The Monsta 8 is one of the most versatile surfboards on the planet. From waist high to double overhead plus, everyday surfers to World Title contenders, average surfs at home to annual trips chasing waves. No matter what, it won’t let you down. In competition, it’s the go-to for the Traktor Team in QS contests in small, weak beachies to elite Dream Tour locations like Snapper, JBay or Trestles – and it’s been on the podium at all of them.
One of the M8’s most important elements is the rocker, which has been gradually refined and improved from the incredibly popular M6. The last three inches of nose rocker have been slightly lifted to prevent catching in quality waves, while the adjustments to the tail curve provide extra release. Overall, the entry rocker provides easy speed generation, which is complemented by the maneuverability of a medium exit rocker. This combination is an absolutely proven performer for high performance surfing in almost any wave type.
M8 comes stock as a thruster.
M8 has medium rails, providing a forgiving ride if conditions are less than ideal, but still allowing unlimited performance.
Monsta 8 features a single concave starting at the nose running into a double concave beginning in front of the fins. Compared to the M6, the concave between the feet and through the fins is slightly deeper, providing easy manoeuvrability while still giving the board maximum lift and speed.
