FASTER AND MORE USER-FRIENDLY THAN EVER

Much loved by surfers around the world for the last eight years, JS have 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 their Monsta Box and Air 17X at the refined end of the X Series prompted JS to re-design their 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.

The new Blak Box 3 is all about easy acceleration and glide, so to achieve this they've given it more planning area in the nose and extra foam under the chest. To control and play with all that speed, the wide point has also been moved forward, which creates a slightly straighter, pulled-in swallowtail. This provides a smooth rock and roll from rail to rail, giving you extra drive and angles of attack to choose from anywhere on a wave. With slightly lower rails to complement its updated outline, they recommend riding the BB3 at 1/16” thicker than your last Blak Box.
For the pros, this board is an exceptional step down to cover you on days that the surf would otherwise be less than inspiring. For the bros, it’ll be the go-to when those conditions are the only option you have.

WAVE TYPE

BLAK BOX 3 is built to fly in waves that are fat and crumbly, yet still performs in clean and hollow conditions. Best wave height is between 0 and 4 feet. BLAK BOX 3 is perfect in average surf when most high performance boards are struggling.

FEATURES

Rocker: - JS have kept the overall low to flat rocker from the BB2 and flattened it through the middle slightly creating extra glide.
Fin Setup: - Blak Box 3 comes stock as a five fin and will work equally well as a quad or thruster depending on the conditions. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.
Glassing Specs: - Boards 5'4" - 5'10" glassed standard with 4 x 2 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom. Boards 5'11" and up glassed standard with 4 x 4 oz deck x 4 oz. bottom (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips).
Rail Type: - Blak Box 3 has medium to low rails, reducing catch and increasing speed in and out of choppy or soft sections.

CONCAVE

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.
