JULIAN WILSON, JS INDUSTRIES AIR 17

Julian is an amazing surfer and can rip on anything. He's a lethal surfer at Snapper. He has a strong foundation in his surfing with a lot of rail work but also has the tricks which requires a different board to Mick and a little bit more volume up the front for when he's completing aerial maneuvers. 

THE LOWDOWN

The Air 17 is Julian's signature pro model, available to purchase now!. It has more volume further forward of the middle, a boxier rail than the Monsta 6, a lower entry rocker with a nose and tail flip to make it a high-performance board. There's a bigger sweet spot in the middle. Single concave with a little big of double.
