PLANE WHILE OTHERS SIT AROUND
First introduced in 2010, the name ‘Super Lightwind’ stands for a unique concept. We wanted to cover the light wind segment by offering a user-friendly board with outstanding early planing performance.
This brand new board combines the two concepts that we offered in the past. One shape covers it all, maximum light wind planing ability, easy handling and an electrifying sensation of speed. All the knowledge from the latest Super Sport, Slalom and Formula development went into the design.
The dimensions 245cm x 91cm fit exactly in between the two previous models. The perfect length for great stability and neutral water position so you can get the board onto the plane without an active sailing style. The special volume distribution is also very important as it allows you to get planing with hardly any white caps in sight.
The outline is pulled-in towards the tail but rather parallel throughout the mid-section of the board maintaining the maximum planing surface around the mast base area. The rather narrow tail makes it easy to get your feet into the straps it also gives the board a very loose feel which makes you believe that you are riding and jibing a much smaller board.
For maximum control we copied the tail shape from the latest Slalom boards. It features a winger design, which makes the deck outline wider than the bottom outline. This allows the rider to have a more outboard stance producing lots of power in light winds and maximum control and comfort on long runs. The deck shape with its constant radius offers a comfortable and powerful stance in the outboard and inboard strap positions.
For the bottom shape we chose the most efficient concept where the ‘V flow’ increases constantly towards the tail which is the same as we use in our Slalom and Formula boards. This gives the rider the sensation of flying over the water’s surface and not the feeling of pushing the board through the water.
This new shape outperforms its popular predecessors in every aspect. It will get you planing in almost no wind and delivers an unbelievable combination of totally relaxed blasting and an electric sensation of speed. Be the first one to plane at any spot – just sheet in and go. The true light wind freerider.

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.
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.
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!
