The Monsta Box 2020 Swallow Tail Easy Rider has been developed for easier paddling and catching waves, it has extra foam in all the right places. It shines in a wide variety of waves, from flat, weak conditions to steep sections and tubes up to 6ft. If you're only looking to take one board on your next trip, this is it!
No matter what the conditions are, you can rely on the Monsta Box to get you out there.
Easy rider dimensions created with the goal of making our most popular models even more approachable. After a year of JS riding more different boards than ever before alongside Occy and Parko, with an R&D process riddled with injuries, lower fitness levels & work obligations, JS designed our EasyRider specs for easy paddling coupled with high performance surfing. Foam is hidden in all the right places for extra floatation, but with lowered rails that can still be buried at high speed.
Our favourite fusion of all time, the Monsta Box combines all the best parts of our much loved Monsta and Blak Box models. It falls right in the middle as a perfectly balanced daily driver that you can rely on to grovel whenever necessary, but also enjoy some of the most fun & rippable conditions imaginable.
The new Monsta Box 2020 has more rocker and a narrower outline than the Blak Box 3, while it's fuller and flatter than the Monsta 2020. This gives it well blended curves to hide foam where you need it, without getting in the way of performing at a high level. A smooth single to double concave with a touch more depth creates lift in sub-par conditions, but allows you to remain in control when the waves turn on.
Whoever you are, the Monsta Box over delivers in several crucial parts of almost all surfer’s year round quivers. It’s the step down our Traktor Team use when the conditions don’t quite call for a Monsta. It’s the go-to when our friends who are lucky enough to surf every day want a performance board for smaller waves or less than pro abilities. And for the places and seasons that don’t get a lot of quality waves, it’s a forgiving option that will help you surf your best regardless of average conditions. The Monsta Box 2020 is our most popular hybrid, and now it’s better than ever.

2-6ft, or waist high to well overhead. Great in many conditions from crumbly, flatter wave faces to good quality surf with hollow sections.
Medium low entry and exit rocker, with a bigger sweet spot under front foot. Overall height is the same as the original Monsta Box, placement of the curve has just been pushed more to the ends of the board.

Easy Rider boards 5'8" - 5'9" glassed standard with 4 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom. Boards 5'10" - 6'2" glassed 4 x 3 oz. deck and 4 oz. bottom. 6'3 and up glassed standard with 4 x 4 oz deck x 4 oz. bottom (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips)
Monsta Box 2020 has medium full rails. This performance based rail shape allows for precision when the right section stands up, yet has enough volume to get you through fat sections or avoid catch in chop.
EasyRider boards are specifically designed to suit these dimensions, with more foam hidden under the chest, but a slightly lower rail to maintain responsiveness and still allow turning at high speeds. They’re not just blown up exactly from the regular dims, they’re based on the favourites from JS and Luke Egan – finely tuned during extensive testing to get the perfect balance of performance and forgiveness.
Similar to the Monsta 2020, although deeper throughout for more lift, suiting smaller / less powerful conditions. Single concave under front foot moves to double concave between the fins. Based on team favourites, JS chose to go back to his “reverse concave” which is deeper under front foot and shallower at each end of the board. We found this to be the fastest of them all, as it creates maximum water flow.
