Ion Ballistic 6/5 are really incredibly warm boots! Personally tested by our team in the cold February weather of 2015 with temperatures of air and water not more than 5-7⁰
Hurry, because the number of surf wetsuits in SurfPM warehouse is sensibly decreasing.

JP Universal Nose Protector

Made of EVA, the JP NOSE PROTECTOR UNI is a very light yet strong protection. It is easy to handle as it is simply glued to the nose. The set consists of 5 pieces: 2 side parts (one Left and one Right), and 3 connections in sizes Small, Medium and Large. By combining the two sides with the appropriate connection at the front, noses of almost all standard board sizes and shapes can be covered efficiently. This makes it an universal protector not only for JP boards but for all boards available on the market.

CONSTRUCTION: Top-, Middle- and Bottom Layer
The hard top plastic prevents scratches and spreads the load to the middle layer consisting of high density EVA, further disperses the energy to the soft, low density EVA Bottom Layer which absorbs the load.

MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS:
a. Prepare the materials:
– Adhesive (glue): Contact glue (e.g. Pattex Classic), Epoxy based 2K glues (e.g. UHU plus), Super Glue (e.g. Loctite), or any water prove and UV-stable power adhesives (read the instruction of the glue carefully to ensure it works)
– Tape
– Pencil
– Squeegee
– Sandpaper (80-100)
– Protective gloves
– Cleaning material

b. How to choose the right size of the front part: The nose protector shall be positioned as close to the outline (rail) of the board as possible. Therefore the biggest fitting connection shall be used. Due to the soft material and the flexible construction, the left and right part can be adjusted by bending them into the right position (parallel along the outline
of the board) Mark the right position of the protector on the board with a pencil.

c. How to fix the Nose Protector on a windsurfing board:
Glue the left, right part and connection together, and wait until the glue is dry! The surface of board and protector shall be dry and free of any oil and dust. Clean with standard commercial substances (e.g. white spirit) and sand the surfaces if necessary. Read and follow the instruction of the used adhesive carefully. Apply the adhesive in the marked area and if requested as well onto the nose protector (e.g. with  Pattex). Put the Nose Protector into position (start from the nose) and press firmly. Fix it firmly with tape until the glue is totally dry. Remove the tape.
