Conner, as candid and honest as ever, breaking down some of his thoughts about joining the Traktor Team during an interview with Surfline:
What went into your decision to switch over to JS?
"Last year, I rode one of Ace Buchan’s boards at J-Bay and it felt really good. I had never really ridden any other boards my entire life, besides Channel Islands. I felt like I had been there so long, and I kinda needed to mix it up a little bit. We had been trying to make some new boards at CI for a while, and I wasn’t exactly getting the results I wanted – not in competition, but just the way the boards felt.Read More

San Diego, CA. June 25, 2020.
JS Industries is proud to welcome Conner Coffin to the Traktor Team.
The WSL standout, and current world number 20, has signed on exclusively with JS surfboards. Coffin, 26, made the decision to ride Jason Stevenson’s boards full time during an off season where the Santa Barbara native was able to commit to extensive R&D in Hawaii, Australia, and around home in California before COVID-19 forced the professional surfing world into an extended hiatus...Read More

The Monsta Box is our favourite fusion of all time, so to try and improve such a universally loved design, we kept a lot of the best bits, but found a few subtle yet key changes that we unanimously agreed upon in R&D:

Here's everything that goes into building a board at the JS factory on the Gold Coast, with Joel walking through our HQ to check out each stage. It all starts in the office with Jason in design (and subsequent smack talk), then progresses to choosing blanks, cutting, shaping, adding fin plugs, glassing, sanding and spraying. And then of course, surfing.

Just before the COVID 19 crisis cancelled trips and events around the world, our Traktor Team gathered for a huge day of R&D at the URBNsurf Melbourne wave pool. The kicker? While we tested boards, Ferrari would be on site for the global launch of an unseen supercar, with the fastest surfboards in the world requested to add some extra X factor to the spectacle.
So, all afternoon in the foreground Ferrari set up the release of their new F8 Spyder, while we 'warmed up' to be the 10 mins of entertainment for that night’s show. Mateus and Dusty blew minds on their HYFIs, Fred and Ramzi did the biggest turns they’d ever seen in the pool, Dingo surfed a twin better than ever, Parko couldn’t get off his new Monsta Box 2020, and Louie only went right to work on his layback tube stance. Board breakdowns, below.
