The Surf Wide line provides all the features of a full-on performance shaped surf paddleboard with the comfort of the added width. The thin rails hold the turn smoothly and the slightly flatter rocker line generates a lot of speed. The entire line features slightly pulled in nose and a squash tail for a quicker release.
The stability combined with unbelievable turning potential is still the main characteristic of this progressive shape concept. The boards have the standard quad set-up and come with a quad fin set.

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.
