Airush are another brand quick to grasp the surf nettle. They've developed two very specific shapes for surfers - the Converse 6'2" and the Converse 5'0". The 6'0" is a full cross-over board for both kiting and free surfing. It features the only 'on the fly' strap and front pad configuration that can be set by hand, allowing you to switch from strapped to unstrapped quickly and easily on the beach. The 5'0" has been developed in conjunction with wave-master Julien Sudrat, and is dedicated to those wave specialists looking for cutting edge performance in a surf shape. Both are built with Flytech construction for its low density and resulting light weight quality - invaluable in such a high volume board. The Flytech construction also allows for a shaped tucked rail and flex similar to a polyester surfboard.
