Board of the year



Sticking to our principle of “if it ain’t broke don’t try ‘n fix it” we introduce the 2014 Monk Forever. Shamelessly similar to the 2013 version but when Kiteworld magazine testers described it as “just the ultimate weapon” can you blame us?
Narrow tips combined with a straighter exit 3rd in the outline work together to provide masses of grip and edging ability which when combined with our constant curve rocker and bi-lateral tip flex make this the fastest, most controllable and easiest to handle board on the market no matter how tough the conditions. If high speed charging, slashing and jumping is your thing then look no further.

– Ultimate control in all conditions

– Effortless performance

– High speed riding and carving no matter the water conditions

– Fantastic range

– “Try one and you’ll buy one” awesomeness!

Squoval Mould
The results of 10 years R and D the Squoval mould provides un-paralleled levels of bi-lateral flex in the tips of your board whilst maintaining rigidity under your feet. No other 3D mould shape can match the comfort and performance of the Squoval mould.

Constant Curve Rocker
Our continuous rocker delivers constant edge grip in all water states. Constant grip, means constant pressure and more time to concentrate on your next move not controlling your board through the chop. more below

Progressive concave
Used to both stiffen the centre section of the deck without affecting the tip flex and at the same time decrease the rocker of the board when riding it flatter (ie under powered). Every Shinn features a progressive concave in the base. more below?

Full wood core
When it comes to board cores the solution is clear. No other product offers the same strength to weight to reliability ratio. You expect the best and we give it to you full wood cores on all Shinn boards.

Made in Europe
By strictly manufacturing all our products in Europe we maintain the quality control and performance you have come to expect when buying a Shinn. It’s expensive but you get what you pay for – guaranteed!

2 year warranty
Here at Shinn we stand by our products and that’s why we offer you a full 2 year warranty. If your deck fails you we’ll replace it (terms and conditions apply).

Sneaker X 14 connection system
Memory foam pad inserts, adjustable stance angles, non-slip buckle adjustment and zero tolerance nonslip surface all add up to the lightest and most comfortable deck connection system on the market today. more below

A lighter tech
Everyone knows that weight matters, all Shinn boards come in significantly lighter then their equivalents from other brands. Lighter on your feet, more reactive in the air and no strength compromises made to achieve it. In our case you really do pay for less!
