NOW IN HYFI TECHNOLOGY
One of the most versatile surfboard models in the world, this is the board that gives you the greatest chance for maximum fun and peak performance in all conditions. It’s by far our most popular surfboard globally, and in HYFI, it’s only getting better.
Two years in the making, our patent pending Hybrid Fiber Diamond (or HYFI) is an exclusive 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 perfect flex for maximum performance. With the Blak Box II being a clear favourite for surfers chasing a board to rely on in everything from average summer beachies to peeling pointbreaks, it has the perfect blend of strengths to make it the ideal model for HYFI’s coming out party.
It creates speed instantly when the waves are small thanks to its fuller outline and low entry/exit rockers, yet still has the ability to handle when the swell’s up due to its subtle bottom contours and performance hip squash tail. All of these design features combine to create an incredibly balanced EVERY DAY ALL-ROUNDER. For the widest range of people, and the widest range of waves, the BLAK BOX II is your new best friend!
HYBRID FIBRE TECHNOLOGY
The JS team is a legendary ensemble. From icons of style and World Champion power surfers to the most progressive leaders of the new gen, they’re at the forefront of it all. However, go-for-broke approaches mixed with the constant need to improve places an almighty demand on their equipment.
Imagine the strain put on a surfboard when Julian Wilson attempts to land the biggest air of the year in a heat, or when Owen Wright plays cat and mouse with Cloudbreak’s guillotine lip chasing a perfect 10. Pulling off stunts like this, both in competition and freesurfing, can sometimes end in favourite boards getting broken after only a few weeks. With this in mind, the goal with HYFI was to give us an ultra-high performance board that would go the distance, even at team weight.
Drawing inspiration from the most hi-tech crafts in the boardsports world, we looked at everything from wind-surfers and racing SUPs to wakeboards and snowboards. Advanced manufacturing techniques allow the leaders in each of these fields to create incredibly consistent, well built and long lasting products – three key components in the future of surfboard design.
Seeking to go one better as always, a purpose-built factory gave us the perfect environment to develop our patent pending Hybrid Fiber Diamond. This breakthrough, now known as HYFI, is an exclusive 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 perfect flex for maximum performance. And what we’ve discovered is, it’s only made possible with this exact combination of elements:
- BUILT with cutting edge materials
- FUELED by constant innovation and refinements
- PERFECTED through a specific construction technique pioneered by JS
We started with the most flexible base we could imagine, an EPS core with no stringer, and from there began the painstaking process of balancing strength, weight and flex. 100 prototypes with a range of different cores and materials, put together in every conceivable way. Adding carbon to areas requiring strength and rigidity, Olefin fibers to those needing more strength and flex, or a combination of layers when neither would do the job exactly right. Design, develop, surf. Over and over. Endless updates and improvements to every little detail.
And now, it’s all paid off. Welcome to HYFI.
