JP freestyle Wave - good 85L option ? Second hand

Hi,

I am intersted in a new/replacement second board in my quiver.

I have a 276 103L flow as my main board but may go a bit bigger as
there are not many people where I sail so more float for safety. Maybe
a carve 111 or something like that.

I weigh about 160 pounds and am a competent sailer in bump & jump
coastal conditions. Looking for a board that is loose for fun &
learning better wave riding in not too well formed waves. Also for
higher winds on lakes.

The board I am looking for is approx 85L for 6m/5.5.m or lower
conditions. I am concerned about going too small as the beaches here
in Scotland are deserted and there is no safety cover. I have an older
approx 75L 263 B & J Tiga which is a real sinker and very difficult to
sail underpowered if the wind drops and to get going.

I am not looking at a new option so 2-4 years old second hand.
Something like a 2001-2002 JP freestyle wave 85ish L.
JP Wave 255 2001
Fanatic Rip 258 2002
etc

Any suggestions on a good board for this use.

Cheers Iain

Iain-
I don't know too much about that particular board, but I own a Naish
Wave 8'5" that I'm in love with for 6.0, 5.0, and 4.0 conditions.
But, I might present the option of staying away from a pure wave board
if you're worried about sub-planing. You might consider something
like a Starboard Carve 80 or a starboard evo because they offer so
much more width and stability. It can be the difference between
sub-planing and planing. Another option would be to look into a
freestyle type board like the Exocet Compact Move 84, a F2 Max 2 Air
254 (90 liters), but note that these boards probably won't be as
lively.

Re: JP freestyle Wave - good 85L option ? Second hand

The JP Free Style Wave is the rental board at Neil Pryde Maui. You can
buy a used one at a fairly decent price. Good Luck
