JP Freestyle Wave 102 Pro
|4,7 - 6.9
|Technora Kevlar/Biax Carbon Sandwich
Bought in November 2017 secondhand via internet. I had been borrowing Martijn's Syncro 103 for a while, but he didn't want to sell it. So started looking for my own board in this range. Could buy this JP FSW Pro, that seemed to fit well with my FSW 84 Pro.
Board sails very easily, planes early, jumps well, jibes easily. You can do some waveriding with it, but it reams a board that is 62cm wide d without much tail rocker. Especially if the water is flatter, this board is clearly a lot more fun than a real waveboard. And in waves you can really have a lot of fun with it. Unfortunately, this is not a version with thruster.
The board is very light and well built, one of the last really good Pro versions from JP, after this they became a whole lot of swords ern of glass ipv carbon kevlar.
After buying my Goya One 95, this board had too much overlap with the Goya. And since it cannot be used with a 6.6, I went looking for something bigger, but not too big either. After buying and testing my Patrik F-Cross 113 a few times, sold this super board.
Sailed the board mainly with 5.3 to 6.0.
Easy: everything from Freeride to Wave. Board planes super early, only to get upwind you need a longer fin.
