rounder with the advantages of the compact, versatile Slate. JP’s fastest, liveliest and most manoeuvrable and great fun all-water toys ever. They accelerate in the flats, fly over chop and carve into wave faces. You’ll simply have your best time on the water – easy!
British WINDSURF states that it is “rewarding to use in any sea state, but particularly around a coastal break in a bump and jump role… With early planing ease, accessible speed and manoeuvre control in just one setting, it offers class defining plug-and-play performance that both flatters and inspires.”
German SURF thinks that „chop is absorbed very smoothly, even in real strong wind and at top speed. French WIND confirms it is “once again a reference of freewave versatility” and that “in the waves, you can surf the JP with your eyes closed.”
PLANCHEMAG comments that JP’s “bump & jump king” is “easy to sail for a big audience and radical enough for the most demanding”.
It was said before and has to be pointed out again: The Freestyle Wave concept is the ideal option for 99% of coastal-sailing recreational windsurfers. If you are not sure which board line would suit you best, then don’t look any further. If just in theory, the Freestyle Wave would not work perfectly for the given conditions as they come, you still can tune it to perfection! It’s an ideal all-round high wind board for both, blasting and bump&jump sailing. It also shines as a powerful, all-round wave board for lighter winds, heavier sailors or difficult conditions and then is great fun especially for huge jumps and fast carves in side to side onshore conditions.
The direct feel derives from the reduced swing weight of the short, compact shape. The outline is parallel in the mid-section creating a big area for early planing and stability. The tail is rather narrow to maintain control on fast runs over choppy water. The FSW is agile, quick to respond and its rails bite hard into small waves without getting stuck.
The domed deck grants a comfortable stance for all foot strap positions. The deck shape also provides perfect board control mixed with readiness to respond.
Offering all the traditional Freestyle Wave virtues, they now are even more agile and fun. They are fast, super comfortable and provide confidence to push to the board’s limits. Suited for freestyle as well, they love to carve fast, drawn-out turns in all waters, flatwater, chop and waves. They cover it all and are simply the best JP Freestyle Waves – ever!
All FREESTYLE WAVE boards in PRO Edition come with a thruster fin setup:
1 big FREESTYLE WAVE tail fin, 2 side fins and 2 Mini Tuttlebox plugs.
You can also use these boards in single-fin setup. For use in the same wind range, just cover the Mini Tuttle boxes with the plugs and use a 2cm bigger main fin (not included) than you would for thruster-use.
[All FREESTYLE WAVE models in Full Wood Sandwich come as single fin boards without sidefin boxes.]
ULTIMATE WAVE, WAVE SLATE, YOUNG GUN RADICAL THRUSTER QUAD 6 + 4 mm = 10mm pads in the heel area. Great shock absorbing effect - very comfortable. Your heels are higher on the board for more power and control on your forefoot. Initiating turns is really easy.
FREESTYLE WAVE, FREESTYLE, SUPER RIDE, MAGIC RIDE, SUPER SPORT, SUPER LIGHTWIND, YOUNG GUN FREESTYLE 6 + 4 mm = 10mm pads in the actual standing area provide unbelievable shock absorption and comfort.
Comfortable footstrap incl. 2 screws. Anti-twist system. Adjustable plastic plates for width adjustment.
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.
