What Josh says about this model:

'Before the Monad, my shaping was without direction, I knew there was a feeling I wished to achieve so I floated from one design to another but I was always confronted with a glass ceiling, that’s not to say there were not great moments but overall I was left mostly disenchanted with the design principles of the boards I was attempting to create.

I had ridden twin keel fish in the past and knew there were golden elements, so started to experiment with this proven design and haven’t looked back since.

The Monad came about almost as a mistake. I had been making a few keel fish’s for Jasson Salisbury and they were working good but lacked that magic high-performance element that he had been seeking, particularly on the backhand.

I made two boards for Jasson a 5’3 and a 5’4 both basically identical apart from one had a conventional stringer and the other was stringerless. Without a stringer to hold the rocker the stringerless blank warped slightly whilst sitting in the glassing racks to the point where there was a noticeable acceleration in the last 8 inches of tail rocker behind the fins, the rocker had increased exactly on the point of the hip In the outline creating a fulcrum pivot point between the rocker and the outline. I was hesitant to give the board to him initially but from basically the first wave it was clear that something special was happening'.

The Monad is available 5'0 - 5'10
