FREESTYLE WAVE
Werner
Gnigler designed these new small fins to match the new generation of his Freestyle
Wave boards. Generally the fins are thin and therefore ideal for use in higher
winds and/or waves. They are slightly thicker at the base and become thinner
towards the tip. At the base the rake angle is still quite steep which enables
the board to deliver good performance in flat water. Along the whole leading
edge the rake increases steadily, resulting in a nicely bent fin with a soft
tip. When sailing the fin is very versatile, extremely maneuverable and controllable.
The smaller the fin, the more suitable it is for waves.
These new fins complement the general characteristics of the and especially
the JP Freestyle Wave boards – especially their superb ‘wave-ability’ qualities.

Fin sizes Sail sizes Board volumes
21 cm / 8.3" 5.4m 95L
23cm / 9.0" 5.8m 105 l
25 cm / 9.8" 4.2-6.0m 115 l
27 cm / 10.6" 4.5-6.4m 85 – 125 l

FREESTYLE
These
new foils have been developed in conjunction with the new JP Freestyle boards.
The fins support the allround character of the boards. They are short to enable
maneuverability. The profile is quite long even towards the tip which means
that the fins have enough area and power form the tip to push the boards through
the planing barrier – even for a rider with passive style. The rake angle
is quite steep and slightly but constantly bends more and more towards the
‘wide’ tip. The trailing edge is bend similar. This gives good twist from
the tip down towards the base, so the fins are controllable in a wide range
of conditions.
The fin’s most impressive quality is its allround character. The Freestyles
have a balanced and neutral feel and performance in all situations. They deliver
great power in lighter winds. And they are versatile.

Fin sizes Sail sizes Board volumes
28 cm 4.7-6.5m 85-115L
29cm 5.0-7.0m 90-120L
30 cm 5.4-7.4m 95-125L

FREESTYLE PRO
This
is a totally new fin design for experienced and expert windsurfers – and its
hot! It is extremely short with a lot of area, a long profile length and a
small rounded tip.
The Freestyle Pro fins are designed for maximum versatility and extreme freestyling.
The short design ensures that virtually all radical tricks are now possible.
They give every board a looser ride, ready to respond immediately to the sailor’s
pressure. Put pressure on the fin and you can make the board slide, making
intentional spin-outs possible.
In tail first maneuvers like the Willy Skipper the short fins will barely
reach down to the water and therefore have no tendency to track.
The long profile and the big area create enough lift for good performance.
With constant sail pressure and upright stance – wave board style – the Freestyle
Pro’s will perform well when going upwind. The short design also means less
resistance and therefore higher speeds when reaching.

Fin sizes Sail sizes Board volumes
20.5 cm 5.5m 95L
21.5 cm 5.0-6.0m 85-105L
22.5 cm 5.4-6.7m 95-115L

SEAWEED
WAVE 23 & SEAWEED FREERIDE 33
The right rake angle is the key to this design. Seaweed, plastic bags
or other rubbish simply slip past.
The rake angle also ensures smooth entry into turns.
The area of the fin is quite big and it therefore offers enough lift for general
sailing fun.
The Seaweed Wave 23 is ideal for smaller boards and sails and the Seaweed
Freeride 33 has been designed for use with bigger volume boards with larger
sails.

Fin sizes Sail sizes Board volumes
23 cm up to approx 6.2m up to 110L
33 cm above approx 6.2m above 110L
