BOARDS WHICH PROGRESS WITH YOU

The Explorers combine the stability a beginner needs with the sporty planing feel an advanced rider wants to enjoy. Contrary to wide body beginner boards like the Funsters, the Explorers feature rather narrow and long hulls.

As soon as you slightly advance and master the basics of windsurfing the Explorer lifts up to a glide in light winds instantly offering that ‘Funboard feeling’. Once planing it is and feels much faster, more sporty and alive than wide body beginner boards. With this board touring, exploring and enjoying the coastline is a great experience.

They deliver outstanding performance – considering they are also great beginner boards. When planing, they almost feel as sporty as an X-Cite Ride, lifting on their tail and powering off their fin. A great sensation especially for a board that comes with a daggerboard.

They are sporty and lively! Even real carving jibes are possible and are great fun.

On wide body boards the daggerboard basically only reduces the sideway drift. On the more narrow Explorers, the power of the daggerboard can lift the windward rail, providing an exciting feeling. This makes it a lot more fun to ride with the daggerboard in light winds and is more efficient to go upwind.

They come with many foot strap options for every rider level, starting from the foot strap beginner to the advanced rider who is already able to use the straps and push the board to accelerate.
Because of the retractable daggerboard and the various foot strap options everyone will find the perfect set-up. The volume is evenly spread-out and gives plenty of stability for first time windsurfers.

The built-in nose handle in combination with the strap handle at the tail make carrying the board really easy. The soft EVA deck makes them ideal for every member of the family.

SUMMARY

It fulfills its duties as beginner board and shines with its enormous range of use, progressively unleashing its sporty potential the better you get! Play, learn, cruise, glide and have fun in all conditions. This board covers it all – a true all-round funboard.

STORAGE 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.   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! DOWNLOAD: NoseProtector_Uni_Manual.pdf 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 airvalveWe 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!
