Shinn Monk Forever 2013
Shinn Monk Forever is a true masterpiece. It is described by independent testers as the board of the year and it offers pure performance. The Monk was a great board, but the Monk Forever is now even better. It offers more speed, grip and pop and it is ready to rip.
The Monk has its sweet spot at the high end between relaxed and hair-trigger. It can produce massive amounts of pop and drive at impressive speeds, but it is also comfortable and easy to keep under control. The board can slash the water in a smooth way to put a smile on your face.
It is engineered using Shinn’s special Squoval mould technology which generates excellent levels of bi-lateral flex in the tips while providing optimal rigidity under the feet. At the same time, the full wood core assures a perfect strength to weight ratio and generates optimal flex and pop. The progressive concave bottom design assures a smooth glide and increased stability in chop. The constant curve rocker assures perfect control, better upwind and planing potential and superior edge grip.
The board is equipped with the Sneaker X connection system which offers one size fits all progressive geometry, adjustable stance angles, Plush pro memory foam heel bed, Micro adjustable tuning buckle, Ergonomic 3D bed shaping and Zone specific traction pattern.
