UNMATCHED WAVE PERFORMANCE

 

 

The result is Werner Gnigler’s development of an outstanding design which merges the virtues of its predecessors – the Radical Quad’s looseness, reactivity and rail bite and the planing power and speed of the Thruster Quad. Consequently, a name was chosen which says it all – The Ultimate Wave!

Riding the Ultimate Wave, you’ll immediately notice how quickly it jumps onto the plane and how much faster it rides. Werner states: “The completely new bottom concept brought the crucial breakthrough in the development.” It 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 flatter scoop rocker line in the middle but keeps the curvy one on the rail. The flat centre line delivers the speed and planing power that matches the former Thruster Quad.

Have compromises been made regarding wave performance? No! Morgan Noireaux proved the boards are at the top of their game by winning his 3rd Aloha Classic title using a prototype of this new concept. After all, functional features have been transferred from the previous shapes, like the slim tail, the thin rails with a soft tuck line and the winger outline which keeps the planing section rather wide and reduces the tail width at the winger point. Offering ultimate rail bite, the boards turn tight easily, and instantly respond to every little rider input. At all times the radius of the bottom turn can be adjusted to hit the lip spot-on.

Robby Swift feels, that “the Ultimate Wave is: faster and better on the wave! Sailing now is more exciting and makes me feel like I have improved my jumping and wave riding just by changing to this new board. I’m most excited about the 102. Never before have I enjoyed riding such a big board because it’s –like all sizes– fantastic in all conditions.”

The quad fin quiver enhances the top wave performance and the 5-fin box setup enables tuning to personal preferences.

The all-new shape will stun dedicated wave sailors around the globe. You will feel at home, at every wave spot in any given conditions. The Ultimate Wave carves fast, turns smoothly and maintains speed no matter if on a huge down-the-line wave or a gutless onshore roller.

This new board is Jason Polakow’s new Ultimate Wave!

 

The boards additionally come with plugs to cover all fin boxes used without fins.

PRO EDITION in S-Glass Technology with PVC Stringers and Innegra Rails.

 

Lightweight Fiber (pigmented) with excellent impact resistance and flexiblitly / no paint chipping

 

The ULTIMATE WAVEs and WAVE SLATEs feature 5 fin boxes:

  • 3 Slot Boxes with 2 covers and
  • 2 side fin Mini Tuttle boxes with 2 covers

The boards are equipped with the fins which suit their character best. Still, you can acquire additional spare fins to trim the boards according your requirements or the given conditions. So, each board can be used in every possible setup: quad, thruster, twinser or even single-fin. To cover the same range of use, the main thruster- or the 2 twinser fins should be 2 cm bigger than the quad fins, and the single-fin should bigger again - minimum 2 but up to 5 cm.

 

Advantages of each setup:

SINGLE: "Drive", directional feel, good planing.

THRUSTER: The maneuverable version of the single fin setup with better control. The best on- to side-shore wave riding option overall.

QUAD: the best side-offshore down-the-line wave riding option overall

 

TWINSER: Livelier version to the quad setup.

BEST WAVE ALL-ROUNDER

The success of the Wave Slates continues because these compact wave shapes impress by being super agile and reliable at the same time. They are fast, early to plane and super-efficient in generating and maintaining speed, making sessions in mediocre wave conditions very exciting and vivacious! These all-round play machines feature a very wide range of use and are a lot of fun in all kinds of waves.

British WINDSURF states that it feels wonderfully adaptable, with the speed for cross-offshore conditions and loose rail-to-rail response for cross on and push in more power and the Slate keeps accelerating, feeling lively and responsive, yet super controlled.

German SURF thinks that the board carves through the bottom turn like a hot knife through butter. A lot of potential in typical European wave conditions – planing and jumping are at highest level. “It is one of the most efficient and comfortable” in the eyes of French PLANCHEMAG. WIND thinks it proves true versatility. The JP rotates very well under the rear foot as carving…

The parallel outline is the base of this board concept. It reduces drag and increases lift, resulting in more speed and early planing. Together with the efficient volume distribution, the parallel outline grants stability which is why these boards now can be shorter than previous concepts. The shortness makes tight turns come natural and is the base for feeling small and compact in the air. Thus, the swing weight is centred, speeding up rotations and change of direction. Additionally, shorter boards fit better into steep sections or smaller waves without getting stuck.

The second generation of our Wave Slates features a bottom concept which is widely used in surf boards and combines two totally different rocker lines:

On the one hand the quite flat rocker along the centre-line supports early planing andoverall performance partnered with a great deal of control. On the other hand, the strong V and narrow outline at the nose and tail create more curve at the rail which takes over once railed up.

Consequently, this combination results in a surf board like manoeuvre feeling paired with the performance expected from a modern windsurf board.

The narrow nose and a strong V in the bottom with additional rocker in the front keep the shoulders high and dry providing a safe feel during turns and on the wave face and when lining up jumps. Between the footstraps the deep single concave channels and accelerates the water to provide additional lift for early planing and speed.

Towards the tail the flat V creates a great water release and in combination with the slim outline enhances the versatility on the wave and the potential to carve super tight.

The boards come with a thruster fin setup but the hull is equipped with 2 Mini Tuttle and 3 Slot Boxes to open up all trim options and to suit every rider’s style.

 

The boards additionally come with plugs to cover all fin boxes used without fin.

ALL IN ONE FOR ALL

 

The compact versions of JP’s bestsellers have the potential to fulfill every windsurfer’s dreams as they unite the virtues of a classic medium to high wind all-rounder with the advantages of the compact, versatile Slate. JP’s fastest, liveliest and most manoeuvrable and great fun all-water toys ever. They accelerate in the flats, fly over chop and carve into wave faces. You’ll simply have your best time on the water – easy!

British WINDSURF states that it is “rewarding to use in any sea state, but particularly around a coastal break in a bump and jump role… With early planing ease, accessible speed and manoeuvre control in just one setting, it offers class defining plug-and-play performance that both flatters and inspires.”

German SURF thinks that „chop is absorbed very smoothly, even in real strong wind and at top speed. French WIND confirms it is “once again a reference of freewave versatility” and that “in the waves, you can surf the JP with your eyes closed.”

PLANCHEMAG comments that JP’s “bump & jump king” is “easy to sail for a big audience and radical enough for the most demanding”.

It was said before and has to be pointed out again: The Freestyle Wave concept is the ideal option for 99% of coastal-sailing recreational windsurfers. If you are not sure which board line would suit you best, then don’t look any further. If just in theory, the Freestyle Wave would not work perfectly for the given conditions as they come, you still can tune it to perfection! It’s an ideal all-round high wind board for both, blasting and bump&jump sailing. It also shines as a powerful, all-round wave board for lighter winds, heavier sailors or difficult conditions and then is great fun especially for huge jumps and fast carves in side to side onshore conditions.

The direct feel derives from the reduced swing weight of the short, compact shape. The outline is parallel in the mid-section creating a big area for early planing and stability. The tail is rather narrow to maintain control on fast runs over choppy water. The FSW is agile, quick to respond and its rails bite hard into small waves without getting stuck.

The domed deck grants a comfortable stance for all foot strap positions. The deck shape also provides perfect board control mixed with readiness to respond.

Offering all the traditional Freestyle Wave virtues, they now are even more agile and fun. They are fast, super comfortable and provide confidence to push to the board’s limits. Suited for freestyle as well, they love to carve fast, drawn-out turns in all waters, flatwater, chop and waves. They cover it all and are simply the best JP Freestyle Waves – ever!

 

The FWS boards come with a Powerbox and a single fin and they are great bump&jump blasters. The PRO boards additionally come with Mini Tuttle sidefin boxes, thruster fins, a 2cm shorter main fin than the FWS models and covers for the sidefin boxes when used as single fin. They are exceptional toys for all conditions, yet, they offer huge potential for further fine-tuning and thus increasing the fun and the performance in the whole range of use.

PRO = PRO EDITION Technology (thruster fin setup)

 

FWS = FULL WOOD SANDWICH Technology (single fin)

 

 

All FREESTYLE WAVE boards in PRO Edition come with a thruster fin setup:

1 big FREESTYLE WAVE tail fin, 2 side fins and 2 Mini Tuttlebox plugs.

You can also use these boards in single-fin setup. For use in the same wind range, just cover the Mini Tuttle boxes with the plugs and use a 2cm bigger main fin (not included) than you would for thruster-use.

 

[All FREESTYLE WAVE models in Full Wood Sandwich come as single fin boards without sidefin boxes.]
