For several years the four JP Freestyle boards were state of the art. Shaper Werner Gnigler tried to further develop the line several times and he managed to improve certain characteristics. But when improving one side, too much was lost on another. And in the end, the production boards were more ‘complete’ and remained the better package, overall. But not this year...
The key in modern freestyle is explosive pop and stability of the board, the big challenge is providing stability not just in a regular stance. Now most moves are also performed switch stance which brings an extra task to the board design.
The scoop rocker line is flater in the mid-section of the board for improved early planing. The board jumps on the plane effortlessly. The new bottom shape has a more pronounced V from the mast base forward. In combination with the soft tuck line in that part of the board makes them very forgiving. This guarantees a relaxed ride when going switch even in choppy conditions. You do not lose speed when going for double moves or riding switch. This feature also prevents the rail from catching during sliding moves.
There is in the tail area added slightly more width and area to have the perfect platform to pop the board in light wind. At the same time it is not too big for explosive pop in high winds. The noticeable new outline and volume distribution brings the swing weight closer to the mast base. Rotations happen a lot quicker and more radical moves become possible. Towards the tail we run a defined tuck line in combination with a rather flat V bottom shape. These features create instant power, fantastic grip and a loose ride.
The proven 85 and 105 remain unchanged and with the completeness of their balanced qualities they are still the best JP freestyle all-rounders in their size.
All boards now come with a slightly longer fin supporting the more powerful moves and faster action.
