The subtle displacement bow flowing into a double concave bottom with soft thin rails and narrow tail provide a combination of good glide, stability and solid surfing characteristic. The Hybrids feature a long efficient water line offering a superior paddling sensation on flat water with the longboard type of tail for easy rail to rail transfers in the surf.
Take the Hybrid for a tour or a downwind run and check out the waves on your way back. Bring along your necessities under the bungee tie downs for a great day on the water.

For 15 years I worked for F2 and shaped many popular boards like the Comet Slalom or the Xantos ranges. Since 2000 I am with JP and am responsible for the whole board and fin range. It is always a great feeling when one of my boards like the Freestyle Wave turns out to be a test winner and becomes a successful best seller. Especially when you see happy people on the water with this board.”
Philosophy: do not be too serious, just go windsurfing
“I often get asked how we can come up with new products every year. Some people are suspicious and believe it is all about marketing and nothing is really new. The truth is, I learn something new with every single prototype I build and test. Sometimes it amazes me what big effects small changes can have and that allows us to improve the boards again and again. That’s driving me, as I know there is always room for improvement.”

The Innegra Parabolic Rail works as a stringer around the whole shape, adding extra stiffness to the board. To ensure the best stiffness ratio, the rail is fully covered with Innegra, a high modulus polypropylene fiber that has excellent impact resistance. The parabolic form of the rail combined with the molded fibre creates a strong and solid U-beam structure that connects the deck, rail and bottom.
Innegra is pigmented instead of fully painted to save weight and avoid paint chipping.
