MONSTAIR – 18′”x72″x8″
Tech & Finish
8” (20 cm) double layer drop-stitch technology, inflatable hull with full EVA deck. 4 US-fin compatible boxes.
The MonstAIR is a big beast!
It features the Drop Stitch Technology in Double Layer Edition. This is a no-comprosmise solution for extended durability. The chances of hitting some shallows or rocks are pretty high with this board so we wanted to make sure the board withstands all the challenges.
The MonstAIR comes with 10 carrying handles.
It “performs” best with 6 to 8 paddlers and willingly can take up to 10 riders.
WHY DO WE HAVE IT ?
No serious reason! We just have it in our range because it is fun – big time!
Paddling is a social sport and when you want to paddle together with your buddies and friends, why not do so on just one board?
Learn about team work as you get in sync paddling with your friends. Or you could just relax and have the others do all the work. Or –as can be seen on the pictures– you can even bring your chair and have your friends taxi you from beach to beach.
As it is such a big and stable platform it can be used in streams, rivers, white water and the surf, too.
It probably is the most stable platform on which to learn the very first basics of the rig handling: with 72” (183 cm) it is so wide you literally can’t fall off!
There are 2 mast plugs for windsurfing rigs. If used with only one rig, attach it in the rear plug!
When using two rigs, put the bigger sail to the rear.
The mounting of the fins requires no tools. Simply insert the front slider into the fin box and tighten the screw with your hand.
Use 2 fins for paddling. Still, the 18’ (~5,50 m) board length and the amount of paddlers give it enough traction that you could paddle without any fin as well.
Remove all fins for paddling in shallow or white water!
Use 4 fins exclusively for windsurfing.
Only the lift of 4 fins will provide sufficient resistance against the sideways drift and to go upwind.
Do not put the board on the ground fins down!
The fins will suffer from the board’s weight and may break.
DOUBLE LAYER EDITION
The JP double layer edition will always be a first choice for the rough use environment, like the whitewater for example.
The weight of our double layer edition inflatables is still lighter than what competition has to offer.
NEW FIN BOXES AND FINS
The fin-box is an all new US-box compatible system and comes with ALL our inflatable boards! They suit short base US box fins. Unlike most fins for inflatable boards, these new fins are foiled. The MonstAIR comes with 4 boxes and 4 fins.
Board comes with:
EVA standing area (=whole deck), towing D-ring, 2 mast plugs to attach windsurfing rigs, bag, 2 pumps and a repair kit, 10 grab-handles.
4 boxes compatible to US box fins. 4 foiled PE (polyethylene) fin with screw.

100% Carbon CNC shaped high density PVC core blade with a 60% Carbon shaft is a great performance paddle. We kept the 'swing weight' low by using the full carbon blade. The 60% Carbon shaft is a better option for those looking for a slightly forgiving feel at a really low weight predominantly in waves or touring.

GLASS PE PADDLES
This combination of light fiberglass shaft and tough fiberglass reinforced Polyethylene (PE) blade is a great alternative to heavy alloy paddles.?Due to the longitudinal structural reinforcements, the PE blades are very light but also very stiff.
New for 2016 is the small Glass PE paddle with a 75in2 blade (40cmx17cm). The shafts have horizontally roughened surface for a good grip and they come with an ABS handle. Blade: glass PE Shaft: fiberglass with glossy rough finish Size / Blade Area: • 90 in2 (17" x 8.3", 43 x 21 cm) • 75 in2 (15.7" x 6.7", 40 x 17 cm) 2-piece - Length: 5'2"-7'0", 158-214 cm | Weight 850g 3-piece - Length: 5'7"-7'0", 170-214 cm | Weight 940g Length 2 piece: 4'5"-6'3", 135-190 cm
The compression clamps are very solid due to two connecting points secured through a FCS compatible set of screws for fine tuning.
The inner tube fit to the shaft is impeccable and there is absolutely no play. There are no holes drilled either on the extension or the shaft, so the construction is not compromised.
The nice feature to the 3 piece paddles is that the extension can be attached directly to the bottom part to work nicely as a kids paddle.
