Now living part time on the Sunshine Coast and part time in Newcastle, J-Dub's been scoring plenty of fun waves between CT events. Ever since we sent his first batch of boards down south earlier in the year, he's managed to keep things fresh by surfing just about everything in the quiver - from a HYFI Psycho Nitro on the smallest days (set up as a quad) to regular PU Air 17s in preparation for better waves and contests. With a rippable little beachie on the cards this day, Julian's weapon of choice was his new step down, the Air 17X, in HYFI. Board breakdowns below (he's 6'0" / 80kg):

You'd be smiling too if you were standing under the Golden Gate with the perfect California all-rounder!

From a wild and inconsistent North Shore season to summer in Newcastle, Julian’s had boards dialled for just about every type of wave you could imagine over the last month. Staying sharp in between swells before Pipe? Air 17X. Mixed bag of ramps, walls and tubes at Rocky Point? Air 17. Backdoor warm-ups? Forget Me Not.

Air 17X R&D with Julian at home from JS INDUSTRIES on Vimeo.
Being one of the most versatile surfers in the world, Julian knows exactly the type of equipment he needs everywhere he goes around the world. From his Air 17s and other shortboards in Europe, to the latest quiver of step ups and guns he's taking to Hawaii, there's a lot of variety there. But for fun, smaller surf - whether it's at home on the Sunshine Coast, Sydney or California - the new benchmark we've worked on with Jules is the Air 17X. Read More

Full of confidence, Julian was throwing everything at the first section every time he took off. Nose picked, mid-rotation, one foot on the board... all control. Photo Trevor Moran
