Four state of the art Freestyle designs in a modern, compact short board shape. Their awesome handling inspires the JP team riders to come up with new moves and a more radical style of sailing all the time. The lively boards are quick to plane with rapid acceleration and these sprint qualities are the prerequisite to perform in the small, limited competition areas. They jump very well which helps to pull-off all the big stunts and double moves. Awesome boards to show your style!
German SURF found that it accelerates powerfully, rides free and fast, and maintains its speed in lulls or when swapping to switch stance and summarizes: The reference regarding pop and sliding double moves offers maximum potential for good riders!
It was another great year for the JP freestyle team in 2017 with three riders finishing in the top-5 of the PWA – Amado Vrieswijk NB-20 was crowned Vice World Champion, followed the Belgian rider Yentel Caers B-16 and the French youngster Sam Esteve F-79 in 4th and 5th place. Two JP riders made the EFPT podium: 19 years old Sam Esteve had his EFPT debut in 2014, finished 5th in 2016 and now he became European Vice Champion in 2017 with his team mate Yentel Caers next to him on the podium in 3rd position. These successes reflect the efficiency of the boards. Impressive, high scoring moves require fast rotations. Therefore, all the swing weight is centred close to the mast base and turning point of the board. Due to the compact setup the riders stand close to the rig in a very comfortable stance. This is very important not only for big moves but also for sailing in regular stance or when going switch. Our riders love the board’s high water position and looser ride. The V-flow in the bottom creates enormous lift underfoot and to achieve high top speed and instant pop.
They are stable wide platforms to cover the biggest possible range. The centred volume distribution is the basis of all our Freestyle boards. The outline is rather parallel in the mid-section to maximize the planing surface. The round outline towards the tail improves manoeuvrability and unmatched pop not just for your first jump but also for your following air moves performed during combination moves.
The sharp tuck line running from the tail to the mast area is responsible for the grip and drive creating maximum speed instantly. Towards the nose a super soft tuck line offers an easy transition from aerial manoeuvres into sliding tricks by stopping the rail from catching.
The compact Freestyle boards accelerate superbly for powerful jumps. The shortness of all the shapes enhances the handling in all moves and speeds up all rotations. The lively and direct feel imposes confidence so that amateurs and pros alike will pull-off more moves in greater style.
