QUAND RADICALITÉ RIME AVEC SIMPLICITÉ 

Le magazine WIND apprécie ce flotteur pour sa « réactivité » et sa radicalité « dans tous types de conditions ». Quant au magazine britannique WINDSURF, il affirme que la fluidité du carving et la réactivité de la planche semblent presque surnaturels, ajoutant qu’il s‘agit d‘une véritable révélation en conditions stables side-off.
Morgan Noireaux a choisi la Radical Thruster Quad pour la deuxième année consécutive à l’Aloha Classic, rendez-vous incontournable wave down the line.

La planche se distingue par le double concave bien creusé de sa carène. La partie la plus creusée est juste sous les straps, créant de longues zones de plat pour le planing. Associés aux wingers, qui élargissent légèrement la zone de plat, ces concaves améliorent l‘accélération et permettent d‘atteindre des vitesses surprenantes. Vous allez apprécier la sensation de nervosité et de légèreté du flotteur due à la faible surface en contact avec l’eau.

Le vé amortit la navigation et crée une courbe de carène bien ronde au niveau des rails. Grâce à cette accroche inégalée des rails, la planche permet d’effectuer des virages serrés. Elle répond instantanément à la moindre sollicitation du rideur. Les planchistes wave débutants interpréteront cette réactivité comme de la nervosité. En revanche, les rideurs wave avancés adoreront cette vivacité, tout comme le fait de pouvoir passer très rapidement d’un rail à l‘autre. La Radical excelle par conditions side à side off. Plus le vent se renforce, plus les vagues sont hautes et plus elle développe ses performances.

Ses forces ? Avant tout, le sentiment de n’avoir absolument aucune limite en navigation. Le flotteur garde de la vitesse dans les bottom turn et permet de garder le control pour pouvoir taper la lèvre à l’endroit parfait.

Les planches sont fournies en quad pour une meilleur accroche dans les grosses conditions et une meilleure tenue dans les carving en surf.
Le boîtier d‘aileron central arrière permet une configuration en thruster et peut être utilisé pour dégager plus de puissance en side shore et par vent faible ou pour obtenir un meilleur contrôle dans des vagues vraiment très hautes. C‘est la configuration préférée de Jason Polakow pour la grosse vague et d’Antoine Martin pour les événements européens de la PWA.

>> Nos pro rideurs attestent des performances inégalées de la planche en navigation down the line. Vous allez être scotché par la vitesse à laquelle vous allez attaquer les carves dans les top turns et les bottoms turns. La planche offre l‘adhérence, le contrôle et la vivacité nécessaires dans tous vos moves wave. Elle offre au rideur une navigation énergique, lui permettant de réaliser les turns dont il a toujours rêvé. Tout rideur wave avancé l‘adorera et y trouvera une alliée fidèle pour progresser.
Lancez-vous et améliorez radicalement votre nav’ !


Les planches sont livrées avec les caches des boîtiers pour une utilisation sans aileron. PRO EDITION en fibre de verre S-Glass avec stringers et rails en basalte.

The RADICAL THRUSTER QUADs, WAVE SLATEs and THRUSTER QUADs feature 5 fin boxes:

  • 3 Slot Boxes with 2 covers and
  • 2 side fin Mini Tuttle boxes with 2 covers
The boards are equipped with the fins which suit their character best. Still, you can acquire additional spare fins to trim the boards according your requirements or the given conditions. So, each board can be used in every possible setup: quad, thruster, twinser or even single-fin. To cover the same range of use, the main thruster- or the 2 twinser fins should be 2 cm bigger than the quad fins, and the single-fin should bigger again - minimum 2 but up to 5 cm.

Advantages of each setup:

SINGLE: "Drive", directional feel, good planing.

THRUSTER: The maneuverable version of the single fin setup with better control. The best on- to side-shore wave riding option overall.

QUAD: the best side-offshore down-the-line wave riding option overall

TWINSER: Livelier version to the quad setup.

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

HOW TO adapt your footstraps to large feet or sailing with boots

Adjust your Foot Strap SIZE for very large foot strap sizes, change the Anti Twist plate for the outside position - recommended for foot size 11 (US) / 10 (UK) and bigger.
  • remove the screw
  • remove the Anti Twist plate
  • insert the bottom part of the Anti Twist plate into the outside holes of the belt
  • put the top plastic part back on the pins
  • insert the screw
  • adjust the size of the foot strap to fit your foot
 

HOW TO adapt your footstraps to small feet:

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

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.

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.

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!

NOSE PROTECTOR

UNI-Noseprotector-BLACK-neu02 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 6 pieces: 2 side parts (one left and one right), and 4 connections in sizes Small, Medium, Large and "Wave Slate".

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.
