The Radical Quad has been in the JP line for four years due to its benchmark in wave performance. Nevertheless, our team riders dreamed of an update – a new and better version of the board considered the most radical on the market. The result is Werner Gnigler’s development of an outstanding design which merges the virtues of its predecessors – the Radical Quad’s looseness, reactivity and rail bite and the planing power and speed of the Thruster Quad. Consequently, a name was chosen which says it all – The Ultimate Wave!
Riding the Ultimate Wave, you’ll immediately notice how quickly it jumps onto the plane and how much faster it rides. Werner states: “The completely new bottom concept brought the crucial breakthrough in the development.” It features a flat V in the front, which transforms into a double concave in the middle, then into a deep single concave under the foot straps, and tapers off with a gentle V right at the tail. This creates a flatter scoop rocker line in the middle but keeps the curvy one on the rail. The flat centre line delivers the speed and planing power that matches the former Thruster Quad.
