This year, Easy Surf, as the exclusive distributor of GA SAILS in Poland, has provided me with a full range of Vapor sail, which I will use during the PWA and IFCA.
Today we present to you with a complete novelty designed by Fabian Vollenweider, the Tabou Fifty which we had the opportunity to test recently!
During the long weekend, we had the opportunity to test an inflatable board for the family, designed strictly for windsurfing. I didn't believe in this concept myself, and in the fact that such a board can glide, or even give so much pleasure! But more on that later. First some information. We had a JP-Australia Magic Air 150 board at our disposal, and a NeilPryde Fusion HD sail in the size of 6.5 m2. I would like to point out right away, that I usually use a freestyle set: 93l board and sails in sizes 4.0 - 4.8, so the test set quite differ from mine 😉 In the JP Magic Air set we have 4 foot straps, a RIDE 44cm fin made in Glass technology, a pump and a repair kit. Folded board (with attached straps) fits into the backpack the same as inflatable SUPs, so no more fighting with luggage straps and a roof rack. The backpack itself is well made with high-quality materials, and the large and strong wheels, which make it easy to carry. The whole thing, i.e. the board, backpack, pump and accessories, weighs approx. 15 kg.
After such a positive response to my JP-Australia Magic Air review, I am pleased to continue my work. This time I took a set for the workshop, which in my opinion will be a great choice for the Bay of Puck - JP-Australia Freestyle Wave PRO 114l with the NeilPryde Atlas PRO 5.4 sail. And here again my freestyle soul told me, but how is 114l in a Freestyle Wave board and a 5-batten wave sail, it must be clunky, unpleasant and bleee at all. Nevertheless, reading all the ahs and ohs about the previous Freestyle Wave years on various foreign portals, I approached it as a tester befits, i.e. with the so-called open mind.
After the Freestyle Wave PRO 114l test, it was time for the JP-Australia Super Ride LXT 113l mentioned in the previous publication . This board was a huge unknown for me, because it is the only model from the JP freeride trio that I have never had under my feet. The Super Ride is the "middle" model in the JP-Australia range of freeride boards, between the calmer and beginner-friendly Magic Ride and the more sporty and performance-driven Super Sport.
Hello! A few days ago, I got my hands on another "lake" setup, but this time from an entirely different toy stable. I'm talking about the JP Australia Super Sport 133 board in the PRO version and the legendary Neilpryde V8 sail in size 8.2. First up is the board, which I can honestly say I have a love and hate relationship with.
It's about time for our impressions after six months of using the production version of the Fly. The Fly made its entry into the market this year, marking a historic moment as Neil Pryde's first foray into the world of wingfoiling. Designed by Nils Rosenblad, known for his work on Pryde sails and equipment used in the America's Cup, it's no surprise that the Fly incorporates technical solutions and concepts that have been tried and tested in windsurfing sails for years.
