2012 Starboard Kodes

Starboard introduce their new wave freestyle boards – the Kode Freestyle Waves blend wave, freestyle and freeride. Their nature is to be aggressive, fast and manoeuvrable.

The three smallest sizes are most wave orientated. They fit the classic description of ‘down-the-line sideshore wave boards’. Their speed and maneuverability make them good freestylers as well, although windsurfers nowadays may find them too small for anything other than the occasional high-wind move.

The three middle sizes are a balanced blend between wave, freestyle and freeride. 86 litres remains a popular size for wave riding, so the 86 maintains a strong wave emphasis. The 94 and 103 are the best freestylers and high-wind freeriders.

The two largest sizes are mostly freeride-oriented, since their size does not fit with the generally-accepted wave or freestyle volumes. They can best be seen as engaging, maneuverable alternatives in the freeride segment.

The Kode Freestyle Waves are exclusively single fin boards.
