JP Freestyle Wave
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 demands for Werner Gnigler’s new shapes were not extensive, they were as simple as it gets: Just make them better without sacrificing in any segment. A very tricky task when you are asked to improve our already market-leading all-rounders but with the development of the Magic Wave in his pocket, our shaper already had a pretty clear idea what to do. Werner: “I planned to maintain the proven proportions of width, length and volume as they are key to overall ease and let us offer the perfect balance between all disciplines. The major change I had in mind was that I wanted to re-work the bottom curve…”
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.
