JBAY.ZONE COMET J3 iSUP
The Stand Up Paddling is the sporting phenomenon of the moment, born as a surf variant, it is practiced in the water while standing in balance on a board, rigid or inflatable, moving by rowing with a special paddle. Engaging with a SUP is easy and relaxing and is also a great workout to keep fit while having fun. The use of a SUP is suitable for everyone without particular skills or abilities required.
The long-standing presence in the Water Sports sector and the consequent great experience gained have allowed JBAY.ZONE, for its SUP COMETs, to reinterpret the classic "Longboard" style design in a new and more fascinating way, offering to users an innovative and very beautiful Boards. COMET by JBAY.ZONE is a line that includes Stand Up Paddles perfect for long distance hikes and prolonged stay on the table, particularly resistant and long-lasting.
For the construction of the COMET J3 SUP, JBAY.ZONE used double-layered Laminated PVC, where the inner layer forms the chamber with the DROP-STITCH HDT filaments inside, which ensure performance and resistance equal to those of a rigid board, once inflated to the ideal pressure of 15PSI. The inner tube is then in turn covered with a further layer of laminated PVC, to greatly increase the resistance of the Stand Up Paddle and ensure a longer life with an even more effective weight support than a PVC Paddleboard single layer.
The J3 table has a 350x81cm deck, comfortable and stable with an anti-slip Eva Foam Pad that helps maintain better balance and, along the edges, a series of steel D-Rings for the connection of accessories such as the Safety leash or the comfortable seat for converting the SUP COMET J3 into a kayak, sold separately. 3 are the stabilization fins, two side and a removable central, positioned in the rear of the Paddleboard.
Common to all JBAY.ZONE SUPs, even on the COMET Stand Up Paddle the valve is of the High Pressure type with bayonet safety coupling. To inflate the Board, simply move the central pin of the valve to the correct position, connect the double-acting Bravo pump supplied with SUP J3, and start pumping air. The valve allows air to enter but not to escape, thus avoiding the risk of a loss of pressure even if the inflation hose is disconnected from the valve. By adjusting the valve in the open position instead, the air escapes freely facilitating and optimizing the emptying of the air chamber. The double-action Bravo pump supplied with the JBAY.ZONE SUPs is certainly one of the great innovations designed for 2019. This 2x2000cc inflator is equipped with a mode selector to quickly switch between the double action mode, where the piston works and the 'gone than on the way back, to the single-action mode, where the pump will only work with movement in one direction. The change of mode is useful when, close to reaching the ideal inflation pressure of the SUP, the pump could start to stiffen, thus requiring more energy to complete the inflation of the table.
A comfortable GoPro HERO Action Cam support is inserted in all the 2019 JBAY.ZONE SUPs, ideal for shooting directly from the table, keeping your hands free to grab the paddle by installing the support directly on the COMET J3 Deck.
