FAST WAVE ALL-ROUND 

This has been our best selling wave line. Because of its overall wave performance, control and versatility it can be used anywhere at anytime by anybody.

British WINDSURF confirms that it is “…very fast! And combined with control comes the ability to sail in an explosive, expressive manner”. French WIND appreciated its performance in side and side onshore.

The bottom includes a moderate version of the Radical’s deep double concaves and therefore features similar virtues: it is JP’s fastest wave all-rounder in a classic shape. The progressive Vee towards the tail results in a rather rockered rail line which – together with the additional curve in the outline – enhances the overall maneuverability. The speed it carries smoothly into the turn, its precise carving and instant response makes it shine in powerful side offshore conditions as well as it suits onshore waves.

Compared to the Slate, this all-rounder has a gunny appearance resulting in an easy, very reliable, traditional wave board feel. Its predictability and control in a wide range of conditions are its strengths!

The Thruster Quad is a fast and exciting board which builds up speed rapidly and feels lively and exciting. The speed potential comes from the flat bottom line inside the concaves under the foot straps lifting the board onto the plane early and accelerating rapidly. You can exploit its velocity in all water states to launch off every wave to insane height and thus it even qualifies as bump and jump high wind board.

This season the boards come with a bigger tail fin resulting in earlier planing and more drive. The additional rear tail fin boxes allow to experiment with a quad setup for additional control and tighter turns.

>> This fast wave all-rounder can be tuned to suit all wave conditions. It offers a huge range of use, is great fun in small waves and also performs in big rollers. It provides the speed to launch off every ramp explosively and to fly seriously high.


The boards additionally come with plugs to cover all fin boxes.
PRO EDITION in S-Glass Technology with stringers and basalt rails.

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.

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.
