JS Blak Box 3 Swallow Tail in HyFi Construction
JS Industries has been a leading surfboard brand for years, and their recent HyFi technology has taken JS boards to the next level. This innovative epoxy construction combines the best of durability, flex patterns, responsiveness, and lightweight to create boards that simply perform better. The lively feel of the boards is miles ahead of other epoxy constructions, and is actually preferred by many pros who typically only like the feel of PU. And the strength and ding-resistance of the boards seem almost counter-intuitive when you feel how light they are—which is exactly what makes this construction process so special.
JS has been slowly expanding their quiver to include more models that feature the HyFi construction. And here at Hawaiian South Shore, we re excited about the fact that we will be the first retailer in the world to carry the BlackBox 3 Swallow Tail in HyFi. The BlackBox 3 is one of JS’s most popular designs, and has been recently revamped for softer, weaker waves, making it a great shred-stick for when conditions are a bit sub-par. Additional planning area in the nose and added foam under the chest adds speed, while the wide point has been moved forward and combined with a swallow tail that creates a straight rail for more down-the-line speed and drive. This board is a great daily groveler for the average surfer, or a good step-down for pros looking to spice up their performance in below-average waves.
We have been excited about the BlackBox 3 Swallow Tail ever since the new design was released, and ordered a bunch for the shop a while ago. But since making our order, JS has been convinced to release the board in the HyFi construction, and we will be the first shop to receive these upgraded boards. With the latest groveler shape in the best, most high-tech epoxy construction on the market, the BlackBox 3 Swallow Tail in HyFi is the ultimate summer board—and summer is just around the corner!
