Wind is the most important factor which influences windsurfing performance. Planning in marginal wind conditions seems like a very difficult task, but it can be done if you have the right board. The new 2012 JP Super Lightwind is especially designed to get you planning and going fast in marginal wind conditions. The Super Lightwind is engineered using a blue print similar to a Formula board, featuring a wider and shorter body.

The board also packs extra volume distributed in a smart way throughout the body. This way it gets on a plane and can be powered up in light winds just as easy as a formula board. Unlike a formula board, the JP Super Lightwind is much easier to get in and out of the straps and can perform very nice jibes without much effort. A special scoop rocker line keeps the rider in control at high speeds or while performing technical maneuvers. It also provides better acceleration and top speed. The rail shape also assures improved maneuverability as well as a relaxed sailing stance. A special bottom design, featuring and increased V in the middle and a reduced V in the tail area assures a very smooth glide and improves the jibbing ability.

The wider tail assures fat and accurate turns. Additional tail cut outs provide a very loose feel and assure optimal release. The JP Super Lightwind is fast and fun to ride in marginal wind conditions. It can be used by expert and less experience riders alike. It is available in Gold Edition (Textreme Carbon deck and UD Carbon bottom), Pro edition (Biax Carbon Technology) and FWS edition (Full Wood Sandwich technology).

The V along the entire bottom length makes the ride smooth. It also keeps you comfortable in chop. You can easily jibe with this board and stay relaxed while you do that. Planes nice, but not very fast. I don't like that it feels too heavy....more

The Super Lightwind feels like a larger X-Cite ride. It runs very smooth and can reach fast speeds in marginal winds. It planes nicely and has good upwind tracking. It is a good board for casual racing and freeride. The deck feels really comfortable....more
