What is JS INDUSTRIES HYFI Surfboard Construction?
WHAT IS HYFI?
Our unparalleled epoxy technology, HYFI, is a unique 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 ideal spring-loaded flex for maximum performance.
Jason Stevenson and his JS label (famous for the tractor logo) have been producing some of the most high-performance surfboards on the planet for more than two decades. No one questions the design elements of these boards, and a number of guys on the world tour ride them, including Julian Wilson, Owen Wright, Adrian Buchan, and Joel Parkinson. But what many people don't realize is that the technology that goes into the construction of the boards is just as cutting edge as their design.
JS offers its range of boards in the HYFI construction, which is a hybrid fiber technology. The product of two years of research and development, HYFI is the latest and greatest in surfboard construction advances, producing light, strong, fast surfboards that are more durable than polyurethane boards but ride just as well. The flex out of the tail adds more drive and projection, the boards are 20% lighter than PU boards (making them faster and more maneuverable), and they simply donâ€™t ding as easily as normal glassed PU boards. The result is the ultimate strength-to-weight ratio, applied to some of the best designs in the surfboard industry. In other words, the perfect board.
JS offers a number of popular models in the HYFI construction, including the Monsta 6, the Air 17, the Monsta Box, the Blak Box II, the Ghetto Cat, the Psycho Nitro, and the Flying Pony. Here at Hawaiian South Shore, we are excited to carry a number of JS's HYFI boards. Come check them out I've already added one to my personal quiver!
