YOUNG GUN

Specially designed according to the needs of the new generation, these boards feature a reduced stance width and a shorter distance between footstrap plugs for more narrow feet and also with many different footstrap options for youngsters of all sizes and sailing levels. They work for young guns up to around 50 kilos.

YOUNG GUN – RADICAL THRUSTER QUAD

The scaled down version of the board that won Morgan Noireaux the Aloha Classic -twicefeatures all the shape details of its bigger brothers: Deep concaves under the foot straps which create a long flat section for great acceleration and speed. Once railed up the curvy rail line takes over and easily slices the water: A new dimension in grip, control and speed throughout your wave moves! A super soft tuck line with slightly less overall width makes the board respond a lot quicker and changing from rail to rail is faster. It delivers unmatched performance for light riders to hit the waves. Never before has it been so easy for a light weight to rip so determined, dedicated and hard – THE board for all young guns who have the courage to hit the surf hard!

YOUNG GUN – MAGIC RIDE

This shape is very wide providing stability. Youngsters also get on the plane much quicker and initiating turns is easy due to the round outline.

  • Fun from the very first minute
  • Very stable
  • You will be sailing back and forth happily on your first day
  • Very easy to tack and jibe
  • Progresses together with you

YOUNG GUN – AIR

Awesome handling advantages:
It can be rolled up and fits into the backpack it comes with – no more need for a roof rack for transport and no big garage for storage.
It is also considerably lighter than any hardboard of this size. For paddling you could even take it in the backpack to the beach with your bike.

The high tech drop stitch technology makes it so stiff that you will easily get it gliding but the surface itself is so soft that you won’t hurt yourself when falling on it.
Instead of a daggerboard, the additional center fin provides directional stability to reduce side drift and helps to go upwind.
Being longer than the normal Young Guns also helps with going upwind due to its longer waterline length.

This board offers so much fun and is a great kids toy.

FREESTYLE WAVE, FREESTYLE, SUPER RIDE, MAGIC RIDE, SUPER SPORT, SUPER LIGHTWIND, YOUNG GUN FREESTYLE 6 + 4 mm = 10mm pads in the actual standing area provide unbelievable shock absorption and comfort.

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

SET-UP A  

The set-up for the very first hours and days. The bigger fin in front and the smaller fin in the rear make the board very stable and still easy to turn for the first tacks and jibes.
There are no straps on the board yet.  

 

SET-UP B  

After the first few days the Youngsters want to experience real windsurfing - planing. The smaller fin in the front still gives some stability while the bigger fin in the rear gets the board planing early and easy. It is now also time to get into the straps.

SET-UP C

Soon, stability is not such an issue anymore. Now it is time to fill the front powerbox with the power base and put the bigger fin in the rear.

When the Youngster is used to this fin set-up he can consider moving to strap set-up C (straps further back, single strap in the rear and the two front straps closer together).

SET-UP D

The real Young Guns will consider first freestyle moves shortly after they reached level or set-up C. When they are ready for that it is time to put the smaller fin into the rear powerbox to increase the maneuverability.

It is now the Youngster's choice, if she or he wants to leave the straps in the more freestyle oriented strap set-up C or if they go for the performance oriented strap set-up D (double rear strap, front strap closer to the rail).

The strap set up D obviously can also be used with the bigger fin in the rear (fin set up C), when focusing on planing.

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.
