RACE – FLAT WATER
SUP racing has become very specialized and depending on the conditions you need a suitable board to achieve the desired results one is looking for. Compromise is never an option and will not get you the win. JP developed 2 sizes of the RACE FLAT WATER, the 14‘x24.5“ and the 12‘6“x25“. The RACE FLAT WATER 14‘ offers more stability due to its length – as a result, the overall width could be reduced slightly to maximize the speed of the board.
The new race boards come with a distinguishable narrower nose section. The sharp piercing nose is able to cut through the water’s surface, offering the longest possible waterline. With the use of a long water line, these RACE boards are able to produce and attain maximum speeds with every paddle stroke, thus creating a better overall and efficient board.
Another cutting edge feature of the new RACE boards is the dome deck of the nose. It adds lots of volume to the nose and allows the side winds and waves to fl ow over the deck radius without interfering with your paddling direction.
In addition to be effective in all conditions, if the nose gets pushed under water it will pop out immediately displacing the water as it runs off instantly and the board is able to continue without being submerged.
The mid-section of the board has a sunk-in cockpit with a flat V bottom shape providing maximum stability for the rider. The scoop rocker line in this area is kept rather flat to enable the hull to maintain high speeds over a longer time. A parallel outline in the mid-section tapers down to a narrow tail. The flat scoop rocker line from the mid-section of the board increases to a reasonable tail kick. These two design features guarantee a clean water release with minimum drag. The cross section of the board has been designed that no water will stay on the deck and can run off immediately. For these new shapes, the effective design doesn‘t need drainpipes.
Utilizing all the most cutting edge features of modern day SUP racing, this is a dedicated race board which is the perfect tool for winners!
RACE – ALL WATER
The RACE ALL WATER is the perfect tool for all kinds of competition formats which pop up around the world. Not just down wind races, also races where you have to go through breaking waves on the way out and try to surf them on the way in.
The RACE ALL WATER‘s primary goal is to take advantage of the open ocean swells.
It must be easy to catch a swell while maintaining speed to ride it as long as possible and to connect easily to the next swell.
The bottom curve of the board needs to fit in between the swells thus creating a constant slope which keeps the board moving at all times effi ciently with speed and precision to avoid ever coming to a halt.
Therefore the RACE ALL WATER has a lot more overall curve compared to its flat water sibling.
The displacement bow has been rounded off to create instant lift – if the nose does get submerged, the rounded deck quickly allows the water to run off the deck immediately and the board is able to continue gliding on the water’s surface. On the RACE ALL WATER only the very front part of the board has a sharp piercing section which punches through a swell that is too steep to glide over.
The thin profile of the board and the flat deck ensure a low standing position. This, combined with the extra width, provides immense stability. The wider tail section complements the rider’s ability to catch every swell possible. You’ll find sufficient standing area to move around and to steer the board through the surf with ease.
Round rails make the boards very forgiving. They won’t catch on fast glides and turning becomes very easy.
