GLIDE wings are made of pre-preg carbon layup with inner foam construction for maximum durability to weight ratio. This setup creates a natural tendency to roll into turns maintaining a nice balance during your ride.
The front wing is designed with a pronounced rounded “angle of attack” and an elliptical bend shape. While flying, this thick leading edge on the front wing naturally closes the radius of your turn, tightening it. Far back, the angled down tail wings maintain a self- stabilizing roll allowing an easy turning performance.
During this momentum, the GLIDE tail wing will always come back to a flat position, stabilizing the turn.
Freestyle / Crossover (FX). Two words that perfectly describe how freestyle has evolved to mix the styles of hooked and unhooked trick riding.
In todays high performance arena it is imperative to have a kite that will deliver performance on both fronts. Whether you are doing the most technical unhooked tricks or throwing massive hooked kite loops the FX will get it done... with style.
The FX produces the sensitivity of ‘slack’ while unhooked and the power and control while hooked. Two fronts that will take your riding to entirely new levels.
The dampening properties of the Paulownia wood core are perfectly suited for the Ace wood model. The Ace wood provides a smooth yet powerful ride even in choppy water. The enhanced flex allows you to keep an edge in less than ideal water conditions. This makes for a greater level of control on your take offs and provides a soft landing that your knees will thank you for.
The 2017 Ace Wood board provides a dampened ride for any and all progressive freeriding.
The XO is specifically designed for female riders who appreciate versatile, predictable, performance, for any type of riding in a wide range of conditions.
The high level of women’s performance on the world kitesurfing stage commands a new approach to equipment design. The XO is a high performance freestyle / freeride model that is optimized for lighter weights and generally smaller riders. The flex pattern is softer for a smoother ride and the stance widths are slightly narrower than the rest of our range. The XO is built on the design platform of our popular ACE model to give it a wide range of performance opportunities.

The FX kite is specifically designed for riders that mix hooked and unhooked freestyle tricks, love jumping big and kiteloops.
The world of Freestyle / Crossover kiting has evolved into an exciting genre in our sport. Once a very narrow and technical discipline is now a mix of technical tricks and massive aerial maneuvers, both hooked-in and unhooked. For this you need a kite with the sensitivity and ‘slack’ when unhooked and the ability to boost a massive hooked-in kite loop.
The FX delivers on these two fronts and more with the power and handling to take your riding seriously.

The JP-Australia Surf range is designed for the “no-compromise”, top to bottom performance in the proper surf conditions for riders of all sizes. The whole Surf line has unique features: single to double concave flowing into a V tail, pulled in nose and tail, progressive rocker line and thin rails. The sophisticated color scheme, with dark shades on the deck and orange rails, creates a powerful design to this product. In addition, its pure performance-oriented layup makes the Surf the best choice for the perfectionist wave riders.
All boards come with a Thruster fin set and FCS plugs to choose between various fin positions: single-fin, twin-fin, thruster or quad setup. The boxes of the center fin allow to choose between 2 slightly different fin positions (aft or a little bit forward) for individual fine-tuning.
1. PRO tech back for the 2021 Surf
2. Thinned out rails
3. Deeper single concave transitioning into a small V through a double concave
4. Pulled in nose slightly more rocker-line reduced a bit - more speed
Any day spent in boardshorts is a good day. The retro vibes are strong in these men's shorts as we dug into the Dakine archives for color and print inspiration to celebrate our 40-year heritage. They feature four-way stretch for a full range of motion in and out of the water.

JP’s unique foil all-rounder ! Apparently the market has been waiting eagerly for this concept as the sales started brilliantly. These very compact shapes have little to no limitations regarding the range of use and suit the whole windsurf foil community because fun is their main target. Everybody will be able to enjoy foiling as easily as possible – in every aspect of this new discipline. Slightly longer that comparable designs on the market, they offer more ease and accessibility. And now, novelties upgrade this line: Specially adapted to wing foiling, the boards now feature an elongated pad and additional footstrap plugs further forward. The brand-new, small model, the 105, suits lighter riders and everybody who wants a more playful and nimble toy. The board to enjoy foil fun – easy!
Foil Mount & Positions:
The strong construction is built to last and can take all the forces. The plate mount and the Tuttle box fitting cover all needs and rider preferences. Being able to adjust not only the mast track, but the Foil as well, allows the rider to tune this board exactly to their own specific foiling style – and the scale helps you to find the right position of the foil.
The centre foot strap option with the huge adjustment range is an essential key feature and the base for control over both rails. This grants a safe feel and quick progress for the newcomers to foiling as they will stay balanced easily and prevents entry level riders from losing the stability in the air.
For experienced sailors the centred straps mean absolute freedom to get creative: The toy of joy offers everything for the advanced rider who wants to push his limits and take his freestyle know-how into the new world of foiling.
The manoeuvre oriented rider will enjoy flying down the smooth swell faces, or even taking it into the waves for some long effortless flights.
The FreeFoils also come with the common outboard 4 strap setup for regular foiling. They track extremely well up and down wind and allow a fast and efficient flight mode – ideal for all freeriders who want to use powerful foils and to sail fast.
The comfortable deck shape is also very user friendly for the strapless riders out there. It offers the most responsive feel, at the same time being as forgiving as it can get.
Being narrow enough, they allow easy foot movement for gybes as well as transition from rail to rail.
The voluminous rails in combination with a small bevel provide lift on occasional touch-downs for a smooth and a forgiving glide.
The insert options allow to trim the mast base and foil closer together and quite far forward. This opens a total new window for the advanced rider as the board gets more lively and direct for immediate response. So, this option is especially interesting for the freestyle and wave community.
For Wing Foiling, strap-less or with straps, mount the plate of the foil all the way forward in the track boxes. New: the boards feature an elongated pad to the area where you stand when winging and for those who like it, there are additional wing footstrap plugs.
With sufficient volume and plenty of float, these boards get you up and flying in the lightest breeze. Once airborne, the reduced swing weights offer a very stable ride without limitations, no matter if you want to blast along, ride waves, be active in the freestyle-foil madness or join the latest trend – wing foiling. Ease, manoeuvrability, and control for everybody !
Ideal for all types of freeride foiling. Whether it be just cruising along, riding strapless, riding with foot straps, wave foiling, wing surfing, teaching people how to foil behind a boat, or even freestyle, this board can do it all, and can do it all REALLY WELL ! Suitable for all conditions and levels.
