BEST WAVE ALL-ROUNDER

The success of the Wave Slates continues because these compact wave shapes impress by being super agile and reliable at the same time. They are fast, early to plane and super-efficient in generating and maintaining speed, making sessions in mediocre wave conditions very exciting and vivacious! These all-round play machines feature a very wide range of use and are a lot of fun in all kinds of waves.

British WINDSURF states that it feels wonderfully adaptable, with the speed for cross-offshore conditions and loose rail-to-rail response for cross on and push in more power and the Slate keeps accelerating, feeling lively and responsive, yet super controlled.
German SURF thinks that the board carves through the bottom turn like a hot knife through butter. A lot of potential in typical European wave conditions – planing and jumping are at highest level. “It is one of the most efficient and comfortable” in the eyes of French PLANCHEMAG. WIND thinks it proves true versatility. The JP rotates very well under the rear foot as carving…

The parallel outline is the base of this board concept. It reduces drag and increases lift, resulting in more speed and early planing. Together with the efficient volume distribution, the parallel outline grants stability which is why these boards now can be shorter than previous concepts. The shortness makes tight turns come natural and is the base for feeling small and compact in the air. Thus, the swing weight is centred, speeding up rotations and change of direction. Additionally, shorter boards fit better into steep sections or smaller waves without getting stuck.
The second generation of our Wave Slates features a bottom concept which is widely used in surf boards and combines two totally different rocker lines:
On the one hand the quite flat rocker along the centre-line supports early planing and overall performance partnered with a great deal of control. On the other hand, the strong V and narrow outline at the nose and tail create more curve at the rail which takes over once railed up.
Consequently, this combination results in a surf board like manoeuvre feeling paired with the performance expected from a modern windsurf board.
The narrow nose and a strong V in the bottom with additional rocker in the front keep the shoulders high and dry providing a safe feel during turns and on the wave face and when lining up jumps. Between the footstraps the deep single concave channels and accelerates the water to provide additional lift for early planing and speed.

Towards the tail the flat V creates a great water release and in combination with the slim outline enhances the versatility on the wave and the potential to carve super tight.
The boards come with a thruster fin setup but the hull is equipped with 2 Mini Tuttle and 3 Slot Boxes to open up all trim options and to suit every rider’s style.


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

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.
  • 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

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.
