LA VAGUE DANS UNE NOUVELLE DIMENSION

La seconde génération du Wave Slate, ce flotteur qui a éveillé la curiosité et suscité l’intérêt du monde du windsurf, fait son entrée sur le marché. Nous avons développé trois nouveaux shapes pour 2018.
Dans certaines conditions, la première génération aidait le rideur à progresser. Le shape compact permettait d’effectuer de nouveaux moves et offrait une nouvelle sensation dans les vagues. Le concept du Wave Slate est toujours conçu autour d’un outline parallèle, cheville ouvrière de cette gamme de flotteurs. Ce type d’outline réduit la trainée et augmente la portance, ce qui permet d‘aller plus vite et de déjauger rapidement. Par ailleurs, la taille réduite de la planche rend très naturels les virages serrés.

La répartition du volume a été étudiée au millimètre et offre à la planche une grande stabilité, même avant de partir au planing. Il a donc été possible de réduire encore la longueur et la largeur par rapport aux modèles précédents. Le ‘swing weight’ est plus centré, offrant des rotations et des changements de direction plus rapides.
L’objectif est d‘élargir la plage d‘utilisation et d‘offrir des performances exceptionnelles dans toutes les conditions. Nous sommes fiers de pouvoir dire qu‘il s‘agit de la meilleure planche de vagues polyvalente de JP, de tous les temps.

Nous avons diminué la largeur du nez et du tail. Le nez plus étroit associé à un rocker plus prononcé à l‘avant rassure sur la vague, dans les virages, ou dans les sauts sur le line up. Le tail plus court rend le flotteur plus agile dans la vague, et il est très facile de partir à la verticale.
La carène est composée de différents vés et concaves. Le nez et l‘avant de la planche forment un V très marqué pour une pénétration dans l’eau tout en douceur. Entre les straps, nous avons utilisé un simple concave profond qui crée une zone plane. L‘écoulement de l’eau s’accélère grâce au rétrécissement du concave, ce qui augmente la portance et permet de partir au planing plus rapidement et de gagner en vitesse. Pour le tail, nous avons utilisé un vé plat qui évacue parfaitement l’eau.
Le rocker de la nouvelle Wave Slate est d‘une manière générale plus plat vers la ligne centrale que la génération précédente. Cela permet de partir au planing plus tôt et de gagner en vitesse. Le vé plus marqué et l‘outline plus étroit au niveau du nez et du tail donnent à ce flotteur un rail plus courbé par rapport à la première génération. En combinant de ces caractéristiques permet d’obtenir deux lignes de rocker complètement différentes.
Grâce à ligne centrale assez plate, la planche gagne en vitesse et en rapidité de déjaugeage. Une fois la carre dans l‘eau, la ligne de rail courbée prend le pas, permettant une manoeuvrabilité exceptionnelle. Cette forme de carène est souvent utilisée pour les planches de surf et offre des performances largement reconnues. Résultat : le ressenti d’une planche de surf avec les performances d’une planche de windsurf moderne.

Les flotteurs sont équipés en thruster. Toutefois, la carène est dotée de deux boîtiers mini tuttle et de trois slot box. Ainsi, chaque rideur peut adapter la configuration du flotteur à son style de navigation.


Les planches sont livrées avec les caches des boîtiers pour une utilisation sans aileron.

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.

Footstrap-2014

Comfortable footstrap incl. 2 screws. Anti-twist system. Adjustable plastic plates for width adjustment.

 

ADJUSTABLE WIDTH

Adjustable in width not just in length. By simply turning the plastic plate by 180 degrees, the width of the foostraps can be reduced by 0.6cm (one plate) respectively 1.2cm (both plates). 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.
