2012 JP Australia X-Cite Ride
These are test winning, easy going and super exciting freeride boards with excellent maneuverability for medium to light winds. The boards inspire confidence through their easy delivery of performance and control. Made for freeride beginners and sporty riders alike.
JP has created a board range with unrivaled sailing comfort, easily accelerating towards max speed that planes through jibes without hesitation. They created boards which are ultimately easy to control, allowing everyone to go fast.
The rather straight outline curve between the straps makes them react quickly to initiating maneuvers. Once railed up into the jibe you can switch to auto pilot. The board maintains its turn and carries the speed right through, making planing jibes a reality for beginners and intermediates. You can also choose the more sporty style where you drive the rails harder and go for a high speed carving jibe. No matter what you do you will nearly always exit your jibe as fast as you entered.
The straight outline curve gives you a parallel body position (to the centerline). This provides great comfort and keeping the sail sheeted in is easy. A parallel stance also creates even pressure on both feet. Long runs become effortless and you will experience high speed in total comfort. The deck shape and radius provide ultimate comfort in every strap option.
The scoop rocker line makes the board feel light under your feet and ride high on the water to fly over the chop. The double concave Vee in the front and mid section of the boards also supports the comfortable ride, giving you the feeling that the chop does not even exist.
Incredible early planing freeride boards which offer a unique riding sensation as they go so fast, so comfortably. Feeling very crisp and light under foot, the X-Cite Rides are very responsive to foot steering. Here is big fun for the advanced who will enjoy carving jibes, as well as for short board beginners, who need a forgiving board.
