JP Slalom 2011 – PWA Winner 2010
The JP Slalom VII 2011 is Antoine Albeau´s winner boards from the PWA tour 2010, and like the Starboard iSonic 2011 pretty hard-core when it comes to gybing. The JP Slalom Range is divided into following two groups:
JP Slalom for small, medium and large riders
Width 56 / Liter 81
Width 65 / Liter 101
Width 76 / Liter 121

JP Slalom for XL, XXL and XXXL riders
Width 59 cm / Liter 92
Width 68 cm / Liter 112
Width 82 cm / Liter 132
The line is designed for guys like Antoine Albeau.

Jp Slalom VII – To Hard Core?
Windsurf (UK) March 2011 – JP Slalom VII 112 test 2011
The bottom shape. In the hull there are double concaves in the front for acceleration, into flat vee in the tail for control at top speed.
There really doesn’t seem to be a limit to the top end of JP Slalom and it is very easy to exploit, you just need to hold on tight! When you get to the corners, the JP Slalom maintains good speed through the gybe. It is not however the most forgiving in the turns, so you might be left playing catch up on the straights.

Comfortable at max speed Quick to plane, light and lively at top speed. Low nose volume makes it difficult to tack.
