Since more that 12 years the name X-Cite Ride is the trademark for comfortable and sporty free riding and the current version with the ‘Plus' is no exception. Outstanding test reports have confirmed this. The French WIND magazine made the 135 their test winner because it can be sailed “with eyes closed”. And the German SURF likes the 125 because it “planes particularly effortlessly and you won't notice a planing barrier”.
The 6th X-Cite Ride generation features the latest and best traditional shape and outline concepts. As such they offer all the virtues that narrower shapes offer over those of the new modern widebody freeriders. You step on them and feel immediately at home.
They feel and ride very predictable as you know it from your previous freeride boards. Sailors – who do not like how the wide body freeride boards feel and ride or won't adapt their riding style – will find it much easier to exploit the full performance of the X-Cite Rides and make them much faster.
The even bottom curve and the long planing surface allow the boards to release easily. They plane super smoothly, without requiring an active style of sailing. And with the loose water position the boards accelerate to exciting speeds already in marginal winds. Being narrower, they feel at all times comfortable and super controllable even in very rough waters cushioning chop competently. The curve in the tail outline improves the maneuverability. If you want you can carve these big lightwind boards hard and crank them into tight turns. It is a pleasure for the advanced sailor to drive the board though the turn on its rail and exit with speed. Very forgiving in the turn, they are equally well suited for the not so advanced jiber and his careful jibe approaches.
The even deck radius gives you a secure, comfortable stance. The straps are in the right position for novices and advanced riders alike and the feet will find them “with eyes closed”

Store your board in mild (neither hot, nor cold; not exposed to sunlight), dry places ! Winter storage: non-freezing (constantly above +5 C).
Note: Avoid storage in closed, damp conditions like in a wet boardbag! So, after windsurfing and safe transport put the board out of its bag and let both dry separately - otherwise your board will suffer from osmosis and blisters (bubbles) will show up on the boards surface. And your bag might start to smell.
We highly recommend to open the air valve screw when the board is not used. Reason: Due to high pressure differences the sandwich construction suffers from high stress and can delaminate long term from the board's core. This will result in a soft spot and start absorbing water. Pressure differences are caused by high temperature variations or other pressure variations from e.g. aero planes. Do not forget to close the air vent before going on the water!
Damages caused by impacts are not covered under JP-Australia's limited warranty. Therefore, JP-Australia highly recommends the use of a nose protector.
Especially recommended for novices and everybody, who wants to protect the board nose.
The universal protector: Made of EVA, the UNI NOSE PROTECTOR is a very light yet strong protection. It is easy to handle as it is simply glued onto the nose.
The set consists of 5 pieces: 2 side parts (one left and one right), and 3 connections in sizes Small, Medium and Large.
By combining the two sides with the appropriate connection at the front, noses of almost all standard board sizes and shapes can be covered efficiently.
This makes it an universal protector not only for JP boards but for most boards available on the market.
Please note: The uni nose protector is not made for the use on demo boards or in windsurfing centers, but for private use only!
