READY TO RACE 

Designed for the toughest slalom competitions in the world, they are incredibly fast! The control and comfort of these boards are the key to top-speed. They impress with their aggressiveness in jibes and the quick acceleration out of the turn.
Slalom board development never stops. Throughout the year prototypes are tested at various locations and World Cup venues to ensure that new boards excel their predecessors in all conditions. The overall performance of our 2017 boards is already so high that we only need to introduce 2 new shapes for 2018 – a totally new 71 and 85.

The base design of the JP Slalom boards is a short compact shape with a rather parallel outline which maximizes the planing surface to lift the boards onto the plane instantly.

The special tail cut-outs create two outlines:
• The deck outline is wider – enabling the rider to push hard against the fin – resulting in better acceleration and a looser, faster ride.
• The narrower bottom outline reduces the wetted surface and lowers the drag. You basically ride on a smaller board. This narrow bottom tail creates a lot of outline curve which allows the rider to trim the board perfectly and steer it with little effort.

For more flotation and better acceleration of the two new boards, the depth of the cut-outs was reduced: The 85 and 71 will feel more powerful at the wind limit.

The bottom features a combination of a flat mid section, with Vee further forward and towards the tail. The flat section between the straps produces additional lift which lets the board fly.

The tail Vee makes it easy to initiate your jibes and opens up the rail line, releasing pressure and activating the curvier rail rocker when turning or jibing.

Speeding in chop becomes more controllable since the rails don’t catch and the board flies effortlessly.

Due to the ergonomic deck shapes, the rider can push hard and feel very connected.
The bigger sizes have fuller rails for better leverage while the rails of the smaller boards become rounder to get in and out the straps easily.

The concave deck reduces the swing weight and lowers the rig position for improved control.

The 3 high wind boards 55, 60 and 62 not only cater for intense Slalom racing but are also perfectly suited for Nicolas Warembourg’s favorite Long Distance Race: the DEFI Wind.

NEW:
• All Slalom boards come with double hole footstrap plugs to use four screws with every strap for perfect connection between rider and board.
• All fin boxes (except the Slalom 55) are specially reinforced Medium Tuttle Boxes and can take big fins and now even foils with a Tuttle and Deep Tuttle base.

Cut-Outs reduce the wetted area and volume in the tail which –in return– increases control, improves top speed and makes jibing easier. Now, the combination of 2 cut-outs makes this concept more efficient.

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.

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
 

3D FOOTSTRAP

Strap incl. 2 screws.

Comfortable padding, changeable to asymmetrical shape when the strap is not centered - very comfortable!
