SALLY FITZGIBBONS, JS INDUSTRIES MONSTA 6

Sally recently signed up with JS with the first event she's surfed with was the Target Maui Pro in Hawaii, the final event for the women's world tour.

Sally is a little pocket rocket. What surprises me about this board is it's quite long and narrow but she's surfing really great on it at the moment, she's been up testing it out on the Gold Coast this month and has been looking really good. 

Sally surfs a lot lower, more compact than Steph and the fine tuning on this board is really helping her out.

THE LOWDOWN

The Monsta 6 is a high-performance board and is coming out in stores in April. The board has quite a low rail which is helping her drive into turns a lot more with this board.

THE SPECS

5'8
17 5/8
2 3/16
22 Litres 

*Sally Fitzgibbons will be signing copies of her book "Live Like Sally” on Thursday 3rd March at 3.30pm in the Surfing World tent at the Australian Open of Surfing at Manly Beach. Come down and meet Sally! You can pick up a copy of the book on the day or order one online here.
