The Brazilian JP Australia rider earned his first-ever ISA Gold Medal in the Men’s SUP Distance Race, in El Salvador during the World SUP Championship on November 25th. The event featured the elite of the SUP riders of the world. After taking an early lead, Vinnicius managed to increase the distance to the other riders after each paddle stroke. His high-class performance in the 2019 season was awarded, this spectacular achievement in one of the most important events of the stand up paddle world. Martins continues to improve his level and consolidates his name as one of the best riders in the world!

Great job Vini! From all of us at JP-Australia! We are so proud of you!

Two days later, the SUP fans in El Salvador could see another great performance of “Vini”! He finished 3rd the Men’s Sup Technical Race of the ISA World Cup.


Since we are talking about the fastest race boards…


A brand new Downwind shape is available in 2020. The dedicated downwind shape has an increased scoop rocker line compared to the Allwater shape for maximizing the glide time on a bump. The very positively reviewed sunk deck concept from other JP lines was introduced to this product. Riding this board will guarantee great times on the bumps!

More highlights of this model:

  • A shape for Downwind paddling enthusiasts of all levels;
  • CNC molded core;
  • Generous volume;
  • Drain pipes;
  • Shaped by Werner Gnigler.

Besides the new shape of the Downwind, all the 2020 Race PRO boards feature a full PVC sandwich deck and rails for the maximum in durability and lightweight.
