JBAY.ZONE SUP COMET J2
The Stand Up Paddling is the sporting phenomenon of the moment, born as a variant of surfing, it is practiced standing upright on a board, rigid or inflatable, moving paddling with a special oar. Engaging with a SUP is very fun 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-term presence in the Water Sports sector and the consequent great experience gained have allowed JBAY.ZONE to reinterpret the tested "Longboard" design in a new and more intriguing way, offering to the users of the COMET SUPs, innovative Touring Boards.
COMET by JBAY.ZONE is a line that includes Stand Up Paddles perfect for long distance hikes with prolonged stay on the Board, particularly resistant and long-lasting. For the construction of the SUP COMET J2, JBAY.ZONE used Double Layer Laminated PVC. The inner layer forms the air chamber containing the DROP-STITCH filaments, which ensure performance and hardness equal to a rigid table once reached the ideal pressure of 15PSI. The inner tube is in turn covered with a further layer of laminated PVC, to greatly increase the resistance of the Stand Up Paddle and guarantee a longer life with an even more effective weight support.
The J2 table has a 320x81cm Deck, comfortable and stable. It has an anti-slip Eva Foam Pad that helps to maintain better balance and, along the edges, a series of steel D-Rings are inserted for the connection of accessories such as the Safety Leash or the comfortable seat for the transformation of the SUP COMET J2 in kayak, sold separately. There are 3 stabilization fins, two side fixed and one central removable, positioned in the rear of the Paddleboard. The classic elastic cord to carry equipment safely is at the front of the Deck. Common to all JBAY.ZONE SUPs, also on the COMET Stand Up Paddle, the valve used is an High Pressure type with bayonet safety coupling. To inflate the table just move the central pin of the valve to the correct position, connect the Bravo double action pump supplied with the SUP J2, and start pumping air. The valve allows air to enter but not to escape, without the risk of suffering pressure loss. By placing the valve in the open position instead, the air escapes freely facilitating and optimizing the emptying of the air chamber.
One of the great innovations of the 2019 SUPs is that JBAY.ZONE has decided to include in the standard accessories of its Paddleboards, a comfortable support for Action Cam GoPro HERO, ideal for making shots directly from the Board, keeping your hands free to grab the paddle, in fact the Mount can be installed directly on the Deck of the SUP. The second highlight of the JBAY.ZONE 2019 SUP is certainly the already mentioned double action Bravo pump. This 2x2000cc inflator is equipped with a mode selector to quickly switch from the double action mode, where the piston works both on the outward and on the return, to the single action mode, where the pump will only work during movement in one direction. The change of mode is useful when, close to reaching the ideal inflation pressure, the pump could start to stiffen and therefore require more energy to complete the inflation of the table. Furthermore in the Starter kit of the COMET J2 SUP there is an extensible aluminum paddle with inclined PVC blade, a bag to carry the deflated SUP together with its accessories and a fantastic Safety Leash too.
