The JS Lowdown was developed towards the end of 2013 by JS and Julian Wilson. The idea was to create a performance shortboard that performs in smaller, junkier waves.

The key element to the Lowdown is the volume, which has been stripped in the tail and around the fins – increasing sensitivity on the back foot – and redistributed towards the front of the board, allowing you to really push off the front foot to create drive and generate speed.

The Lowdown is best suited to easy going waves in the 1-5ft range.

The Lowdown has a single concave in the nose of the board to create lift and speed, which morphs into a double concave in front of the fins to direct water through turns and increase drive and maneuverability.

You will find the rails on the Lowdown slightly softer and fuller than the other boards in the High Performance range, allowing you to maintain speed through turns without catching.

The Lowdown is a performance shortboard with medium rocker. An extended sweet spot is created through the center of the board by leaving the exit rocker late under the back foot. The entry rocker follows the same path as the exit rocker…flattening out quickly to yet again increase the sweet spot.

The JS Lowdown will be available in the following dimensions:-
