Easy-going medium to high wind freemove boards for freeriding and bump & jump blasting. They excel in manoeuvres and they willingly plane through the gybe with speed. Ideal for high wind freeride windsurfing on fresh water as well as on the sea.

The Magic Move revolutionizes the free move segment requirements, targeting riders seeking a 90 to 110 L sporty board for easy and early planing. This dynamic design offers an exhilarating ride, excelling in speed and maneuverability. Whether riding open ocean swells or tackling coastal waves and reefs, it remains unstoppable. Werner Gnigler praises its versatility and comfort: “Planing gybes and effortless planing guaranteed!”

Another board in the JP line. Why did we come up with this board? What are its benefits?
Here is how the idea was born:

We have all been there: You have driven hundreds of kilometres South to escape the winter and find a mild spring breeze. You get to the coast and there are some little waves but the wind is extremely light. The Freestyle Wave doesn’t quite cut it as the wind is too light and your freeride board is fun but you’re just blasting in and out and not able to make much out of the little waves on offer.

Presenting you: The Magic Move!!

We needed a board aimed at these specific conditions and the design brief to shaper Werner Gnigler was simple: ‘Develop a new board covering the gap between the Freestyle Wave and the freeride class.’

Right from the beginning Werner had a clear vision of how to make this reality: “I wanted to use the Freestyle Waves as my starting point and adapt a few parameters to achieve the desired improvements.” Here they are…

Shape details:
Compared to our Freestyle Wave line the Magic Moves are slightly longer, wider and equipped with a noticeably wider tail with additional volume. The outline in the mid-section of the board is kept rather parallel, offering a wide planing surface. This in combination with the even volume distribution makes the shapes very stable when non-planing and lifts the rider onto the plane effortlessly with almost no pumping needed.

A unique design feature of these boards is the refined new rail shape: Lifting the apex point along the midsection towards the nose creates the extra required lift. This helps tremendously to maintain speed during the gybe and exit with speed.

The Step Rail
STEP RAIL
Towards the tail the rail shape tapers down and finishes off with a noticeable step rail. This feature allows the use of a wider tail with sufficient volume and still guarantees optimal grip and bite in tight turns when hitting white-water.

The shapes use a flat scoop rocker line designed for early planing and high speed. The pronounced double concave V in the front works like suspension when hitting chop.
Reducing the V towards the area between the foot straps and increasing it again towards the tail disconnects the rail shape from the centre scoop rocker line. This also supports the outstanding mix of performance and manoeuvrability.

The Magic Moves are equipped with various foot strap options and a single fin Powerbox for the perfect customizable set up.

The boards’ Freestyle Wave fins feature a lot of area at the tip, a curvy outline and a smooth, swept back rake angle. Thus, the fin provides a lot of drive and a secure, steady ride in combination with outstanding manoeuvrability.

Summing it up, the boards plane earlier than Freestyle Wave boards and are much better at taking speed through the gybe and staying on the plane during turns. Compared to freeride boards they are more versatile and loose, thus livelier and more fun.
