JP’s range of Freestyle boards undergoes a steady and consistent development process. Consequently, the boards are the latest, subtle evolutions of highly successful and event winning shapes. They balance the power required for early planing on freshwater with the control needed when the conditions get wavy and rough. They also provide the necessary speed for an impressive take-off from small chop and loads of power for a second or third pop for multiple rotations. Easy to handle and forgiving, these Freestyle boards thrive and perform on flat water and in waves alike.
Year after year, the four JP Freestyle boards stand out as state of the art. As the boards have such a wide range of use, shaper Werner Gnigler’s target was and is to improve characteristics only when sure not to compromise on any other range of use. After all, the boards have to perform at fun events on freshwater as well as in PWA and EFPT hard core freestyle events on the sea. In the end, the production boards always represent a great and ‘complete’ package, overall. The focus of the latest designs was on stability! The boards gained ease of use which helps to maintain speed for maximum pop – no matter if sailing regular or switch stance.
But they are more than just conventional freestyle boards. All sizes come with JP’s reinforced Foil-Powerbox and their compact and wide shapes make them ideal toys for foil riding! This widens the range of use of your “small” gear: Just mount a foil and fly – while other freestylers with their normal fins are stuck on the beach waiting for the wind to pick up. JP’s short Freestyle boards provide enough ease and stability to pick up this new segment of our sport quite easily. On the other hand you can push your limits and also pull-off your first crazy moves at the EFPT “foilstyle” events.
And although not specially designed and tuned for it, the shape dimensions also allow for the use of a wing.
The scoop rocker line in the mid-section of the board is flat for effortless and early planing.
The bottom shape has a pronounced V from the mast base forward which –in combination with the soft tuck line in this area of the board– makes it very forgiving. The ride is smooth and relaxed, even when sailing switch in chop and you don’t lose speed when going for double moves. These features also prevent the rail from catching during sliding moves.
The tail features sufficient width and area for efficient pop in light winds. At the same time, the tail is not too big for explosive pop when the wind picks up.
The noticeable curve in the outline and centered volume distribution brings the swing weight close to the mast base. Rotations happen a lot quicker and moves become more radical.
Towards the tail we run a defined tuck line in combination with a rather flat V bottom shape. These features create instant power, fantastic grip and a loose ride.
The fin is big enough to support all powerful moves and faster action.
The JP Freestyle boards accelerate superbly for powerful jumps. Their short, compact shapes enhance the handling in all moves and speed up all rotations. The lively and direct feel builds confidence so that amateurs and pros alike will pull-off more moves in greater style. And the Foil-Powerbox widens the range of use.

22 JP Magic Wave
J2WBMGCWVPRO075Regular price $2,499.00 Sale price $1,499.40 Save $999.60
What an outstanding first year this new flagship of JP’s wave line experienced! It saw excellent test reports worldwide and – even more importantly – the word of mouth from impressed owners made it an extremely successful start for the Magic Wave. And the demand of this board does not show any signs of slowing down now that it heads into season two. This fresh all-round wave concept combines and beats the best characteristics of our previous, all-time favourite wave designs. The Magic Wave draws from the speed of the Thruster Quad, versatility of the Wave Slates, ease of sailing of the Real World Waves. It also offers incredible speed and confidence on the wave, matching the performance of the Ultimate wave in most conditions, even in waves up to and over mast high.
Extremely quick to get planing and reach top speed, the Magic Wave pops over white water effortlessly and jumps extremely high. It offers both front and back foot wave riding possibilities, gaining speed and control from the advanced rocker shape, beautiful rails and wide, thin, ultra-high performance swallow tail.
Confidence, speed, comfort and grip on the wave all combine into a board that feels carvy and loose on the wave face, while still offering the essential speed needed for more onshore conditions.
Finally an all-round board which excels in mediocre conditions but does not compromise on wave performance. JP’s most exciting introduction to the wave board market for many years.
The concept of a wider swallow tail board with an equally wide nose gave us a stable base for the new board. We worked tirelessly developing a new rocker for this board that is extremely fast without being too stiff on the wave. The very fast, early planing Wave Slate and the multiple award winning Freestyle Wave were good benchmarks. The new Magic Wave equals or betters the Wave Slate in early planing, low end, top speed, versatility and looseness on the wave. And its planing performance comes close that of the Freestyle Wave.
Shaper Werner Gnigler followed a new path by disconnecting the centre scoop rocker line from the rail line. So, the traditionally known rocker along the centre does not exist anymore in the tail area. Werner combined V and concaves along the bottom which created a curvy rail line and resulted in the magic combination of fast, early planing boards with outstanding manoeuvrability.
The more parallel rail outline that we gain from the wider nose and tail really helps with early planing and keeping speed through white water. It also is easier to keep as much speed as possible through the bottom turn in onshore conditions and side-shore alike. You can use a smaller sail and feel less overpowered with this new design which makes wave riding and jumping feel much more comfortable and controllable.
Jumping is easy on this board because the wide nose and tail give more lift when hitting the wave, so you automatically jump a little bit higher. When you come down to land forward and backwards rotating moves, you have more board under your feet and at the nose which makes for a more forgiving landing.
New carbon fins: The boards come with a set of new thruster fins featuring a more traditional outline and more area especially in the tip. Thus, planing and maintaining speed is easier. They are more forgiving in manoeuvres and smoothen the ride.
The thruster fin setup grants the widest possible range of wave use and the 5-fin box setup enables tuning to personal preferences, giving the boards greater range of use from onshore to down-the-line conditions. Plugs are provided to cover the boxes when not used.
JP’s greatest all-round wave design yet performs at its best in onshore jumping and wave riding. The Magic Wave jumps higher and rides small to medium sized waves better than the Ultimate Wave but it doesn’t stop there. It holds its own in far bigger waves than you would expect, meaning that you can really choose 1 board for 90% of conditions and will almost never be under-gunned in big surf or lacking performance in small surf. Get out and try yourself.
