A FAST high performance board designed for all experienced surfers.

SKU: JFOR. Category:


J-FORCE surfboard

The J-FORCE is a FAST high performance board designed for all experienced surfers.

The design is based on Gav’s knowledge and experience, specifically when working with Graham ‘Gee Force’ Smith to create magic boards for Jordy.

The J-FORCE hides volume through the mid-rails and evenly distributed foam, creating a board that is easy to manoeuvre and gives you ‘carry’ through radical turns, while maintaining power and speed. It incorporates a single to double concave, where Gav specifically carried the double concave further under the board for more ease in turning.


See EPOXY page for full details and images.

Epoxy foam with special stringer, epoxy glassing, bottom stringer strip and tail patch. We use a special light aerospace sandwich composite stringer designed specifically for structures subjected to slamming and shock loads. The stringer’s composite material includes characteristics such as low water absorption, superior damage tolerance and excellent fatigue properties enhancing the surfboard’s flex.

    Just got my new JForce 1-DA board and love it! Been awhile since I’ve had a board feel so good under my feet from the first wave. Looks like there may be magic in this one! Thanks so much Gav.

    Heat win at Kirra Teams Challenge today in perfect pumping Snapper. Stoked on the new J-Force craft I picked up just 2 days ago, it’s sick. It’s so fast, feels electrifying. Combo’d the heat score, it’s been a while since that happened… Need to get myself another 1-DA board in my quiver!

    Hey Gav. Took the board out today, worked like a charm! Its so light under my feet, made it really easy to throw around. Got thrown into a nice little barrel out at palmy, i did a late drop and closed my eyes thinking i was going to bail but dropped through the roof opened my eyes and was flying down inside the wave. It held really well. My mate was frothing at the build of the board he loved it and while i had the board sitting on the grass a bloke was leaving the shower, stopped by the board and had a good admire. Couldnt be more happier mate!

    I was in Newcastle for the Australian Surfing University Games these last few days, I reached the quarter finals 🙂 I surfed the Jforce in every heats and had really good feelings. This board is so fast and light so you can make crazy turns with it! I really enjoy surfing this board! 🙂

    Just rode my new 5’10 J-Force for the first time… As soon as the first ride began I knew the board had a lot to offer. After 3 waves I decided it is the best board I have ever owned. Can’t wait to surf it again. Thanks heaps Gavin Upson for the time and energy spend to refine the design.. Unreal.!

    Hi Gav – just wanted to let you know mate that the J-Force you made me is the best stick I have ever ridden. It is super fast down the line and is also so solid under my feet through my turns. It is totally improved my short board surfing. Next will have to be a performance Mal so I can keep up with my short board surfing – I think I need a Mistress!!!!
    Love your work buddy

    Hi Gav. The board goes unreal, wouldn’t change a thing. Cheers.

    The board works fantastic. Extremely fast off the bottom. It seems to slingshot to the lip. Something I never experienced. Took awhile to get use to actually. Very loose off the top as well yet still easy to control. Extremely fast as well. Really handles well in overhead surf. Loving it!

    Loving my custom j-force! I’ve had it for a few months now and my surfing is finally progressing to that next level. I expected the board to be fast but I didn’t expect it to also be so stable. I have so much more control than I’ve ever had before while keeping heaps of speed! Gavin was also really easy to communicate with and I could tell he really cared about making a board that was perfect for me. Thanks Gav.
