If you decide to buy somewhere else or would like to support the show, please donate at https://www.paypal.me/surfnshow The JS Blak Box 3 is very easy to surf and I highly recommend it for upper end Beginner/ Intermediate / and Expert level surfers for 1-5' surf. The BB3 checks all the boxes for a small wave performance board. 1. Good paddler 2. Quick get up and go speed 3. Projects with speed through maneuvers 4. Good drive off the bottom and big rail turns I struggled a bit with it in 1-2’ surf due to the HYFI construction feeling a bit heavy under foot. Both boards carried good speed but I felt they lacked the pop or X Factor from turn to turn in 1-2’ surf that I normally get out of a light weight stringerless EPS board. The weight factor is an easy fix… I would just custom order the BB3 in HYFI with a lighter glass job. Overall the performance of the BB3 was solid and I had a great time surfing it in 3-5’ surf. I liked the HYFI construction in bigger surf due the extra weight. The board was easy to get on rail with its low/medium rail design and somewhat heavier stock glass job. No noticeable chatter or vibration that I normally feel from other light weight EPS boards. I also want to mention that I rode 2 stock 5’7” boards with the exact same dimensions but one was a Swallow Tail and the other a Squash Tail. You have to watch the review to find out which one I liked better. Board DIMS: 5’7” x 19 ¼ x 2 ¼ Liters 26.1 Board Weight: 5.55 lbs Weight for most stock Stringerless EPS boards reviewed: 4.7 lbs – 5.0 lbs My height 5’9” My Weight: 160 lbs or 72.57 kg

Great video Noel, this is a completely new chapter to me. I mean, honestly I thought that the liters of the surfboard was in a direct relationship with its weight, now you show us that isn't the case. I'm a little bit confused in this subject, weight/liters relation
Surf n Show Reviews
Surf n Show Reviews - 2 years ago
charleschannel Liters are related to Weight of board in my opinion. These two BB3 in HYFY are a bit on the heavy side so they don’t have the extra float most other EPS boards do.
KOSTAS GOULAS
KOSTAS GOULAS - 2 years ago
A friend has the BB3 and told me the same. The board is for 3-5 ft even 6 range. It's not good for 1-2 ft surf
Matt Leontis

If you're thinking about buying an EPS JS I wouldn't recommend glassing it light. I have a stock EPS Monsta 8 and buckled it really badly after nose diving on a 2 foot floater. They like to say stringerless epoxies are stronger but in my opinion, they are weaker simply because they don't have a stringer. Simply put, you will no doubt buckle your EPS if you glass it light.


Other than that, I think JS makes really good boards and I love their stringerless EPS ones. I think it's perfect for this board.

Ok so ive now surfed my BB3 in HYFI a couple of times now and heres my thoughts.I ride a stock 6'2 x 20 3/4 x 2 3/4 = 38.3 L.My weight is 96 kgs and im 6'3.Firstly the weight.Ill try compare to my PU Lost Quiver Killer which is 6'2 and very similar dims.Glassing is the same on both boards 4 x 4/4...this board is super light.Id say approx 30% lighter than the QK.I know Noel says its not but to me it "feels" very light.Secondly i usually ride a 39 - 39.3 L shortboard.I sized my BB3 on the premise of an extra .5 - .8 L less for the epoxy.I can definately feel this is not as buoyant as my 39.3L QK.So my suggestion is to size your BB3 EXACTLY like your PU board litreage.Do not undervolume your BB3.Even though the thickness of the board is 2 3/4" the rails are med low and sharp.If i picked this up off the shelf without looking at the dims id think this board is 2 5/8",maybe 2 1/2".It just seems very "thin" to me.Is this a 1 - 2 ft groveller no way.In 1-2 ft i felt it wasnt at its best.In 3 - 4 it gets better.Id certainly say this is a daily driver and id think this board could easily handle 6 ft +.Hope this helps.

Surf n Show Reviews - 2 years ago
Percy Ferguson My back foot has a large surf knot on it that I had surgically removed 3 years ago. It came back already from the friction of surfing. I cut up a bootie trying to customize a brace.

Both of my big toes get blood blisters from gripping the deck so I tape them to avoid the pain.

Im glad you mentioned the Monsta Box. In my head I thought it would be a daily driver as really it is a combination of the Blak Box and the Monsta "high performance" model in the JS line.

This is the only problem of getting surfboards designed by Aussies. The waves so much more push down there I hear compared to SoCal.
GeniusUnleashed
GeniusUnleashed - 2 years ago
@Janice James Gotcha. But does JS shape out of there? The owners of the surf shop I go to in LA always say he shapes a bit too much for pros and powerful good waves, versus Matt Biolos who's in SoCal where it's generally weaker half the year.

I’m surprised you surfed it as a 5’7. I thought you would of gone a custom 5’5 for this model. I would ride this the same length as my Neckbeard 2
I really like how it looked under your feet though.. I thought it looked really smooth.
A few of my mates on the Goldy in Australia ride these boards and absolutely rip on them.
In fact as a model you don’t see many guys look bad on them (and they’re everywhere here), even if their surfing is at a lesser level.
Compare that to say something like the Hypto Krypto, where most guys who surfed them looked terrible.
To have most guys who surf your board look good style wise is obviously a real credit to the design and how easy it is to ride.
Great review as always.

Nicely done! IMO very helpful to see how a board goes in beach breaks that have some really slow sections (and really fast ones) - even if not as fun for you ; )

I have a BB3 squash and a CI Rocket Wide both PU. The BB is a better paddler and fits in the small wave pockets better but the RW is easier to pivot and has more flow if the waves are lined up with better shape. I'd recommend the BB for junkier surf and beach breaks like the one you surfed here. How would you compare?
rippert
rippert - 2 years ago
Karl, my RW has 1L more volume than the BB3. For me the BB3 works great in punchy windy and junkier conditions like we get here on the east coast. To my eye it seems Noel is moving much better in the beach break and a bit sluggish at the point where the RW would be a better call. Stoked either way! Both are good boards.
Surf n Show Reviews
Surf n Show Reviews - 2 years ago
rippert The RW grovels better and it has better flow. The RW paddles better too
Karl Jakobsson
Karl Jakobsson - 2 years ago
I have both but my BB3 is PU and the RW is in SpineTek. The RW grovels way better in 0-2ft, BB3 has a much narrower range and needs more wave 2ft+ even thou it’s almost 2l more volume to the RW. You have both in the exact same volume?
rippert
rippert - 2 years ago
Sorry Noel compare the BB3 to the RW. Thank you.

I put my Lost Quiver Killer next to my BB3 and the BB3 has more entry and exit rocker...i suspect why not the best 1-2 ft groveller as my QK is not considered a groveller.
