JS’s Ultimate Groveler the “Flaming Pony” Available in HYFI Construction
Jason Stevenson (JS) is known for making cutting-edge, high-performance boards that the world’s best surfers use to dismantle the world’s best waves. But what about when an average surfer is stuck surfing average to poor waves at home? Fortunately, JS has an answer to that as well—it’s called the Flaming Pony.
The Flaming Pony is JS’s “most user-friendly groveler of all time.” The board builds on the history of the Flying Pony, which itself was a descendant of the Pier and Show Pony models. The board has a fuller nose and redistributes the volume to provide more foam under the chest. This increases paddle speed, which is further amplified by pulling in the tail further to facilitate maneuvers The board has continuous rocker throughout, and features a standard single concave up front. This gives way to double concave under the back foot ,giving the board both control and shredability.
The Flaming Pony comes with five fin boxes, so it can be ridden either as a quad or a thruster. It is JS’s latest dedicated groveler, and built to help you maintain performance even in the most terrible of waves. Stock sizes range from 4'11" (and around 21 liters) to 6'0" (at around 43.5 liters), so the board is meant to ridden quite a bit shorter than your normal shortboard, but two inches longer than past JS Pony models. And the Flaming Pony is available in HYFI construction, which means that now the ultimate groveler can be made from the most progressive materials in surfing.
