JP Australia Surf Slate FOIL converted
2016 JP Australia 7'6 x 26 Surf Slate - FOIL converted
The combination of carefully balanced design features allows the user to come up with a new style of riding. The super parallel outline is the key. It generates speed instantly when the board is railed up, reduces drag and increases lift. It offers the most efficient volume distribution possible, therefore the boards can be shorter and narrower than ever before.
The reduced overall length of the board eliminates the swing weight and lets itself be thrown around.
The chopped off diamond nose is equipped with a soft channel in the center with bevels on each side for a forgiving “no pearling” entry and comfortable rail bite. This flows into a single concave bottom towards the tail channel with hard edges.
The double diamond tail offers additional grip, pressure release and directional control with low drag.
With this concept the rider will experience a total new riding sensation with higher degrees of speed, electric wave attack and radical aerial potential.
The well-known JP-Australia PRO edition construction is the cherry on top with the weight of only 6 kg for the 7’2”x26” Pro Model.
The boards feature a 5 fin option and come with 4 x RTM fins.
The whole range comes with an FCS plug in the nose to attach your GoPro camera.
The parallel outline has a proven relationship with SUP Foil boarding as the foil (under the board) increases the boards stability , something which these shapes already have ..so win win in both areas whether you choose to foil the board or ride as a conventional SUP. The size of the board is also important as once you are up and 'foiling' a bigger board is more difficult to pump and turn, these shapes are ideal and you benefit from a super lightweight dual sandwich construction board.
