Here in the UK the Monk is a legendary board . Very capable in all of the conditions from flat to horrendous storms, able to keep high speeds throughout while still being exceptionally easy to ride with superb control and comfort.
The design and flex pattern allows strong carves, creating comfort in even the choppiest conditions, effortless to ride with accessible grip even for the lighter riders, range of sizes going small to allow all riders the chance to use the UK's favourite twin tip. Said by many to be so stable and confident underfoot, it's like riding with the devil on your shoulder, enticing you to miss-behave in traditionally impossible conditions.

The result 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.
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 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
Our new Hydroflo2 shaping adds a host of features to optimize your ride for more performance without compromise. Newton explained the concepts of action and re-action and we’re not going to disagree with him.
Extended CC Rocker
If you have to choose one single factor that has more impact on wakestyle performance than any other then rocker would be at the top of then list. Featured on the ADHD, this evolved CC rocker has exaggerated lift in the tip and tail simultaneously increasing the hook into your POP and softening your landings.
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!
