They combine the easy handling of a super stable beginner board with the performance of a large freeride board. Excellent beginner and family boards, also offering fun to the advanced rider.
They have comfortable EVA decks and lots of different footstrap options. This allows you to slowly move from an easy cruising setup, to a sportier stance out on the rail of the board. They all come with indestructible, detachable fiberglass nose protectors.
The 205 and 180 are simply perfect beginner boards. After only a few hours everybody will be sailing back and forth. The 145 and 160 have a wide range of use: From beginner boards for kids and lightweights to sporty cruisers for more advanced riders.
INFLATABLE Drop Stitch Technology
This inflatable version of a Funster offers the same basic concept like its hard board siblings but has great advantages. It can be rolled up and fits into the backpack it comes with which means that you won't need a roof rack for transport and no big garage for storage. It's also considerably lighter than any hardboard of this size.The high tech drop stitch technology makes the board so stiff that you will easily get it planing but the surface itself is soft enough so that beginners won't hurt themselves when falling on it.
Instead of a daggerboard it comes with an additional center fin which gives the board some directional stability to help avoid drifting and helps to go upwind. Being longer than the normal Funsters also helps with going upwind due to its longer waterline. This board offers so much fun and is a great family toy.
Since 2004 the first JP PRO Edition boards have a (SUPER) LIMITED FINISH. By reducing the amount of paint (sanding off) the weight is decreased. Consequently, the boards have a custom look with certain "imperfections" in the paint, thus the material below might shine through. Sometimes they even look as if repaired. This is also true for the Full Wood Sandwich boards as they now feature a LIMITED FINISH, too. You won't find two boards exactly the same. We believe this is worth it as the weight reduction is substantial and there's no loss of durability or strength.
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
