Joel Parkinson, Mateus Herdy, Dusty Payne and more go bananas while testing JS surfboards’ newest sleds at URBNsurf
Since forever, surfboard feedback has been as inconsistent as the ocean. A new model that works amazing for Joel Parkinson at Snapper might feel awful for Dusty Payne at Honolua Bay. Two great surfers. Opposite feedback. So who’s right? Does the board suck, or is it the next best seller?
Finally, with the onset of high-performance Surf Pools, surfboard shapers have a controlled environment for their R&D sessions. For JS, there’s no better way to get honest feedback on a new line of surfboard models than to bring a stack of ’em to the URBNsurf pool in Melbourne and let the team go bananas.
Click play to watch the (very stacked) JS Team test out the surfboard line you’ll be seeing at your local shop soon. Judging from the ripping in this clip, it looks like there’s more than a few winners in the upcoming release.
