Much loved by surfers around the world for the last eight years, we’ve set out to build a new board that does justice to the famous Blak Box DNA, which has always brought fun yet still exciting surfing to good, average and even terrible waves.
The success of our Monsta Box and Air 17X at the refined end of the X Series prompted JS to re-design our Blak Box to be even more suited to weak waves and surfers who don’t get their ideal choice of conditions day in, day out. It’s user-friendly, and it’s a must have to make the most of whatever window you have to get in the water each week.
Our Carbon Fusion EPS is a new epoxy construction with a specifically engineered flex pattern for waves that require you to generate most of your own speed. It’s fast and has plenty of pop – perfect for summer series boards like our Black Baron twin fin, but also for younger surfers as they develop their strength and technique.
This technology complements the type of models we want to ride to make small waves exciting. They don’t need all the layering of a HYFI, and with less layering, comes more flex. EPS Carbon Fusion has been our favourite construction throughout testing for weaker waves up to head high – ideal for surfers who want a board that’s lighter, with more buoyancy, yet still gives room to perform as much as conditions allow.
BLAK BOX 3 performs best in waves that are fat and crumbly but goes equally well when its clean and hollow. Best wave height is between 0 and 4 feet. BLAK BOX 3 is fast, manoeuvrable and super rippable! It’s perfect in average conditions when most high performance boards are struggling.
An overall low to flat rocker is the perfect all-round rocker creating speed and glide in small to average conditions.
Blak Box 3 Youth Series comes stock as a 3 fin.
EPS CARBON FUSION
Blak Box 3 has medium to low rails, reducing catch and increasing speed in and out of choppy or soft sections.
BB3 features a single concave through the nose running into a double concave starting forward of the fins. This design directs water under your feet to maintain lift, speed and manoeuvrability.
