The Black Baron twin mixes versatility with old school speed and new school flair, that is why became one global favourite. You could ride it in weak beachies or quiality, down the line points and reefs.
Now, JS industries presents its little brother, the Red Baron: same diverse approach but adding buoyancy and glide to excel beyond other surfboards.
The Red Baron is ridden shorter, about 2 inches, and wider than the Black Baron, with slightly extra width in the tail outline also providing more flow and easy speed generation.
This is how JS industries describes the Red Baron's lines: "Vee is maintained in the bottom contour throughout, like the original Baron, although a touch more double concave in the Red Baron provides drive and helps you project down the line."
The fins is the other differentiating point from the Black Baron. The Red Baron is designed to ride a keel fin template, as the high area and depth delivers control and helps maintain incredible speed on rail. Classic keel fins offer maximum drive and hold, making sure you’re able to get creative even at high speeds on a much shorter board.
· Rocker | "An overall low to flat rocker is well suited to create speed and glide in small to average conditions."
· Glassing | "Boards are glassed standard with 4 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom. (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips)."
· Rail Type | "Red Baron has flat low rails as a result of the board's flat deck, hiding volume in the right places for extra float, but also allowing you to turn at high speed."
· Waves | Red Baron performs best in flatter waves where you're looking to generate your own speed.
|· Concave | Red Baron features a VEE throughout the board from nose to tail with added double concave through the fins. This design helps rock the board from rail to rail with ease.|
· A BIT ABOUT JS INSDUSTRIES SURFBOARDS ·

What does JS industries and the tractor of the logo stand for? Have you ever think of that besides thinking, “yep, that’s cool”? Well keep reading…
JS stands for Jason Stevenson. As Stevenson says, back when he started shaping, everybody in the industry was calling surfboard companies by their name and that’s not like him. He chose JS because of it and a lot of people don’t even know still who that is or what’s the real name behind it. Even though he knew it would get out there eventually.
So, JS is Jason Stevenson. He’s the founder, owner and shaper that built JS industries from the ground up. He has build strong relationships with world class team of loyal surfers throughout the years thanks to not only his shining talents but also his passion and love for surfing.
Not in vain the iconic Traktor logo has been found under quite some elite surfers’ feet over the years such as four world Champion and more 32 contenders. The valuable feedback of these top surfers are part of the innovations and improved designs over the past two decades.
Now, why a Tractor? Let’s Jason Stevenson himself explain that one:
“The tractor… Well, Maurice Cole had the teddy bear at the time and, even though it was a teddy bear, it still looks really cool. I wanted it not so much to be about me. I wanted to build a brand but I also had connections to machinery. There’s a childhood photo of me standing next to a huge machinery that my old man used to drive when working as a machine operator in the mines in Straddie. Both my mom and dad surfed so, that is how it all began.
“I went to Toys ‘R’ Us and bought different machinery toys thinking that I would get a logo out of one of them. I got all these different sort of things and trucks and there was this one tractor that I went up and took photos of it. It was a yellow tractor at the time and I was like, “Yep, that’s it”. Then it just evolved and that is how JS Industries had its logo.” –Jason Stevenson.
