BIG J surfboard

The BIG J is a performance board designed for the big guy or average fitness surfer.

The design is based on the J-FORCE model, but with increased volume.

The BIG J’s added volume is incorporated through mid-rails and evenly distributed foam. It has a single to double concave, where Gav specifically moved the double concave under the front foot for more ease in turning.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    I purchased a custom Big J , 6’6″ x 19 5/8″ x 2 1/2″ x 33.4 lts, from 1-DA 4-5 months ago. Went from a 6’7″ more of a rounded pin to a bit squarer as in the photo. I wanted something that was a little looser and would hold into the pocket; something with a heavier glass job to last, as there’s a lot of rocks where I mostly surf. The waves I have surfing have been mostly around head high but have had a day up to 5 ft or so. Haven’t got any photos of me surfing but see the couple of photos of the wave I’ve been surfing most, it’s 3 ft or so and pretty crowded, eh 🙂 Enjoying the board, holds in well, I’ve slid or dropped into a few a dicey ones a bit sideways and have caught my rail no worries. Had a couple I’ve taken off on that I didn’t think I’d make the section on but did and have managed to pull into a few pockets for a quick cover up. Finding it easier to bring it all the way round when cutting back or coming off the top, able to whip it back around out of the pocket where before I was coming out of the turn with more a faded bottom turn or off the bottom of the wash. Mainly been surfing lefts but had a few fast rights the board kept up with and have managed to vert on a couple (but ate it on one!). Can also get a lot of speed when driving of the bottom of a wave. All and all, very happy and would not hesitate to recommend a board from 1-DA!
