Our pure wing foil inflatable. The compact hull and JP’s superior construction provide a stiff feel when flying on the foil. It is super user friendly because it provides all advantages of inflatables: comfortable and smooth on your skin and knees, light and small for easy transport and storage. More on inflatables? See below...
There is no better JP board when it comes to pleasurable, enjoyable and hassle-free winging in light winds. Pure wing foiling fun!
Top recommendation: The NeilPryde Glide foil fits perfectly and is our first choice – the Glide Wind for beginners and/or heavy weights (for its ease, control and steady lift), the Glide Surf for light and/or advanced riders (for its agility and life).
The two sizes from last year (5’4”x27.5” and 6’0”x28.5”) are now partnered with a smaller 5’0”x26.5”. All boards feature footstrap positions for wing-foiling and foiling.
Inflatables have clear advantages over hardboards: They are super comfortable and user friendly as they are easy to transport and store. These JP inflatable wing foil boards are specially developed and equipped for early take-off, featuring hard rails, Triple Layer Composite Drop Stitch and more. Additionally, they come in JP’s superior welded technology.
Welded Technology: This heat-welded connection was introduced last year and proved to be successful. It creates a very strong mechanical joint that literally fuses two parts into one and thus is superior to the standard gluing. This welding process of amalgamating two different layers into one makes the board safer, lighter and stiffer.
Hard Rails: In the tail, the specially developed, super clean hard rails are covered by a fibre reinforced layer of PVC cloth and create a smooth and efficient water release. Thus, the board picks up speed to take-off easily. Touchdowns are smooth and comfortable.
Triple Layer: They come with Pre-Laminated Triple Layer Composite Drop Stitch, Fibre Reinforced Stringers in deck and bottom and Welded Rails and will surprise you with their stiffness.
Track Foil Plate: The board features a Track Foil Plate of the same size as on our hard boards providing a big range of foil placement. The G10 material adds additional longitudinal stiffness to the hull. On the other hand, this plate is not too long – thus you don’t need an oversized bag but it can still be folded easily into a normal size SUP backpack.
Footstraps: The boards come with three easy-to-mount footstraps for wing foiling.
Comfort: The soft hull is covered with a large, slip-proof EVA sheet for unmatched comfort and a safe stance. You also don’t have to worry about mistakes anymore because you won’t get hurt when falling on it.
Transport and Storage: Rolled up, the boards fit into a backpack – no more need for a car with roof rack for transport or a big garage for storage. In times when airlines are hesitant to accept windsurf equipment, the boards’ backpack dimensions are a major advantage!
ADDITIONALLY INCLUDED ACCESSORIES
* 3 straps
* Repair set

Reduced foil track depth [13mm]. Make sure to use the right screw length for your plate mount system!
MAX screw length = 13mm + Plate Thickness
All JP foil boards come without screws to attach the foil. Reason: The screw length has to match the plate thickness which varies from foil and brand, so, screws are provided by the foil brand. But this board features a special G10-track-plate requiring shorter screws, for example:
NP foils will work with M8x18 up to M8x22 screws and because small screws are sometimes difficult to obtain, NeilPryde offers M8x18 screws (allen key head) in their spare parts range.

J111088811FL68Regular price $1,399.00 Sale price $1,099.00 Save $300.00
Werner has developed dedicated foil shapes with great input from Keahi. The boards are short for reduced swing weight during pumping and maneuvers. The extremely beveled rails help reduce the wetted surface at take-off and prevent the board from catching the water in the turns. The cut-out tail section on the bottom surface has the same purpose. This is the perfect shape for wingfoiling.
The flat deck ensures stability. The pad features an increased arch line along the center so that you can feel the center of the board without even looking down. The pad tail kick is positioned perfectly for an optimized foiling stance. The boards come with 2 foot-straps and foot-strap plugs.
The 2 track boxes for the plate mounted foils have a generous length of 33 cm so you can also use the board for light wind windsurf foiling at the back position.
22 JP Freestyle Wave
J2WBFSTWVPRO078Regular price Sale price $2,499.00 Save $0.00
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.

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 design. JP’s fastest, liveliest and most manoeuvrable all-water toys. They accelerate in the flats, fly over chop and carve into wave faces. No matter the conditions, you’ll simply have the best time on the water – easy!
It has been 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 you don’t need to look any further. The Freestyle wave offers so many tuning options that it can be set up perfectly for any given day, no matter what the conditions. 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 which offers a long straight area for early planing and stability. The tail is relatively 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 and excellent responsiveness.
Ready for foil action! All LXT sizes come with JP’s reinforced Foil-Powerbox – even the small FSW 79 which probably makes it the smallest board for foiling on the market. This box widens the total wind range and opens the option for this new discipline of ‘flying’.
Offering all the traditional Freestyle Wave virtues in a new compact package that is more agile and even more fun on the water. They are fast, super comfortable and give you the confidence to push to the board’s limits. Suited for freestyle, small waves and bump and jump blasting, 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!
JP Vision Rig
J0VIS20800135Regular price Sale price $769.00 Save $0.00
This new rig is a mix of the two previous JP sail designs and features a new batten configuration. The number of battens and their position is adjusted to each sail size and to the range of use. The smaller sails come with only one full batten to keep the weight low, catch light winds easily and deliver power smoothly. The bigger the sail the more battens it has. The biggest ones come with four full and two short battens for a more stable profile and also have a moderately loose leech which allows the sail to perform also when the wind picks up a bit.
The Vision rig is still efficient and durable with a full-Dacron® cloth with PVC window which is light, strong, UV resistant and very durable for everyday use. Thus, it qualifies for the toughest test – the use in windsurfing centres! The soft sail material provides great feedback for beginners and is very forgiving at the same time. Kids can easy hold the reduced diameter boom and the 2-colour grip helps to differentiate between port and starboard tack.
The set contains a sail, a reduced diameter boom with uphaul, a 2 piece mast and mast foot. The whole rig comes in a neat bag for easy storage and transport.
23 JP Super Lightwind LXT 166
J3WBSPRLWLXT166Regular price $2,599.00 Save $0.00
No need for foiling !
Almost no board planes as early AND effortlessly as JP’s Super Lightwind. Since its introduction in 2011 it has occupied an almost unrivalled position in the market as one of the only dedicated light wind machines in any brand’s range! Planing in almost no wind and reaching top speed immediately, it rides comfortably, smoothly and incredibly easily for its size. Now, JP releases the 5th shape generation of this unique board design and like its predecessors, it benefits from the shape evolutions of the Slalom and Super Sport board – and this time also from the HydroFoil performance boards, too! Consequently, this newcomer is JP’s hottest toy ever for all light wind days, no matter if you plan to set up the board with fin or foil.
You have to try it to believe how much fun you can have in almost no wind: Light wind blasting!
The first priority on Shaper Werner Gnigler’s design brief was to combine outstanding early planing performance with an electrifying sensation and a user friendly ride.
To achieve this, the outline was updated: The board got slightly longer resulting in a much smoother outline curve for a smooth and effortless transition from non-planing to planing.
Another consequence of this is that the rider benefits from a more comfortable, parallel stance and the power is distributed evenly from both legs onto the rail. For a board this size, the shape feels small and alive under your feet, yet is much easier to control than previous models. Definitely a highlight of this new shape!
The easy ride and control also show in the board’s gybing ability. Not only does the outline take credit for improved maneuverability, but the rail shape also became thinner and smoother. This new rail shape – especially noticeable in the rear – allows for perfect stance and comfort in all of the various options of footstrap placements, perfectly suited for fin and foil use.
The concave deck lowers the pivot point of the mast base, reduces swing weight and provides additional control when pushing the limits and in carving maneuvers. The sail foot is pulled lower to naturally close the gap between sail and board in order to further enhance light wind efficiency.
The bottom features a ‘transforming Vee flow’ – the Vee is strongly pronounced in front of the mast base for a smooth ride and low-friction touch downs, it decreases between the foot straps and opens up again towards the tail. Thus, the board rides high and loose, ironing out all chop. The transforming V results in a curvy rail line which makes gybing smoother and helps to exit the turn at full speed.
Big cut-outs provide the perfect mix of release and lengthy rail line for control when sailed with fin. They thin-out the rails in the tail making it easy to rail up the board at high speeds and to carve through gybes. When foiling, they also offer extra flexibility, loading up the wings for takeoff.
The board doesn’t require a foil to be big fun in super light winds but for everybody who wants to try, JP’s Foil-Tuttlebox makes it an amazing foil weapon. The board’s volume and size not only get it up on the foil to fly super early, but the width provides the leverage to control the lift of the foil when the winds pick up and the pace increases.
You can but don’t need to foil to get action!
Werner Gnigler’s 5th generation of this light wind killer is overall more lively, controllable, maneuverable, electrifying – put simply: Maximum efficiency. The best choice for everybody who wants to push his light wind sailing without a foil!
Battle the planing barrier!
23 JP Super Ride
J3WBSPRRDLXT092Regular price Sale price $2,399.00 Save $0.00
Positioned right in the centre of the popular freeride class, these boards are simply great all-rounders. With these shapes every rider can reach high speeds easily, even when not fully powered. Additionally, the boards have control in abundance, hence, they ignore chop and their performance seems to have no limits when the conditions get rough. Hassle-free freeride performance for everybody: They are fun to sail and a treat to gybe. What they provide simply is a Super Ride!
The WindSurfing magazine passed the verdict, “… infallible riding comfort, a versatility to adapt to rider abilities and genuinely accessible performance …” What more could any freerider want?
And ‘accessible performance’ is, what sets this board apart from other freeride boards: the combination of user-friendliness is inextricably linked to performance in every aspect of freeriding. So, it really is fast and at the same time easy to control. In fact, it will be faster than the Super Sport for all riders who don’t wish to sail overpowered or don’t have the ability or physical strength to muscle down big sails and commit to a locked-in stance.
The slim hull contributes to the board’s smoothness – be it on downwind runs at top pace or in high-speed manoeuvres. Being narrower throughout than the Super Sport, especially in the tail, makes it easier to rail-up the board and carve through high speed gybes. When pushing the rail harder, it bites more aggressively, adapting the radius according to the changing demands of the rider.
This is also the main difference from the Magic Ride: the Super Ride is faster – comfortably – and the narrower hull makes it feel smother when carved into gybes at higher speeds.
The long, wide hull creates a big planing surface. As a result, it was possible to keep the rails thin throughout the whole length which provides optimal grip once the rail is set. Together with the ergonomic deck shape, the rail also makes for a super comfortable stance in every strap position. And no matter whether you chose the inboard or outboard option, it is always easy to get into and out of the foot straps.
The tail is wide and rounded, providing a big planing surface. The curved tail outline makes all kinds of gybes easy and staying on the plane throughout the gybe comes naturally.
Be it high speed carves or super tight turns – every rider will push his limits and nail more gybes than ever before.
The scoop rocker line and V flow come from our Slalom board range. The Super Ride has a high, loose water position and gives you the confidence of stability when speeding over chop.
Positioned right in the centre of the popular freeride class, all Super Rides are simply great all-round boards for every rider! The 3 big models are from the second shape generation and are not only available in LXT but also in ES technology. They are slightly longer in order to get going easily – especially for passive early planing. Their overall width enlarges the planing surface and improves stability.
True freeride values!
23 JP Magic Ride
J3WBMGCRDLXT099Regular price Sale price $2,399.00 Save $0.00
Stunning boards which do everything you‘d expect from a freeride board – and they do it exceptionally well and exceptionally easily! Feeling playful and small, they sit high on the water, delivering the lively and sporty feel which makes windsurfing so exciting. They are fast, yet super easy to sail and control. These wide and thin boards willingly plane early. Their gybing potential impresses riders of all levels!
Since its inception, this line has been a magic blend of everything an advanced rider wants from their funboard. While the originals focussed on ease, the second generation turned out more agile and lively. The shapes of this 3rd generation feature significantly improved control at speed and through chop, resulting in a sporty and energetic character which is incredibly easy to handle.
Consequently, these boards ride smooth and fast. They gybe willingly and carve into and through turns with ease. They surprise being JP’s most playful and manoeuvre oriented freeride boards. The magic of these boards pushes the performance and fun factor to the next level.
The Magic Ride is the undisputed ‘Master of the Turn’ in the freeride class: In gybes it feels effortless and refined even in challenging sea states. Still featuring its respected autopilot qualities, the MR requires little input from the rider and its forgivingness will pamper the intermediate rider and increase their success rate in gybes. It’s never been easier to enter the turn even at lower speeds and exit still on the plane – and planing through gybes is everybody’s desire!
At the same time its rail bite and its reliability when carving steady arcs will encourage the more advanced rider to push harder and corner with full dedication: Tighter and tighter turns, classic freestyle like duck gybes and carving 360s will be the name of the game. The Magic Ride can be quoted a bigger Freestyle Wave and is the most playful and manoeuvrable of JP’s freeride boards.
The true freerider: What is astonishing about this board line is its ease and smoothness. You’ll step on it and everything will happen naturally and predictably. The feel is “familiar” – like putting on an old pair of shoes: It just fits! Relaxed and confident you’ll achieve more speed than on previous generations of freeride boards. Despite these easy-riding characteristics, performance and agility are not compromised at all. British WINDSURF once stated that the biggest surprise was its speed and that its performance is comfortable if not exceptional. The hull feels quick, lively and responsive. Planing readily, it provides traction which inspires you to push your fun and adrenaline and to let the board fly on its fin – in control!
Magic Ride 159: Longer than the other sizes, it is stable and accessible and thus the perfect board for anyone stepping down from a beginner board with daggerboard. It is specially tuned for easy, early planing! Experiencing the planing sensation and getting hooked on the feeling happens naturally.
You will be stunned by the light and easy handling when blasting along.
• Still based on a thin and wide platform with adjusted proportions.
• Slightly narrower at the centre and longer -> the stretched-out waterline makes early planing easier and lifts the board effortlessly onto the plane. It provides directional stability at speed and more upwind power.
• Even volume distribution keeps the centre of gravity close to the mast base
• Wide nose makes it a stable platform when non-planing
• Wide tail outline -> offers great release, reduces drag and improves high wind control.
• Smooth deck shape guarantees a comfortable stance in every foot strap option and makes getting in and out of the straps easy.
• Increased V-flow underneath for a comfortable ride, effortless gybing and an exciting, lively feel.
• Good leverage to load up the fin.
NOTE: The ES boards come with the standard Powerbox and only the LXT models feature JP’s specially reinforced Foil-Powerbox.
An epitome of freeriding: A state of the art synergy between easy handling and performance. This manoeuvre-oriented freeride board shines with fascinating manoeuvrability and easy carving gybes. The ease, smoothness, forgivingness and control enable incredible performance levels and improve everyone’s riding fun.

23 JP Foil Slate
J3FBFLSLTIPR082Regular price Sale price $1,549.00 Save $0.00
The FOIL SLATE is a top choice of the riders and the most flexible board in the market at the same time! For this reason, our shape was awarded the “SUP Paddlesports of the Year 2020” at the PaddleExpo, the biggest trade fair of paddle sports in the world. Werner Gnigler created this great shape for those who wanted to have an all-in-one water sports board. Please note: SUP Foil, SUP Surf Foil, SUP Downwind Foil, Wing Foil, Windsurf Foil, SUP Surf, SUP, Wing Surf and who knows what else can be tried with the Foil Slate!
Stable, fast and reactive are the main strengths of the Foil Slates. Use the extra speed to glide across flat sections of the wave or to hit the lip with full power. The bottom shape features a V entry that flows into a deep single concave ending with a subtle V right at the center fin position. This ensures a smooth lift and an easy rail-to-rail transfer.
Two US long track boxes are available for foil sports, allowing different foil positions based on the rider skills, the size of the foil and the use. On the other hand, the boards are equipped with a set of thruster fins and three FCS boxes for Stand-Up Paddle use.
The FOIL SLATEs also come with strap plugs positioned for windsurf-foiling.
23 JP Slalom Pro
J3WBSLALMPRO062Regular price $2,899.00 Save $0.00
Control and top speed – that’s what it’s all about when you want to be on the podium. The three Slalom boards –62.5, 72 and 85– are designed for blasting at PWA competition speed. Also, lighter riders will remain in control even when fully overpowered enabling them to get up to top speed. The 85 provides great planing power in light conditions. And the smallest 55 has proven its qualities on speed slalom tracks like the Defi Wind.
When designing this line, our focus was to increase the average speed across the race course, paying special attention to gybing where some of the biggest gains can be made during a race. Here, the target was to maintain speed throughout the turn and to exit faster.
The 3 bigger shapes offer an improved, more locked and stable riding position. Far less effort is required to reach and maintain top speed and all of them provide great early planing power and a wide range of use. The tails of these boards are wide and provide lots of leverage towards the fin, resulting in more power and control.
The smooth deck shape guarantees a super comfortable stance. The rider preserves energy to push his limits on longer runs.
All sizes feature an additional pad wedge between the tail straps providing a more connected feel.
Each board size features a unique tail cut-out configuration to find the perfect mix of release and lengthy rail line for control.
From the mid-section of the board towards the nose we lifted the apex point of the rail. That way we gained some volume in the rail which helps exiting gybes with speed.
Beside the concave deck shape we used an additional recess for the deck box. The pivot point of the mast base drops and provides additional control when pushing the limits and during the gybe. “Close the gap”: The lowered sail foot creates the most efficient airflow.
The first cut-outs of the 72 and 85 start much further forward and the curve of the cut-outs increases towards the tail. The tail is re-designed for a more even water flow around the fin in order to provide steady fin pressure for permanent power and top speed. The 72 finishes with a wider inner cut-out for more stability and the 85 with a more pointy finish for extra release. The 62,5’s different cut-out starts closer to the fin providing more stability in high winds. Behind the fin, we reduced the surface area for perfect water release.
Six core design elements guarantee the perfect set-up for PWA racing:
DUAL TAIL OUTLINES – individually adjusted to each board size. The cut-out configuration of the bottom outline reduces the wetted surface and creates multiple release points for low drag and high speed. The deck outline over the cut-outs is wider and due to the further outboard rear strap position the rider can load more power onto the fin for more control and speed.
TRANSFORMING VEE FLOW along the bottom – the Vee is strongly pronounced in front of the mast base, decreasing between the foot straps and opening again towards the tail. Thus, the board rides high and loose, ironing out all the chop. The transforming V results in a curvy rail line which makes gybing smoother and helps to exit the turn at full speed.
COMPACT CONCEPT – The parallel outline in the mid-section of the board maximizes the planing surface at the mast base, lifting the boards onto the plane instantly.
THIN PROFILE – in the nose area reduces drag since this is the part which is affected most by the wind. This, in combination with a sunken deck, means we managed to keep the swing weight centred for great top end control.
DECK SHAPES – Stance
A tiny but essential fine-tuning of one of the key advantages of the previous models: The more comfortable deck shape guarantees a relaxed ride, allowing the rider to focus on going faster and faster.
DECK SHAPES – Efficiency
The board features the proven concave deck reducing swing weight and now comes with an additional recess for the deck box, dropping the pivot point of the mast base.
