SPORTY, EASY, X-CITING

The name X-Cite Ride became a trademark for comfortable and sporty freeriding. Outstanding test reports have confirmed this. The X-Cite Ride PLUS range still follows this concept. With the introduction of the super easy Magic Ride boards we decided to slightly re-position the X-Cite Rides and make them even sportier. So the PLUS in the name stands for improved overall performance and for the fact that Generation 6 is sportier than ever whilst still being easy to handle.

SHAPE

They merge easy sailing with an exciting riding sensation, top performance and great maneuverability. They have a rather parallel outline in the midsection. This results in a bigger planing surface lifting the board up onto the plane quickly and effortlessly. It also improves the stability when tacking or non-planing.

The special bottom curve allows the board to release easily creating this exciting feeling, a stunning riding sensation and the increased sportiness. The X-Cite Ride Plus boards outperform their predecessors in all these aspects as well as being faster. Proven shape features such as the double concave front and mid section in combination with a soft tuck line provide the comfort expected from an X-Cite Ride.

The even deck radius results in a comfortable stance and the thick foot pads complete the comfort package. Towards the tail, the outline is pulled-in which results in additional outline curve which helps to improve the maneuverability. Once the rail is set it carves a smooth stable arc, keeping plenty of speed for the jibe exit. You can jibe these boards at any radius you like.

SUMMARY

Sporty, fast and lively. They offer more performance than ever and still provide all of the proven X-Cite Ride attributes like easy riding and control. PLUS, they are very exciting and fun to ride, jibe and carve. Compared to the Magic Rides they require a slightly more advanced rider but in return offer a more direct and sporty feel.  Jump on them and feel the performance PLUS!

Great for slalom sailors who need a tight connection to the board and for youngsters or women with smaller feet.

  • remove the screw
  • remove the Anti Twist plate
  • insert the Anti Twist plate into the holes of the profile belt
  • put the 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

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!

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!
