JP Custom Flyboy Kiteboard

£625.00£775.00

JP CUSTOM 5.8 x 18.5 x 2×1/8th  5-1/2 kg 22 litres

The JP kiteboard the “Flyboy” has a balanced rocker evolved from a surfboard but specific for kitesurfing – thin rails, decent concave in the hull, tucked under rails, reinforced deck, EPS blank, wooden stringer, carbon deck strip, FCS 2 fin boxes, and more volume just behind nose section to keep you planing through gybes or tacks.  We reckon this one is a winner for the south coast in cross onshore conditions and abroad so don’t just take our word for come down the beach and test it.

Description

JP CUSTOM 5.8 x 18.5 x 2×1/8th  5-1/2 kg 22 litres

JP custom kiteboards is a project we have been working on for a while with Neal Gent – JP is a custom surfboard builder in Wales who has been making custom SUPS for the last 5 years.  JP has been building surfboards for the last 29 years and he even built his own line of windsurf boards, Wave Graffti back in the day.  John Purton who is the head shaper at JP has his own shaping machine (CNC) so accurate replicas of the perfect shape can be built each time.  So if you want to scale a model for your weight and ability its pretty straight forward to do.  The hard part is getting the shape right which is what we feel we have done with Neal, JP and other team riders .

The JP kiteboard the “Flyboy” has a balanced rocker evolved from a surfboard but specific for kitesurfing – thin rails, decent concave in the hull, tucked under rails, reinforced deck, EPS blank, wooden stringer, carbon deck strip, FCS 2 fin boxes, and more volume just behind nose section to keep you planing through gybes or tacks.  We reckon this one is a winner for the south coast in cross onshore conditions and abroad so don’t just take our word for come down the beach and test it.

The difference between a custom and production is a custom board should have all the extra performance once you have down the shape that works for you  –the production version is often heavier and slightly more durable for dents but will often lack the edge on performance –every production that is made has been developed by custom boards first then put into production.  Sometime production boards are 2 years in the making so the custom shape is developed and is now the latest cutting edge design.

You can customise your board with the following options:

  • Choose either Epoxy Carbon or Epoxy Inegra construction
  • Choose a tri fin setup or a 5 fin setup
  • Choose a strapless board or one with inserts added

 

All boards come with a tail pad included.

*There will be a 4 week lead time when ordering this custom kiteboard*

  1. Review by Rosco Moore: tested at West Wittering (70 kg rider with 7m RRD Religion)

    The main thing you notice with the JP and what sets it apart from productions boards is how smooth it feels in the water. It soaks up all of the chop and feels very planted which is great for the bouncy south coast conditions we get!!

    And that feel is down to two main things:
    – The super thin rails (2 1/8) really help with this as it allows the board to sit low in the water and give it that planted feel. 
    – The polyester core with carbon middle strip gives the board that great flex that soaks up the chop so you can really commit to the turns.

    The bit of extra width that the board has in the mid section helps you get going early and gives you a bit more stability for trying manoeuvres. Unlike production boards the width comes with very thin rails so having that extra stability does not hinder your carving ability and control.
     
    This a fantastic one board option that should cover you for a massive range of conditions/locations  and most importantly works great in the conditions that we get down here on the South Coast of the UK!!!
