The simple truth of the matter is that most boards are designed by men and are meant to be used by men riders. It is also true that most high profile manufacturers have a board in their lineup specifically designed for women riders. In Shinn’s 2010 lineup that board is the Monokini.

The Monokini is not men’s board painted in girly colors so that Shinn can claim it is meant for women. This board actually caters to women’s specific riding needs. Therefore it is a bit less aggressive, it is meant to be used by the smaller rider (women are generally smaller than men), it comes with smaller foot straps (men generally have larger feet) and a reduced stance width.

The 2010 can be used by all women riders of all ability levels in a wide variety of conditions, ranging from flat water to chop.

Shinn’s tagline for the 2010 Monokini is: “It’s a Sinn.”

I don’t mean to sound shallow and small-minded, but for me looks are important. As far as looks go, this board delivers the goods. It may be a personal thing, but I really, really do like the pink and chocolaty stripes. Don’t get...more
