2019 JP Wave Slate Pro
Fast, early to plane and super-efficient in generating and maintaining speed, making sessions in mediocre wave conditions very exciting and vivacious! These all-round play machines feature a very wide range of use and are a lot of fun in all kinds of waves.
The parallel outline is the base of this board concept. It reduces drag and increases lift, resulting in more speed and early planing. Together with the efficient volume distribution, the parallel outline grants stability which is why these boards now can be shorter than previous concepts. The shortness makes tight turns come natural and is the base for feeling small and compact in the air. Thus, the swing weight is centred, speeding up rotations and change of direction. Additionally, shorter boards fit better into steep sections or smaller waves without getting stuck.
The second generation of our Wave Slates features a bottom concept which is widely used in surf boards and combines two totally different rocker lines:
On the one hand the quite flat rocker along the centre-line supports early planing and overall performance partnered with a great deal of control.
On the other hand, the strong V and narrow outline at the nose and tail create more curve at the rail which takes over once railed up.
Consequently, this combination results in a surf board like manoeuvre feeling paired with the performance expected from a modern windsurf board.
The narrow nose and a strong V in the bottom with additional rocker in the front keep the shoulders high and dry providing a safe feel during turns and on the wave face and when lining up jumps.
Between the footstraps the deep single concave channels and accelerates the water to provide additional lift for early planing and speed.
Towards the tail the flat V creates a great water release and in combination with the slim outline enhances the versatility on the wave and the potential to carve super tight.
The boards come with a thruster fin setup but the hull is equipped with 2 Mini Tuttle and 3 Slot Boxes to open up all trim options and to suit every rider’s style.
