- Dedicated down-the-line shape.
- High rocker design for maximum snap.
- Narrow width for maximum control.
The Converse is our dedicated down-the-line shape, developed without compromise to destroy any wave you put in front of it.
The high tail rocker works together with the three-quarter hip section and the rounded pin tail to maximize maneuverability, enabling massive off-the-top snaps and tight, driving bottom turns. The higher entry rocker through the nose enables the Converse to fit vertically into the steepest wave section.
When driving off the bottom or setting up for a more powerful full rail top turn, the narrower nose width pulls the nose around just when you need it.
As the longest of the Airush surf range, the additional rail length enhances stability at speed, making the Converse ideal for bigger down-the-line waves, while the narrower width also suits high wind conditions.

Custom Epoxy offers the flex and feel of a classic surfboard, with the increased durability of the kite specific construction.
We start with a medium-density EPS core (35 Kg/per m3, for the tech heads) developed from our premium fused EPS technology. When using a single skin construction, a denser core is ideal, specifically in the thinner, lower volume boards, such as the Converse.
Covering the core, the laminate has been extensively reinforced to deal with the demands of kiting with up to five layers in the standing area, and a final layer of Innegra under the heels. Innegra is the lightest fiber commercially available (lighter than water) and can dissipate tremendous amounts of energy, making it ideal for high impact areas.

1: Curve in the hip & tail area for maximum snap off the top.
2: Most tail rocker for turning and control.
3: Narrowest width for high speed turns and control.
4: The wide point on the Converse is further back to keep the board loose and responsive.
5: Longest length for most control at speed.
6: Most nose rocker for vertical surf.
7: Narrowest nose to pull the nose around in top turns.
8: Tail - 1.5mm Single concave, blending to 1mm Panel V.
9: Mid - 2mm Single concave.
10: Nose - 1mm Single concave.
11: High performance rail.
ECOBOARD PROJECT APPROVED
Our ongoing quest is to develop the highest performing Directional Surf and Foil Kiteboards on the market, while reducing our environmental impact. As an industry first, we have teamed up with Sustainable Surf to develop a full line of Directional Surf and Foil Kiteboards that comply and exceed the Ecoboard fundamentals of:
• A measurably reduced carbon footprint
• Renewable, recycled and/or up-cycled material inputs
• Optimizing materials and processes that reduce toxicity during manufacturing
All Airush surf directional kiteboards are Futures. compatible.
