The whole range is based on radical surf board designs adapted and adjusted for the needs of SUP. Each size has a specific bottom shape concept suited to the size. They are equipped with a narrower nose section, higher entry and extra rocker for real surf board feeling. The more pulled-in pointy nose section does not limit the rider in radical bottom turns as its combination with the fast scoop rocker line develops heaps of drive. Thin smooth rails slice effortless through the water surface and provide amazing grip. This in combination with the accelerating tail kick gives the boards an incredible loose ride. The unique fin angle concept has proved to be unmatched when it comes down to speed necessary for either catching waves or busting aerials.
The whole range comes with an FCS plug in the nose to attach your GoPro camera. All boards come with a thruster set-up and also feature a mastfoot insert to attach a windsurf rig and are great windsurfing wave boards.
The PRO layup of our SURF and SURF WIDE BODY 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 optimizing of the fiber direction. Importantly, the JP PRO boards are the lightest boards on the market that come with a deck pad.

THE LIGHTEST BOARDS ON THE MARKET THAT COME WITH A DECK PAD
In 2013 JP SUP built a strong team of SUP surfers with Keahi De Aboitiz, Geoff Breen and Jackson Close and together with great input from Kauli Seadi and Jason Polakow, were really able to push the development of the SURF line to the extremes for 2014. The level that those guys are at is demanding for smaller and more radical shapes and therefore for 2014 we developed three new sizes; 8’2”x28”, 8’0”x27” and even 7’4”x27”.
