The Comp earns its name our performance competition shape, blending speed with agility. Starting with the bottom curve, the Comp features a relatively flat tail rocker for speed and acceleration with a medium/high nose rocker for larger surf and more top to bottom riding.
The outline is comprised of a moderate width center, for early planing and drive, with a relatively narrow tail for edging and snap, and narrow nose to drive through powered top turns.
We moved the thruster setup back to compensate for the fast rocker, keeping all the snap of a high tail rocker board, without sacrificing speed. If you need one wave board to perform in any conditions you throw at it, the Comp is your board of choice.

Reflex Bamboo combines incredible flex with a durable sandwich outer layer, making it ideal for the rider looking for a bombproof and reliable performance construction.
The unique bamboo top deck progressive flex is achieved through a variable orientation, where the nose area features a longitudinally oriented bamboo section, the center section a 45-degree bias, and the tail section a horizontal orientation.
Using the same medium density core as our Custom Epoxy construction, but have removed the traditional wood stringer and have added a flex bamboo sandwich layer and an additional longitudinally oriented bamboo center panel on the bottom deck.
To top this off we include a UD Flax rail, which strengthens the rail section while improving impact resistance. UD Flax offers nearly 50% better performance in tensile elongation than regular glass, with significantly improved environmental credentials.
The Reflex Bamboo shapes do not have footstrap inserts. If you use the new AK stick on straps, insert positions are
1: Wingers reduce width in tail area for control and bite at speed.
2: Intermediate tail rocker combining planing and snap.
3: Intermediate width for high speed turns and control.
4: Intermediate wide point combining turning and control at speed.
5: Intermediate length for control and maneuverability.
6: Intermediate width nose for improved completion of turns.
7: Intermediate nose rocker combining planing and vert capabilities.
8: Tail - 4mm Single concave.
9: Mid - 4mm Single concave.
10: Nose - 1.5mm Single concave.
11: Intermediate performance rail.
Our ongoing quest is to develop the highest performing Directional Surf and Foil Kiteboards on the market, while reducing our environmental impact. As an industry first, we have teamed up with Sustainable Surf to develop a full line of Directional Surf and Foil Kiteboards that comply and exceed the Ecoboard fundamentals of:
• A measurably reduced carbon footprint.
• Renewable, recycled and/or up-cycled material inputs.
• Optimizing materials and processes that reduce toxicity during manufacturing.
All Airush surf directional kiteboards are Futures. compatible.
