The 2019 Airush Switch Core is one of Airush’s most popular boards and we’re a fan of it too. It’s on our go to list of freeride boards that’s great for carving around, smooth though chop and responsive enough when you want to load it for jumps. A great allrounder for beginner to intermediate riders.
- Ultimate freeride machine.
- Smooth cruising full flex tips.
- Cross Bracing technology.
The longest running board model in kiteboarding history, the Switch is the ultimate and most refined freeride machine. Recent significant changes in the 3D deck contouring has improved the flex characteristics for excellent comfort and weight reduction which gives this board a smoother and livelier riding experience.
The Airush Multi-zone Biotech Construction is a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich; this multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. This core construction allows us to design the boards with a broad thickness variance throughout the deck. The Flex Tip technology featured on our Switch range orients the board’s stiffness through the center between the rider’s feet. This increases stability under foot while allowing the tips of the board to flex freely which results in an ultra-smooth and comfortable ride.
The cross-bracing technology supports the flexible tips from over flexing, which increases durability by orienting composite tape diagonally across the tips of the board.
