EPOXY SANDWICH Technology

YOUNG GUN

We developed the Young Gun boards with the special needs of the new generation in mind. They come with a reduced stance width and a shorter distance between footstrap plugs for more narrow feet and also with many different footstrap options for youngsters of all sizes and sailing levels. They work for young guns up to around 50 kilos.

QUAD

A 55 liter version of Kauli Seadi’s and Jason Polakow’s latest development together with Werner Gnigler – our famous shaper. Approved by Cody Young (best surfer in his age group on Maui). Radical in feeling and at the same time easy to handle. A wave board that works from the shores of Maui to South Africa and anywhere in between. For wave riding young guns and small, light women.

FREESTYLE

Youp Schmit our two times PWA Youth World Champion has developed this board with Werner. It offers unbelievable pop and is made for the latest and sickest moves. The weapon of choice for any Young Gun looking to be the next world champ!

 

85

The All-In-One board for the advanced youngster. As soon as you have grown out of the Young Gun 115 you are ready for the 85. A small version of the Freestyle Wave boards that works for freeride, bump & jump, freestyle and waves.

115

Made for young beginners and youngsters, who want to get planing, get into the straps and start learning some tricks.

  • Fun from the very first minute
  • Very stable
  • You will be sailing back and forth happily on your first day
  • Very easy to tack and jibe
  • Progresses together with you

DOUBLE HEEL PADS

Twinser Quad, Single Thruster, Young Gun Quad, Young Gun 85 6 + 4 mm = 10mm pads in the heel area Great shock absorbing effect – very comfortable. Your heels are higher on the boardfor more power and control on your forefoot. Initiating turns is really easy.    

DOUBLE COMFORT PADS

Freestyle Wave, Freestyle, All Ride, X-Cite Ride, Super Sport, Young Gun Freestyle  6 + 4 mm = 10mm pads in the actual standing area provide unbelievable shock absorption and comfort. Even after sailing in super choppy conditions your joints will not hurt anymore.

Footstrap

Straps incl. 2 screws. Rounded plastic belts, pre-formed, comfortable shape. Adjustable plastic plates for width adjustment. Footstrap-2014  

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

All-Ride, Funster, Young Gun 85 and Young Gun 115

  • Straight rocker in the channel to keep your momentum through jibes and for early planing and high speed
  • Increased bottom curve to the left and right of the channel to make the boards loose and responsive
  • Channel edges for additional grip in carving jibes and going upwind.
  • Increased V in the channel for great control at high speed.
 SET-UP A

The set-up for the very first hours and days. The bigger fin in front and the smaller fin in the rear make the board very stable and still easy to turn for the first tacks and jibes. There are no straps on the board yet.

SET-UP B

After the first few days the Youngsters want to experience real windsurfing – planing. The smaller fin in the front still gives some stability while the bigger fin in the rear gets the board planing early and easy. It is now also time to get into the straps.

SET-UP

C Soon, stability is not such an issue anymore. Now it is time to fill the front powerbox with the power base and put the bigger fin in the rear. When the Youngster is used to this fin set-up he can consider moving to strap set-up C (straps further back, single strap in the rear and the two front straps closer together).

SET-UP D

The real Young Guns will consider first freestyle moves shortly after they reached level or set-up C. When they are ready for that it is time to put the smaller fin into the rear powerbox – to get better maneuverability. It is now the Youngster's choice, if she or he wants to leave the straps in the more freestyle oriented strap set-up C or if they go for the performance oriented strap set-up D (double rear strap, front strap closer to the rail). The strap set up D obviously can also be used with the bigger fin in the rear (fin set up C), when focusing on planing.

 

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!
