About JP Race Paddleboards:
For 2014, JP developed a new concept for displacement speed machines. Alongside the four new dedicated race shapes, they have four shapes of slightly wider race siblings – the SPORTSTERs. The SPORTSTERs can be either no-compromise full-on race boards for the bigger guys or relaxed touring shapes for the lighter SUPers.
In both, the RACE and the SPORTSTER group JP decided to create flat water and all water versions for the 12’6’’ and the 14’0” class. The RACE and SPORTSTERs feature the same respective dedicated waterlines but differ in width. The SPORTSTERs come in affordable Wood Sandwich technology as well as in full Carbon wrap technology while the RACE shapes come exclusively in the no-compromise full Carbon wrap technology.
