The Ultimate Wave will stun dedicated wave sailors around the globe. You will feel at home at every wave spot in any given condition. The board carves fast, turns smoothly and maintains speed anywhere from huge down-the-line waves to mushy onshore rollers. It responds instantly to rider input and changes from rail to rail comfortably and extremely quickly. The grip and rail bite will give you the confidence to push your personal limits when carving turns on anything from medium to XXL waves. It will reward progressive sailing with turns that you used to dream of. This is the ultimate wave board!
After 4 years of development, the Ultimate Wave was introduced to the JP range two years ago as a successor to the popular Radical Thruster Quad and Thruster Quad. Its speed, early planing and manoeuvrability made it more than just a worthy replacement.
For 2021, the shape and the features of the board remain unchanged. Double foot-strap holes satisfy the request of many of our customers and pro riders and completely eliminate any chance of the straps twisting. The foot straps feature measurement markings to allow you to quickly set up your board to your perfect foot strap size. The thick deck-pad increases comfort and cushions the landing of big jumps and aerials.
The result is a fine-tuned and brilliant wave board which feels at home in side-onshore, side-shore and down-the-line conditions.
Our pro riders tend to choose this board over any other model for PWA and IWT competitions with ideal side shore conditions and the boards excel in all down-the-line locations. Morgan Noireaux won his third Aloha Classic title using the final prototype of the Ultimate Wave 83.
The success of the shape comes from the outline and bottom shape concept. The bottom features a flat V in the front, which transforms into a double concave in the middle, then into a deep single concave under the foot straps and tapers off with a gentle V right at the tail. This creates a flat scoop rocker line in the middle but keeps the curved one on the rail. The flat centre line delivers speed and planing power.
A thin rail shape throughout the board in combination with a soft tuck line makes the boards slice through the wave face providing the grip and rail bite everybody is looking for.
The quad fin setup enhances top-end wave performance and the 5-fin box setup enables tuning to personal preferences, giving the boards a greater range of use from onshore to down the line conditions.
