WE ENJOY RACING AND IT SHOWS

The new Slalom board generation offers again two board sizes for each wind range. Depending on your preferred sailing style and weight you can chose the perfect board for you. Those who prefer more powerful and slightly wider boards will go for the bigger size and those who look more for maximum top speed and control will chose the smaller one. It does not always mean that the big, strong and heavy guys will use the bigger boards. It is simply a matter of taste and preferred sailing style.
Micah Buzianis, for instance, who is currently fitter than ever and has lost 5kg will most probably use the 59, 66 and 80 in the 2013 PWA World Cups as he generally prefers rather smaller than bigger boards.

In general these new boards are substantially easier to ride and control than the last generation. The boards offer great early planing and acceleration, blistering speed and good jibing for advanced riders and not just for big and super strong guys.

Today the level in Slalom racing is so high that the smallest margins can decide about success. Tuning the equipment became more critical over the years. The key to success is making the boards fast in various conditions without having to change the trim whenever the wind and water situation changes.

On one hand the boards need to “fly” and feel very loose in light wind. But once overpowered control becomes the deciding factor.
To master these goals we developed shapes which allow the rider to easily find the perfect board angle in both ends of the riding spectrum.

SHAPE
The highwind boards (56, 59) as well as the mediumwind boards (66, 68) come with double concaves to supply maximum control even in very overpowered and choppy conditions.
The two lightwind boards (80, 84) feature a flat V throughout for maximum lift and lightwind performance.
Additional curve in the outline between the straps in combination with an increasing V flow towards the tail gives the boards the ability to work in such a wide wind range.
This mixed with the tail cut outs produces perfect water release. The boards “fly” in light winds and release all the tail pressure in high winds.
The boards stay flat on the water’s surface and convert the power produced by the rig effortless into top speed.
The new Slalom range (except for the 56 which has a proven, unchanged shape) comes with a new generation “race deck” and volume flow. We reduced the board thickness from the mast base forward. This allowed us to add thickness in the foot strap area resulting in a more even domed deck. Even pressure on both feet help the rider to stay connected at all times.
This makes high speed runs less exhausting and easier to find the right foot position during jibes.

SUMMARY
You can chose from two boards each per wind range (high, medium and light wind) depending on your size and strength but mostly on your preferred sailing style. We love to race and want you to enjoy it as well.

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!

set-up

symmetrical – for rear center strap
asymmetrical – for front straps and rear straps on the rail

Super Sport, Super Lightwind, Formula, Slalom

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


black outline: conventional shape | red area: new race deck shape | blue outline: old race deck shape

The raised area underneath your forefoot and toes provides unknown comfort and control when going at full speed. You easily stay connected to the board no matter how strong the wind gets.You never feel like you are getting pulled out of your straps – no need to bend up your toes to stay in the straps.

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.
