CLASSIC LIGHTWIND FREERIDING

Since 2004 the name X-Cite Ride is the trademark for comfortable and sporty free riding and the current version with the ‚Plus‘ is no exception. Outstanding test reports have confirmed this. The French WIND magazine stated about the 145 that „planing in passive mode is efficient and better than average… and your success rate in jibes will go up like a rocket“. (La prise de planing en mode passif est efficace et se situe du bon côte de la moyenne… Votre taux de réussite en jibe ne peut que monter en flèche!)

The 6th X-Cite Ride generation features the latest and best traditional shape and outline concepts. As such they offer all the virtues that narrower shapes offer over those of the new modern widebody freeriders. You step on them and feel immediately at home.

They feel and ride very predictably as you know it from your previous freeride boards. Sailors – who do not like how the wide body freeride boards feel and ride or won‘t adapt their riding style – will find it much easier to exploit the full performance of the X-Cite Rides and make them much faster.

The even bottom curve and the long planing surface allow the boards to release easily. They plane super smoothly, without requiring an active style of sailing. And with the loose water position the boards accelerate to exciting speeds already in marginal winds. Being narrower, they feel at all times comfortable and super controllable even in very rough waters cushioning chop competently.

The curve in the tail outline improves the maneuverability. If you want you can carve these big lightwind boards hard and crank them into tight turns. It is a pleasure for the advanced sailor to drive the board though the turn on its rail and exit with speed. Very forgiving in the turn, they are equally well suited for the not so advanced jiber and his careful jibe approaches.

The even deck radius gives you a secure, comfortable stance. The straps are in the right position for novices and advanced riders alike and your feet will find them „with eyes closed“.

>> Great comfort and unmatched control are the essential characteristics which come paired with early planing and high performance in a traditional shape package. Thus they come well recommended for most recreational windsurfers. PLUS, they are very exciting and fun to ride, jibe and carve. Compared to the Magic Rides they require a slightly more advanced rider but in return offer a more direct and sporty feel.

Jump on them and feel the performance PLUS!

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.
