Check out the latest clip from Octopus featuring Colin "Goose" Moran. Colin has been a favourite among the Boardcave team for awhile now mainly because of his unique style, in particular the reverse layback/grab hack's he throws at the lip (as seen in the video title image). Could this manoeuvre be how he was nicknamed "the Goose"? Probably not, but we think it's rad. Enjoy the clip!

Recently the team at JS have added 3 new models to their elite range. The first two are the latest and greatest addition to the 8 year long evolution of the popular Blak Box series, The Blak Box 3 Squash and Swallow Tail. These versatile models are designed to keep you surfing your best and bring fun to even the most average conditions. More planning area in the nose and extra foam under the chest gives this board excellent acceleration and glide whilst the more forward wide point creates a straighter outline that will keep you driving from rail to rail with constant speed. See video below of Parko (6'0" - 83kg) riding a 5'9" x 19 5/8" x 2 7/16" = 29.9L
The third new model is the swallow tail Monsta Box. For this model JS have fused their 2 best selling boards in the range together to create a board that suits an even wider range of surfers and conditions. The Monsta Box is Mikey Wrights' go-to everyday board. A blended rocker profile of the Monsta 8 and Black Box 2 by adding a long single to double concave. This allows the board to shine in sub-par conditions yet provides control in good conditions. A medium full rail allows for smooth rail to rail transitions yet enough volume to cut through chop without loosing speed or catching. A performance outline suited for all conditions! Check out the video below of Julian Wilson ripping the Monsta Box in average conditions
This ripping new clip from Nate Tyler and Haydenshapes Surfboards was shot entirely around his home, on the Central Coast of California. Nate is a man of many talents! Most people may not know that apart from surfing, Nate also designs custom homewares and artworks. He's always had a creative, unique style and approach in and out of the water. Over recent years Nate's creativity along with fellow Haydenshapes team rider Dion Agius has also been channeled into a new surfboard traction company Octopus is Real.
