a thruster fin configuration.

A Fusion of JS's Greatest Hits

The Xero Gravity combines the best features of JS's wildly popular Monsta Box, Xero, and Blak Box designs. It utilizes the medium-low entry and exit rocker of the Monsta Box, providing that board's unmatched wave range and smooth transitions. The Xero lends its responsive foil and hidden deck foam to increase speed and pop. Finally, the pulled in rails sharpen the Gravity's responsiveness for carving and maneuvers.

This hybrid fusion results in a shortboard tuned for all-around progression in waist to head high surf. JS refined the Xero Gravity over years of feedback from their pro team in real-world conditions. It's won events at both the QS and Championship Tour level, proving itself among the world's best surfers. Regular wave riders reap the benefits in optimized design offering control plus liveliness from power hacks to open face carves.

Maximized Maneuverability

Several design elements maximize the Xero Gravity's maneuverability for progressive surfing. The medium-low entry rocker provides easy paddling and transition up the face while still maintaining control. Foil with a tucked in chest area increases responsiveness and spring when setting up for turns.

The wide sweet spot under the front foot gives ample stability when driving through bottom turns or lining up hits. Medium full rails add just the right blend of hold and release. They engage cleanly without abrupt catch or slippage.

For fins, the Xero Gravity comes equipped with a thruster setup using FCS II or Futures systems. The three fin configuration balances drive and pivot for versatile turning. Overall, the board exhibits tighter radius performance than a pure groveler shape while retaining forgiveness. This amplifies the range and levels of maneuvers accessible to intermediate and advanced surfers.

Construction Built to Withstand Thrashing

To match its high performance aspirations, JS constructed the Xero Gravity to withstand heavy use in all conditions. It comes available in both PU and HyFi builds, using epoxy and fiberglass lamination. PU offers a lively flex for snap while HyFi increases response and durability.

Reinforced glassing specs add strength and impact resistance. Decks use a 4 ounce cloth on sizes under 6 feet and 3 ounces above that length. Bottoms feature 4 ounces throughout the range for resilience to wear. Plus, hybrid glass tail strips provide additional armor against pressure dings and fractures.

JS dialed in the glassing and resin ratios to create a shortboard that's highly reactive yet able to handle abuse. The Xero Gravity won't lose pop or deteriorate after extended thrashing due to its rugged build. It's designed to maintain top performance season after season just like JS's team of globe-trotting pro riders.

Sizing to Match Your Style and Wave Conditions

The Xero Gravity comes in a range of lengths from 5'9" to 6'1" so you can fine tune fit based on your abilities and local surf. Shorter boards in the low 5 foot range offer tighter turns for advanced surfers in steeper waves. The extra length of the 6 foot options provides control for intermediates or maneuvering larger sizes.

In terms of volume, the outline and rocker enable the Xero Gravity to run a little under true shortboard liters. So you can size down 5-10 liters for increased responsiveness or bump up for more stability. Either way, the board's balanced design makes small increments of length or volume impactful.

Dialing in your dimensions based on weight, height and waves results in a custom locked-in feel. The Xero Gravity gives you the versatility to tweak your board to your evolving skill set as you progress.
