The Airush Switch Progression 2018 takes the ever-popular design and construction of the Switch into a super easy and comfortable board to start and continue your kiteboarding progression.

The Switch Progression Features The Airush Multi-zone Biotech construction, this is a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. The Progression range construction design with an ABS rail makes sure that your board stays strong and can handle impact through one’s progressing stages.
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. They are combined with a versatile combination of laminates depending on each model’s requirement, for all-round performance and durability.
The Airush Switch Progression 2018 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 & Rails
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 progression range is also constructed with an abs rail. Making sure that your board stays strong and can handle impact through one’s progressing stages.
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: Extra curve along the rail, having the tips narrower in relation to the central width. This allows for smooth carving and easy rail to rail transitioning.
Freeride Continuous Rocker
This is Airush’s freeride oriented rocker that delivers the ideal balance between control, ease of planing and smooth transitioning for the ultimate freeride experience.
Airush introduced the FMS rating 6 years ago 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, while a higher rated stiffer board is more suited to freestyle. The Airush Switch Progression has an FMS rating of 5.
