JS Nitro HyFi-5'9"
5'9" x 20" x 2 1/2" 31.3 liters, squash, Futures Fins five fin, HYFI construction
Combined with a much fuller nose than other boards in the same category, we have designed a board that allows you to generate and hold speed through flat spots with ease. Along with its deeper concaves for even more lift and liveliness, plus a slightly pulled-in tail outline for extra drive, this pocket rocket is geared towards attacking small sections exactly how you’d mind surf them!
While the rails remain full to help overcome any catches in choppy or lackluster waves, excess foam has been foiled out from other areas to retain overall performance and sensitivity in the tail. In many regions around the world, the Nitro will become a go-to board in terrible to average conditions for any surfer wanting a fast board to keep you in the fastest part of the wave!
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.
