2017 JP Freestyle Wave FWS Construction
ONE FOR ALL FOREVER
JP introduced the first Freestyle Wave in 2001. Subject to constant shape evolution and fine tuning, the line is still state-of-the-art in its class. So, no matter how many brands copy JP’s concept or even the Freestyle Wave name, if you want the true original you don’t need to look anywhere else.
At home in all waters, these all-rounders offer an incredible wide range of use. They excel as freeride, freestyle, bump & jump and wave boards and no matter how you’ll use them, you’ll just simply have your best time on the water – easy.
PRO = PRO EDITION Technology (thruster fin setup)
FWS = FULL WOOD SANDWICH Technology (single fin)
while the Pro Editions feature a thruster setup to excel in all wave conditions.The FWS boards come with 2cm longer main fins than the PRO models.
The PRO boards additionally come with mini tuttle sidefin boxes, thruster fins and covers for the sidefin boxes when used as single fin.
British WINDSURF stated, “Perfectly at home on flat water, the 102 really comes into its own when used in a coastal environment …. highly recommended”. French PLANCHEMAG also selected it as favorite of its group stating, “It is also very effective in surf due to the flow of its turns, the quick transition from one rail to the other and a strong grip of the fins”.
These lively and exciting boards are the ultimate boards for medium to strong winds. They are super fast across the wind and also upwind. They would make excellent straight line freeriders only, but they aren’t, simply because they are too much fun to carve and jump. See a little wave and you’ll be inspired to launch high into the sky like a rocket with the boards remaining in total control until touchdown. See a flat section and you will want to go for your next, ‘most radical’ jibe – ever.
Yet, it’s in maneuvers where they really stand out: feeling like large wave boards they carve superbly whether you crank them hard or carve them smooth. Their reliable bite and grip in fast turns will motivate you to carve harder and harder on their thin, sharp rail into the next jibe or bottom turn.
Therefore the Freestyle Waves also qualify as JP’s fastest wave boards, suited for advanced riders with only little wave experience or for heavier riders or for those who sail in varying conditions.
Due to their speed it is easy to accelerate to ‘your’ perfect section of the onshore wave or side shore roller.
The short and compact boards offer sufficient stability and the well rounded dome deck ensures a very comfortable stance in the straps, no matter if they are mounted inboard for maneuvers or nearer to the rail for freeride performance.
The FWS models come with a single fin while the Pro Editions feature a thruster setup to excel in all wave conditions.
