The fast and versatile freewave board for a broad range of conditions. The fast rocker, thin rails and thruster fin setup come together to improve the new Kode FreeWaves’ wave performance while keeping their top speed and directional traction. They offer amazing versatility, performing equally well on flat water, chop or waves.
Outline: Moderately wide outline provides stability in sub-planing conditions. New narrower nose on the bigger models helps to initiate the turns and reduce nose drag. Plenty of volume in the tail provides buoyancy and speed out of the jibe.
Rails: Relatively thin and sharp rails enhance grip and control in the turns while providing drive. Slightly thick in the tail adds forgiveness while a sharp edge gives planing release. Extra soft in the nose for smoother, fuller grip during fully committed rail carves.
Rocker: Everything is built around a fast rocker with a low nose angle to reduce drag, maximize control and top speed. A flat section between the mast track and front footstrap promotes early planing and just the right amount of tail-kick makes for responsive waveriding.
Bottom Shape: “Accelerating Vee” combined with a new double concave bottom provides responsiveness with added grip and quick reactivity, added control and comfort, without compromises on top speed and in all sea conditions. Accelerating Flat Vee in the tail helps quick rail-to-rail transitions off the back foot.
Fins: Thruster setup for all Kode FreeWaves further boosts waveriding ability with improved responsiveness, grip and control without sacrificing speed. Each Kode size is tested and tuned for the perfect fin combination: for speed, traction, control, upwind power and grip.
Fast rocker with more consistent tail kick across the range. Windsurf magazine described it as an inspiring, fantastically tunable platform all about speed.
