• Dedicated Down the line Shape
• New 5’9” Size for high wind and lighter riders
• Patented Active Construction

The Converse is Airush’s dedicated down the line shape, developed without compromise to destroy any wave you put in front of it.

The Patented Active Construction has proven itself as the absolute benchmark in surf constructions, with the lightest weight possible achieved through the Active Stringer and Flexible Carbon Sandwich Construction.

The high tail rocker works together with the ¾ hip section and the rounded pin tail to maximises the manoeuvrability enabling massive off the top snaps and tight driving bottom turns. The higher entry rocker through the nose enable the Converse to fit vertically into the steepest wave section and combines with the narrower nose width, to pull the nose around when setting a rail in a bottom turn or driving a more powerful full rail top turn.

The longest of the Airush surf range, this additional outline length enhances stability at speed, making the converse ideal for bigger surf, down the line surf and high wind conditions.

Available in Active (Green), Flytech (Blue) and Flex Carbon (Red) Technology.

New for 2016, the Airush Flex Carbon Technology features a high-density closed cell polyurethane core with a Flexible Carbon top deck for durability and response.

This construction has been developed to mimic the feel of a traditional PU surfboard, while still being able to deal with the additional load placed on a surf directional when kiting. This is achieved through the use of the Biaxial Carbon Fiber top deck, which adds significant strength while remaining lightweight. The Biaxial orientation allows the laminate to maintain a very high level of flex.

The high density PU core limits any water adsorption in the case of any damage to the outside skin, making it ideal for traveling.



The lightest construction on the market today, the Patented Active Technology combines revolutionary flex and strength in a full carbon construction for unparalleled performance.

The Key to the Active Stringers strength is the stiff and ultra lightweight carbon I-beam through the centre of the board. This prevents the board from over flexing and damaging the laminate when flexing beyond the working range. The secret to the Active Technology flex is the high memory polypropylene flex zone, which works in conjunction with the flexible bi-axial carbon skins to flex and compress within the working range.

The combination gives a perfect blend of maximum flex and minimum weight, with maximum durability.


The Flytech construction comprises of a lightweight EPS core with a sandwich hi-density standing area, for an excellent combination of strength and lightweight. Due to the lightweight core, the Flytech construction makes use of additional layers of glass fiber, resulting in an extremely durable outside skin making it ideal for everyday riding.
