Hey Legends,

I just picked up my new JS Monsta Box HYFI. It has a made in Thailand decal on the tail. Does anyone if JS is now having their boards manufactures OS these days? A bit bummed as I wanted an Australian made board

I would have refused to take it
JS do still make them on the Goldy.

JS pu boards made on the goldy. All Hyfi boards made in Thailand.

Strapper does the same, makes boards in Vicco but boards in the rack are a mixture of Thai made and local. Was pointed out to me on a Mal the other day, I'd say it's the same with short boards. Just that little sticker down the tail, easy to miss.

Eel is right. All their PU boards are made on the GC but the epoxy boards are made in Thailand due to the cost of labour i would assume. Firewire come from Thailand too and i would assume that more and more boards are going to come from there going forward.
