JP Australia MagicAir 150
Inflatables have clear advantages over hardboards: they are super comfortable and user friendly as they are easy to transport and store. So far, their only real disadvantage was their limited planing potential.
Now JP presents two all-new inflatable windsurf boards which are specially developed and tuned for planing!
The specially developed, super clean hard rails are covered by a fiber reinforced layer of PVC cloth and create a smooth and efficient water release. Thus, the boards plane freely, accelerate willingly and reach good speed with little drag – similar as you know it from freeride hardboards. You’ll be surprised how much fun they are!
They come with Pre Laminated Triple Layer Composite Drop Stitch, Fiber Reinforced Stringers in deck and bottom and Triple-Layer Rails and will surprise you with their stiffness. The special, fully integrated Powerbox is very stiff and strong. The boards come with four easy-to-mount footstraps and offer strap positions for advanced riders and beginners.
The soft hull is covered with a large, slip-proof EVA sheet for unmatched comfort. You also don’t have to worry about mistakes anymore because you won’t get hurt when falling on it.
Rolled up, the boards fit into a backpack – no more need for a roof rack for transport or a big garage for storage.
The fact that they are slightly softer than hard boards makes them great jibers as they can give a bit in the turn, almost providing the feeling of a self-adapting rocker line. The volume names don’t reflect the actual volumes of the boards but the volumes of comparable (similar length and width) hardboards.
The dimensions of the MagicAIR resemble those of a modern freeride shape and accordingly it has a similar performance and a short-board feeling. It addresses the intermediate to advanced sailor with mainly planing on his mind. Nevertheless, it has more volume than a hardboard of the same size, making it easier and more forgiving.
