SPORTY DAGGERBOARD RIDE 

They combine the stability a beginner needs with the sporty planing feel an advanced rider wants. Contrary to wide body beginner boards like the Funsters, the Explorers feature rather narrow and long hulls. As soon as you master the basics of windsurfing they lift up to a glide in light winds instantly offering that ‘Funboard feeling’. Once planing they feel fast, sporty and alive.

Their comfortable EVA decks have various footstrap options from an easy inboard cruising setup to a sportier stance out on the rail of the board. They all come with an integrated nose handle.

They work great as beginner boards and shine with their enormous range of use, progressively unleashing their sporty potential the better you get! Play, learn, cruise, glide and have fun in all conditions. They cover it all – true all-round funboards.

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.
