FAST IS NOT FAST ENOUGH!

The new JP Slalom boards enter a new dimension concerning control and top speed. They are the perfect boards for ambitious racers who want to be on the podium. Our entire collection is based on five core design elements which guarantee the perfect setup for racing:
DUAL TAIL OUTLINES – individually adjusted to each board size. The bottom outline features a new cut-out configuration reducing the wetted surface and creating multiple release points for low drag and high speed. The deck outline over the cut-outs is wider and due to the further outboard rear strap position the rider can load more power onto the fin for more control and speed.

TRANSFORMING VEE FLOW along the bottom – the Vee is strongly pronounced in front of the mast base, decreasing between the foot straps and opening again towards the tail. Thus, the board rides high and loose, ironing out all the chop. The transforming V results in a curvy rail line which makes gybing smoother and helps to exit the turn at full speed.
COMPACT CONCEPT – The parallel outline in the mid-section of the board maximises the planing surface at the mast base, lifting the boards onto the plane instantly.
THIN PROFILE – in the nose area reduces drag since this is the part which is affected most by the wind. This in combination with a sunken deck means we managed to keep the swing weight centred for great top end control.

DECK SHAPES are designed to produce maximum pressure and feel totally connected and in control. The concave deck reduces the swing weight and lowers the rig position for improved control.

New Shapes
After an intense development with countless hours of testing at various spots around the world we can now present three new sizes: the 85, 71 and 62 feature new tail shapes, each adapted according to its range of use. The reduced tail thickness and redesigned cut-outs result in increased comfort and a smoother ride. The clearly defined water release with less drag cause faster acceleration and higher speed, and on top of that the rider gets more feedback from the fin for improved control and ease to handle all the power.

Equipment
* JP FOIL-BOX: All SLALOM boards (except SL55) come with foil approved fin boxes (specially reinforced for foils with Deep Tuttle bases).
* DOUBLE PLUGS for 100% anti-twist: two-hole footstrap plugs (4 screws per strap) for safety and perfect connection between rider and board.

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!

Symmetrical - for rear center strap

Asymmetrical - for front straps and rear straps on the rail

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.
