WIN AGAIN

JP introduced the first Formula board in fall 2009.
In 2010 and 2011 this board won the IFCA Formula World titles  twice (mens class: Antoine Albeau). It also took several other titles in 2011, like:

JP Formula World Champions 2011:
Men’s: Antoine Albeau – FRA 192
Women’s: Marion Lepert – USA 143
Youth: Sebastian Kornum – DEN 24
Grand Master’s: Torben Kornum – DEN 2
JP Formula Vice World Champions 2011:
Master’s: Micah Buzianis – USA 34
Youth: Mateus Isaac – BRA 767
Grand Master’s: Carlos Isaac – BRA 768

When starting with the development of the board for season 2012 and 2013 we always kept in mind that a formula board has to work in all possible conditions around the world and for riders of various weight classes and sailing styles.

We tried very hard to make one board that covers all conditions and riders but after various prototypes we discovered that some boards have a clear edge over others in certain environments. So, offering 2 boards makes sense, to ensure that every racer can choose the board that will fit his size, style and location.

FORMULA POWER

A powerful board that creates instant lift and gets you planing in the lightest winds. The power generated from this board shape is ideal for lighter winds and gusty racing conditions that are often found on lakes and in harbor type locations. In those areas you often have to follow wind shifts and need to go up and downwind instantly in the most radical, possible angles.

A scoop rocker line with a longer flat section in combination with a low nose entry results in a longer rail length which creates good grip and a powerful upwind lift.

Made for riders who like to push hard and go upwind in the highest possible angle.

FORMULA SPEED

This board is a combination of our slalom and formula designs to create a smooth easy sailing formula board that gets all of its race winning desire from speed. It especially works well in open sea conditions where the wind is more consistent and the rider finds the space on the race course to head upwind at speed to round the upwind mark first.  On the way down this board is by far the fastest – easy to sail and glides over chop without resistance. Its control is just unbelievable.

The higher nose entry and shorter flat section make the board ride very freely and fast. That loose ride also makes it easy to control.

A board which suits the rider who prefers to sail a slightly less radical upwind angle but wants maximum speed and control.

SHAPE

Both boards follow the same basic specification in width and length. The difference lies in the scoop rocker line as described above.

Both boards are equipped with a strong V in the nose area combined with angled tuck bevels, resulting in a comfortable forgiving ride. A smooth entry is a must when overtaking swell or chop fully powered on the downwind course.  Catapults would be catastrophic!

Sharp parallel edges all the way back to the cut-out generate a long rail line which transforms the lift created by the fin into instant upwind drive.

Full rails in combination with the race deck under the front foot allow the rider to push hard and stay connected to the board at all times.

The concave deck shape in the mast base area brings the rig closer to the water’s surface and makes it easier to sail the board flat and in a constant angle.

SUMMARY

Two boards tested and approved by Micah Buzianis and the current Formula World Champion Antoine Albeau and Pieter Bijl – shaped by Werner Gnigler. These two boards cover all conditions and riders and are both ready to win – the choice is yours.

Footstrap

Straps incl. 2 screws.
Rounded plastic belts, pre-formed, comfortable shape. Adjustable plastic plates for width adjustment.

 

SPECIAL FOOTSTRAPS PRE-SHAPED

Ideal arch shape to perfectly fit your feet. Thick neoprene cover for great comfort.

ADJUSTABLE WIDTH

Adjustable in width not just in length as all other straps on the market. By simply turning the plastic plate by 180 degrees, the width of the footstraps can be switched from 14,2cm to 13,0cm. Great for slalom sailors who need a tight connection to the board and for youngsters or women with smaller feet.

Adjust your Foot Strap SIZE for very large foot strap sizes, change the Anti Twist plate for the outside position (recommended for foot size 44 and up)

  • remove the screw
  • remove the Anti Twist plate
  • insert the Anti Twist plate into the holes of the profile belt
  • put hte top plastic part back on the pins
  • insert the screw
  • adjust the size of the foot strap to fit your foot

5 Steps for a NARROW Foot Strap:

  • remove the screw
  • pull off the top plastic part
  • rotate the top plastic part 180°
  • put it back on the pins
  • insert screw and mount the strap

 

3D Footstrap

incl. 2 screws. Comfortable padding, changeable to asymmetrical shape when the strap is not centered – very comfortable!

Less wetted area and volume in the tail for increased control, better top speed,
and easier jibing.

NOSE PROTECTOR

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!

LIMITED FINISH – LESS IS MORE

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.

AIR VALVE

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!

STORAGE

Store your board in mild (neither hot, nor cold) 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.
