Super Lightwind

FAST IN ALMOST NO WIND

This lightwind board will blow your mind as it gets going in almost no wind, reaches top speed immediately and is comfortable, smooth and easy to sail for a high performance freeride board of this size.
It planes super early and is really fast. The cut-outs and bottom shape create the ‘lighter feel’ of a much smaller board and a lively, thrilling ride. You have to try it to believe how much fun you can have in almost no wind.

Werner Gnigler’s 4th generation of the Super Lightwind combines shape details from his Slalom, Super Sport and Formula development. It feels compact due to its short length and is equipped with a wide nose and a parallel outline through the mid section giving it the maximum planing surface.

Double concaves in the bottom under the straps create maximum lift and acceleration. The long, flat waterline helps to push the board onto the plane. The efficient bottom shape provides a super lively and electrifying riding sensation.

The cut-outs create basically two outlines for the board. The wide one in the deck gives you a very powerful stance and you can push your board to maximum speed.
The narrow one in the bottom reduces the wetted surface area and the enormous amount of pressure produced by modern fins can release easily. Therefore, the board feels stable and forgiving even on fast downwind runs. The smooth and controlled ride encourages the rider to push for unlimited speed. The cut-outs also create thin rails which makes it easy to rail up the board at high speeds and carve through the jibe.

Due to the low volume, width and dynamic lift of the tail, initiating the jibe requires little effort and guiding this wide board on its rail through the turn is easy. The concave deck lowers the mast base and reduces the swing weight in the nose area. It also allows the rider to keep the rig more upright, which creates more down force to keep the board nicely trimmed on all courses.

The deck shape delivers great comfort as the high standing position offers good leverage, creating loads of fin pressure for instant acceleration and top end performance. The advanced rider will prefer the outboard footstraps which are further back while the intermediate rider will enjoy the more inboard and further forward position which makes it very easy to get in and out of the straps.

The reinforced Foil Box works for foils with Deep Tuttle base. This “lightwind powerhouse” now also perfectly suits the new HydroFoiling trend!


JP Foil-Box: The SUPER LIGHTWINDs come with foil approved fin boxes (specially reinforced for foils with Deep Tuttle bases).

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

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.
