2018 JP-Australia FREESTYLE WAVE FWS
The all new versions of these best sellers are a must have for anybody who is looking for a medium to highwind all-round board. Werner Gnigler merged the advantages of the new Wave Slate with all the great abilities of the former Freestyle Wave generations. This makes them our fastest, liveliest and most maneuverable all-water toys ever. They accelerate in the flats, fly over chop, carve in waves and are a thrill to ride. You’ll just simply have your best time on the water – easy!
British Windsurf magazine described the former Freestyle Waves the best: “Forget small high wind freeride boards or large light wind wave boards … the freestyle-wave path is the ideal option for 99% of coastal-sailing recreational windsurfers.”
Most evident is the new outline of this shorter and more compact shape which improves the direct feel because of the reduced swing weight of the smaller nose.
The outline is more parallel in the mid-section creating additional surface area for better planing and more stability.
The tail width only got marginally wider to maintain the excellent control on fast runs over troubled water.
The “shorty” is more agile, quicker to respond and it also carves better in small waves without getting stuck.
The bottom features a newly developed Vee flow combined with concaves. The double concave Vee in the nose takes care of the comfort. It then transforms into a flat Vee under the straps which makes the board ride high and fly smoothly over chop.
The Vee steadily increases towards the tail which creates more rocker in the rails. When carving the rocker of the curvy rail line delivers outstanding maneuverability.
Due to the grip provided, you can carve as radical as you dare.
The domed deck grants a comfortable stance for all footstrap positions. The deck shape also offers perfect board control mixed with readiness to respond.
They might look somewhat radical and very different but they are simply the best Freestyle Waves we have ever made. They haven’t lost anything you used to find in the former Freestyle Wave boards but they offer so much more fun and performance without being difficult to ride.
From flatwater blasting, to freestyling and waveriding – they cover it all.
All those owners of former Freestyle Wave generations and many more will simply need one. Go and get one – you won’t regret it – GUARANTEED!
PRO = PRO EDITION Technology (thruster fin setup)
FWS = FULL WOOD SANDWICH Technology (single fin)
The FWS boards come with one Powerbox and a 2cm longer single fin than the PRO models and they are great bump&jump blasters.
The PRO boards additionally come with Mini Tuttle sidefin boxes, thruster fins and covers for the sidefin boxes when used as single fin. They are exceptional toys for all conditions, yet, they offer huge potential for further fine-tuning and thus increasing the fun and the performance in the whole range of use.
