The hunt for versatility stops right here! JPs have always been THE true classics in the Freestyle Wave class because they are super balanced and incredible fun in the widest possible wind and water range. And this latest generation of all-water toys is no exception, providing a compact feel and quick response in manoeuvres. As an additional treat they not only sail faster but at the same time feel more comfortable than all their predecessors. Uniting the core virtues almost every windsurfer is looking for, they truly tick all the boxes as all in one boards!
We beefed up this successful design concept with a big, super-fun, high volume version – the 124!
The slim outline in the nose area provides the feel of lightness. The centered swing weight further enhances the compact feel and the great responsiveness in manoeuvres.
In the mid-section the outline is parallel creating a big surface for early planing and stability.
Just wide enough for good planing, the narrow tail allows you to maintain control during fast runs over choppy water and – together with the thin rails – bites hard into high speed carving turns and small waves without getting stuck.
The deck shape creates a comfortable stance for all foot strap positions, providing perfect board control and excellent responsiveness. The outboard strap position matches best with a single fin setup and offers the best freeride solution. Alternatively, the thruster fin box set up in combination with the inboard strap option is the perfect tuning for maximum manoeuvrability.
Essential shape details:
The front section of the board features a significant Vee combined with double concaves making the board super comfortable and effortless to sail.
Starting between the straps and towards the tail, the Vee becomes less pronounced resulting in a very curvy rail line and thinned out rails. This is responsible for the outstanding manoeuvrability and grip during turns and further improves the wave heritage of these boards.
The rocker was reduced along the centre, not only boosting the performance level in blasting mode but also resulting in a more comfortable stance due to the loose and stable water position of the new shapes.
Coming with the same layup as the Freestyle boards, the FSWs in Pro Edition feature a Carbon Innegra deck! (also see technology)
Additionally, all Pro Edition sizes come with the JP Foil-Powerbox and are ready for foil action! Even the small FSW 78 features this reinforced fin box which probably makes it the smallest board for foiling on the market. This box widens the total wind range and opens the options for this new discipline of ‘flying’.
All Freestyle Waves come with thruster fin boxes: The main Powerbox and two side fin boxes and covers (PRO: with two small side fins).
G-10 fin: The Pro Edition boards come with a fin featuring a lot of area at the tip, a curvy outline and a smooth swept back rake angle. Thus, the fin provides more drive and a secure, steady ride in combination with outstanding manoeuvrability.
NOTE: The ES boards come with the standard Powerbox and only the PRO models feature JP’s specially reinforced Foil-Powerbox
