OLD SCHOOL SPEED, NEW SCHOOL FLAIR
After years of testing, this is the first twin fin ever released in the JS range, and they’ve timed it precisely to coincide with Parko’s step away from the world tour, and straight towards everything that’s just about the pure enjoyment of surfing. Immediately after announcing his retirement at JBay, Joel jumped onto this board to see one of his favourite breaks in the world with fresh eyes, and rode one wave the entire length of the point, grinning the whole way. He was hooked, and so were we.
By design, JS wanted their twin fin to be equal parts old school speed and new school flair. Foam in all the right places to float over soft sections and fly down the line, yet still allow you to lay it on rail or bust the fins even when you’re going Mach 10. Parko’s overwhelming standout from all of JS's R&D combined a flat rocker with vee throughout the board from nose to tail, with a balanced, manoeuvrable plan shape.
JS also tested the twin in a huge range of waves, from tiny beach breaks at home on the Gold Coast, to perfect overhead Cloudbreak. His favourite board? The exact same as Joel’s, with the perfect blend of strengths to make the most versatile twin of ‘em all, which is what they now call the Black Baron.
Whether you’re surfing weak beachies or quality, down the line points and reefs, the Black Baron is a hybrid that allows you to take whatever approach you’re interested in, from exploring new lines and just how fast you can go on a wave, to combining sharp rail turns with throwing the tail. Whatever way you go, it’s all about maximum fun.
With JS's Black Baron twin fin being built to excel particularly in smaller waves, they’ve also made it available in centre stringer epoxy construction – our JS carbon fusion EPS.
A universal favourite for weak conditions, this option is ideal for surfers who want a board that’s lighter, with more buoyancy, yet still performs.
This is 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 twin fins.
This suits the type of boards 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.
Less layers = more flex

Black Baron performs best in flatter waves where you're looking to generate your own speed.
Rocker: - An overall low to flat rocker is well suited to create speed and glide in small to average conditions.
Fin setup: - Black Baron comes stock as a twin fin. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.
Glassing specs: - Boards are glassed standard with 4 x 2 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom. (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips).
Rail type: - Black Baron has flat low rails as a result of the board's flat deck, hiding volume in the right places for extra float, but also allowing you to turn at high speed.
Black Baron features a VEE throughout the board from nose to tail with added double concave through the fins. This design helps rock the board from rail to rail with ease.
