Airush Switch Core V9 2019
The Airush Switch Core 2019 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 as well as being grippy and responsive when you want to load it for jumps. Plus the flex pattern and base shape give soft and comfortable landings. A great allrounder for beginner to advanced riders.
Airush Switch Core V9 2019
- 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.
- All new refined and redesigned 3D shape

This classic layup found on the Switch and Switch Progression is focused on durability and responsiveness, ensuring a perfect combination for freeriding needs. This construction is simple yet effective for soft, easy and forgiving riding.
Multizone Biotech Core
The Airush Multizone Biotech Construction is a vertical paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. The wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and smoothness, and are combined with a versatile combination of laminates depending on each model’s requirement, for all-round performance and durability.
The Switch is designed with Progressive Independent Flex Tips and a more progressive continuous rocker line. These flex tips allow for a responsive and smooth ride in choppier and high swell conditions.
ABS Reinforced Inserts
No more pulled or broken inserts from hard landings or crashes. Featured on all Airush boards, the ABS reinforced inserts create the ultimate amount of durability whether riding with boots or straps.
The Ultra-Flex tip shape and narrow tip outline found in the Switch & Switch Sonic ranges is designed to give the most forgiving and softest ride in our range.
1: Center Spine: Reduced stiffness around the tips to maintain a high level of stability underfoot to prevent unwanted distortion.
2: Venturi Concave: Increased planing ability, allowing for a more user-friendly, forgiving, ride.
3: Freeride Outline: With extra curve along the rail, having the tips narrower in relation to the central width allows for smooth carving and easy rail to rail transitioning.
Freeride Continuous Rocker
This is Airush’s freeride oriented rocker and it delivers the ideal balance between control, ease of planing and smooth transitioning for the ultimate freeride experience.
FMS Rating 6.5/10
Airush introduced FMS rating as the first brand to quantify how much a twintip flexes. Instead of the good old “feel” test, which can be very deceptive due to the impact of the length on the overall stiffness, FMS takes into account the board’s length and deflection. A lower rating indicates a softer board more suited to freeride, and higher-rated stiffer boards are more suited to freestyle.
