All of my other Boards are JP Freestyle Waves but I want a board purely for Freestylye! I would prefer to stick to JP but the boards mentioned above I can obtain relatively cheaply being 2nd hand. Also, I get the feeling the the JP Freestyle board is for the Freestyle pro and not punters like me.
Any comments or advise will be greatly appreciated.
All of those boatrds are good, however i've got the new RRD twin tip 105 and it's simply awesome! What i really like about it is the ability to do all the carving tricks which means that on light wind days when there waves then it works really well as well. Spocking is pretty easy too as all you need to do is vulcan and then put back foot pressure on and your round before you know it! Admittedly i'm a bit biased but just think that the JP's aren't great.
I also suggest the Chili. I've had alee F2 freestyle boards since the 1st compstyle and this years chili is undoubtfully the best of them all(with 2004 compstyle in 2nd).Joker is a little bit lazier and doesn't slide so well. Jp's are great ,but they have a little "werid" feeling.
If you like JP then stick with JP is my advice I'm on my 05 FS 100 after having had the 04 & 03 models and they're great all round boards for their size. I am no way a freestyler beyond old school carving m oves and can't fault them. I also have an 06 FSW 85 and the similarity between the two allowing for their differrent roles makes it ideal to switch from one to the other with little adjustment in teqchnique.
