Performance Foiling at Ease

JP’s HydroFoils were one of the very first specialised boards for foiling and they were trendsetters right from the start of the foil revolution. The overall range of use and the all-round appeal of the first two generations made them extremely popular and successful on the market. These two shapes of the third generation can best be summarized as user-friendly scaled-down versions of the 'HydroFoil Slalom' models.
The 133 and 155 represent JP’s most balanced mix of user-friendliness combined with top foil performance. They are very efficient and fast, super comfortable to ride and so easy to ride and control that in 2022 the pros sailed them in competitions when conditions got hairy.

The predecessors were already great and only full-on race designs challenged their performance. But the success and the improved feel of the latest edition of JP’s performance foil race boards was undeniable and shaper Werner Gnigler wanted to transfer these benefits to the recreational foil class, getting rid of all superfluous volume and width. As a result, the HydroFoils are super comfortable and easy to sail. In fact, their ease is the key to their success and the base for the incredible speed. Compare it to regular windsurfing, the same connection exists between the pure performance and the freerace class: once the Slalom boards get substantially better or faster, these advantages are transferred into the Super Sport shapes.

Shaper Werner Gnigler states: “We remained true to our concept, offering a pure foil board. I kept my focus on making fast foiling easy and accessible, but still extremely exciting. Hence, I improved stability, comfort and control because – once airborne – these are the prerequisites for a fast run on all tracks.”

Shape details
The boards are narrow featuring proven proportions and dimensions. The main advantages: The shortness keeps the swing weight low for control and the balanced feel. In the air, the compact hulls provide the feeling of total control and dominance over the foil.
The even distribution of volume offers great stability and helps to lift off early. As a bonus, the volume in the nose provides sufficient float for uphauling on these short boards.

The forward section, the rounded rails with a defined tuck line feature slightly more volume for easier uphauling and are forgiving as they provide less drag on occasional touch-downs. They don’t slow down but instantly bounce-off the water, getting you up and flying again in an instant.

In the footstrap area, the deck comes with a slight dome. As a result, the ankle is not overstretched when leaning outboard in order to push and tilt the hull, and it is easier to get in and out of the straps. You feel totally connected to the board with great leverage over the foil which allows you to push your performance and fully exploit the power of the sail. Not only you can ‘ride’ but really ‘work’ the foil due to the perfect stance.

The cut-outs are very large. The benefit: Less volume and area allow you to sink the tail when pumping and loading up the foil. This results in an easy and instant take off as well as reduced drag on occasional touch-downs.

The thin profile limits drag once airborne and creates as little resistance as possible, which is very important when you are flying because strong gusts don’t affect the trim of the board. Your flight will be very stable and balanced.

The third generation of the shape that started the foil hype for JP: It is still the most all-round size, covering a very wide wind range. It suits most rider weights and levels and works great with all sail sizes except the very biggest and smallest ones. The perfect one-for-all size for most sailors.

Originally, this size was designed for foil races. Compared to pure performance boards, the volume and dimensions are reduced to the necessary maximum. It is the downsized, “freerace”, easy-handling and fun version. It also has a wide range but is especially targeted for light wind spots when used by big sailors or with big sails. Thanks to the bigger 6-hole foot strap plug, you can adapt your stap position to a wider variety of foil sizes.

Of course they come with JP’ reinforced Foil-Tuttlebox.

The 3rd generation combines the virtues of the freeride and performance foil classes. They are great fun and exciting to sail as they fly at blistering pace.
Recreational riders will be especially impressed with their speed across the wind.
Ease is the base of their performance! The comfortable stance on the board makes everything more efficient, stable and controllable. The confidence to fly fast comes naturally on these boards!
