2011 JP Wave Thruster 75 in great condition.

From the "Windsurf" test.

"We tested this board mainly as a thruster. A single-fin setup will make it a little quicker and more directional in a straight line, but not quite so good in the turns. In thruster mode the JP still feels very good in a straight line, so we saw little reason to remove them. Even with the thrusters in, the JP flies off the tail of the board in a straight line, feeling fast and exciting with good drive off the fins. It copes well with chop and has a comfortable and easy ride to it. Early planing and 'get up and go' are very good, as is the top end control, thanks to that well balanced ride.
On the wave the board feels fairly lose and agile. As with other thruster setups we've tried, the board seems to prefer bottom turning with a little more back foot pressure rather than driving hard through the rail of the board, where it can get a little bouncy at higher speeds on bigger waves. It feels relatively single-fin like, but does have a bit of extra potential to its top turn over a single-fin. Not quite as radical as a twin, but better than a single. It also seems good for backside riding, where the thrusters give a little extra grip for those hard snaps off the tail of the board.
However, it's in small waves and bump-&-jump conditions where this board really excels. It's fast and comfortable underfoot and great for jumping, but still agile enough to be snapped around off pieces of chop, making it a great choice for those choppy days at the coast when the waves fail to materialise."
