PRO EDITION in S-Glass Technology with Stringers and Carbon Rails
The boards additionally come with 2 Mini Tuttle plugs to cover the side-fin boxes when used as single-fin boards.

WAVE RIPPING ROCKETS

Shaper Werner Gnigler and pro riders Robby Swift and Ricardo Campello have worked on this new line to come up with boards which are incredibly versatile suiting the competitor on the PWA World Tour just as well as the active wave sailor looking for a powerful and fast wave toy. They cover a huge range of use and the popular 3 fin set up gives you lots of tuning options. Not just the choice of using it as a single or tri fin, but also the option to use bigger side fins and a smaller center fin. These tuning options can shift the focus of the board from an onshore rocket to a side shore playmate.

NEW SHAPE

We improved the early planing and top end control by making the boards longer. The increased water-line length facilitates early planing and provides more drive when the conditions get tough.
Their overall width and rather wide tails make them accelerate fast and go well upwind.
Landing big jumps and staying on the plane becomes a lot easier. They come with a rather flat rocker between the straps and with little tail kick. The double concave bottom runs into a progressive V towards the tail producing additional bottom curve in the rail. This and the additional outline curve between the straps makes the boards fast and turny. This and the additional outline curve between the straps makes the boards fast and turny. Whether you are looking for fast bottom turns or tight turns aiming for the pocket, they offer  it all. The thin rails bite determinedly and maintain the grip in carving and down-the-line bottom turns.
The ergonomic deck shape provides a comfortable stance and responsive rail changing. The wide stance allows the rider to tighten turns easily via the back foot and still ride the wave via the front foot. More wind and big gusts just make the board want to go faster and with this limitless speed nothing holds you back when going for massive jumps or blasting in bump and jump conditions. In moderate winds they allow you to ride with good power and speed.

SUMMARY

These fast and versatile wave boards offer a vast range of use in the Thruster set-up. Additionally, they can be fine-tuned to suit your individual style and the given conditions. They convincingly perform in all sorts of wave conditions. You will love them for their ease of use in the waves and the potential to rip the wave to pieces when wanted. With improved planing power they qualify as bump and jump high wind boards, too.

The SINGLE THRUSTERs and the FREESTYLE WAVE 77, 85, 93 and 101 in PRO Edition come with a Thruster fin set-up:
1 single fin, 2 Side Fins and 2 Mini Tuttle plugs.

For single-fin use we recommend a 2cm bigger main fin (not included) for the same conditions and to insert the 2 plugs to cover the Mini Tuttle Boxes.


[All FREESTYLE WAVE models in FWS come as single fin boards without sidefin boxes.]

This fin comes with the board. The boards additionally come with 2 Side Fins (Thruster set-up) + 2 covers for the Mini Tuttle Box (to cover the Mini Tuttle Boxes when used as single-fin board).
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!
