UNMATCHED WAVE PERFORMANCE

The Radical Quad has been in the JP line for four years due to its benchmark in wave performance. Nevertheless, our team riders dreamed of an update – a new and better version of the board considered the most radical on the market. The result is Werner Gnigler’s development of an outstanding design which merges the virtues of its predecessors – the Radical Quad’s looseness, reactivity and rail bite and the planing power and speed of the Thruster Quad. Consequently, a name was chosen which says it all – The Ultimate Wave!
Riding the Ultimate Wave, you’ll immediately notice how quickly it jumps onto the plane and how much faster it rides. Werner states: “The completely new bottom concept brought the crucial breakthrough in the development.” It features a flat V in the front, which transforms into a double concave in the middle, then into a deep single concave under the foot straps, and tapers off with a gentle V right at the tail. This creates a flatter scoop rocker line in the middle but keeps the curvy one on the rail. The flat centre line delivers the speed and planing power that matches the former Thruster Quad.

Have compromises been made regarding wave performance? No! Morgan Noireaux proved the boards are at the top of their game by winning his 3rd Aloha Classic title using a prototype of this new concept. After all, functional features have been transferred from the previous shapes, like the slim tail, the thin rails with a soft tuck line and the winger outline which keeps the planing section rather wide and reduces the tail width at the winger point. Offering ultimate rail bite, the boards turn tight easily, and instantly respond to every little rider input. At all times the radius of the bottom turn can be adjusted to hit the lip spot-on.
Robby Swift feels, that “the Ultimate Wave is: faster and better on the wave! Sailing now is more exciting and makes me feel like I have improved my jumping and wave riding just by changing to this new board. I’m most excited about the 102. Never before have I enjoyed riding such a big board because it’s –like all sizes– fantastic in all conditions.”

The quad fin quiver enhances the top wave performance and the 5-fin box setup enables tuning to personal preferences.
The all-new shape will stun dedicated wave sailors around the globe. You will feel at home, at every wave spot in any given conditions. The Ultimate Wave carves fast, turns smoothly and maintains speed no matter if on a huge down-the-line wave or a gutless onshore roller.

This new board is Jason Polakow’s new Ultimate Wave!


The boards additionally come with plugs to cover all fin boxes used without fins.

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.

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.
