We got fun waves for this review, and the Monsta 8 performed very well. From 2-6' surf this HPSB carries good speed, and I found it to be very forgiving.

Most high-performance short boards (HPSB) are pretty demanding, meaning hard to surf with small sweet spots and need a solid wave to surf well. The Monsta 8 accelerates off the bottom with speed and has soft, forgiving rails. This board is easier to surf than most HPSB boards in this class, and I highly recommend it for intermediate/pro-level surfers.

The Monsta 8 shines bright in 4-8' surf and it surprised me how good it performs in 2-3'.
