Overview: My Lil Monsta looked and felt great as soon as I picked it up, it is a little longer and narrower than my pervious board and I like it better. The board is nice and loose but still holds great through carves


  • Single to double concave
  • Medium nose and tail rocker
  • FCSII thrusters setup with the Julian Wilson groms (I’m super psyched on these fins, they have great hold and I love the black and blue colour)

Recommended Conditions: I ride the board in all conditions and it does the job, but I love it on bigger, steeper waves.


  • Fast, light and loose
  • Accelerates quickly
  • Works in any conditions


  • I would prefer to ride a shorter board in small, sucky waves
  • I find the FCSII fins great but they are a bit hard to get out
