IL MIGLIOR WAVE ALL-ROUND

Il successo dei Wave Slate continua grazie al fatto che questi wave compatti impressionano per la loro agilità e affidabilità. Sono veloci, planano facilmente e sono molto efficienti nel generare e mantenere la velocità, rendendo molto divertenti e vivaci le uscite nelle onde medio-piccole! Questi shape All-Round hanno un enorme range di utilizzo e sono molto divertenti su ogni tipo di onda.

La rivista inglese WINDSURF dichiara che “ci si sente a proprio agio in ogni condizione, con la dovuta velocità nelle condizioni cross-offshore e con la facilità di passaggio da bordo a bordo per le condizioni cross-onshore. Il Wave Slate continua ad accelerare con un’estrema sensazione di agilità e reattività, pur mantenendosi perfettamente controllabile”. La Tedesca SURF pensa che “la presa sui bordi è perfetta: la tavola curva nei bottom come una lama calda nel burro. Un potenziale enorme nelle tipiche condizioni wave Europee – In fatto di salti e planata il livello di questo shape è decisamente alto.

È una delle tavole più efficienti e controllabili” stando a quanto riporta la rivista Francese PLANCHEMAG. L’altra rivista transalpina WIND ne è convinta, “…dimostra chiaramente la sua polivalenza. Il Wave Slate ruota molto facilmente facendo perno sul piede posteriore”.

L’outline parallelo è alla base di questo shape. Una soluzione che riduce l’attrito e incrementa il lift e quindi risulta veloce e molto planante. Insieme all’efficiente distribuzione dei volumi l’outline parallelo garantisce una grande stabilità e questo ci ha permesso di accorciarla rispetto ai modelli precedenti. La ridotta lunghezza rende naturali le rotazioni molto strette ed è alla base di quella sensazione di compattezza che si sente in aria. Il baricentro è molto centrato aumentando la velocità di rotazione e i cambi di direzione. Inoltre l’estrema ridotta lunghezza è il massimo per le sezioni ripide e nelle onde piccole, perché non si rischia di essere rallentati.

La seconda generazione di Wave Slate propone in carena un concetto che è largamente usato nei surf da onda e combina due linee di rocker totalmente diverse. Da una parte c’è una zona piatta lungo la parte centrale per avere un importante spunto di inizio planata e buone prestazioni generali elevate, unite ad un ottimo livello di controllo. Dall’altra troviamo una significativa V e un outline molto stretto a poppa e prua per creare una curvatura significativa sui bordi e quindi una buona presa nelle curve. Un risultato che combina la manovrabilità di un surf da onda con le prestazioni che ci si aspetta di trovare in una moderna tavola da windsurf.

La prua stretta e la V accentuata in carena con il rocker addizionale in avanti permettono di avere uno shape che sta molto alto sull’acqua, aumentando la sensazione di sicurezza durante le curve, sul dorso dell’onda ma anche nei salti. Tra le strap, il profondo singolo concavo incanala e accelera il flusso d’acqua creando lift addizionale e fornendo maggior spunto di planata e velocità. La V piatta a poppa aiuta il fluire del flusso che in combinazione all’outline molto sottile, incrementa la versatilità tra le onde e il potenziale in fatto di curve strettissime.

La tavola è fornita con una configurazione di pinne Thruster ma è predisposta con 2 scasse Mini Tuttle e 3 scasse Slot Box per estendere le possibilità di tuning e poterla adattare allo stile di qualunque rider.

La tavola viene fornita con tutti i tappi per le scasse non usate con le pinne.
PRO EDITION in tecnologia S-Glass con longherone in PVC e bordi in Innegra.

The ULTIMATE WAVEs and WAVE SLATEs 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.
