2017 JP-Australia SURF PRO EDITION
TOP TO BOTTOM PERFECTION
The JP-Australia Surf range is designed for the “no-compromise”, top to bottom performance in the proper surf conditions for riders of all sizes. The whole Surf line has unique features: single to double concave flowing into a V tail, pulled in nose and tail, progressive rocker line and thin rails.
All of the PRO boards come with a 5 fin setup option and 3 fins. The smaller sizes from 7’2” through to 8’6” all come with 3 FCS plugs for the center fin position instead of the US box to keep the weight down to a minimum. The 3 plugs provide 2 center fin position options and the boards come with a RTM thruster fin set. The 8’10” and the 9’2” have the 5 fin option with the US box for the center fin to be able to accommodate a bigger fin. The Wood Edition and the AST Surf boards come with standard – US box thruster set up.
The PRO layup of our SURF boards has no carbon as we believe that carbon makes the boards too stiff for the surf. We have kept a natural flex pattern with strategic dual density sandwich layup and optimized fiber direction.
For 2018 we have developed rail construction with visible Alutex fiber on the PRO boards and Basalt fiber on the Wood Edition boards. Alutex on the PRO boards adds the abrasion resistance but it doesn’t add stiffness as we didn’t want to alter the flex pattern of the boards. Basalt on the Wood Edition boards adds strength, stiffness and abrasion resistance. Basalt is 100% volcanic rock, a natural and sustainable fiber. We switched all the resins in all of our boards to BIO resin and are removing EPS from packing to make another step forward towards creating sustainable boards.
All the Surfs feature a pad tail kick
Surfs PRO and WE feature a centered pad arch
