Super stable parallel outline and the sharp displacement bow ensure an effortless and silent glide. Apart from standard fittings like multiple bungee tie downs, FCS nose plugs for GoPro or the JP standard windsurfing option, the Outback comes with cooler tie-down inserts, inserts for the JP Fishing Rack (sold separately) and a very special and unique storage system: the Light Capsule! The most versatile board out there just received two new siblings. Discover the new worlds with the amazing night paddling feature of the Outbacks!
The Light Capsule has a transparent bottom that lets you put in a flashlight of your choice for an amazing night paddling sensation! You can, of course, use it to store car keys, your favorite drink or even tackle bait. The boards feature the fully padded nose for a comfortable ride of your kid or your dog. Paddle out and kick back – the Outback!

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.”
